An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets, applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot faster and more comfortable than it was in the past. Here is an overview of orthodontics:

  1. Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other are good candidates for orthodontic treatment.
  2. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of treatment to determine the course of action.
  3. Brackets are bonded to individual teeth and wires clip onto them that gently guide the teeth into position over time.
  4. Good oral hygiene habits are essential during treatment and regular visits are required for check-ups and adjustments.

Invisible Braces

There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear the traditional unsightly metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.

This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don't feel comfortable wearing unsightly 'train track' braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases. Here is an overview of how they work:

  1. They straighten teeth discreetly, and some can even be removed periodically, making them easier to fit around your hectic lifestyle.
  2. They straighten teeth much more quickly than traditional braces, starting from as little as six months.
  3. They are more comfortable than traditional braces because they use less force and modern wire technology.
