Braces are like handles for moving teeth. They are painlessly placed on each tooth, and once on, stay for the duration of your treatment.
We prefer to use smaller, more discrete Damon braces in combination with flexible, soft wires to gently move your teeth into their best position.
You see us every 6-8weeks, each visit your orthodontist adjusts your braces getting you one step closer to your final smile.
Take care of your braces, brush your teeth and we take care of the rest!
Our Orthodontists are also dentists, and they hate the idea of taking out good teeth.
But, sometimes there are no alternatives
The most common reason why we might suggest to have teeth removed is because there are far too many teeth, or teeth are too large to fit in a smaller mouth. Widening the jaw to fit these teeth can sometimes lead to very unsightly appearance of a mouth of teeth, like a denture. Sometimes you’ll be unable to close your lips because your teeth are protruding so far forward.
Sometimes we also remove teeth that are decayed or malformed, and then orthodontically close the gaps recreate a healthier mouth.
We treat to preserve and maintain your jawbone support and facial structures. We work around the existing bone support to arrange the teeth in a healthy, stable position.
