Benefits of Orthodontics in Surrey

Straighter teeth not only make a significant difference to your long-term oral health, but they can also massively improve your self-esteem – making chatting with colleagues, laughing with friends and smiling for family photos a breeze!

Properly aligned teeth are also much easier to keep clean, and maintaining good oral hygiene is the key to reducing your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease – the UK’s leading causes of tooth loss.

As well as all this, teeth that properly fit together to form a fully functional bite can also protect muscles in the jaw and mouth, preventing the onset of headaches and neck pain – both of which can result from a misaligned bite – and orthodontics in Surrey can help with this.

Orthodontics Surrey - Portmore Dental

The different types of orthodontic treatments on offer at Portmore Dental

When it comes to orthodontics, there is a huge range of treatments on offer across different orthodontists in Surrey, and depending on the specifics of your orthodontic issue, your dentist will usually provide you with one or more options that best suit your needs. There are two main types of orthodontic treatments, which are:

Fixed braces – these are usually made using metal brackets which are fixed to the teeth using a special type of glue. These braces apply gentle pressure to individual teeth to move the position of your teeth gradually over time.

Removable braces – if you only need a small amount of correction, or you’re looking for a way to maintain the position of a smile that’s previously been treated with braces, then a removable option may be best. These usually have a plastic plate that covers the roof of the mouth, with wires that clip onto some of the teeth.

However, within each of these two categories, there is a wide range of options available, which include:

During your initial consultation with your Weybridge orthodontist, the positioning of your teeth will be assessed, and you may have an x-ray or impressions taken of your teeth. This will help the dentist determine how your teeth might change over time, and what sort of orthodontic solution will get you to your desired place most safely and efficiently.

Here at Portmore Dental, we exclusively offer short-term solutions, and patients of ours can choose between Invisalign and Six Month Smiles when they come to us, depending on their requirements.

How can the different types of orthodontic treatments benefit you?

If you know that you’re unhappy with the positioning of your teeth, then braces are likely already on your radar, and you may have even decided on the kind of brace you’d like to have. As we’ve said though, not every type of brace will be right for every individual, and it does differ depending on the nature of the issue.

To get a more realistic idea of the type of braces that you might be able to benefit from, it can be helpful to understand how each different type of brace works and the individual advantages it can offer. So, to help we’ve gone into more detail about the benefits of the orthodontic options we have available:

Invisalign – Certainly one of the most popular treatment options, Invisalign is almost invisible and offers a bespoke, comfortable, easy-to-maintain way of straightening your teeth. Usually, treatment times are shorter with Invisalign, and you’re not restricted with what you can eat because you can simply remove aligners during mealtimes.

Six Month Smiles – If you’re looking for fast results, Six Month Smiles might be a great option for you. These use clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, making them a more subtle version of traditional metal braces, which focus entirely on the cosmetic appearance of the teeth that show when you smile.

ORTHODONTICS IN WEYBRIDGE FAQ’S

Orthodontics is a type of specialist dentistry that’s used to treat a wide range of dental issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth

Whilst the most common time to start orthodontic treatment is between 11 and 14 years, there is no age limit. Our experienced orthodontists in Weybridge can provide treatment for children, teens, and adults.

So, if you wish to improve any of the aforementioned dental imperfections, it’s likely you could benefit from our orthodontics in Weybridge – and we’d love to hear from you.

The simple answer is it depends on the severity of your case and the type of brace.

As a general rule of thumb for our orthodontics in Weybridge, we recommend that patients visit our practice every 4-6 weeks. This way, we can determine whether the treatment is working, tighten the braces, replace wires, or make any other necessary adjustments.

However, we assess every case individually and will always advise you if you need to attend more or fewer appointments.

Here at Portmore Dental, we do everything we can to ensure that your orthodontics in Weybridge is as painless and comfortable as possible.

The process of fitting the appliance itself shouldn’t be too painful, but it generally depends on how strong your pain threshold is.

Although you may experience some discomfort hours after the procedure – and some aching and tenderness once the teeth start to move – this usually wears off within a few days. You can take over-the-counter painkillers to alleviate it, if necessary.

The price you’ll pay for orthodontics in Weybridge can vary depending on the type of brace used and the severity of the case.

Here at Portmore, we can assure you that we use only the best cosmetic orthodontic systems, including Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, and our orthodontists are dedicated to helping patients achieve their desired results in less time.

We advise anyone seeking treatment to arrange a free consultation so we can discuss your requirements in more detail, examine your teeth, and take x-rays.

During this appointment, we can also create an appropriate treatment plan and outline the costs involved.

If your finances have been holding you back from rectifying your dental imperfections, don’t worry. We provide payment options to make orthodontics in Weybridge more affordable for you.
