Are you considering braces treatment for yourself or a loved one? At Peak Orthodontics in Christchurch, Dr. John Perry and our dedicated team specialise in transforming smiles through expert orthodontic care, including braces, clear aligners, and early preventative treatments. Let’s explore some key benefits of orthodontic treatment:
Achieving a straighter smile with braces can help create facial balance. This alignment can make you feel more comfortable and confident when smiling.
Enhanced Oral Health:
Braces treatment can play a crucial role in improving your long-term oral health. By aligning your teeth, cleaning and maintenance may become easier helping to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
Braces treatment aims to not only provide you with a beautiful smile but also optimise the functionality of your bite. Ideal alignment of the upper and lower teeth can prevent the wear and tear resulting from an improper bite.
Our Orthodontist, Dr Perry, takes a considerate approach to tooth movement and prioritises the right time to start orthodontic treatment. There are instances where treatment at a young age can promote the healthy development of teeth and jaws. However, in most cases, it’s prudent to wait until your child’s adult teeth are predominantly in place. To help you determine the right time to start treatment, we suggest scheduling an assessment from age 7.
Are Braces The Only Option?
It is important to remember braces are just one orthodontic option and Dr Perry will be able to step you through your options depending on your unique situation. All the benefits above are enjoyed by our clear aligner and early intervention patients too!
