Looking for an established Orthodontist in Leicester? Thurmaston Dental can help; we have trained dentists that are extremely passionate and dedicated to their profession. Orthodontic treatment involves helping to straighten crooked teeth that are out of shape. Having teeth out of shape, overcrowded teeth or out of place can cause problems when biting and can look unattractive. At Thurmaston Dental we help to bring back that smile to your face and improve the function of your bite.
Orthodontic treatment is often associated with teenagers and children. However, treatment is suitable for patients of all ages; anyone and everyone can get their teeth straightened by our team of specialist dentists. Many adults suffer from overcrowded teeth or misaligned teeth because they did not receive treatment in their teen years. We have developed sophisticated technology that allows us to draw 3D digital images of your teeth, giving visual representations of your teeth before, during and after completion of the process.
There are many different reasons for wonky teeth and gaps. The main reason could be that you have inherited the way your adult teeth come through which can’t be prevented but can be fixed. Another reason could be that you acquired a gap in between your two front teeth due to sucking your thumb when you were a child or the prolonged use of a dummy. Wonky teeth and having gaps are common and many people long for having a perfect smile, especially if they didn’t receive care when they were children or teenagers, but as dental care has evolved over the years, it is easy for adults to get straighter teeth more discreetly.
Having your teeth straightened is great for your oral health. When you have overcrowding and wonky teeth, it can become difficult to clean your teeth thoroughly which in turn can cause gum problems and in a worst case scenario tooth loss.
As the leading Orthodontist in Leicestershire, we offer several different teeth straightening treatments which all have different treatment processes, which will be explained during your consultation appointment. Each treatment process starts with our team of trained orthodontics who will carry out a full examination of your teeth which can include checking your bite, taking a couple of measurements of your teeth, having a dental X-ray and possibly making moulds of your teeth. After assessing your situation, we will offer the best advice and recommendations on all of our available treatments to correct the alignment of your teeth. We give you details of how each dental process goes and what it involves including the cost of each treatment.
Here at Thurmaston Dental, we make sure you are making the correct decision, listing all of the pros and cons of each treatment. The decision is ultimately up to you however we are happy to answer any questions that you have about any of our treatments.
Many patients experience a small amount of discomfort during the initial stages, however over time as your teeth get accustomed, you generally don’t notice them.

It is recommended that you visit us regularly so that if anything does need tweaking on your brace, we can do so before any problems arise. We will offer recommendations and assistance in maintaining your teeth and gums while you are receiving Orthodontic treatments from us.
