Oral mal positioning, more than cosmetic
We know and understand that having a misaligned jaw or teeth can cause problems far beyond just cosmetic. A misaligned jaw can cause problems with eating, sleeping, talking and even breathing. Your facial appearance can alter, affecting the symmetry. Swelling, popping of the jaw, tired mouth and headaches can all be the result of a misaligned jaw. Misaligned teeth can also cause gastric problems because you cannot chew properly and dental decay due to bacteria in pockets between your teeth can result in lost teeth. Gum disease can occur and bad breath as well as excessive wear of teeth are common. There is also the cosmetic aspect of oral misalignment, your top or bottom teeth may protrude. Overbites, underbites, open bite and crossbite are just some of the many conditions caused by misaligned teeth.
Our care provides more than just oral treatment
Over the years the dental fraternity has become more patient centred. Our aim is to provide you with the level of care and attention that we would expect to receive if we were the patient. Our team and our resident orthodontist Hampshire will spend a lot of your surgery visit ensuring that you are well informed about your condition. We will also encourage you to ask as many questions about your condition and the proposed treatment as you need to feel comfortable to make a decision on your treatment. Your oral cavity is a very important part of your anatomy and we want you to take charge of it, we will guide you but ultimately any treatment must be your decision.
