What is orthodontics?

Orthodontist Navan is the field of dentistry which is involved in using dental braces for the improvement of the aesthetics of your teeth and enhancing your oral health in general by straightening misaligned teeth and sometimes jaws. This means dealing with crooked and protruding teeth, making space for overcrowding in the teeth, adjusting the alignment of teeth to deal with bite disorders, as well as improving the setting of wonky or gapped teeth. These are all issues which can affect the way you feel about your smile and can have a negative impact on your self-confidence, but also be detrimental to your oral health at the same time. When teeth are not aligned properly, it can be difficult for your toothbrush or your floss to be able to to access each tooth effectively. Which means that plaque and tartar may remain on the tooth and continue to build up which eventually results in multiple dental issues, beginning with cavities and tooth decay, continuing on to become gingivitis and periodontal disease and can even result in tooth loss when left untreated. 

Orthodontics as an adult

Visiting your dentist on a regular basis from a young age is important to prevent more serious and complicated dental issues in the future. In children and teenagers the dentist will suggest orthodontics when necessary to deal with such issues early on in life to prevent any complications in the future. If you did not receive orthodontic treatment when you were younger then do not despair, orthodontist Navan in adults is becoming increasingly popular and there are many different types of braces available, so speak to us at Navan Dental to help you smile more happily and confidently and help improve your oral health very soon.

Clean and healthy teeth are necessary for successful orthodontic treatment, and following a thorough consultation with your dentist to find out about what issues need to be addressed and which treatment option may be more suitable for you, the dentist will carry out a full examination and a professional clean to make sure your teeth have no underlying dental issues and are ready for the procedure.

Six Month Smiles

Here at Navan Dental we offer different types of orthodontic treatment. Six Month Smiles have proven to be an attractive choice of invisible orthodontist Navan which uses clear braces and invisible aligners. These are designed as an alternative to conventional metal braces which are usually seen amongst teenagers, as although they still use wires and brackets these are matched to the colour of your natural teeth making them almost invisible and therefore a much more appealing choice of braces for those who may be uncomfortable or embarrassed by the more conventional types. Six Month Smiles are used to help straighten misaligned teeth, overcrowding of the teeth, crooked and protruding teeth, and deal with bite issues, and in comparison to conventional braces as the name suggests, Six Month Smiles aim to successfully straighten your teeth in 6 months.  Speak to us at Navan Dental without delay and start straightening your teeth today.
