Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry concerned with correcting teeth positions and improving the appearance of the jaw and facial features. In most cases, orthodontic treatment involves braces on the upper and lower teeth. Individuals with poor jaw alignment may require extra treatment in the form of either orthopaedic appliances or surgery.
At Studfield Dental Group, we provide our patients with free orthodontic consultations so to find the right solution to fit in their individual needs including:
- Conventional Braces
- Damon System Braces
- STb Social 6 (lingual braces)
- Orthopaedic Appliances
Conventional braces consists of wearing bonded/ cemented brackets to your teeth which hold flexible wires in place using clear or colourful bands to attach. These wires exert pressure and gently move your teeth into their correct position.
Regular 4-8 week appointments are required to change colourful bands and wires. Conventional braces take approximately 12- 24 months to complete however this is case specific.
Once completed the braces are removed and a removable retainer is to be worn.
Damon System Braces.
Damon Braces are an orthodontic brace treatment that provides a great alternative to conventional metal braces. Damon System braces are discreet fitting braces that result in greater patient comfort. Damon braces are available in metal and clear brackets that are attached to your teeth in the one visit. Damon braces can be used by both teenagers and adults.
- Smaller brackets for greater comfort
- Clear brackets are less noticeable
- Self-ligating wire = no discoloration to elastic bands
Ask your Dentist about Clear Correct
Clear correct are your invisible alternative to braces. Treatment requires patients to wear a series of clear aligners, which are replaced every 2 weeks. Treatment time is shorter than most other orthodontic treatments. Contact us today to find out more about clear correct prices.
No Braces Approach
The No Brace approach involves wearing functional removable or bonded orthopaedic appliances. These appliances correct jaw mal-alignment and crowded teeth. No Brace is subject to the patient’s age and degree of mal-occlusion and crowding.
