Orthodontics is the area of dentistry that deals with straightening of the teeth. Careful diagnoses needs to be made to determine where the crooked bite (malocclusion) is due to facial bone, facial muscle or teeth imbalances, or a combination of all three.
ORTHODONTICS AT THE WHITE BITE
Orthodontic treatment depends on the dental development age of the patient but there are a number of treatment options the dental specialists at The White Bite undertake:
- Dental orthopaedic appliances
- Dental braces
- Invisalign treatment
Regular appointments are required to monitor and adjust the progress of treatment. An orthodontist is a specialist in orthodontics but general dentists are able to treat a wide range of orthodontic problems.
Invisalign is a unique alternative to braces which is practically undetectable. Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign so contact us to see if you qualify.
It involves the use of clear, custom-made aligner trays which must be worn for a certain period of time in accordance with your treatment plan. The purpose of clear aligners is to slowly move your teeth back into their natural alignment and straighten your teeth!
They are shaped like a mouthguard which allows you to take them out of your mouth while you eat, drink or brush your teeth.
