Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that specialises in moving and straightening teeth, using braces, aligners or other appliances to move teeth into an ideal position. This makes teeth easier to clean and provides a straighter smile and a more even bite. Orthodontics not only helps your smile look better but also gives you a healthier smile in the long run.
There are a number of teeth straightening treatments, to suit all smiles.
If you have lost some or all of your teeth, dentures are a common solution, as they provide an effective replacement. What dentures a patient needs depends on their individual situation, and the best way to find the ideal denture is to book a consultation with our dentists.
There are several kinds of dentures for different kinds of tooth loss and general oral health.
Invisalign is a state of the art, discreet and popular alternative to traditional braces. Instead of using wires and brackets attached to your teeth, Invisalign uses removable, custom plastic aligners, which are worn in sequence to gradually, conveniently and comfortably straighten your teeth, step by step.
