What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialised field of dentistry that involves aligning and straightening teeth through the use of metal braces.
The history of orthodontics stretches back over 2000 years and it has long been a central part of dentistry.
In recent times, braces have developed significantly in their effectiveness while also getting less and less uncomfortable. Braces now come in many forms including regular dental braces, invisible braces, and the newest brace technology, Fastbraces.
Why Do I Need Orthodontics?
Crooked teeth can cause a whole range of problems including an uneven bite, gaps that can lead to decay, and muscle strain. Braces can help to alleviate all of these problems by aligning crooked teeth over time.
There is also an aesthetic benefit to orthodontics as, alongside improving oral health, the practice contributes towards a straight and even set of teeth.
In more extreme cases, orthodontics can be used to treat medical conditions caused by issues with teeth, such as a cleft lip and palate and sleep apnoea.
Your Orthodontic Dentist in Liverpool
Fiveways Dental Practice is a Liverpool orthodontic practitioner and our team of dentists, orthodontists, and dental assistants offer a range of orthodontic procedures.
Incognito Braces are a discreet alternative to regular dental braces, with a wire behind your teeth working on straightening your teeth out of sight. They have proved popular due to their minimal intrusiveness and ease of cleaning compared to standard braces.
Fastbraces are the latest and most advanced brace technology at Fiveways. They’re effective in a significantly shorter amount of time than regular braces, with average treatment length falling between two months and a year. As Fastbraces are on the teeth for a much shorter period than other braces, they also have less chance of causing tooth decay.
