Orthodontics involves the straightening and alignment of teeth. It usually involves wearing a brace or a retainer over a long period of time. Conventional braces are made from wires and springs attached to tiny metal plates or a plastic mould. The brace applies gentle forces to the teeth and encourages them to adopt a different alignment.
In addition to conventional braces our specialist orthodontist also offers alternative methods with 'invisible' orthodontics such as lingual braces and Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-moulded to fit you. The virtually invisible aligners are changed every 2 weeks and gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you'll be proud of. Treatments times vary from case to case but are typically from 6 months to a year.
Convenient – it does not disrupt your lifestyle, you can remove your aligners to eat the food you want and clean your teeth.
Discrete – since the aligners are virtually invisible most people won't notice you're in treatment.
Comfortable – there are no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth.
