Orthodontics is the diagnosis, prevention, guidance, and correction of misaligned bites.
Orthodontic treatments create a healthy bite — straighter teeth that properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier to bite, chew, and speak.
Dentist on Warrigal Cheltenham is proud to offer the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services for our patients.
Types of Orthodontic Treatments
Your Cheltenham dentist can carry out work that achieves the following:
- closed gaps between the teeth
- aligned ends of the teeth
- straightened crooked teeth
- improved speech or chewing
- boosted the long-term health of teeth and gums
- long-term wear or trauma of the teeth prevention
- improper bite treatment
To achieve these goals, your orthodontist uses a range of medical, dental devices, including headgear, plates, and braces.
Orthodontic Options in Cheltenham
These are often called traditional or metal braces. They are easy to detect and give the “train-track” look.
Nowadays, these types of braces are smaller, making them less obvious and more comfortable than before.
Invisalign is a modern way to straighten your teeth without wires or metal. Invisalign involves a series of custom-made trays designed specifically for you and the plan your Cheltenham dentist creates to move your teeth.
The trays are made from a smooth and durable plastic that covers your teeth and gradually moves them into place.
