Orthodontic treatment for adults

Orthodontic treatment can change your world. Having confidence in your smile affects every aspect of your life both, professionally and personally. With the availability of state of the art orthodontic systems, our team of specialist orthodontists at Angle House Orthodontics can create beautiful smiles in adults without the awkwardness of conventional braces. 

Types of braces

If you’re considering having orthodontic treatment as an adult patient, think further than traditional metal braces. Today, there are so many options when it comes to orthodontic treatment that you don’t need to worry about having a mouth full of metal or walking around with ‘train tracks’ fitted to your teeth. 

At Angle House Orthodontics, we still use fixed metal braces because they continue to be one of the most effective treatment options around, but other treatment methods include:

  • Clear ceramic braces: These use the same technology as fixed metal braces but the brackets are ceramic so blend in with the colour of your teeth.
  • Self-ligating braces: These braces are a true example of orthodontic technology. They are small, comfortable and fast so you can straighten your teeth quickly and discreetly.
  • Lingual braces: The ultimate in discreet treatment, lingual braces are fitted to the inside surface of your teeth so no-one can see them. They’ll be able to see the results though!
  • Invisalign: An alternative to wearing braces is Invisalign aligners. These virtually invisible aligners move teeth into position without a bracket or archwire in sight. 

Common reasons for orthodontic treatment

More and more adult patients are coming to Angle House Orthodontics for orthodontic treatment.  

Here are some of the most common reasons why:

  • To improve the appearance of their teeth and face
  • To help your dentist move teeth prior to crown or bridgework he/she is planning
  • To improve the health of your teeth and gums
  • To improve function i.e. to make it easier to eat. 

Protruding upper front teeth

Protruding upper front teeth – one of the most common dental problems

Crowding

Crowding – a narrow jaw may mean there is not enough room for your teeth, resulting in crowding. 

Spacing

Conversely, some patients have significant gaps between their teeth. 

Deep bite

A deep bite – when your upper teeth cover the lower teeth too much 

Open bite

An open bite – when your front teeth remain apart when your back teeth meet; the tongue is often still visible between the upper and lower front teeth.

A reverse bite – when your upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth 

Asymmetry – particularly when the centre lines of the upper and lower front teeth do not match, perhaps because the teeth have drifted or the position of the jaw has shifted. 

Impacted teeth – in some patients, secondary teeth come through in the wrong position or do not erupt at all. Orthodontic treatment can help bring these teeth into the correct position.

It is never too late to have a beautiful straight smile – we have treated patients from 8 years to 72 years old! Book a free consultation at your nearest Angle House Orthodontics practice and our team of specialist orthodontists can let you know what orthodontic treatment is right for you.
