Conventional fixed braces are most widely used in orthodontics, with a choice of metal or ceramic brackets. These brackets set the angle and alignment of the teeth as well as relate the upper and lower teeth to each other in the optimal functional bite. Metal fixed braces are the most commonly used in orthodontics and are made from stainless steel, with a metal arch wire attached to the brackets by an elastic band. Ceramic tooth coloured braces are the most popular choice amongst our adult patients and are growing in popularity with our teenagers. They are very discreet and blend in perfectly with the natural colour of your teeth to give a great aesthetic look.
Incognito lingual braces are the modern and invisible alternative to conventional braces. Incognito braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tracks’. This allows people to go about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious because their braces are virtually invisible from the outside. Incognito braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adolescents and adults who want to correct their tooth position. The brace is custom made for each patient to maximise comfort and ensure precise results, this is achieved by using the latest computer technology when creating the brace.
The 6 Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile. 6 Month Smiles™ dentists use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!
If you are looking for beautifully straight teeth, but do not want to wear conventional fixed braces, then removable, clear orthodontic braces (Invisalign® aligners) are an option available for you at Roseneath Orthodontic Practice.
