Orthodontics Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of dental and facial irregularities occurring as a result of:
  • A bad bite or malocclusion                          Missing or extra teeth
  • Misaligned teeth                                            Crooked Teeth
  • Crowed teeth                                                  An overbite
  • An underbite
  • Misaligned or incorrect jaw position
  • A disorder of the jaw joint
Orthodontic irregularities are corrected using corrective appliances known as braces. Braces are made from wires and springs attached to tiny metal plates or a plastic mould. The brace applies gentle forces to the teeth and encourages them to adopt a different alignment. A bad bite is the misalignment of teeth or jaws or tempromandibular joint (TMJ) causing functional problems such as difficulty in chewing and talking and/or affecting the cosmetic appearance of a person. It may occur genetically or as a result of the following conditions:
  • Trauma Fractured or knocked out teeth in a growing child that on replacement fuses with the bone that surrounds them resulting in an improper line up in the jaw
  • Prolonged thumb sucking or pacifier use can result in pronounced protrusion of upper teeth over the lower teeth.
  • Tongue-thrusting while swallowing can result in pronounced protrusion of upper teeth over the lower teeth.
  • Premature loss of baby teeth
At Clacton Dental & Implant Centre, we would like to introduce their latest scheme for children up to the age of 16. We recognize the need for orthodontic treatment and appreciate that many people are unable to travel any distance to an NHS orthodontist. Although we cannot offer NHS Orthodontic treatment at present we would like to offer a low cost alternative. For simple case orthodontic treatment we are able to offer a very low cost of 1200.
