Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontics is not just for the young but also the young at heart. We now have an increasing number of patients past the age of 25 who are looking for orthodontic treatment. You may have issues with crowded or twisted teeth that you’ve always wanted to get treated. Have you lost teeth through extractions or are you wearing away your enamel through grinding? Book in a consult with one of our orthodontists now.
Modern orthodontics allow us to offer more than just traditional braces for adults. If you have cosmetic demands that preclude the use of stainless steel brackets on your teeth then you may benefit from other types of braces.

Ceramics
Ceramic brackets are a good alternative and are significantly less obvious in day-to-day situations. However, ceramics also require more attention to detail in relation to oral hygiene practices, due to the potential for staining and the brittle nature of the brackets.
Lingual braces
These are worn on the insides of your teeth, which prevent them from being seen in a cosmetic sense. They are very similar to conventional stainless steel brackets, however each bracket is custom made to fit each of your teeth. They can require some time to get used to, as they will be placed in the space where your tongue is usually positioned.
