Orthodontics is an important branch of dentistry that mainly focuses on the correction of the jaw and teeth when they are misaligned or not properly positioned. It can be quite a challenging task to keep crooked or misaligned teeth clean, and failure to do so may lead to tooth decay or infections. Orthodontic treatments such as tooth extractions, braces and crowns can be performed with our dentists in Kew and help improve the overall health and appearance of your teeth and mouth.
Orthodontic treatment can help correct the alignment and position of your teeth. Your facial structure may even be changed for the better with effective treatment. Our dentists in Kew possess extensive training and knowledge to provide personalised, effective and professional treatments.
Taking your child to see an orthodontist can be very important to ensure issues such as overbites, underbites, teeth crowding and a narrow jaw are identified and treated as early as possible. These types of treatments offered by our dentists in Kew are especially effective between the ages of seven and ten, as your child’s jaw is still growing and can be easily adjusted. Even if there is no apparent reason to take your child to see an orthodontist, it is important to make sure their teeth are developing properly and will have no obvious issues in the future. Some issues are not visible and will need to be investigated by an orthodontist.
To get the best results from your orthodontic teeth straightening, mild but constant pressure will need to be applied to the teeth. Our dentists in Kew offer traditional metal braces and an invisible alternative. There may be some cases where metal braces have to be used.
Most people will be required to wear braces for between one and three years, depending on the complexity and severity of the issues, and on the level of oral hygiene maintained by the patient. Keeping a good level of oral hygiene, wearing auxiliaries, avoiding potentially damaging foods and attending regular follow-up appointments at our dentist in Kew will help determine the length of the treatment.
The advantages of wearing braces goes beyond attaining a perfect smile. Our dentists in Kew will be able to help boost your self-confidence and self-esteem with our braces treatment.
The main objective of any orthodontic provider is to help keep your teeth healthy and in the best possible condition for as long as possible.
