Braces are no longer just for children and it is never too late to have a beautiful smile that you can be proud of.
Even if you have had braces before, mild irregularities may have developed due to lack of retainer wear. In this case a short course of treatment can return them to perfect alignment again.
As long as your teeth and gums are healthy there are no real age limits to orthodontic treatment. Even if these complicating factors are present, referral can be made back to your dentist or another specialist. With a team approach, a comprehensive plan can be made in order to improve your dental health, function and facial appearance.
We offer cutting edge techniques and the latest in cosmetic braces such as Damon Clear, transparent aligners like Invisalign and the very discrete lingual braces. During your initial consultation we pay particular attention to your expectations and needs. With treatment times starting from as little as 6 months, we tailor treatment plans to your individual requirements because we understand each patient is unique
Not everyone wants the world to know they are having orthodontic treatment so Invisalign is a great way to straighten teeth without visible braces using a series of nearly undetectable, transparent aligners instead of wires and brackets.
Invisalign orthodontic treatment is a removable brace system that uses a series of 25-50 custom-made, clear aligners to move your teeth, week by week, millimetre by millimetre, to the desired position. Unlike other braces they can also be removed for eating, brushing and flossing so you can still eat and drink all your favourite foods.
The word ‘lingual’ originates from a Latin word meaning ‘close to the tongue’. As a technology, lingual appliances have been around for more than 35 years and are a great option for people of any age who want the benefits of aligned teeth without the appearance of braces.
Lingual braces are a fixed brace bonded to the inner surfaces of the teeth. This enables teeth to be moved without having the braces in plain view.
The Damon System
The Damon brace system is a revolutionary approach to orthodontic treatment.
Conventional braces have elastic ‘ties’ which cause friction and pressure. Damon braces feature a sliding mechanism over the bracket that helps to reduce this friction and any potential discomfort as teeth move. The absence of ‘ties’ also makes dental hygiene easier during treatment as they do not collect plaque. Not only can Damon braces result in shorter treatment times but lighter forces on the teeth provide a more comfortable treatment experience.
These are the most common type of orthodontic braces. They are often known as ‘train tracks’. The advantages are that they are able to fine-tune the position of the teeth reliably and with modern sophisticated designs they are smaller and relatively fast acting to reduce treatment time. This will enable you to achieve that great smile in a shorter space of time. You can opt for clear ceramic brackets for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
