What is orthodontics?

Crowded teeth can be very difficult to keep clean, and may contribute towards tooth decay, gum disease and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, pain in joints, neck, shoulder and back pain.  Also over a period of time, an incorrect bite may lead to abnormal wear or breakdown of tooth surfaces and damage of the bone and soft tissues that support the teeth.

Patients who have covered their teeth during social interaction for many years from crowded or crooked teeth feel liberated after a short course of orthodontic treatment. By removing physical and psychological obstacles such as crowded teeth or spacing your self-esteem can be boosted.

The benefits of straightening teeth include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime. We offer a range of teeth straightening options. Clear, Invisible, Teeth Braces

I am surprised how quickly I started to see results and that there really has been no issues with comfort. The treatment was affordable and my dentist was very reassuring and thorough. 

People are genuinely surprised when I tell them I’m wearing aligners and even more surprised if I show them a before photo! I have now completed my treatment and my confidence has sky rocketed! – JA

I was concerned about how my young boy’s upper front teeth were biting the wrong way. He did not want to wear a fixed brace, so we opted for a removable brace. Three months of use and his problem was corrected. So pleased with the results – one happy mum!

How do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?

Your dentist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, we can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.

How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?

We offer a range of options and there are many different ways to straighten your teeth.

Braces —the most common orthodontics treatment, braces consist of bands, wires and/or brackets. Bands are fixed around the teeth or tooth and used as anchors for the appliance, while brackets are most often bonded to the front of the tooth. Arch wires are passed through the brackets and attached to the bands. Tightening the arch wire puts tension on the teeth, gradually moving them to their proper position. Braces are usually adjusted regularly to bring about the desired results, which may be achieved within a few months to a few years. Today’s braces are smaller, lighter and show far less metal than in the past.

Aligners — vitually invisible aligners, an alternative to traditional braces for adults, serial aligners are being used to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires and brackets. Aligners are virtually invisible and are removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
