    Orthodontics is more than just straightening teeth; it’s about creating harmony between facial aesthetics and oral health. Misaligned teeth can lead to challenges in oral hygiene, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, improper bites can cause issues with chewing, speech, and even wear and tear on teeth. Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, led by the distinguished Dr Sanjana Sudarshan, excels in providing tailored orthodontic solutions. They offer a broad spectrum of treatments, including traditional braces, clear aligners like Invisalign, and lingual braces, employing the latest technologies for optimal results.

    Patients ranging from young children to adults can benefit from orthodontic care. For children, early intervention with children’s braces can guide jaw growth and prevent more severe issues later on. Adults seek treatment for both cosmetic improvements and to correct long-standing functional issues. The clinic’s approach is comprehensive, considering the unique facial structure, dental health, and cosmetic desires of each patient, ensuring a customized treatment plan that addresses individual needs and lifestyle considerations.

    Wimpole Street Dental Clinic stands out for its commitment to advanced orthodontic research and technology, alongside a patient-centric approach.

    How long does orthodontic treatment usually take?

    Orthodontic treatment time varies significantly based on the individual’s needs, ranging from six months to three years. The duration depends on the complexity of the correction, the type of braces or aligners used, and the patient’s adherence to care instructions. Regular follow-up appointments are essential for adjusting the treatment plan and ensuring progress.

    Are there age restrictions for orthodontic treatment?

    There are no strict age restrictions for orthodontic treatment. Children, teens, and adults can all benefit from orthodontic care. Early evaluations for children are recommended around age 7 to identify any developmental issues that may benefit from early intervention. However, adults seeking orthodontic treatment are increasing, thanks to advancements in discreet options like clear aligners.

    How often will I need to visit the orthodontist during treatment?

    During orthodontic treatment, regular visits are typically scheduled every 4-6 weeks. These appointments allow the orthodontist to monitor progress, make adjustments to braces or aligners, and address any concerns. The frequency can vary based on the specifics of your treatment plan.

    What’s the difference between an orthodontist and a regular dentist?

    An orthodontist is a dentist who has undergone additional training to specialise in diagnosing, preventing, and treating teeth and jaw alignment problems. While all orthodontists are dentists, not all dentists are qualified orthodontists. Orthodontists focus exclusively on orthodontic treatment, whereas general dentists provide a broad range of dental care.

    Can orthodontic treatments fix jaw misalignment issues?

    Yes, orthodontic treatments can address jaw misalignment issues. Treatments such as braces and certain types of appliances can help realign the jaw, improve bite function, and enhance facial aesthetics. Severe cases may require surgical orthodontics, combining jaw surgery with orthodontic treatment for optimal results.
