Orthodontics

What do orthodontic treatments do?

Orthodontic treatments aim to straighten teeth which may be overcrowded or misaligned which often corrects jaw alignment and assist in promoting wider dental health. Orthodontic treatments usually assist with, or prevent many oral problems usually by spreading out a patient's bite pressure. This often allows individuals to clean their teeth more easily and promotes better oral hygiene.

What should I expect?

Orthodontic treatments usually requires patients to wear braces over a period of time (usually between 1-2 years, depending on the situation of ones teeth). The braces apply a gentle force to the teeth, allowing them to slowly move into their desired position. Patients will be also required to return to our offices, usually on a monthly basis where their braces are tightened and the process is closely monitored.

Who is suited to orthodontic treatments?

Orthodontic treatments can be a solution for straightening teeth for patients of any age. Moreover, recent advancements in technology allow us to offer invisible braces where the brackets are clear and the braces are less noticeable. This advancement may be favourable for adults who are looking into braces or individuals who are more self-conscious.
