Braces not only enhance the appearance of your smile and face, but help with maintaining good oral hygiene, prevent jaw pain, and avoid premature wear of teeth. When your teeth are better aligned, your teeth are able to function properly and it’s much easier to clean each tooth! Straightened teeth also reduce your chances of developing problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.

The Orthodontic Place offers traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, as well as a range of other orthodontic treatments. No two sets of teeth are the same, so regardless of how complex or unique your teeth alignment issues may be, our lead orthodontist Dr Sara Dudley and our professional dental team are here to help tailor the best braces treatment plan available.

 


From the moment you step into our clinics, you’ll be assisted by a team of friendly, professional and passionate dental professionals who will take care of your every need and ensure you’re nothing short of happy with your orthodontic treatments. 


 

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before.

Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Metal braces tend to be more cost effective and can be used to treat a range of teeth misalignment and other orthodontic issues. Metal braces are more durable as they can withstand more pressure than other forms of braces or orthodontic treatments. This means you’re less likely to experience breakage of the brackets and avoid extending the treatment time longer than it needs to be.

At The Orthodontic Place, we offer specialised orthodontic treatments in metal kids braces, teen braces, and adult braces. With metal braces, you have the option of adding coloured elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colourful smile.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.

For this reason, clear ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. Clear ceramic braces is a more aesthetic option to provide great results without the traditional look of metal braces. To learn more about clear ceramic braces treatment and whether it’s right for you, we recommend getting in touch with our friendly staff and book a consultation at The Orthodontic Place today.
