An investment for the future of your dental health and appearance.
Orthodontic treatments are not just about helping to create that perfect smile, they are also about straightening your teeth and alleviating any potential problems which can be associated with your teeth or jaw in the long run. If left untreated, crooked teeth or jaw problems can lead to headaches, tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss or speech difficulties. Orthodontic treatments can be a suitable solution that ends up saving you time and money in the long run.
There are three main stages of orthodontic treatments:
1. Planning stage – During your first few visits our specialist Broxbourne Dental Care team will evaluate your medical and dental history. X-rays, photographs and castings or moulds of your mouth, teeth or jaw will be taken. Planning will then commence as the orthodontist custom designs, makes and fits your orthodontic solution.
2. Active stage – During the active stage, you will make regular visits to the Broxbourne Dental Care practice where your solution will be adjusted and fine-tuned to ensure your long-term treatment goals are achieved.
3. Retention stage – Once your treatment is complete, your orthodontic solution will be removed and a retention solution such as a removable retainer will be made to help preserve the treatment in the long term.
