Even 10 years ago, the phrase adult braces would have sounded quite odd, after all braces were something you got out of the way as a teenager. Today, it’s a whole new world when it comes to teeth straightening and adult braces are more popular than ever. There are lots of dental practices popping up that now offer teeth straightening even though they don’t have an orthodontist in Hampshire on hand.
So why should you bother seeing our orthodontist in Hampshire at Winchester Orthodontics, when your regular dentist might be able to fit you with adult braces?
An orthodontist spends years undergoing further training after their dental degree, entirely focused on how to resolve misaligned teeth and jaws. Our orthodontist in Hampshire, Dr Suzette Mulder, has not one but 4 postgraduate qualifications: a postgraduate diploma in orthodontics, Masters in Science, and 2 Masters in Orthodontics.
An orthodontist deals with teeth straightening day in, day out. That level of hands-on, practical experience is invaluable. Dr Mulder has successfully completed over 4300 orthodontic cases in the last 10 years.
Combine extensive knowledge with experience and it is no surprise that our Hampshire orthodontist is very skilled at what she does. This means however complex your case is, Dr Mulder will be ready to effectively manage every eventuality.
What can we do for you?
Hopefully you’re now convinced of the merits of seeing an orthodontist in Hampshire for your teeth straightening treatment. So, what can we offer you? In addition to traditional fixed metal braces, we also offer more discreet alternatives where appropriate, including:
Invisalign clear aligners (often misspelt Invisaline), which are removable and completely transparent, making them an especially popular choice among our adult patients who want minimal impact on their lifestyle
Damon clear braces, which are fixed but use clear brackets and don’t need elastics to get the job of straightening your teeth done
Lingual braces, which attach to the backs of your teeth where they are completely hidden from view.
What is right for you?
The best way to find out which braces treatment is right for your particular circumstances is to have a full oral examination, potentially including x-rays, by our Hampshire orthodontist.
