Orthodontics for adults

Modern orthodontic treatment is not just for children, in fact, more than 35% of our orthodontic patients are adults. The range of treatments available to us means we can custom-make an orthodontic plan for you that fits your lifestyle and budget. Cosmetic options such as tooth-coloured (ceramic) braces and Invisalign mean that straightening your teeth no longer involves a mouth full of 'train tracks'.

Orthodontic treatment not only improves your appearance and self-esteem, it can also improve the health of your teeth, gums and jaws. Poorly aligned teeth are more difficult to clean, causing a greater risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss. A bad bite can cause abnormal wear of the teeth and TMJ (jaw joint) problems.

Many of our adult patients have orthodontics in conjunction with other treatments such as tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants and amalgam filling replacement. The varied skills of our dental practitioners ensure that patients can have all of their treatment needs filled here at Greenhithe Dentalcare.
