Do you remember the last time you visited your local dentist? Well it is recommended that you should visit your dentist for a regular check-up at least every six months. This is not only to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, but so that you can also benefit from having your teeth cleaned by dental professionals. Regular cleaning by a dental professional means that bacteria and plaque are less likely to form in your teeth and your gums, which can help to prevent dental issues such as gum disease.
In addition to regular visits to your dentist you may be looking at ways to improve your smile. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look and would like to correct any dental problems such as crooked teeth, gaps and issues concerning your bite, you may also want to consider seeing an orthodontist in Hampshire at our practice WInchester Orthodontics.
Why should you visit an orthodontist in Hampshire?
An orthodontist is qualified to provide orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages. At Winchester Orthodontics, we have an elite team of dental professionals led by our specialist orthodontist, Dr Suzette Mulder. Dr Mulder has successfully treated over 5000 orthodontic cases and alongside her team, Winchester Orthodontics are dedicated to providing quality orthodontic care to patients, ensuring that our staff are always kept up to date with professional knowledge regarding dentistry, thereby giving our patients the best treatment, care and information.
Visiting an orthodontist in Hampshire has many advantages. For example, by having regular appointments with an orthodontist, it allows the dental professional to identify potential orthodontic problems in a child early on. It is recommended that children should see an orthodontist from seven years of age to prevent any future orthodontic problems. If orthodontic problems are identified early on, the orthodontist will be able to recommend treatment and this early start can not only speed up treatment time for the child, but can also mean less money is spent on dental treatments (if needed in adulthood) and can also mean future dental treatments are less invasive for the individual.
For adults, visiting an orthodontist in Hampshire means that common orthodontic problems including protruding teeth and crowding can be rectified with suitable orthodontic treatment, These dental problems can be detrimental to your oral health, as spaces in between your teeth can not only increase the chance of gum disease (as mentioned earlier) but can also cause tooth decay. Once an orthodontist has noted these problems, they are able to treat these dental issues achieving better oral and dental health for your teeth.
Another reason why it is advantageous to visit an orthodontist is that they can improve your self-esteem. It is said that a person’s teeth are one of the first things we notice when we meet someone new. If you are unhappy with your teeth and want to find ways to improve your smile, by visiting a specialist orthodontist they will be able to suggest orthodontic treatment which aims to straighten your teeth and improve not only your smile but your confidence too.
