Orthodontics - A smile is for life! ← Back to Treatments
There are many reasons why someone feels that they need orthodontic treatment to have their teeth straightened. Perhaps as a child unkind remarks created a general lack of self-confidence, or they just want their smile to be perfect for their wedding day.
Modern orthodontic braces can be used in an increasing variety of ways to straighten crooked teeth, correct crowded teeth, close unwanted gaps, or open spaces to enable dental implants to be placed, all in pursuit of the perfect smile. Normally the starting off point is to get your regular dentist to refer you to Mr Wallace. Using moulds of the patient's teeth, detailed notes and usually x rays of the teeth, various options can be discussed and a treatment plan agreed. At this stage we emphasise the importance of good oral hygiene and keeping routine check-up appointments. This will ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy while your orthodontic treatment is being carried out. This is vital as some treatments can last up to 24 months.
Braces aren't just for teenagers.
Although the majority of orthodontic braces are fitted to teenagers, increasingly more and more adults are enjoying the undoubted benefits of orthodontic treatment.

The Consultation Process
We normally carry out our in depth consultations over two visits.
At the first appointment information is gathered, impressions of the teeth, appropriate x rays and photographs are taken. This allows us to work with you to formulate the best possible treatment plan.
At the second appointment we will discuss with you your concerns and our findings from our first appointment. We will then decide with you your best options for treatment.
