ORTHODONTICS

Fixed Braces

Traditional Braces are made up of metal bracket's that are attached to each tooth. These brackets are then linked together using a special type of wire that is shaped with a memory. The treatment comprises of a series of adjustments to this wire to straighten the teeth slowly to form the desired outcome.

A dental examination is required prior to treatment where one of our dentists will conduct an initial examination, orthodontic assessment, explain your treatment options, and perform diagnostic work.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are also called "clear” or “tooth coloured" braces and are a popular choice with both teenagers and adults alike for orthodontic treatment. It is made from white or translucent ceramic of high strength, which easily blends with the colour of your teeth for a natural appearance.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a good solution for correcting mild to moderately crowded or incorrectly spaced teeth. They are most effective if your back teeth already fit together properly. Unlike braces, clear aligners are removable for thorough cleaning. It is also very easy to put in and take out and because they are removable, you don't have to avoid any particular foods. Just take them out when you eat. Replace them after you brush your teeth.

Invisalign

Self - Ligating Brackets

Self-ligating brackets are an innovative new technology that can reduce the time you need to wear braces. It uses a high-tech wire system that is more comfortable than traditional braces and usually requires fewer adjustments, so you won't need to visit us as frequently during treatment.
