ORTHODONTICS

OPTIONS FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN

 

Braces are used to improve the position, function and appearance of crooked or misplaced teeth. There are a range of braces available. Your dentist will advise of the most suitable brace for the best results.

Adult braces are quickly becoming the most popular and desired treatment option in dentistry. Willow Tree practice is at the leading edge of this trend.

There is no age restriction to straightening a person’s teeth. Adults are just as keen as teenagers to achieve a straight white smile. Adult braces differ over the traditional ‘train-track’ brace in that they tend to be more discreet. Life gets in the way of lots of things we want to do, and the things we want to do shouldn’t get in the way of life.

Adult braces have been developed to give you maximum flexibility in terms of convenience.
From ‘invisible’ braces, to removable braces that can give you straight teeth in just three months. Adult braces give you the choice.

NHS
If your childs teeth appear to be growing out of line an examination/assessment of their teeth and jaw will identify whether they qualify for NHS treatment.

 

NHS orthodontic treatment is only available for children.

WIRED BRACE

These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word “braces.” However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious “metal-mouth” braces than many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated archwires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past.

REMOVABLE BRACE



Used when minor corrections are required, removable braces are non-fixed braces consisting of a plastic plate with wires which allow the teeth to move gradually by applying gentle pressure.
