Orthodontic treatment is a method of straightening or moving teeth by using an Orthodontic appliance (braces or Invisalign).

These appliances place a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, slowly moving the teeth into the proper position, improving the appearance of the teeth and how they function.


The benefits of braces

A key advantage of braces is that they can improve the long-term health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all the teeth and allowing for an easier clean as the teeth are straighter.

Today with the promise of less visible braces, and the fact fewer appointments are needed, more and more adults are now deciding that they want to improve their appearance, their tooth function and their confidence. Today, any age is a great time to wear braces!

Traditional braces

Traditional metal braces have been used for many decades – they enable dentists to precisely control the movement of teeth, and deliver predictable results. Fixed metal braces – which are available with white or coloured elastics – offer a cost-effective solution, and are ideal for children and adults whose orthodontic needs cannot be treated using cosmetic braces.

 We pride ourselves on having the most up to date technology and have the very latest in treatment options, therefore we also have ceramic braces which are made from a translucent ceramic material that will not discolour or erode and are barely visible. They absorb light to blend with a wide range of tooth colours and do not sparkle like some clear or plastic braces. Also because of the unique clip that holds the wire into place, no metal or plastic ties are needed.

At Treetops Dental Surgery, our orthodontic provider will recommend the best solution for your needs.
