Fixed Braces and Removable Braces
The dentists are all very caring and considerate. They always let me know the costs up front, and involve me in my treatment.
Orthodontic » Fixed Braces and Removable Braces
Braces are no longer just for the children. Adult orthodontics is now a big part of our treatment plans, especially with the advent of the more aesthetic “invisible” braces.
We can arrange for you to see a specialist Orthodontist who will discuss with you the options for correcting crooked, crowded and overlapping teeth using braces.
Patients who suffer from crossbite often have a classic V shaped arch.
A removable appliance is custom made to fit the shape of each patient's mouth.
Slowly, over months, it is expanded using the adjustment in the appliance.
Finally, the arch becomes U shaped.
A bracket is fitted to each tooth.
A wire is then connected to each bracket.
Coloured bands secure the wire to the brackets.
Many different band colours are available.
Slowly, over several months, the wire is shortened pulling the teeth gently into line.
