Orthodontics is a branch of Dentistry which specialises in the straightening or realignment of the teeth and jaws by using a fixed or removable brace. Treatment with braces not only improves the aesthetics of the teeth but also improves their function (i.e. your bite) and health by making them easier to clean giving you improved oral hygiene and healthy gums.
Teeth re-align by the application of a gentle force on individual teeth over a period of time. The most effective brace is the fixed brace where individual brackets are attached to the tooth and are linked by a wire. During treatment your orthodontist will make subtle changes to the brace gently guiding your teeth into line.
It is a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is not effective on adults, this is not the case and with the new techniques treatment is highly successful. Age is not a barrier, anyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic treatment has advanced significantly in recent years. Bracketing systems have improved to give a range of benefits including discreet, invisible and fast acting braces. For more information on these and other brace systems go to our Treatment Options page.
