We have all the expertise and equipment to make sure that your teeth are perfectly positioned
Orthodontic treatment involves moving the teeth with braces in order to make them straight and to correct the bite. At The Dental Implant Clinic, our specialist orthodontist treats patients of all ages.
These are the most common type of braces which are fixed to the front of the teeth. These appliances are either made of a ceramic material, which is a similar colour to your teeth, or are made of metal. The tooth coloured brackets are less visible. The metal brackets give the patient the option of using the coloured rubber rings.
Within the practice, we use the Invisalign appliance. These custom-made aligners are made of thin clear plastic material and fit over teeth like a glove. They are nearly invisible when worn and perfect for patients who would rather not let others know that they are undergoing treatment. The clear plastic appliances gradually nudge your teeth into the correct position.
After finishing your treatment, it is essential that the new tooth positions are maintained. To do this, we ask all patient to wear a removable retainer in bed at night. On occasions, we will also recommend a metal wires placed behind the front teeth. This is called a fixed retainer.
No Dental Impressions!
It is now possible to use our 3Shape TRIOS intra-oral scanner to record the position of a patient’s teeth. This removes the need to take impressions / moulds of the teeth.
Orthodontics and Implants
When teeth are lost or missing the adjacent teeth can drift or tilt into the available space. These altered tooth positions may prevent, or complicate, implant treatment. For these patients a course of orthodontic treatment may be recommended in addition to your dental implants in order to help you achieve the perfect smile.
Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)
Snoring can be a social nuisance. A potential method to reduce it is by wearing an oral device at night. These are called mandibular advancement devices. Snoring is one of the signs that you may have sleep apnoea. This is a disorder where patients momentarily stop breathing when sleeping. Following diagnosis, with your doctor, a recognized treatment is to wear a mandibular advancement device when sleeping. This increases the amount of air that you are able to breath in.
