Do you want straighter teeth?
Orthodontics aims to improve the appearance, position and function of crooked or abnormally arranged teeth. Traditionally, this could only be done by using metal braces. Nowadays, we have an excellent range of cosmetic systems, which can move teeth quickly and safely without metal braces
Braces have traditionally been the best way to move teeth as they have the ability to perform complex tooth movements. Treatment times can range between 4 to 18 months with most people getting fantastic results in 6 months. The cosmetic Braces we use at the health and cosmetic clinic look great as they come in a white or clear colour.
New materials and technology makes old metal braces a thing of the past. Braces now come in a range of colours including clear brackets (which give them an almost invisible appearance) or white brackets which blend into the teeth almost seamlessly. Patient's love these new cosmetic braces. The two main types of clear braces we use are 6 Month Smiles composite braces and ICE ceramic braces. Your dentist will advise you which one is best for you.
Orthodontic wires are now available in a white colour, which gives them excellent aesthetics compared to the traditional metal wires.
The very complex cases can take up to 2 years, however most of our patients are only concerned with the appearance of their front teeth and treatment times can be significantly reduced. For movement of the front smiling teeth you can expect finalization of treatment within 6 months.
As well as making your teeth look great, orthodontics can help improve the way you bite your teeth together meaning healthier function. Moving teeth can also make it easier for you to clean your teeth meaning healthier gums which can improve the lifespan of your teeth.

Invisalign, smiling every step of the way
Effective. Comfortable. Clear. Removable. Customized.
Invisalign straightens teeth with gentle pressure applied through custom-fit, clear, plastic trays. Each set of trays, one for the upper arch and one for the lower, is worn for two weeks. As you move through your series of aligners, you will notice the gradual shift in the alignment of your teeth. We schedule progress checks about every six weeks to ensure you are on the right path to the projected outcome.
Patients love the Invisalign system because it is very discreet. In most situations, the clear plastic trays are not noticeable. Aligners can also be removed, so food choices do not need to be altered. Brushing and flossing can be easily performed without brackets and wires to move around, which makes it easier to maintain oral health throughout the course of treatment.
Designed to fit your lifestyle the time it takes to complete the treatment varies from person to person, depending on the complexity of each straightening issue. It is important to speak with us to determine how Invisalign best suits your situation and goals, and to agree the best way forward for you.
