Orthodontic Treatment

Kendal Dental Care offers various orthodontic treatments.
Form follows function, and moving teeth into alignment or orthodontic treatment is not just for teenagers. Many adults, who perhaps missed out on orthodontic treatment when they were younger, are now choosing to have their teeth straightened. Treatment times are similar to children’s and can sometimes even be quicker as adults tend to be more compliant with their treatment.

Our clear aligner choices are popular, such as Invisalign, but often a more traditional approach is required utilising fixed braces using brackets and wires attached to your teeth. The brackets and wires can be metal or tooth coloured.

Brackets and wires are fixed to teeth and we will see you regularly to adjust the braces, usually every 6-8 weeks. At these appointments we check your progress then maybe change the wire, add in some elastics and so on.

At the end of treatment we remove all the brackets and any of the adhesive left on your teeth after the brackets are removed, before providing you with the means to maintain your new smile.

Orthodontic treatment can be really helpful with more complex treatment plans – sometimes teeth are not in a favourable position to restore them, or an adjacent or opposing space. Intruding or up-righting a molar can often be the difference between a well designed, well fitting and aesthetic bridge or having to accept an empty space.
