Teeth that are out of alignment are not just a cosmetic problem, it’s a physiological one too. Correction is about allowing you to increase your confidence and feel good when you smile.
Healthier Gums, Cleaner Teeth
It is more difficult to clean teeth that are out of alignment and they are often prone to unsightly staining and gum disease. However, clinical studies show that when teeth are straight the gums fit tighter around them and they are easier to brush and floss, which leads to better gum health.
We have over 20 years experience in providing orthodontic treatment for children and adults, guiding their teeth into a more attractive and healthier position.
Invisalign™ is used to achieve the perfect smile that transforms your appearance without using noticeable braces.
We fit a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every fortnight for the next set of aligners. Each individual aligner is manufactured for your teeth alone. As you replace each aligner your teeth will move, week by week, until they have straightened into the perfect smile you always wanted.
The Inman Aligner™ is designed to correct adult relapsed and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace free for important occasions.
Treatment can be achieved in as little as 8 to 16 weeks. However the Inman Aligner can only be used for treating front teeth whereas Invisalign and fixed braces can treat full arches (all your teeth).
Six Month Smiles™ could be chosen for adults requiring alignment of only their front teeth. 6 Month SmilesTM braces are clear with wires that are usually tooth-coloured and very small. Treatment times usually fall within 4 to 9 months with minimal discomfort as teeth are repositioned gently. It is suitable for patients who are 15 years and over with crooked or spaced teeth and who do not need a major alteration to their bite.
Fixed Braces: Silver coloured buttons are fixed to the front of the teeth using tooth coloured dental cements, which will be removed at the end of the treatment. A thin wire is threaded through the buttons and will gradually align the teeth. Tiny elastic bands attach the wire to the buttons and by using different colour combinations the brace can become a fashion statement.
A more cosmetic option for fixed braces is to have tooth-coloured buttons and wires so the brace is not as conspicuous.
