Orthodontics

With all of the recent advances in orthodontics, wearing braces has never been easier.  State-of-the-art appliances and treatments are now available to straighten your teeth and move them into a better position. 

We are very fortunate to have our visiting dentist Laira who has over 25 years experience in orthodontics. Laira offers the most modern invisalign, lingual and cosmetic braces and can advise you from her extensive experience in this specialist field.

The best time to have orthodontic treatment is generally during childhood, but adults can have orthodontic treatment too – and more and more are doing so.  It’s not just cosmetic because mis-aligned teeth can cause dental injury, cavity and tooth loss and diminished bone and gum support, as well as TMJ disorders in some cases.

Traditional metal fixed braces can be used to treat almost every orthodontic problem and although we offer these, there are now so many more options available that can be more efficient and effective. 

Clear aligners, unlike metal braces, are almost invisible, removable, comfortable and convenient. 


Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gently move them into position. The aligners are changed every two weeks as your treatment progresses and can be taken out for eating, drinking and cleaning. And, because the aligners are made from clear plastic, they’re virtually invisible.

Aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of. There are no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth, and best of all, most people won’t notice you’re in treatment.

Total treatment time depends on how many aligners are needed, but is typically 7-12 months, although some simpler cases get great results in only 3 months. 

Self-ligating braces is the latest technology. Crafted from a translucent ceramic they naturally blend in with your teeth. Using free-sliding technology it places almost no pressure on your teeth as it gently corrects their alignment. Your treatment can proceed faster with fewer follow up visits than traditional wire braces.
