Why Get Braces?


Crooked teeth can be a detriment not only to your confidence but also to your physical well-being. Apart from aesthetic concerns, misaligned teeth can cause issues like cavities, difficulty swallowing, and even impaired speech.


Jaw pain is often a sign of a misaligned bite, known as malocclusion. Braces can fix this by aligning your jaw and thereby improving your bite. This can prevent problems like worn and cracked teeth and exposed nerves in the mouth.


Correcting crooked teeth greatly simplifies oral hygiene, making it easier to brush and floss effectively. This can lead to better breath, fewer cavities, and a reduced risk of gingivitis.

Types of Braces We Offer

Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most commonly used and have come a long way in terms of comfort and appearance. Built from high-quality stainless steel, they are both durable and effective at aligning your teeth. The brackets are smaller than in the past and use less visible wiring, providing an improved aesthetic and a more comfortable fit.

Clear Braces
We offer clear braces Plymouth that provide an aesthetic alternative for those who prefer a less noticeable orthodontic treatment. Made of translucent ceramic material, these braces blend in with the natural color of your teeth, allowing for discreet straightening with the same efficiency as traditional metal braces.
