Orthodontics – An Introduction


Orthodontics is a speciality branch of dentistry focusing on correcting a patient’s bite, occlusion (how the teeth come together) and straightening the teeth. While some consider orthodontic treatment cosmetic in the sense that it can improve a patient’s appearance, the primary goal is to improve overall oral function.

Treatment generally starts early, once all the patient’s adult teeth have come through, typically between the ages of 7 and 13. However, treatment can start later, and many adults also receive orthodontic work.

Once your dentist has confirmed you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment, they will create a treatment plan and recommend a suitable treatment system for your individual needs and budget restrictions.

There are several types of orthodontic treatment available to patients, including a range of braces or more discreet systems like Invisalign®.

Invisalign® is an incredibly discreet alternative that can achieve fantastic results with none of the social impact associated with traditional metal braces.

Call us on 0161 773 9922 to book a consultation and find out more about our range of orthodontic treatment systems.
