If you have a problem with your bite, misalignment or crooked teeth, orthodontics at Bentley Mathieson could be the treatment for you. At our clinic, you’ll find a whole host of options with reliable, beautiful results.

Straighter teeth are healthier teeth. This is because the more gaps you have in your teeth, the more chance you will keep harmful bacteria, food and plaque build-up at bay.

The fixed nature of many of our treatments means that you never have to worry about your braces moving around or causing you discomfort. That means you can benefit from a brand new smile with our effective orthodontic treatments comfortably.

Orthodontics FAQs

How long do the results from orthodontic treatment last?

Your results can last indefinitely with the correct aftercare and commitment to an excellent oral hygiene routine.

Does orthodontic treatment hurt?

No, it might feel strange at first, but you’ll soon get used to your aligner or brace. We’ll give you all the aftercare advice you need to keep discomfort to a minimum too.

How can I get orthodontic treatment?

You should only be considering orthodontic treatments once you’ve spoken to a professional who can offer you a comprehensive treatment plan after a thorough assessment of your smile.

What are the three stages of orthodontic treatment?

Usually, a typical orthodontic treatment plan would start with planning. This is where we design your new smile, and we can inform you of everything you need to know before treatment begins. The next stage is the active stage, when we install the appliance and regularly check on your progress. Lastly, the retention phase is key to maintaining your healthy, brand new straight smile.

How long do I need to wear braces?

This depends entirely on your treatment. Everyone’s smile is different, and we wouldn’t want to pinpoint a specific period without seeing your smile first. A typical period for a standard treatment would probably be around 18 months. But, you should contact our clinic today to book your consultation, and there we’ll be able to assess and diagnose your smile correctly. From there, we can create a treatment plan that works for you to get you the best results from your orthodontic treatment.

Do braces move your jaw?

Having better-aligned teeth might mean that your jaw becomes better aligned during treatment too. If you’re being treated for issues like overbite or underbite, your jaw will likely become better positioned to keep in line with your new straighter teeth.

Do braces give you bad breath?

Not if you take good care of them. It’s a common misconception that braces give you bad breath. This is because the wires and brackets of fixed braces are more susceptible to getting food particles stuck in them, which can cause bad breath. Luckily we can offer you removable aligners and can help you to better look after your fixed braces to avoid this problem and keep your smile healthy and your breath fresh.
