Orthodontics (Teeth Straightening) Preston

Orthodontic treatment aims to improve the alignment of protruding, crooked or out-of-place teeth. The results improve the function of your teeth and enhance your smile.

Correcting misaligned, uneven or crooked teeth or gaps can improve your oral health, make eating more enjoyable, enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence.


What problems can orthodontics treat?

    • Gaps or spaces – uneven spacing between teeth
    • Crowding – when there are too many teeth in an area of your mouth
    • Increased overjet and reduced overjet – where the upper teeth are too far forward or too far back
    • Crossbite and open bite – where the upper and lower teeth are misaligned when biting


How does orthodontic treatment work?

Fixed or removable orthodontic appliances are used to apply gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. Over the course of the treatment, lasting a few months to a few years, teeth are gradually moved into the desired position. Treatments typically take two forms:

    • Braces— bands, wires and brackets are the most common fixed appliances.
    • Aligners— Clear aligners can be virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating and brushing.


At Bamber Bridge Dental Care, your dentist will advise you on the most appropriate orthodontic treatment for you during your initial consultation. You may need to have an X-ray of your mouth and a clinical examination.
