Teeth Straightening

Straight teeth from 6 weeks

Not everybody is gifted with naturally straight looking teeth. In fact it is quite common to have crooked teeth. There are many causes and some of them include:

  • Being born with naturally crooked teeth
  • With time our mouth changes and this progression impacts on the spacing of teeth
  • Tooth loss and the subsequent movement of remaining teeth
  • A small jaw causes teeth to be crowded or drift out of space
  • Thumb sucking!

Benefits of straightening teeth:

  • You can have a beautiful smile
  • Can help improve the contour of the lips and face
  • Promotes better function of teeth by balancing forces
  • Reduces habits such grinding and clenching and prevents unnecessary wear on teeth as well as the development of headaches and facial pain
  • It becomes easier to clean, floss and place fillings if necessary
  • Enhances social and career success in adults by enhancing self esteem, self image and self confidence
