For lots of people, the day starts badly as they do not like what they see in the mirror. If you dread photographs, worry about how you look, experience pain or find eating or speaking difficult then you may benefit from seeing an orthodontist in Hampshire. Our team at Winchester Orthodontics has many years of experience in providing treatment to correct the position of the teeth and how the jaws and face develop. Children often have work carried out when there is still a mixture of baby and adult teeth, but it is not too late for adults who did not receive treatment earlier in life to have braces. Choosing us as your Hampshire orthodontist is a long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.
Why have treatment?
Straighter teeth mean a more attractive smile, which enhances your self-esteem and improves your confidence. What some people do not know is that seeing an orthodontist in Hampshire can also improve your oral health. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to clean as there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Correctly positioned teeth are also more stable as they are properly supported and less likely to move around in the mouth, get damaged or become loose. You may associate seeing a Hampshire orthodontist with metal braces, but there is now a variety of different techniques available to suit your needs.
Options to suit you
As an established Hampshire orthodontist, we offer support for a range of issues, from resolving crowded or poorly spaced teeth to aligning upper or lower dental arches and correcting the bite of the teeth. A good bite allows the upper and lower sets to meet and work together properly during eating. Happily, advances in dental technology have allowed us to provide fast, comfortable treatment that is much less obtrusive. Clear braces make use of modern materials in the form of aligners such as Invisalign, sometimes wrongly referred to as ‘Invisaline’. For almost completely invisible braces, we can fit brackets behind your teeth, so that they are hidden.
Whichever technique you choose, we look forward to helping you to create the smile you want without the inconvenience, discomfort and unsightliness of traditional methods.
