More and more adults are having orthodontic treatment. We have numerous parents joining their children in our surgeries, not for moral support, but straight teeth!
Most malocclusions deteriorate with age and patients often find that their crowding is worse during middle age than in their teens. Although adults’ jaws grow, this growth cannot be used to move the jaws as it is very slow and often a multi disciplinary approach needs to be taken to achieve the desired end result.
We successfully treat many adult patients, taking care to ensure we understand their needs and priorities and working with them within the framework and challenges of their life style. See our gallery for more images.
Orthodontic Treatment for Weddings
There are several options and solutions for your big day. If discreet orthodontics is required clear aligners like Invisalign may be a preferred option. These aligners are very popular and can be removed simply for eating and for cleaning.
Invisible braces for adults
An alternative option is Damon Clear, fixed teeth braces for weddings that treat mild to severe crowding while delivering enhanced facial aesthetics.
For complete aesthetics there is Incognito lingual braces, which are fitted behind your teeth, therefore “invisible“ and no one will know you are wearing them.
We invite you to browse through our gallery to see a few of our patient’s smile transformations.
How far in advance of my wedding should I think about teeth braces?
Great question, orthodontics can take many months to take effect. If you think you would like straighter teeth for your wedding then we recommend at least 18 months beforehand come and visit our orthodontic practice to have a discussion. There are certain types of tooth brace which can work quicker in certain cosmetic clinical situations.
