Invisalign

If you feel traditional braces seem a little daunting, straightening your teeth with the latest practically invisible wire-less orthodontic technology is a great option!

Braces

There are many fantastic braces options today…

  • Clear Braces
    Clear braces are an alternative that move your teeth in the same way as traditional metal brackets. These are far less noticeable than standard metal braces but still produce the same results.
  • Damon Braces
    We offer our patients customised Damon brackets using the Insignia System. These self-ligating braces allow your teeth to move more comfortably and easily than traditional braces.
  • Insignia Braces
    With traditional braces systems the same type of mass-produced braces are used for all patients. This means that significant adjustments need to be made at each visit by the orthodontist to compensate for individual differences.
    This problem is completely eliminated with Insignia.
  • Titanium Orthos Braces
    Titanium Orthos provides you the biologic benefits of Titanium together with the impact resistance, flexibility and corrosion resistance of Titanium.
  • Accelerated-Braces
    Our Synergistically Accelerated Smile Technology (SAS) is the most advanced innovation in accelerated orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontics for Children

According to recommendations by the American Association of Orthodontists, children as young as 7 years of age, should have their mouths checked for overcrowding, overbites and under bites. This will allow us to lay out a longer term plan for your child.

Orthodontics for Teens

Teenagers are of the age group when the permanent teeth erupt and so generally this is the most common time to be wearing braces.

Orthodontics for Adults

More and more adults are starting orthodontic treatment each year, and we have seen a tremendous increase in adult patients in recent years. A nice smile is important, and improving the health of your gums and teeth is equally so.

Jaw Surgery

For patients with severe jaw problems a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery may be required.

Common Adjunctive Treatments

  • Headgear
    Headgear is designed to influence the amount and direction of growth of the upper jaw. When upper jaw growth is modified, then the lower jaw has an opportunity to be in better alignment with the upper and thus improve the overall bite.
  • The Herbst Appliance or Cantilever Bite Jumper (CBJ)
    One of the most common problems orthodontics treats is the discrepancy that occurs when the upper teeth protrude or “stick-out” past the lower. With these patients, we would like to encourage the lower jaw to catch up in growth, and braces like the CBJ or Herbst appliance help this happen.
  • Lingual Arch
    A lingual arch is used to almost magically reduce crowding without the need to extract teeth. It utilizes “Leeway space” or the fact that certain deciduous teeth are larger than permanent teeth to make the correction.
