Orthodontics

Improve your smile

At Smiles Unlimited we can advise on Orthodontic treatment for;

  • Early intervention for children
  • Teens
  • Adults
  • Non-extraction solutions

Our Orthodontic treatments can improve your smile by straightening your own teeth and correcting your bite. With high quality materials used and if properly maintained, orthodontic treatment will give you a smile that lasts a lifetime.

When you visit us for your consultation, we will advise you on a treatment that is best suited to your individual needs.

Not only does orthodontic treatment have cosmetic benefits, but a positive impact on your overall health. Crooked teeth can increase your risk of gum disease and studies have shown that gum disease increases your risk of developing heart disease.

Why do I need braces?

Sometimes teeth just don’t grow in evenly – you may have crooked teeth or your upper and lower jaws might not be the same size resulting in either an overbite or an underbite.

When is the right time to get braces?

The ideal age for braces is between 7 and 9 years of age for interceptive dentistry, while the head and mouth are still growing and the teeth are more accessible to straightening. However, orthodontic problems can be treated at any age.

Are there different types of braces?

There are many different types of braces, which include clear or nearly invisible braces. Metal braces are still used, but you might be able to get braces the same colour as your teeth or clear. There are even braces that go behind your teeth where no one can see them.

The wires used in braces today are much smaller and better than they used to be, allowing teeth to straighten faster and easier than ever before.

How long do I need to wear my braces for?

This all depends on the amount your teeth need to be straightened, but most people usually wear braces for about 2 years.
