Straighten your teeth for a beautiful smile

A beautiful smile is made up of two things – great oral health and straight teeth.

Orthodontic treatment at Align & Smile

Orthodontics is a specialist field of dentistry which focuses on aligning your teeth and jaws. This alignment is achieved through a range of orthodontic appliances, such as braces, aligners or functional appliances.

For the very best orthodontic treatment results your teeth need to be in optimal health, which is why it’s important to continue to visit our team of dentists. However, if we believe you could benefit from orthodontic treatment, we’ll recommend you have a free consultation with our orthodontists.

At this free consultation, they’ll assess your teeth and jaws to determine how extensive your orthodontic issues might be. For example, you may have large gaps between your teeth or too little space which causes your teeth to crowd each other. Your upper teeth may jut out over your bottom teeth causing an overbite. These are the types of problems we’ll recommend you to an orthodontist for.

Types of braces

At Align & Smile, our team of specialist orthodontists are experienced using a range of appliances, including:
Invisalign aligners: these clear plastic aligners can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing you’re having treatment. What’s more, Invisalign aligners are removable so you can take them out when eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth.

Traditional metal braces: this appliance is what most people think of when they hear ‘orthodontic treatment’. Traditional metal braces use brackets, archwires and elastics to apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into position.

Clear braces: these are just like traditional metal braces except for the fact that the brackets which are bonded to your teeth and the archwires which connect them are made from clear material so they blend in with the colour of your teeth.

Lingual braces: these braces are virtually invisible because although they use the system of brackets and archwire that traditional metal braces do, the appliance is fitted to the inside of your teeth next to your tongue, making them go unnoticed to those around you.

Benefits of orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatment is beneficial for patients of all ages. Early orthodontic consultations are recommended for children between the ages of seven and 11 to help reduce the need for extensive orthodontic treatment later in life; teenagers can benefit from orthodontic treatment while their jaws are still soft and teeth move easily. We are also treating more and more adult patients who, like us, believe it’s never too late to have the smile you’ve always wanted.
Other benefits of orthodontic treatment include:

  • Greater self-confidence
  • Better oral health (straight teeth are easier to keep clean)
  • Better digestive health (straighter teeth can help you chew your food properly)
  • Reduced risk of injury (protruding teeth can be more easily injured)
  • More attractive facial profile
