Orthodontic treatment "braces" is an effective long term solution to straightening teeth and correcting a bite. Orthodontics is a speciality area of dentistry that focuses on the alignment and straightening of teeth to move them into a particular position.

Wherever possible, we use Invisible/Clear aligners or an Inman appliance and also offer Fastbraces. In selected cases, we still offer traditional forms of orthodontics, including brackets,wires and removable appliances.

The main benefit of orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth.

Fewer gaps occur and fewer spaces between teeth prevent food trapping and plaque buildup which may result in decay or gum disease.

Orthodontics is an effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite. Orthodontics is a speciality area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets that apply force to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The orthodontic process has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot shorter and more comfortable than it was in the past.

Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other should consider having orthodontic treatment. Treatment does require good oral hygiene habits by the patient and regular visits to the practice for check-ups and adjustments. Depending on the extent of the alignment required with your teeth, treatment can take from several months to a year with visible results. Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won't move after treatment is completed.

The benefit of having orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. Orthodontics is a long-term investment for your oral health.
