Orthodontics and Invisible Teeth Straightening

Braces

Teeth straightening can help you and your children in the following ways

  1. Aesthetics
    A straight smile is an indicator of good health.  As a result many people will find a straight smile desirable.
  2. Function
    The first stage of digestion occurs in the mouth.  It is important that all the teeth are working together to help break down the food and making it easier for your stomach to digest.
  3. Prevention
    Teeth develop to cope with normal biting forces.  Teeth that are out of place can get excessive forces that cause fractures and may need costly repair.
  4. Graceful Aging
    As we get older, our teeth wear, causing our mouth to collapse.  Orthodontic work promotes even tooth wear and minimises the appearance of aging.
  5. Social Advantages
    Having a smile that you are proud of can give you the confidence to succeed in areas that you have previously struggled.

Before you start, we can do a 3D digital smile design so you can see how your smile will look!

ClearCorrect Dental Aligners

A healthy and friendly smile makes a big difference when making a first impression.  Having misaligned or crowded teeth can impact on your life in a number of ways.

The Salisbury Dentist has partnered with ClearCorrect clear aligner systems to offer orthodontic treatment to our patients.

ClearCorrect is a series of clear mouthguards that are barely visible and slowly move your teeth to a more ideal position. Straightening your teeth can help in 5 key ways:

  1. Aesthetics
    There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good.  There are many elements to a beautiful and natural smile. Correcting the alignment of your teeth is one element to improve the appearance of a smile.
  2. Function
    If teeth don’t meet where they should, it might be difficult to eat regular foods.  Many patients complain that eating sandwiches and meat is difficult because of the way their teeth meet.
  3. Prevention
    Tipped and misplaced teeth are exposed to extra wear forces.  This leaves them prone to fractures. The gums can also suffer if you do not have space to clean around them.  Getting these problems fixed too late can cost a lot of money.
  4. Graceful Aging
    As we get older, our teeth wear and our faces get shorter.  Ensuring an even bite, distributes wear and minimises this phenomenon.
  5. Social Advantages
    Confidence is important to your success and a healthy smile might be what you need to help boost your self esteem. We wear our smile every day, so orthodontic treatment is an investment that can last a lifetime!
