Is there a right time to see the orthodontist in Hampshire?

Are you wondering if your teeth need orthodontic treatment? While some orthodontic problems are very obvious, others are quite subtle and only an orthodontist can determine if you are eligible for treatment.

At Winchester Orthodontics, we will examine your teeth thoroughly and determine whether you require the help of our orthodontist in Hampshire. Some adults think that it’s too late to have their teeth straightened but this not simply true. Modern orthodontics are very discreet, versatile, and effective and are specifically made for image-conscious adults. If you want to have a straighter smile without compromising your looks, you have come to the right place.

Seeing the orthodontist in Hampshire as an adult

Once your mouth and jawbone have finished growing and your adult teeth have been used for quite a few years, your orthodontist in Hampshire can see whether your teeth are misaligned (even if this misalignment isn’t that obvious) because of the areas where wear and tear have occurred in your mouth. Your orthodontist in Hampshire will examine these areas carefully and recommend the best treatment possible.

Some adults falsely believe that orthodontic problems are expensive to fix, especially at this age. However, adult braces are not necessarily more expensive than regular braces. In some cases, they may even be cheaper.

Signs that you are experiencing orthodontic issues as an adult

If you have problems with your teeth or jaw, it is time to trust our orthodontist in Hampshire. Signs that indicate serious orthodontic problems include jaw soreness, uneven wear and tear, tooth grinding (some people grind their teeth because they don’t fit together properly) and migraines. All these symptoms are indicative of orthodontic issues affecting your bite. Visiting your orthodontist can determine whether these issues need corrective treatment with orthodontics or other treatments. Be aware that oral problems such as missing teeth, gum disease and tooth decay can delay orthodontic intervention. This is because your mouth needs to be relatively healthy before we apply clear braces or other orthodontic appliances.
