When Should I See An Orthodontist?
Choosing to get your teeth straightened is rarely an impulsive decision. Patients don’t tend to walk past our orthodontic practice in Reading and pop-in on the off chance they can get their braces fitted. In the case of adult orthodontics, patients have often been mulling over things for some time: should I get braces? am I too old for braces? are braces an investment worth making? do braces hurt? And so on. Once someone is clear about wanting a new beautiful smile then the only question left is; when do I need to see an orthodontist in Reading?
At Park Lane Orthodontics in Berkshire, experience tells us there are a number of factors that lead patients to call, email, or nowadays, contact us to arrange a remote orthodontic consultation. For example, if you’re having problems speaking, chewing and biting because some of your teeth are mis-aligned, displaced, crowded or protruding, then speaking with a specialist orthodontist will inform you of what orthodontic treatment can and can’t do for your specific needs. Every mouth and every person is unique which is why it pays to consult with a trained orthodontist with the experience and skill-set to diagnose and treat all teeth-straightening cases however simple or complex they may be. The right advice early on will save you time and money so it’s worth having a chat with us so you have peace of mind throughout your treatment.
A new smile often leads to a new you; confident, happy and a new zest for life. There are, though, other conditions that drive patients through our doors. Teeth grinding, having to breath through an open mouth and an inability to close your mouth comfortably are all conditions orthodontic treatment can help. The right orthodontic treatment can also correct, tooth abnormalities caused by facial asymmetry or imbalance.
If you’re looking for an orthodontist in Reading to treat your child then at Park Lane Orthodontics we advise you to start looking at getting advice from your dentist around the age of eight. They should be able to check if teeth are growing in the right way. If not, they may recommend referral to see us. The two main reasons why children need to see an orthodontist are to determine whether a child has enough room in his or her mouth to accommodate their permanent teeth and because if we detect any problems early, they tend to be a lot easier to correct.
It’s worth noting with children’s orthodontics having an early orthodontic examination doesn’t mean your child will receive treatment right away. In fact the earliest any child receives brace treatments at Park Lane Orthodontics, is nine years old.
To sum up, anyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment, regardless of his or her age. The first step is the hardest so why not contact us today start your journey to a new smile.
