Types of Appliances

The H4™ is the new revolution in self-ligating brackets. A low-friction, light force orthodontic solution that delivers healthy tooth movement with optimal control. Treadlok® base features the latest in bracket bonding . By utilizing the Treadlok® pattern, H4 brackets adhere more easily, and with a stronger bond, minimizing bond failures.

Clear braces are the most popular choice among the adult orthodontic patient population. Their function is identical to that of traditional mini-silver bracket, but since they are made of ceramic material, they are almost invisible on the teeth. Recent advancements in the materials used to fabricate ceramic braces have made these brackets stain resistant and very comfortable for the adult orthodontic patient.

For adults who want to have the least noticeable braces possible, they can choose lingual braces. Lingual braces fit on the insides (the back) of the teeth instead of the front. They cannot be worn by every patient needing braces, because some teeth are too small or irregularly shaped to fit the braces on the back of the teeth. However, they are ideal for athletes, celebrities, models and anyone who doesn’t want others knowing about their teeth, but still want to improve their teeth and their smile.

Invisalign® is a popular option amongst adult patients. With the Invisalign® system, patients are required to wear a series of clear aligners over a period of time to achieve correction. Not all patients are candidates for Invisalign® , so it is extremely important to be evaluated by an orthodontic specialist to determine whether or not Invisalign® is the best option for you.

Insignia is an integrated system of 3-D digital orthodontics with custom appliances . Insignia allows the combination of treatment strategy with the precision of computer-aided smile design to give every patient an optimal occlusion and smile arc specifically proportioned to their unique facial features. Insignia is a fully interactive software and custom appliance system designed to give every patient a truly customised smile. It’s a precise, start-to-finish process delivering maximum clinical and practice efficiency.

Who can have Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics for Children and Teens

Orthodontic treatment can be beneficial for patients of all ages, although it is most successful during the adolescent growth spurt, between the ages of 8-14 years old. Timing orthodontic treatment is critical in order to ensure your child has a stable, healthy treatment result.

Since every patient is unique, orthodontic specialists are trained to identify the proper time to begin orthodontic treatment. Readiness to begin orthodontic treatment relies more on dental development than chronological age, so, according to the American Association of Orthodontists, it is best to seek the opinion of an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7 to determine the right time to initiate orthodontic treatment.

 

Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids anymore! According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in every five orthodontic patients are over the age of 21. This is no doubt a reflection of heightened public awareness of how straight teeth not only look better, but are also easier to clean, thus preventing more serious gum disease and tooth decay. Recent advancements in orthodontic technology have introduced products such as clear ceramic brackets and Invisalign® to aesthetically satisfy the adult orthodontic patient.
