When Is The Best Time To See An Orthodontist?

Best Time To See An Orthodontist

If you’re at all concerned about the alignment of your teeth or the quality of your bite then you really should visit your orthodontist in Battersea as soon as possible. Often a problem in this area is visibly obvious. For example your front teeth may be jutting out, overcrowded, or misplaced. Or perhaps you have difficulty in eating and speaking. If this is the case, then here at Glow Dental our orthodontist has the specialist knowledge and training to diagnose and treat your problem, and get you smiling once more.

Other causes for concern

The above conditions are all quite common but there may be other symptoms such as clenching or grinding your teeth, mouth breathing, or difficulty in closing your lips together which are all indications that you may be in need of orthodontic treatment.

Similarly, if your jaws make a sound as they move or you’re often biting the inside of your cheek quite unintentionally, then again there may be orthodontic issues.

Orthodontics are for everyone

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and it can be successful at any age. If you frequently cover your mouth with your hand or you’re self conscious about your smile because it doesn’t look as nice as you’d like it to, then an orthodontist can help. There’s a wider availability than ever before of clear braces in Battersea, as well as translucent aligners and lingual braces, so it’s hard for anyone to tell that you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance. So don’t be afraid that your mouth will become full of unsightly wires that may clash with your professional image.

Having said that, it’s not all about looks. Teeth that are correctly aligned are easier to clean and maintain and less likely to be susceptible to abnormal wear. An improved bite means you won’t struggle to eat healthier food options such as crunchy vegetables, fruit and lean meat, and that could lead to a healthier you. In addition your speech will be clearer, giving you improved confidence too. Healthy teeth can last a lifetime so don’t put off orthodontic treatment.

Why visit an orthodontist instead of a dentist?

Straight teeth and a healthy attractive smile can fill you with confidence and even open doors you never dreamed of, so it makes sense to put your trust in professionals with the proper training, knowledge, and experience to ensure that you get the best results possible. Dentists undergo a limited amount of orthodontics training whereas an orthodontist will have spent a further two to three years of university training in order to gain a Masters in Orthodontics.

Here at Battersea Dentist Glow Dental, Dr. Hooman Sanaty and his highly experienced orthodontists make sure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible and that you’re more than pleased with the end results.
