When people come to Heaton Mersey Orthodonic Centre in Manchester for orthodontics, one of the questions we usually ask during the initial consultation is, “Why now? Why have you decided that now is the time for orthodontic treatment?”

Many of our clients have spent a significant proportion of their adult life feeling self-conscious about their smile. They have often spent years believing it was too late to straighten their teeth or they may have had braces as a teen but their teeth have since moved; therefore, in their minds, the orthodontic treatment didn’t work.

And yet, when they come to see us, most clients say that they don’t want to waste any more time feeling bad about their smile. They want to know if there is anything they can do to make it better.

Often they’ve heard that it’s possible to have discreet orthodontic treatment without other people having to know (something that might not have been offered in the past). They may even have a big event coming up – weddings are a big catalyst – and they want to feel confident about their smile when they know the camera will be trained on them all day.

For other people, they’ve simply reached a point in life where they finally have some expendable income after years of raising a family or working up the career ladder, and the time has come to do something for themselves.

Sometimes orthodontic treatment is more about function than aesthetics – people get fed up of finding it hard to brush their teeth or having their teeth meeting and wearing in the wrong places.

Ultimately, no two people are the same. Everyone has slightly different motivations for wanting orthodontics here at our Stockport, Manchester orthodontic practice and those motivations are often deeply personal.
