Smiles are a big part of our identity, how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. Recent surveys have shown that most respondents agreed that people of all ages with healthy, straight teeth are treated more favourably in social situations than those with crooked teeth. Overcrowded teeth can also lead to a variety of other oral health problems.
"We live in a very image-conscious society and impressions are often made within a few seconds.
Straight teeth can make a difference and may increase your chances of certain opportunities."
At GB Dental our dentists are highly skilled in orthodontic treatment.
With the innovative technologies of both the Damon System and Invisalign it is easier than ever to improve your smile in less time than other orthodontic methods, with greater comfort and greater results and benefits that last a lifetime.
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:
When left untreated, many orthodontic problems (even minor ones) may become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing, excessive gum stress on gum tissue, and misalignment of the jaw joints. This can all lead to chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck. Treatment to correct orthodontic issues are often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
So, no matter what age you are it is never too early or too late to invest in orthodontic treatment and ultimately invest in yourself. Start enjoying the lifelong results today.
These are removable appliances, which are generally used in younger children to start improving the jaws prior to having braces fitted. There are many different types of orthodontic plates, your dentist will explain treatment options if this is required.
This is the invisible way of straightening teeth. The advantage of Invisalign is cosmetic, the aligners are difficult to detect, and therefore has become particularly popular among adults. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dentist.
