Orthodontics

Braces are the most common way to straighten crooked teeth, close gaps or improve problems with bite. A brace offers the most effective, safe and precise way of moving teeth whilst significantly improving the look, function and health of your mouth.

For younger patients, braces are generally very effective. Any issues can be rectified quickly and successfully. Treatment in the younger years can also significantly help improve facial features and address any problems with speech.

Tooth straightening is now a very popular treatment in adults. There are many reasons for this. Some may have missed the chance of orthodontic treatment in childhood, others may not have been keen on the thought of noticeable metal braces or have discovered that orthodontic treatment undertaken in childhood has since relapsed.

If you are considering straightening your teeth you’ll be pleased to hear that metal braces are no longer the only way to a beautiful, straight smile. Instead there are a number of highly discreet, convenient, comfortable and affordable options available.

At Oakleigh House our patients are referred locally to Orthodontists in the area that we have been using for many years for the provision of fixed and removable braces following a consultation. Within the practice we are pleased to be able to offer the INMAN ALIGNER SYSTEM – a short term form of orthodontics to correct mild crowding or repositionng of teeth.

WHICH BRACE IS FOR ME?

Fixed braces:

With fixed braces, metal brackets are attached directly to the surface of the teeth. Thin metal wires are inserted through the brackets and held in place with elastics. Over the following weeks and months, this wire is bent and shaped to help slowly move teeth to their desired position.

Lingual braces can be attached to the inside surfaces of the teeth for a less noticeable fixed option.

Removable braces:

A removable brace comprises of a plastic arch which sits in the top of the mouth. Wires are attached as required to hold the teeth in place. During treatment, the plastic arch expands pushing the teeth into their new positions.

Removable braces must be worn for at least 22 hours of the day for best effect.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

It’s important to pay extra attention to your teeth when you are wearing braces- especially if they are fixed:
