At Sure Dental we offer conventional orthodontics to straighten your smile and correct the position of your jaws. Our porcelain brackets can make treatment more inconspicuous than you think! This makes this treatment perfect for adults who don’t want metal braces while they’re pursuing their career.
We want the best for our patients which is why we offer porcelain (tooth coloured) braces. This type of orthodontics works the same as traditional metal braces with the added benefit of blending in with the colour of your teeth. This means that you can receive orthodontics while still not feeling self-conscious about metal affecting your smile. This makes it great for adults who want straighter teeth – so if you’ve been putting off getting straighter teeth because you don’t want a mouth full of metal then don’t hesitate to ask us about our tooth coloured braces.
Braces work by applying gradual pressure to the teeth that correct the position of crooked teeth over time. An underbite, overbite and crossbite can also be corrected with the use of braces and orthodontics as often crooked teeth cause this problem in the first place. These problems can also be caused by habits such as mouth breathing and thumb sucking in children. Unfortunately this can disrupt the development of straight teeth and a healthy jaw relationship.
If you notice your child has crooked teeth and you think they might need braces then it is worth visiting a Dentist that can make an assessment and recommend a solution. Some parents neglect the crookedness of their child’s teeth because they think they will grow out of it. It’s important to be proactive when it comes to this problem as crookedness can be a symptom of a number of problems including jaw issues and bad habits like thumb sucking and mouth breathing.
Conventional orthodontics is a great option for growing children as we can use their growth to optimise treatment. Of course, it’s never too late to improve the appearance of your smile with orthodontics, it is simply the nature of children’s teeth that enable a faster treatment time compared to adults. This is because the relationship between children’s teeth and their jaw is more susceptible to pressure compared to adult teeth.
