• Orthodontics

  • Orthodontics is an effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite.

    It is a subspecialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets, applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position. With advances over decades, treatment is a lot faster and more comfortable today than it was in the past.

    We are providers of Fastbraces® orthodontics and also have a specialist Orthodontist visiting our practice to provide conventional Orthodontic treatments.

  • Overview of Orthodontics:

    1. Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other are good candidates for orthodontic treatment.
    2. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of treatment to determine the course of action.
    3. Brackets are bonded to individual teeth and wires clip onto them that gently guide the teeth into position over time.
    4. Good oral hygiene habits are essential during treatment and regular visits are required for check-ups and adjustments.
  • Life Benefits:

    • Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, they are a lot easier to clean and less plaque to build up in over time.
    • Having an attractive smile will have a positive effect on your confidence.
    • Orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
    • It is essential to maintain retention long after your braces has been removed, doing so you can be assured that your teeth won't move after treatment is completed
