Orthodontic treatment primarily corrects issues such as crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites & under-bites, spaced or gapped teeth and even poor jaw alignment.
Making use of corrective appliances such as braces, aligners, and plates, orthodontic treatment is a specialised field of dentistry that gradually shifts your teeth and jaw into their optimal position.
Some of the primary benefits of orthodontics include aesthetic benefits as well as the correction of many breathing and speaking impediments. Furthermore, orthodontic treatment helps to more evenly distribute the pressure placed on your teeth and jaw when biting down, consequently reducing the risk of developing lasting problems later in life.
At Newcastle Family Dental we recommend an early intervention approach and recommend to our patients to bring their children in for an early assessment to monitor the eruption of their adult teeth and assess the potential need for orthodontic treatment later in life.
We offer a wide range of different orthodontic treatment approaches to cater to adults, children, and teenagers as well as look after your individual requirements.
