It's never too late to look and feel your best! In today's world, problems like crooked teeth, spaces between the teeth or teeth that stick out can decrease your self-confidence. Although most adults seek orthodontics for cosmetic reasons, many also seek treatment because of jaw dysfunction, excessive wearing of teeth and gum or hygiene problems. Our approach is to concentrate on straightening teeth and on achieving harmony for your teeth, jaws and face. By focusing on the bigger picture, we achieve straight teeth, a healthy function of the jaw joints, a more pleasing appearance and long lasting results.
You can choose from three of the latest techniques in orthodontics making it more successful and easier on you!
Tooth colour brackets.
The 'metal mouth' look is ancient history. We use clear ceramic brackets which appeal to those who do not want their braces to be noticeable. With white wires and translucent brackets the natural beauty of your teeth may shine through during treatment.
If the idea of wearing braces is holding you back from the beautiful smile you have always wanted, here is good news for you. Invisalign is a state-of-the-art alternative to braces that is practically undetectable to other people.
This is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without the use of wires.
Invisalign use a series of transparent aligners made of a thin clear plastic which fit onto your teeth, like a very thin mouth guard. They are nearly invisible and can be easily removed for brushing and flossing your teeth. Invisalign allows you to still enjoy your favourite food and smile without holding back.
Invisalign is comfortable to wear, straightening your teeth not with brackets and wires, but with a series of clear, customised appliances called aligners. Invisalign is non-irritating to your mouth and easily removable.
Because there are no metal or wires with Invisalign, you spend far less time in the practice getting adjustments. Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer technology to create your customized aligners.
All of our dentists offer Invisalign orthodontic treatment. On our first consultation with you, we will discuss your primary concerns regarding your smile and what you would like to be corrected. Using the 3-D computer technology, we are able to generate a complete treatment plan for you, depicting the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. He will show you your own virtual treatment plan before you start, so you will see how your straight teeth will look when your Invisalign treatment is finished.
Then we send precise treatment instructions to the Invisalign Company, where instructions are translated into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners. There can be as few as 12 or as many as 48 aligners.
Once we receive your aligners, you wear your first one for about two weeks, taking the easily removed aligner out for eating, brushing and flossing. Over time, as you replace each aligner approximately every two weeks with the next, your teeth will move gradually, until they move into the final alignment that we prescribed.
You will have regular appointments with us approximately once every six weeks, to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. During your treatment, you can usually eat whatever you desire because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. This is yet another advantage over traditional orthodontic (teeth-straightening) methods, where there can be many food restrictions.
With so many benefits to the Invisalign system, why wait any longer to get your beautiful smile.Back to List of Services
