The traditional way of straightening teeth was done with stainless steel brackets. This is a highly cost effective way to achieve a new smile.
Whilst the brackets can be seen, it is possible to customise them at each appointment by having the “O” rings changed to a different colour each time. “O” rings are the tiny elastics that keep the wire onto the brackets. This is a popular option with teenagers.
If we spot a potential problem, you don’t need to wait until all your child’s teeth have appeared. Children can have treatment at any time after the age of 7. In some cases, the earlier potential problems are addressed the better.
Because all permanent teeth have come through by this stage, orthodontic treatment is the most effective in teenage years. We help teenagers embrace their treatment and choose a retainer they’ll be comfortable with in front of their friends.
We have a variety of Orthodontic options at our dental practice on the outskirts of Bristol. We are a short 20 minute drive from the centre of Bristol and welcome orthodontic patients from around the Portishead area. Our Orthodontic dentists are able to provide clear braces so that others will never know you are having orthodontic treatment as well as the rapid tooth moving treatment, the Inman Aligner.
