    Just a short note to say how pleased I was with the four crowns you fitted last week, I was delighted with the result and very glad I took your advice. I was surprised how quickly and comfortably the time passed – definitely a good result for us both. Kind regards.

    Ash is the most gentle, polite and professional dentist I have ever visited in over 40 years. The background music and bird song is very relaxing. Well done everyone!

    I have been coming to this dental surgery for the past twenty years. I have been very impressed with the care given by the dentists. Ash has always been very considerate and easy to talk to about problems I have had with my teeth.

Orthodontics

An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets that apply force to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot shorter and more comfortable than it was in the past.

Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other should consider having orthodontic treatment. Treatment does require good oral hygiene habits by the patient and regular visits to the practice for check-ups and adjustments. Depending on the extent of the alignment required with your teeth, treatment can take from several months to a year with reliable results. Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won’t move after treatment is completed.

The main benefit of having orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
