With treatments that can improve twisted, crooked or spaced teeth, Park House is the number one option for orthodontic practices. No matter your age or dental problem, there are a number of orthodontic treatments which can improve your smile and ability to eat.
The dentist in Essex has treated both children and adult orthodontic cases, usually improving the appearance of teeth as well as facial features and speech issues.
The most common form of orthodontic treatments, fixed braces, also known as ‘train tracks’ are used usually among children and are suitable for mild to complex corrections and to move multiple teeth efficiently and accurately. Fixed braces are one of the forms of orthodontics in Southend and consist of metal brackets cemented to the surface of the teeth with wire woven in between. Fixed braces are a slow-moving treatment, usually taking between 2-3 years.
For a more discreet look, lingual braces use the same appliance as fixed braces, but they go on the inside of your teeth so are not as visible.
A more modern form of orthodontics are removable braces which are designed to fix mild issues and are therefore entail shorter treatment times, sometimes in as little as 6-12 months.
Removable braces are offered as one of the forms of orthodontics in Essex and consist of a plastic arch that fits in the roof of the mouth. Wires are attached which fixes it to the teeth. As the arch expands, the teeth are gently nudged into their new positions. As they are removable, they can be taken out to eat, drink and brush your teeth, however, to get the best treatment as possible, they must be worn as long as possible.
As with all orthodontic treatments, retainers must be worn afterwards, and the best time to wear them is when you sleep. If retainers are not worn, your teeth will gradually fall back into their old positions.
If you want to begin your journey towards a straighter smile, then get in touch with a member of the team for an appointment and they will happily answer any questions you may have.
