If you’re not happy with your crooked smile then why not come and talk to us about the latest orthodontics.

Comprehensive Epping orthodontics
Here at Lyndarum Family Dentist, our team uses the latest and advanced Epping dentist braces to correct many dental problems and improve the aesthetics of a smile. So while we’re not specialists or orthodontists, our experience means that we have the skills to tackle a wide range of oral health problems, so you won’t need to pay orthodontist prices. These include issues such as:
- Tooth overcrowding
- Overbites and underbites
- Misaligned jaw (an uneven bite)
- Open bites
- Unmatched dental midlines
- Chewing and speech problems
- Misaligned teeth (periodontal issues)
Whether you opt for invisible Invisalign aligners designed for the utmost discreetness or modern ‘bracket and wire style’ Epping braces, we ensure that whatever your tooth alignment problems, we work with you to choose an orthodontic treatment that suits your needs and requirements. Here’s how the treatment for orthodontics in Epping works…
Stage 1 – Initial consultation
The process for anyone seeking out orthodontic treatment here in Epping will always start with a consultation. During this appointment, our experienced Epping dentists will explain the process to you. We’ll also take x-rays where applicable, photographs, and impressions. This helps us to plan the best course of action.
Stage 2 – Second consultation
During this second consultation, our dentists will produce a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan complete with treatment duration and the braces cost. We’ll also discuss other information such as braces care and the need to wear a retainer following treatment.
Stage 3 – The fitting
Fitting aligners is straightforward and our Epping dentist will simply put the first one in place leaving you to remove and replace them as instructed. On the contrary, anyone receiving conventional bracket and wire style braces will first need to have a thorough oral cleaning. Next, our dentist will attach the brackets to your teeth using a non-toxic glue. Finally, the wires are threaded through the brackets and gently tightened to start the process.
Step 4 – Wearing your braces
During your orthodontic process, you will need to return periodically to our Epping dental practice for regular adjustments and/or for a progress inspection. The number of visits involved depends on how long your corrective treatment takes.
Step 5 – Braces removal and retainers
At the end of your treatment, and once your braces have been removed, our Epping dentist will prepare a mould for your new retainer. Usually, this is worn continually for the first 1-2 years after treatment and then just worn at night. This prevents your teeth from drifting back to their original position.
