There are lots of treatment options to correct the teeth that are crowded or crooked which includes retainers, aligners and braces (invisible, metal, ceramic or micro braces). Correcting a bad bite and improperly aligned teeth (malocclusion) is important not only for aesthetic reasons but also for proper oral health and function.
Your age, jaw and the size of your teeth all contribute to your smile. Bite problems usually become obvious between the ages 6 and 12, and orthodontic treatments can be started between the ages 8 and 14. But this doesn’t mean that adults aren’t good candidates for braces. Healthy teeth can be adjusted at any age. In fact, many orthodontic cases can be corrected as easily for adults as for children.
We offer the following orthodontic treatments and solutions for children, teens and adults.
INVISALIGN: Is the clear alternative to traditional metal braces. It makes use of virtually invisible and removable teeth aligners tailored for you to straighten your teeth, without the pain and inconvenience of wires and brackets.
INCOGNITO: Lingual braces are an advanced generation of custom made braces that are hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth unlike traditional ‘train tacks’. These lingual braces are perfect for those patients who like to go about their normal routine without feeling self-conscious about their braces.
CERAMIC BRACES: Are virtually unnoticeable, making them perfect for patients of any age who are looking for the confidence and freedom to smile for any occasion.
METAL BRACES: Are the most common orthodontic treatment for children and teens. Metal braces, often referred to as train tracks, have come a long way and are now a lot more visually appealing and comfortable than they were before.
