Orthodontic treatment in Southsea, Portsmouth
Straighten teeth and correct a misaligned bite with orthodontics. We can use a variety of systems such as Invisalign®, tooth-coloured braces and lingual braces.
Braces can be used to successfully to treat a range of issues from crooked, crowded, overly spaced and twisted teeth to more serious malocclusions (upper and lower teeth not biting together properly) and misalignments.
Orthodontic treatment can be provided for both adults and children and has most recently become very popular with young adults who are unhappy with their teeth. We provide metal fixed braces, fixed braces with ceramic brackets and clear braces. A lot of our patients say their friends don’t even notice they’re wearing them!
Treatment times vary depending on each individual; it can be anything from 6 to 12 months, sometimes longer in some cases. A retainer is required after the treatment is completed to keep your teeth in their new position.
This subtle treatment uses tailor-made aligners to gradually move your teeth to a neater position. Its main advantage being that the clear aligners are virtually invisible. They are also comfortable and can be taken out, so you can keep your teeth and gums clean, and there is no restriction on what you can eat.
These braces are fixed to the inside (lingual) surface of the teeth. The process of straightening is similar to traditional braces with brackets and wires, but they are kept hidden away.
Fixed braces have metal brackets that are attached to the front surface of the teeth and thin metal wires held in place with elastics. More discreet fixed braces are also available featuring ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires.
