Teeth straightening

How your teeth look can affect your self confidence, and making the decision to straighten your teeth can be exciting and a little daunting. You may be excited about having a new, straight smile, but concerned about how you will look while your teeth are changing.

At Portman Dental & Implant Clinic we offer discreet teeth straightening solutions, from near-invisible aligners to ceramic/tooth coloured brackets. No-one need know you are wearing braces, so you can keep smiling even through treatment.  

Fast braces

Sheffield Orthodontics Clearbraces

Fast braces use modern techniques to move the teeth in just 3 to 12 months, using clear ceramic brackets, to blend with your natural teeth.

Clear braces

Sheffield Orthodontics Clearaligners

At Portman Dental & Implant Clinic our clear braces are near invisible aligners requiring no tightening, no changing of wires and with no elastic bands to get in the way. 

Retainers

Who can benefit from orthodontic treatment?

At Portman, we have treated thousands of patients, aged from eight to 88 years old. There is never a point in life where we cannot move healthy crooked teeth into their ideal positions.

Why are my teeth not straight?

There are many causes of overcrowding, gaps and crooked teeth. For some people it can be inherited or possibly acquired, either due to a habit (sucking of the thumb, prolonged use of a dummy), or because of the premature loss of milk teeth or adult teeth.

What can be treated?

Orthodontic treatments have evolved enormously over the last 20 years. Now problems such as gaps between the teeth, crowded teeth, overbite (upper teeth covering the majority of the lower ones), open bite (upper and lower teeth almost don’t touch) and cross bites can all be treated.

What will the impact of orthodontic treatment be?

Orthodontic problems can have a profound impact on a person and their social and professional life. Depending on the extent of a problem, you might even be too self-conscious to smile. Effective orthodontic treatment not only improves your appearance, but also goes a long way to improving your self-confidence.

Should teeth be straightened for health reasons?

The correction of poor dental positioning also improves oral hygiene, as crowded or crooked teeth are often hard to clean properly. With such an improvement, the risk of gum disease for example – which can result in loss of teeth in extreme cases – is prevented.

What other benefits does teeth straightening offer?

Orthodontic treatment improves chewing efficiency by re-establishing the correct relationship between lower and upper teeth, removing the difficulty you may have when chewing certain kinds of food, and so providing better nutrition. 

In some cases, orthodontics can also prevent complications in the temporomandibular joint (the joint which joins the jaw to the skull). Chronic pain in the head, face, neck or ears, as well as dizziness, nausea and restricted ability to open and close the mouth can originate here.
