Orthodontics

  Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry, that is used to improve the appearance and alignment of teeth.

Whether you have crooked or crowded teeth or a misaligned bite, orthodontics can be used to correct a number of problems or help prevent further issues from arising. In some cases, this can be used to affect the shape of your face including treating a cleft lip and palate.

Orthodontic Treatment

Although its often not a quick and simple fix, orthodontic treatment such as braces is most commonly used to straighten teeth which has numerous health benefits as well as the visual as this reduces the chance of the prominent teeth becoming damaged and makes cleaning teeth and gums easier. The length of time treatment takes, varies from person to person, and relies on the patient carefully following the orthodontist’s instructions in-between visits.

The most common braces are metal brackets that are worn in the mouth to move the teeth, come braces can be removed from the mouth whilst others are fixed to the teeth. If you’d like a more subtle approach, our private orthodontics treatments include clear and white brackets which our patients often prefer to the traditional style metal braces. We also offer an Invisalign treatment which uses a removable clear plastic aligner.

Many believe that it is only beneficial for younger patients who are still growing to get childrens braces. However, there is has been an increase in demand for adult braces too. 

Private orthodontics

We understand that not everyone is able to access the orthodontic treatment they need through the NHS and many that are, are put on long waiting lists before they can start treatment.  Cheslyn Hay Dental are offering private orthodontic treatment in Staffordshire to those that want to get their treatment started as soon as possible. The cost varies from patient to patient however a breakdown of our fees can be found on our fee’s page.

When will a dentist recommend orthodontics?

There are many reasons that a dentist may recommend orthadontic treatment. These may include;

  • Assistance with helping the top nd bottom teeth align. This is known as correcting your bite
  • Prevention of significant damage to prominent teeth
  • Straightening of your teeth following dental overcrowding
What is the current waiting time for orthodontic treatment?

Waiting times for orthodontal treatment on the NHS varies with normal expected times reaching 2 years. However in light of the Coronavirus pandemic the waiting lists are now significantly longer.

Is there an age limit for braces?

Simply put, no. It is a common misconception that braces should be fitted at a young age. Whilst the use of braces in adolecence does provide it’s benefits, there is no age limit when it comes to orthadontics.

What are invisible braces?

Invisible braces are a plastic formed dental device that is used to straighten adjust you teeth whilst remaining discreet. 

Invisalign braces are clear aligners that are custom made and specially designed to fit perfectly around your teeth. This means you can pop out your aligner before you eat, drink, or play sports then, after brushing your teeth, you can simply click your Invisalign aligner back into place and go about your day as usual.
