“WE TRANSFORM YOUR SMILE YOU TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE”
People of any age can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Teeth that are crooked, crowded, or that stick out affect the way your teeth look and work. Orthodontic treatment not only improves the look of your smile but your health as well.
Straight teeth are easier to clean and less likely to get tooth decay or injured. If you are not happy with the way your teeth look or work, orthodontic treatment may help.

People of any age can benefit from orthodontics. Crooked or crowded teeth affect the way your teeth look and function.
Orthodontic treatments not only improve the look of your smile but your health, too. Straight teeth are easier to manage and less likely to get tooth decay or damage.
If you are unhappy with the appearance or function of your teeth, orthodontic treatments may help.
What does Orthodontics do?
Orthodontics covers the diagnosis, prevention and correction of dental and facial irregularities occurring as a result of:
- A bad bite or malocclusion
- Missing or extra teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- An overbite
- An underbite
- Misaligned jaw position
- A disorder of the jaw joint
Orthodontic Treatment Options for Everyone
There are different types of braces, which are suitable for both adults and children.
- Invisible braces (Invisalign®)
- Cosmetic braces (ceramic or white brackets)
- Conventional braces ( metal brackets)
Invisible Braces (Invisalign®)
The Invisalign® System is a virtually invisible and hygienic approach to straighten your teeth effectively.
Invisalign® treatment uses the unique SMARTForce Technology to create a series of custom-made removable aligners for you.
Just wear these aligners, made of virtually invisible material, over your teeth to move them to the ideal position gradually.
Conventional Braces (Metal Brackets)
These are the metal brackets and archwires that most people think of when they hear the word “braces.”
But, modern brackets are smaller and less obvious than the notorious “metal-mouth” braces.
Plus, new archwires use your body heat to help move teeth more quickly and less painfully than the older ones.
Cosmetic Braces (Ceramic or White Brackets)
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-coloured or clear brackets that blend into teeth.
Some even use tooth-coloured wires to be even less obvious.
Why You May Need Orthodontics
The position of your teeth and jaws affects your bite. Your bite is how your upper and lower teeth come together.
When the upper and lower teeth do not meet together properly, this is called a malocclusion or a bad bite.
Missing, crooked, crowded or protruding teeth can advance to a bad bite. Thumbsucking may also affect your bite.
A bad bite can give you a hard time chewing some foods and may cause teeth to wear down. It can also result in muscle tension and pain.
Teeth that stick out chip or break more easily. Crowded and crooked teeth are harder to maintain and may be more likely to get cavities and gum disease.
Fixing a bad bite improves your smile and your health. Different types of bad bites include an overbite, a crossbite, an overjet and an open bite.
