They use a self-ligation technique using lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, while resulting in faster treatment times due to its slide mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement with speed and efficiency

CLEAR ALIGNERS

These are a transparent option of braces as compared to conventional braces. This latest development in the field of orthodontics has taken the world by storm. How would you like the option of undergoing orthodontic treatment without anyone realizing it?

HERE ARE SOME ANSWERS TO SOME OF THOSE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

“I don’t want braces at my age.”
With clear aligners, you don’t wear braces. Instead, your teeth are straightened by wearing a series of virtually invisible plastic aligners. Almost no one can tell you’ve got the aligners on (unless you tell them). They can also be removed if you have an important event or evening planned.

“It’ll be too much trouble.”
Treatment with clear aligners is so easy. You’ll receive a series of clear aligners, which allow you to start a fresh set every two weeks. You wear them all the time, except when you’re eating, brushing, and flossing. time for you. On average, most cases take about 6-15 months depending on each individual.

“It’ll be too expensive.”
Clear Aligners treatment is a little more expensive than the traditional braces. However the number of visits to the orthodontist is reduced, so the treatment is not extended inspite of your busy schedule, thus ideal for people who travel a lot due to work!

ADULT ORTHODONTICS

As an adult, am I too old for braces?
Absolutely not! You are never too old for braces. We provide orthodontic care for many adults at all ages.

Are braces noticeable?
Braces were very noticeable when they went completely around the teeth. Today, most of the braces are bonded to the front of the teeth thereby eliminating the amount of metal on each tooth. It is also possible to have ceramic braces which blend in with your natural tooth color.

Can I still have braces even though I have crowns and missing teeth?
Absolutely! You can still have braces with crowns. Often when teeth are missing, adjacent teeth will drift into the empty space causing a periodontal, esthetic or functional problem. Orthodontic treatment will correct and prevent this from happening and also provide the proper alignment for your dentist to replace the missing teeth if you so choose.

Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
Yes. Even after our best orthodontic treatment, teeth will have a tendency to move slightly, whether you are a child or adult. A retainer is the only way to minimize this movement.

FAST TRACK ORTHODONTICS

What are short term braces?
Simply said, it is using braces (orthodontics) to improve the appearance of one or few upper front teeth or the lower front teeth in a very short time – usually about six months. It is limited orthodontics not comprehensive orthodontics. The objective is to move only the front six to eight teeth only and not change the bite overall. Because the objective is limited the time span to achieve a more esthetic smile is very short.
Traditional orthodontic braces are used but upon request we can use ceramic brackets instead of the metal ones.
Not every one is a candidate for Short Term braces, however. Gum disease or significant misalignment may make this technique not possible
