At Dr Richard Clinics we use the latest in orthodontic technology to treat gapped, crowded and crooked teeth, as well as over and underbites. With recent dental advancements, there are now far more options available to patients, including Invisalign – a realignment method that is practically invisible.
Why should you see an orthodontist?
Many people are embarrassed by their smile because their teeth are too crowded, uneven or have gaps between them. We also see patients whose jaws are misaligned causing an over or under bite. These are all issues that can be remedied through an orthodontic treatment plan.
Correcting the alignment of your teeth can also help with a number of other dental and general health problems. Badly aligned teeth can affect your speech, eating and dental hygiene, as well as cause discomfort.
What does orthodontic treatment involve?
During an initial consultation, the orthodontist will assess your teeth and discuss the various treatment options that are available. He or she will explain what you should expect from the treatment and how long it is likely to take. You will also have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have.
At Dr Richard Clinics we offer the following orthodontic treatments:
- Invisalign: A clear aligner that is practically invisible. For more detailed information on Invisalign, please see our dedicated page.
- Fixed braces: This includes traditional metal and ceramic braces that attach to the front of the teeth; and lingual braces that are hidden behind.
The exact treatment plan will vary depending on the type of braces you are being fitted with. However, with all options, we begin by taking an impression of your teeth. This is then used to create an aligner or brace that is custom-made to your mouth.
You are likely to notice a difference within a few months but, depending on the severity of the issue, treatment could take up to 2 years.
We will schedule regular check-ups throughout this period to ensure that treatment is progressing and to make any necessary adjustments to your aligner or brace.
We offer a free 30-minute consultation for cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, Invisalign invisible braces and implants.
We offer payment plan options and 0% private dental finance.
