What Are Braces For?
Braces are used to align and straighten teeth and close gaps without the need for removing any tooth tissue. They can be used for adults and children.
How Long Do Braces Take?
Braces can be completed in around 6-18 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment.
Types Of Braces
There are several types of braces which can be used to achieve different results for different cases. These include Invisalign, Ceramic Brackets, C Fast, and Lingual Braces.
Invisalign usess thin, clear trays called aligners to correct misaligned teeth. We use an optical scanner to scan your teeth and plan the tooth movements digitally. A series of aligners are then made.
Ceramic brackets and clear elastics can be used instead of traditional metal brackets, making the fixed braces much more unnoticeable. The treatment time is much quicker, especially for severe cases.
Lingual braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth. They are suitable for all age groups. We use the latest optical scanner to custom make the lingual brace for each patient to ensue precise results. This is an advanced technique, which is used by highly trained specialist orthodontists.
What Is Early Orthodontic Treatment?
Early orthodontic treatment is for children and may prevent serous problems from developing. It also may make treatment at a later stage shorter and less complicated.
