At your consultation, our Specialist Orthodontist will seek to understand your issues, concerns, and goals. We will find out what your personal vision for your final outcome is to ensure we can create a unique plan to meet your expectations.
Here at Elite Orthodontics, we recommend that children should have an orthodontic check-up at around the age of 8.
Our specialist orthodontists can detect any developing problems at this age. It can be helpful to carry out treatment before the eruption of all permanent teeth as this can help to prevent potential problems and reduce the need for future treatment.
If left untreated, crooked teeth could lead to an improper bite, tooth wear, tooth injury and even tooth decay and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also lead to a decrease in one’s self-confidence.
Treatment by our specialist orthodontists to correct the original problem is often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
This does not mean that all children need treatment at this age. However, it does allow your orthodontist to determine whether your child could benefit from early intervention with simple and relatively brief treatment.
Orthodontic treatment is not only limited to children and adolescents, and many of our patients are adults. At Elite Orthodontics we aim to give our adult patients beautiful smiles and healthy, well-functioning teeth.
Due to our esteemed reputation, many of our adult patients are referred by other dentists so that we re-arrange the position of teeth before other dental work is carried out. This often results in much better outcomes and easier, less costly, and more effective treatment by the other dentist.
Other adult patients have had treatment in the past which didn’t work or have since relapsed. Our specialists at Elite Orthodontics are delighted to help these patients restore their smiles and their confidence in their appearance.
