Orthodontics at Old Windsor

Orthodontics within dentistry focuses on the straightening of an individual’s teeth by using appliances which are known commonly as braces WIndsor. Due to continuous development within orthodontics, modern orthodontic treatment has been made to be more comfortable and also faster, to ensure you receive the best results from your chosen dental treatment.

Choosing the right braces Windsor

At Old Windsor, we understand that for our patients, orthodontic treatment is a long-term investment, which is why we offer different types of orthodontic treatment to treat both minor and more complex dental cases. One of the most common types of orthodontic treatment is the use of traditional metal braces.

Traditional metal braces focus on aligning crooked or crowded teeth by slowly moving the teeth into position. This is possible because traditional metal braces consist of metal brackets which are fixed onto a patient’s teeth using adhesive and a metal wire which passes through the metal brackets. It is this wire which is tightened throughout your orthodontic treatment and allows your teeth to be straightened.

Traditional metal braces are an ideal choice of orthodontic treatment for children and they are considered to straighten teeth quicker when compared to other teeth straightening treatments. Traditional metal braces can also be used to correct both minor and complex cases.

For adult patients however, the thought of having visible orthodontic treatment may be off putting, which is why at Old Windsor we also offer another orthodontic treatment known as invisible braces.

Invisible braces Windsor

Also known as discreet orthodontics, invisible braces are an alternative solution to having teeth straightening treatment, without the worry of others knowing you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisible braces can either be fixed or removable, but the treatment you decide to undergo will be dependent on your circumstances.

For fixed braces, also known as ceramic braces, the treatment is exactly the same when compared to traditional metal braces, as the brackets and wires work together throughout the treatment to straighten and correct your teeth. However there is another effective orthodontic treatment we offer at Old Windsor known as Invisalign.

Another discreet alternative to fixed braces, Invisalign uses a 3D imaging system in order to create clear, custom-made aligners which you wear throughout your treatment in order to straighten your teeth. As the aligners are clear they are practically invisible, so no one will be able to tell you are undergoing orthodontic treatment and because they are also removable, you are able to eat your meals as normal and also maintain a good oral hygiene routine, as you can still brush your teeth and floss as normal.
