An attractive straight smile is not the only benefit of orthodontics. Crooked teeth, unfortunately in time become more crooked and they inevitably become more difficult to clean effectively resulting in tooth decay, gum disease and other problems.
Trained in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems with tooth and jaw alignment, we treat both adults and children using highly successful orthodontic methods.
Early intervention is often the key to successful long-term results.
We offer a range of orthodontic treatment options. Treatment may involve the use of corrective appliances, such as fixed braces (metal or clear options are available) or removable plates, as well as clear, removable aligners.

This depends solely on what needs to be corrected to achieve the ideal outcome decided on the patient and the dentist. If minor crowding in the front section is all that is needed to straighten this will be much shorter process than arch expansion, jaw remodelling, severe crowding etc.
Professional cleans become even more important when in orthodontic treatment. Obstacles on the teeth such as Invisalign attachments or brackets make it harder to clean effectively and need a professional to ensure any early disease is diagnosed and rectified.

Keeping optimum oral health with braces on is vital to the best outcome. Your risk increases for decay if your brushing is not performed as recommended by your dental professional.
This will vary between individual cases, but usually between every 6 to 8 weeks.
Yes. Retention is the most important part of keeping your teeth in alignment after braces are removed. Teeth are most at risk of moving in the first 6 months after braces, therefore we provide you with removable retainers and careful instructions to ensure your teeth do not move. Wearing these retainers will be reviewed after 6 months.
We recommend 6 months of full time wearing of the retainers, after which this part of treatment will be reviewed.
