Poorly aligned teeth may require orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics uses braces and other devices to apply pressure to your teeth over time to gradually move one or more teeth into their correct positions.
Today, braces are available in a variety of materials including tooth coloured ceramics that are less noticeable than traditional stainless steel braces. Invisible plastic aligners worn like a sheer mouthguard may also be an option. Often we might suggest orthodontics in adults and children to improve not only appearance, but chewing function and better cleaning.
Orthodontics may also be integrated into a treatment plan to compensate for teeth compromised by decay or lost through an accident. We can refer complex cases to specialist orthodontists and coordinate tooth movement with restorative treatment.
