What is orthodontics in Church Stretton?

Orthodontics refers to the specialist area within dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment for misaligned teeth, jaws and bite patterns.

An orthodontist is someone who has qualified as a dentist and then gone on to complete a further 3 years of training in the study of orthodontics.

At our Church Stretton Dental Practice, we are treating more adult patients, in addition to treating children for orthodontics. 

Patients from Bishop’s Castle, Acton Scott, Shrewsbury, Church Stretton and throughout Shropshire are choosing orthodontic treatment because they want a stunning smile with straight teeth.

Orthodontics usually involves the use of dental braces to straighten teeth and move them into position. Braces for adults and children will:

  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Space out overcrowded teeth
  • Correct protruding teeth
  • Close gaps in teeth
  • Correct bite problems so that your teeth meet evenly at the front and back of your mouth

At Church Stretton Dental Practice, we offer fixed braces and Invisalign braces to treat orthodontic problems.

Private orthodontic treatment for children in Shrewsbury

If your child is deemed to have an orthodontic need, they can qualify for free orthodontic treatment on the NHS. This process can be lengthy as waiting lists often take as much as 18 months before your child begins to receive treatment.

If you choose a private orthodontist, you can start treatment as soon as you and your child are ready. 

Another benefit of having private orthodontic treatment is that there are more options available for the type of dental brace that you child will wear. Treatment on the NHS only offers fixed braces.

Finally, if your child has minor orthodontic issues which means you don’t qualify for free NHS treatment, you can still opt for your child to have private orthodontic treatment.
