Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment (usually with braces) is most often used to improve the appearance of crooked, prodtruding or crowded teeth, and to correct problems with the bit of the teeth.

Here are the most common dental problems treated through orthodontics:

  • Overbite/deep bite
  • Crossbite (anterior or posterior)
  • Open bite
  • Dental midline deviations
  • Gaps/Diastemas
  • Crowding
  • Aesthetics

Fixed Braces

Most people require the use of a fixed orthodontic appliance if substantial moving and adjustment is required to the teeth. Fixed metal braces are the standard pair of braces you see that are used by many school children and teenagers, they are also known as ‘train tracks’.

The braces are small designed metal or ceramic plates called brackets, which are bonded to each tooth. The brackets will then be attached to a thin metal wire, which is known as an arch wire.

The braces are adjusted periodically at regular intervals to achieve the best results possible, straighten teeth and correct the bite.
