Our Treatments

Braces & Invisalign®

Braces

Braces

Train track braces are still the most commonly used orthodontic appliances used around the world. Originally developed in the USA, these braces are smaller, more comfortable and easy to use than ever before. Traditional ‘fixed’ braces have been used for decades to change millions of lives by aligning teeth and producing life changing results.

Invisalign®

Invisalign®

Invisalign is a clear brace system that uses a series of wafer thin clear positioners to gently guide your teeth into the desired position. It is free from visible wires, there is no need to bond metal onto the teeth. It’s invisible, and removable, allowing you to dine as the mood takes you and smile without embarrassment.

Train Track and Ceramic Brackets

‘TRAIN TRACK’ BRACES
FIXED APPLIANCES

The most common type of treatment is done with fixed appliances, often known as ‘train track’ braces. These are exceptionally reliable and are the best way to align teeth for most patients. A bracket is glued to each tooth which allows the orthodontist to gently pull or push the teeth around. A very fine wire is tied to the brackets to apply this gentle force. In our practice we use Damon self ligating brackets that apply extremely light forces making these treatments very comfortable, a little quicker and require fewer visits than the older generation of brackets. We also use ‘Tip Edge’ brackets that are also low friction and allow treatment of more severe types of bites.

CERAMIC ‘WHITE’ BRACKETS

The big disadvantage of metal ‘train track’ braces is that they can be seen! White (ceramic) brackets can be used for adult clients, but they do have some minor draw backs. These draw backs can be overcome with good patient motivation and a couple of extra visits. These brackets can still be seen but are much more discreet.

The type of brace you need will depend on what type of problem you have. There may be a choice of brace depending on severity of the problem and the goals of treatment.

Invisible Aligners are the latest technologically advanced method of achieving fabulous smiles. These Treatments are Clear, Comfortable and quick!

Invisalign is a clear brace system that uses a series of wafer thin clear positioners to gently guide your teeth into the desired position. It is free from visible wires, there is no need to bond metal onto the teeth. It’s invisible, and removable, allowing you to dine as the mood takes you and smile without embarrassment.

We use a simple 5 stage therapy which can treat minor alignment problems with good cooperation. Patients should be aware that this type of treatment seems to offer the perfect solution with no visible appliance, however there are limitations. Unfortunately the control over the tooth position is much reduced and the results can be disappointing if the expectations are too high or they are not worn properly.

This form of treatment can be useful for patients who are unable to tolerate fixed appliance and are aware of the limitations. These appliances are also good for cases with minor relapse following previous orthodontic treatment.
