What a Specialist Orthodontist can do for you

Providing the orthodontic care and attention
we would want for our own family and friends.

There are many reasons to see a Specialist orthodontist, to have your crooked teeth straightened, reduce gaps or correct misaligned teeth. Seeing a specialist orthodontist can help you achieve your perfect smile. Using their knowledge and expertise in facial irregularities and teeth movements, a Specialist Orthodontist can help you understand which treatment options are the best for you or your child.

In addition to psychological benefits such as improved self-confidence due to straight teeth, there are a number of health benefits to straighter teeth. The main reason being straight teeth are easier to clean, which reduces the changes of tooth decay and gingivitis (inflamed gums). Specialist orthodontists can also assist in the diagnosis and treatment of speech, breathing and chewing difficulties.

Orthodontic Treatment Options

The best orthodontic treatment option for you will depend on a range of factors. These factors include the extent of treatment required, your budget and what suits your lifestyle.

The main treatment options available:

Metal Braces: Traditional metal braces are still the most common and effective treatment option for kids and teens. They help straighten teeth and correct bad bites using a series of stainless steel brackets and metal wires.
Ceramic Braces: Are perfect for teens or adults who may feel self-conscious about metal braces. Ceramic braces are an excellent alternative and do not have a longer treatment time. However, they do cost a little more than traditional metal braces.
Clear Aligners: Are a sequence of clear plastic aligners which guide teeth to new positions. They are a removable appliance that are virtually invisible. Clear aligners require compliance and discipline by the wearer to achieve the best results.
