Regardless of your age, modern orthodontics will improve your smile and confidence. This can lead to improved health of your teeth and gums, allowing their maintenance to become easier.
Braces are now more acceptable to adults as they have become less visible and in many cases, the treatment time is shorter.
We’re proud to offer exceptional adult braces for patients across the Birmingham area.
Adult problems such as crowding and protrusive teeth can get worse if left untreated.
In my experience, virtually all adults adapt very quickly especially as the teeth start to improve very early on. Many patients forget they have them on.
You will need to have a consultation to see if you can benefit from braces. After examining your mouth I will be able to give you a better idea of the improvements and costs involved.
Cost of treatment with braces varies depending on the severity of the problem and type of brace. To ensure that treatments are affordable interest-free payment plans are on offer.
With modern orthodontics such as the Damon system, fewer extraction are involved and many children can be treated without extractions. My philosophy is where possible to avoid extractions as this can lead to detrimental changes to the face in later years.
Please book your child for a consultation to see whether treatment can be carried out without extractions.
Your options are to either have invisible braces, cosmetic veneers or a combination of both. During your consultation, I will advise on which option is best for your needs. It is important that you understand all the pros and cons before making an informed decision.
It is important that retainers are worn after treatment with braces.
Often these are clear retainers which are near invisible and are typically worn full-time for up to six months after treatment. Night time wear after this period may also be necessary.
I will give you a clear indication on how long the retention phase will take at the beginning of treatment.
