Orthodontist London - Forest & Ray - Dentists, Orthodontists, Implant Surgeons

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that most people associate with fixed braces. Nonetheless, this field includes a variety of treatments for jaw and tooth alignment issues.

Crooked or crowded teeth, teeth with gaps between them, overbites, underbites, and a misaligned jaw are the most common dental problems that orthodontics can correct.

Orthodontics' primary goal is to achieve occlusion with perfect alignment. The way upper and lower teeth come together when biting is referred to as occlusion. Misalignments can have an impact not only on your appearance but also on your overall oral health, making it more likely that your teeth will be damaged in the future. Because it is difficult to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly, the position of your teeth can influence your susceptibility to tooth decay and the development of gum disease.

If you believe you could benefit from orthodontics, the first step is to consult with your dentist. Your dentist or orthodontist will examine your existing bite, X-rays, and any teeth that have yet to emerge during this initial consultation. The dental expert will use this information to devise a future treatment plan to align your teeth in the desired position.
