Orthodontics

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry

That is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. The word comes from the Greek words orthos meaning straight or proper, and odons meaning tooth.

New Age Technology Orthodontics

Obviously orthodontics signifies that the orthodontic solution maybe the best option or to save unnecessary loss of tooth structure is done in conjunction with veneering once orthodontic arch development has been effected, the veneers using minimal reduction can then be done.


Damon System

The rapid results achievable with modern orthodontic technology i.e. the Damon System is clearly illustrated in the following two adult cases with the start and finish dates illustrated. The same technology is also available with tooth coloured brackets, and now with tooth coloured arch wire. This is a fixed system which can also use clear brackets and moves not only the teeth orthodontcally, but also aesthetically improves the facial structure i.e. Orthopedics


Invisible Braces

For those who would prefer something more subtle, we have the Simpli5 hidden braces which is a very effective invisalign-type system of treatment. Like Invisalign it uses very clever computerized technology to engineer a series of fine specialized acrylic tooth fitting trays that gently guide the teeth into their proper arch position.


Sandwich-Spring Appliance

We also do the very popular hybrid system, similar to the well known Inman Appliance for rapid alignment of anterior teeth.


Fastbraces® Technology

Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months
