One of the more traditional dental treatments available that have been used for many years, is orthodontics. Orthodontics refers to fixed and removable appliances and braces that are used to correct and straighten your teeth over a period of time.
Braces have evolved over the years to be more comfortable, functional and discrete. There are many different systems available that can be used. We offer free consultations to assess your teeth and identify what treatment will best suit your needs.
Traditional braces are the more fixed, metal and visible train track braces people often associate with getting your teeth straightened. This has very much changed now with modern day braces. Some of the braces we offer include: Invisalign, lingual braces, 6 month smiles etc.
Invisalign is quite a popular system as it involves clear removable aligners that are worn like gum shields. These aligners are worn in a series, one after the other (advised to be worn for the majority of the day), until the teeth are straightened. The last aligner of the set is also your new removable retainer. Typically treatment times can take longer than fixed braces, but it is truly a discrete way to straighten your teeth.
Lingual braces are an innovative take on fixed braces as they are fixed to the backs of your teeth, which offers you the strength of a fixed brace, but the discretion of an invisible brace.
6 month smiles are a fixed brace that uses clear wires and brackets for a more discrete option than metal braces. They are suitable for short term orthodontic cases that require their smiles to be cosmetically treated.z
