Orthodontist in Rotherham, YorkshireAll Fountain Health dental practices (Yorkshire Sedation Clinic Rotherham, Millhouses Dental, Cosmetic and Implant Clinic Sheffield and Fountain Dental, Cosmetic and Implant Clinic Doncaster) also offer orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics is a type of dentistry that aims to improve the position of crooked or abnormally arranged teeth. It can improve the function and appearance of the teeth by moving them or controlling their positions during patients’ growth. Orthodontics also includes the treatment of occusal abnormalities of the jaw.

What does orthodontic treatment involve?

Orthodontics uses devices, for example, a brace, to correct the position of the teeth. Your exact treatment will, of course, depend on the problems with your teeth. After an initial consultation, a course of treatment will be suggested. This may involve the patient wearing a brace to gradually reposition the teeth, possible extraction of teeth to reduce overcrowding, or in exceptional circumstances, the orthodontist may refer the patient for a consultation at the hospital if jaw surgery is advised. In some cases, you may have to wear headgear at night as well as a brace, or you may need to have some teeth removed as part of your treatment. If worn correctly, you are likely to achieve good results, usually within 18-24 months. If the problem is more complicated, treatment may take longer.

Who needs orthodontic treatment?

You may need orthodontic treatment if your teeth or jaw do not develop in a normal way. This can cause discomfort and make it hard to maintain good oral hygiene.

In some cases, abnormal development of the teeth and jaw can affect the shape of the face, which could cause psychological and emotional problems, such as lack of self-confidence. Problems with crooked and out of place teeth are quite common in the UK. 

What types of orthodontic treatments do you offer?

At our Yorkshire Sedation Clinic in Rotherham, we offer several different types of orthodontic treatment from the quick acting fixed brace style from Fastbraces®, to the clear braces by Invisalign® which are nearly invisable, removable, and very discreet.  The right brace style for you will depend on a number of factors, but we are happy to arrange a free consultation to recommend the most effective solution for you.
