Orthodontist in Hornchurch, Essex

Teeth straightening with fixed braces

An orthodontist will advise patients of the best teeth straightening option for their needs. The conventional way to straighten teeth is to use fixed braces. This involves fixing a small metal or tooth coloured bracket to each tooth and then attaching a wire to slowly move them into the desired place.

How does orthodontics work?

The wire is attached by very small elastic bands called modules. These come in a range of colours including a clear option. The wires are adjusted regularly until your teeth have moved into the desired straightened position.

When do I need to see an orthodontist?

Both adults and teenagers can see an orthodontist to straighten their teeth. When children become teenagers many will have all their adult teeth come through and their dentist will normally advise whether they are ready to see an orthodontist.

Why see an orthodontist?

An orthodontist will assess a patients’ current smile and check all the teeth before advising the options available. Not all modern teeth straightening methods such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles is suitable for every patient. Some patients have severely crooked teeth or overcrowd teeth which require further orthodontic treatments or even dental treatments before the straightening process begins.
