We provide fixed and removable orthodontic treatment ,more patient-focused than ever before.Crowded or misaligned teeth commonly mean that a person has a malocclusion, this simply means a misalignment or incorrect relationship between the teeth and the upper/lower jaw.
The Invisalign aligners are custom – made specifically for your teeth. Your Invisalign straighteners are replaced every two weeks, they work by applying a little pressure, bit by bit, pulling your teeth into the correct position.
Lingual braces, which translate to ‘tongue side’ braces, are another type of ‘invisible’ orthodontic treatment. These braces are very similar to metal braces, but the difference is, these braces are fitted behind the teeth instead of in front meaning they are virtually ‘invisible’.These types of braces do take a little getting used to, but they have been proven to be as effective as metal braces and work by a similar method.
Metal braces are made of high-quality stainless steel or titanium and are made of three main parts. These are the brackets (stuck to the front of teeth) an archwire, which is a thin metal wire going through the middle of the brackets and ligature elastics which attach to each bracket holding the wire into place.
These types of braces are nearly exactly the same as metal braces apart from instead of metal brackets, we use ceramic brackets, which match the colour of teeth. This makes them almost invisible! Using ceramic is more expensive than metal braces because of the material used, but they are as effective as metal braces and other than the metal brackets which are switched for ceramic brackets the three main parts are the same.
