Examining the need for braces goes much further than purely cosmetic reasons. More often than not, there is an underlying issue with the mouth that requires the modification of one’s teeth to allow for better comfort in day-to-day life. Adults and children might need teeth altered for a variety of reasons. These can include:

  • Unfavourable bites that can cause continued trauma to teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Teeth with spaces or gaps
  • Missing teeth
  • Facilitating placement of an implant/bridge.

In the case of a poorly formed jaw or teeth, early planning and relevant intervention are a crucial step in ensuring children obtain the absolute best possible result. This is due to them still growing, which is the best time to implement an orthodontic strategy.

We therefore recommend early visits for your child so that we can recommend the best possible course of action for their situation.

Over the years stigma related to braces for adults has gradually lessened, which we think is fantastic. This has meant that adults no longer feel self-conscious about getting orthodontics, and can reap the rewards that beautifully straight teeth can bring them with. Having a perfect smile is a great way to improve the comfort and health of your mouth – orthodontics are a simple, effective solution for adults to start feeling great about their teeth.
