Advances in dentistry have changed the perception of being referred to an orthodontist which was a major event, decades ago. Dental science with the aid of modern technology has produced a range of new techniques and appliances to correct dental misalignment.
Braces Stoke-on-Trent is no longer that metal appliance that seemed to occupy the face of a patient. There are now numerous variations and new creations that are more targeted to correct a specific condition rather than one treatment that suits all. There is no need to suffer from a dental misalignment condition in the twenty-first century.
Causes of misaligned teeth
There are a number of reasons why you can find yourself suffering from a dental misalignment condition. Sometimes you may find that baby teeth are lost too soon and this may result in the new adult teeth shifting to fill the place where the baby teeth were lost.
The new teeth then have little space to grow so they become crooked. The size and shape of your jaw are determined by your genes and the shape of your mouth can result in overcrowding or an overbite or underbite.
Sucking your thumb as a baby or using a pacifier for too long can also result in a dental misalignment problem. All of these conditions can however be corrected by using braces Stoke-on-Trent by this orthodontic team.

The sooner the treatment, the earlier the result
Treating teenage teeth when they are still developing is the best time to produce early results. The different dental appliances that they use now mean that treatment is far more discreet because some of the aligners and braces are virtually invisible.
Braces today are made from a variety of materials some are teeth colored some are clear. Some braces fit on the inside of the teeth, instead of on the front of the teeth.
A different concept
More recently a different type of brace called an aligner has been created which fits over your teeth, similar to a gum shield, instead of being attached to the front of your teeth. These are made from clear dental material so they are almost invisible.
