London Dentist Offer Orthodontics For Teeth Straightening

Visit your London Dental Clinic for a consultation about using orthodontics to straighten your teeth and improve your bite. In the past, adolescents and teenagers seemed to be the only patients with orthodontic braces. This trend has reached many adults in recent years. However, it is still good to have braces at a younger age, if at all possible. It is recommended that you should get an orthodontic consult for your children by age 7 years old if at all possible. Independent of age, orthodontic treatment will help to perfect your bite and your teeth’s ability to function properly and to align your teeth and offer a more cosmetic result. Straighter teeth can also help you to perform better oral hygiene.
You London dentist may feel you are a good candidate for braces, and may send you to an orthodontist. The orthodontist will perform a complete exam and work up specifically for your needs, and will then review the proposed treatment with you. Depending upon the extent of your treatment, your treatment may take between 1-3 years to complete. Since children and teens are still developing bone structure, their treatment may go more quickly than in an adult patient. However, this is dependent upon yours or your child’s specific situation.
