What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the straightening of teeth to improve the appearance of the smile and the face or to correct disordered bites.

It is a great way to rectify crowded or misaligned teeth. Aside from the cosmetic benefits, straight teeth are also easier to clean, improving gum health and preventing dental disease.

We are accredited to use Invisalign®, Clarity ADVANCED clear braces, Incognito Lingual Appliances, Six Month Smiles and Inman Aligners, and all the other leading technologies to suit your requirements and budget.

Treatment for adults and children

Orthodontic treatment is growing in popularity, and it’s not unusual for individuals who have worn braces in the past to develop mild irregularities later on in life. This is often due to the lack of retainer wear.

Our specialist orthodontist at 92 Dental in Hammersmith uses the latest technologies to deliver bespoke orthodontic care. This allows adults and children to choose from discrete braces to achieve healthy-looking smiles.

Children can be seen for an initial assessment from about nine years of age or earlier on your dentist’s recommendation. There is no age limit to orthodontic treatment, although some problems may benefit from early treatment. Dental literature has reported that more than half of all 12-year-old children would benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Types of orthodontic treatment

Modern orthodontic treatment comes in two different types; Fixed braces and removable braces.

Fixed braces

Lingual braces – are a great option if you want a predictable outcome while keeping treatment as discreet as possible. The brace is fixed to the back of the teeth and the brackets are individually made to minimise interference with your tongue. They can offer advantages over clear plastic aligners like Invisalign, notable being a hidden fixed brace they are more versatile and suitable for complex treatments.

Clear braces – More discreet than conventional braces and fixed to the outside of the teeth they are available with clear brackets and tooth coloured wire that blend in with your teeth, as opposed to standard metal braces and wires.

Removable braces

Clear aligners – some people favour more discreet removable options and systems like Invisalign use a series of clear aligners that can be taken out for eating and cleaning. They are replaced at regular intervals applying pressure to move the teeth into the desired position. They are less visible and a less invasive alternative to fixed braces.
