Orthodontics is an umbrella term used to describe various different types of dental treatment used to correct teeth that may be misaligned, crooked, protruding or crowded. Orthodontics can also correct issues with the bite such as misaligned arches or underbites. The key benefits of orthodontics are:
Orthodontics can also be used to correct issues with teeth grinding and sleep apnoea.
Ideally orthodontic treatment is started in childhood. If we are able to begin treatment at this important early age, we have a wide variety of options available to correct orthodontic problems in children.
We also understand that for many different reasons a person may not seek, or have access to orthodontics as a child. Fortunately, incredibly discreet and convenient adult teeth straightening options are available for those seeking a straight, beautiful smile in their teens or adulthood and it is never too late to have the straight smile you deserve!
‘Six Month Smiles’ is a clear brace system which effectively straightens your teeth in an average of just six months. It works by focusing on the aesthetic side of straightening, and working on the front social teeth, rather than the complete arches. The treatment is incredibly discreet and a really great choice for patients who want to straighten their front teeth without using traditional braces.
Synergy Clinic is incredibly proud to offer one of the most popular smile-straightening treatments available called Invisalign. Invisalign offers incredibly discreet, nearly completely invisible aligners without the need for the brackets or wires associated with traditional braces. The treatment involves the use of a set of completely personalised aligners which gently and gradually straighten the teeth. You can also remove the aligners when you need to as long as each aligner is worn over 20 hours a day for two weeks. Invisalign is an excellent choice for patients who want to 'secretly' straighten their teeth using one of the most revolutionary straightening products available in modern dentistry today.
Before any orthodontic treatment can begin on your teeth, there must be a good level of dental hygiene first. We will always treat any issues or dental problems such as gum disease or tooth decay before going ahead with any orthodontic treatment. This is to ensure your orthodontic treatment is as effective and comfortable as possible.
