Straighten your teeth with orthodontics in Berkshire
No smile is entirely flawless, but some people need help to get their teeth straightened in order to become as healthy as possible. At Old Windsor in Berkshire, we offer both traditional as well as innovative teeth straightening solutions for every member of your family.
While the majority of patients choose orthodontics to improve the appearance of their teeth and boost their confidence, there are medical reasons for straightening your teeth as well. Crowded and misaligned teeth can cause problems with biting and chewing food, and hinder your ability to clean your teeth properly. This can lead to tooth decay and loss.
Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and bite carefully and determine which option is best for you. Whether you opt for traditional braces or Invisalign aligners, orthodontics will straighten your teeth, enhance your smile and restore your confidence in your appearance.
Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into their right position. Invisalign aligners are made for each patient individually with the aid of 3D technology that lets you go through every step of the treatment from the beginning to the end. Your dentist will provide you with a series of aligners to change them every two weeks until your teeth reach the desired position. Although the aligners can be removed to eat and clean your teeth, you have to commit wearing them at least 22 hours per day for optimal results.
Jaw aligning braces (Twin Block)
A Twin Block is a system of removable braces that can help align your jaw in just four months. These powerful braces work by taking advantage of the forces emitted from the chewing muscles and should be worn virtually all day for effective treatment. However, if your jaw gets tired, you can remove them for a bit and rest your mouth.
Old-school, trusted metal braces are ideal for treating virtually any type of orthodontic issues. Modern braces have come a long way and they are now more lightweight and discreet than ever. Metal braces work by using a system of brackets and wires to gently move the teeth, helping to overcome common problems such as overcrowded, misaligned and gapped teeth.
