Orthodontics

Orthodontics involves the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. This misalignment can lead to tooth decay and gum disease as cleaning may be difficult with some surfaces hard to get to.

The jaw joints can also be put out leading to:

  • extra stress on muscles leading to headaches
  • jaw pain
  • shoulder and neck problems.

Jaw/Teeth Misalignments include:

  • Overbite: upper teeth come down too far over lower teeth, thereby hiding them.
  • Overjet: Upper teeth are either too far forward or back compared to lower teeth.
  • Crossbite: lower teeth are in front of upper teeth
  • Openbite: space between biting surfaces of upper and lower teeth
  • Crowding
  • Spacing between teeth

Our dentist can correct mild to moderate cases with INVISALIGN or lingual braces. A consultation is required to see what form of treatment is appropriate.

Lingual Braces or Social 6: The Truly Invisible alternative for minor or moderate cases

Lingual Braces delivers consistent high-quality results for routine minor to moderate crowding or spacing in as little as 8 to 24 weeks. 

BENEFITS

  • Quality: Treat minor to moderate crowding or spacing of front teeth with maximum control
  • Speed: Thanks to passive self-ligation and light hi-tech wires, friction is dramatically reduced and treatment time accelerated. Most cases finish in less than 24 weeks
  • Comfort: Brackets are 1.5mm in profile and have rounded contours that are comfortable and minimise speech issues
  • Simplicity
  • Value

Treatment times ranged from 5 weeks to 16 weeks.
