Orthodontics | Dentist Preston With modern dentistry, a perfectly straight smile is not only for the blessed. Crooked teeth are no longer a problem.

True Dental Care Preston provides quality orthodontic options for straighter teeth and celebrity-worthy smiles.

What Is Orthodontics?

The branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting teeth misalignment, jawbone defects, and malocclusion is called orthodontics. Orthodontic equipment is worn on/in the mouth for a period of time to repair these defects.

We recommend orthodontic evaluations as early as 7 years old. This way your dentist can create an orthodontic plan and halt possible dental issues before they become serious.

What Are The Common Problems Addressed By Orthodontics

The following are some of the common problems solved by orthodontics:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Bruxism
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Speech problems
  • Wide spaces between teeth
  • TMJ disorders

Orthodontic Options At True Dental Care Preston

The following orthodontic options are available at True Dental Care Preston:

Invisalign (Clear Invisible Braces)

Invisalign is an orthodontic option that uses a series of clear polyurethane, or virtually-invisible, aligners. They are removable and are custom-made for each of our patients.

The Invisalign trays are worn for two weeks each. They stay in the mouth for 20-22 hours a day and should only be removed when eating, brushing, or rigorous sports activities.

When worn, the trays discreetly shift crooked teeth into their ideal position. The aligners are nearly invisible and one cannot easily tell when they are in the mouth.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are cannot be removed once placed (until treatment concludes). They are visible and need closer monitoring from your dentist as compared to Invisalign. The result is the same.

Procedure

As mentioned, we recommend an orthodontic evaluation as early as 7 years old. This evaluation will show if your child needs an orthodontic treatment, and help your dentist create an orthodontic plan for your child.

During the discussion, your dentist will thoroughly explain different orthodontic options to help you choose the best for your child.
