We Specialise in orthodontic treatment. It is the process of straightening of crooked and crowned teeth with the help of braces and wires.
Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.
When it comes to orthodontic treatments, there are lots of different options to choose from. Here are the few most common types of braces and what situations they best work for:
Metal Braces – Often also called “traditional braces,” metal braces have two basic components. These are the metal bracket that is applied to the teeth and the bendable metal wire that is threaded through the brackets in order to apply pressure to the teeth and ultimately move them.
Ceramic Braces – Ceramic braces were once a very popular alternative to metal braces. Because the brackets were made out of a ceramic material that is the same color and has the same texture as teeth, it would be very difficult to see the ceramic brackets on the teeth. We also use wires that match with color of the patient’s teeth, so the entire treatment would be virtually impossible to see. Because they were far less noticeable than metal braces, once the system was developed, it was in high demand.
Lingual Braces – Essentially the exact same as metal braces, except that they are on the inside of the bite, instead of on the outside, lingual braces provide a number of benefits. They can be just as effective as traditionally placed braces, whether of metal or ceramic, but they cannot be seen from outside of the mouth. While they can be spotted when the wearer opens their mouth, they are far less intrusive and likely to be noticed than brackets and wires on the front of the teeth.
Self-Ligating Braces- Similar to traditional metal and ceramic braces, self-ligating braces make use of the bracket and wire system.This type of braces uses brackets with clips or doors that hold on to the wire, instead of the rubber band tie system. These braces are supposed to hold on to less food and be less painful than other types of braces, and they are also supposed to reduce the number of trips to the orthodontist the patient has to make.
Straighten Teeth Without Braces by clear Aligner
No braces orthodontic treatment is one of the easiest ways to straighten teeth without braces. This uses a series of clear plastic aligners to slowly reposition your teeth. Your dentist will take molds of your teeth, and have aligners specially crafted to fit your mouth, and your care plan. From then, you wear the discrete, smooth, comfortable aligners for twenty to twenty two hours per day, taking them out to eat and to brush your teeth. Every two weeks, you switch to the next aligner, which gently moves your teeth into the position your orthodontist has planned. After successful treatment, your dentist may recommend that you wear a retainer at night to help maintain your new, beautiful smile.
