Orthodontics is the area of dentistry which deals with straightening the teeth and jaw alignment, using either a fixed or removable brace (technically referred to as an appliance).
The majority of patients are children, although there has been a considerable increase in the number of adults receiving treatment in recent years due to new advancements in techniques and materials.
There are many types of appliance, ranging in colours and finishes. One of the exciting advancements is the clear appliances; near- invisible custom made aligners, which fit over the teeth and gradually moves them into the correct alignment. Other advances include tooth- coloured and clear fixed appliances, together with sophisticated planning technology that lets you see how your teeth are going to move before you undertake treatment.
To determine your Orthodontic needs, a variety of techniques are used including direct measurements, x- rays, study casts and photographs, to aid treatment planning. Below are some of your options;
Ceramic Braces are the same colour as your teeth, so they easily blend in with your teeth. These braces, like many fixed brace systems are worn on the outside of your teeth.
An advanced removable aligner system that uses a coiled spring and metal bar set up to quickly and effectively straighten your front teeth, with treatment times estimated at between 6-16 weeks. Find Out More Here
Invisalign is a series of removable plastic aligners in order to move your teeth into position. Virtually invisible in your mouth and removable when needed, Invisalign are the discreet teeth straightening solution. Find Out More Here
Lingual braces are fixed braces, but not as you know it. Lingual braces are fixed to the back of your teeth, allowing for teeth straightening that is truly secret.
