IS ORTHODONTICS ONLY FOR TEENS?

When we think of orthodontics, very often our minds immediately go to the image of a young adult with a mouth full of metal. This is not the reality – orthodontics have evolved to offer solutions for adults, as well as being far less visually invasive.
Traditionally, orthodontics is used to treat malocclusion (a misaligned bite) which can result in numerous dental issues down the line. However, orthodontics are now also used to give a better aesthetic shape to the smile and the jawline.
No matter your age, our expert team at Family Dental Care are ready to assess your dentition and suggest the best course of orthodontic treatment.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are an alternative orthodontic approach to straightening and correcting teeth – except without metal brackets, wires, screws and elastics.

This modern treatment has the ability to straighten most smiles within a minimum of 6 months. Some cases may require more time but this is the average smile transformation period.

Braces & Retainers

Braces consist of a series of metal brackets, wires, and plastic bands that are all adjusted throughout the treatment duration.

Once your braces are removed after some time, a customised retainer needs to be worn to ensure that the newly positioned teeth do not shift back to their old positions.
