What is specialist orthodontist treatment?

Orthodontic treatment refers to the process of giving patients straighter teeth or moving teeth around to improve their appearance and the overall oral health of the patient. Our orthodontists and the orthodontic nursing team have years of specialist orthodontic training and dental care in both lingual braces and metal braces

The benefits of orthodontic treatment

There are many benefits of orthodontic treatment in terms of aesthetics, overall oral health and preventing painful dentist work from being necessary at a later date. These include the following:

  • Straightening teeth through the removal of dental crowding that could be causing decay
  • Alignment of the upper and lower dental arches for healthier teeth
  • Correction of overbite or underbite so that your teeth are properly aligned
  • Reducing the likelihood of damage to prominent front teeth by straightening the teeth line and giving you a beautiful smile
  • Making it easier to prepare for advanced dental treatment, such as crowns, bridges or dental implants

At what age should I have orthodontic treatment?

As with most dental work, the best time to take advantage of orthodontics services is during childhood as part of overall paediatric dentistry and as an introduction to good oral hygiene habits, but people of any age can significantly benefit from adult orthodontic treatment too.

More information about orthodontic treatments

The length of time needed to complete orthodontic treatments and fully straighten teeth depends on how much work there is to do and how far your teeth need to be moved. The cost of the treatment is also dependent on the complexity of the work and the type of braces needed for you. Contact us today to book a consultation and discuss the best treatment plans.

Types of orthodontic treatment

There are two main types of orthodontic treatment available – fixed and removable braces.


Fixed braces can be metal or clear and sit on your front teeth, attached with brackets or wires. They offer predictable results and include lingual or ceramic braces that do the same job as traditional metal braces but are less visible.


Removable, near-invisible or clear braces are aligners (moulds) that attach to your teeth that will also straighten your teeth, though usually take slightly longer than traditional metal braces. A significant advantage of removable braces is that since they’re clear, they’re nearly invisible, meaning you can straighten your teeth discreetly without others being aware. The most commonly known example of clear aligners is Invisalign, which uses a series of virtually invisible, custom-made aligners that gradually straighten your teeth without the need for metal wires or brackets.
