Chichester Orthodontic Clinic – Best Dental Clinic in Chichester can help with a variety of conditions. Before choosing a brace, it is important to work out the features that concern you and plan a treatment suitable for your needs.
Orthodontic treatment has become very commercial and it is easy to forget that moving roots of teeth through the bone, is a medical treatment with benefits as well as risks.
A conversation about treatment aims & a full clinical assessment. Discussion of brace choices, costs & time scales. Includes a written report with estimated costs for you and a clinical report for your dentist.
We need X-rays, clinical photographs & digital scans or models of your teeth to investigate your problem.
Complex problems need discussing so that we can look at all our options before we finalise our plan. This is included in the records fee. Includes a more detailed written report of the agreed plan to you and your dentist.
Healthy teeth can be moved by applying continuous gentle forces. Braces are tools that deliver forces to the teeth. Orthodontists are trained in the science and craft of moving teeth with braces. An experienced orthodontist can choose the right brace to skillfully deliver the best result for you.
The Invisalign system is the most evolved removable brace on the market. It is very discrete and works in a different way to fixed braces.
The process of customisation is computerised and laboratory-based. It involves careful planning between your orthodontist and Invisalign technicians.
Ceramic braces are more discrete versions of the traditional silver braces. The Clarity Advanced technology is both aesthetic and practical. We use this bracket for adult patients and increasingly for older teenagers.
Fixed braces are simple and fully customised at the time of fitting and adjustment. They can be fitted without delay and are suitable for most problems. The treatment is reliable, time-efficient and cost-effective
The orthodontist prescribes the movements, to correct your problem and a series of aligners are manufactured and delivered to our office. Each aligner expresses a small programmed movement and is changed every 1-2 weeks.
