Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.
Correcting tooth alignment with the use of orthodontics not only straightens your smile, but also ensures you can clean your teeth properly, which is a major factor in preventing gum disease.
The benefits of orthodontics extend far beyond the noticeable cosmetic improvement. A proper occlusion or bite pattern improves chewing ability, decreases the amount of tooth wear and eventually makes the teeth much easier to clean.
Dental Distinction is proud to offer traditional braces as well as Invisalign. We also offer preventative orthodontics for younger patients. Please refer to the information about MyoBrace for this.
Traditional metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic or cosmetic dentistry. This treatment is normally commenced after the adult teeth have all come through, usually in the teen years. However, metal braces are suitable for adults of all ages also.
In some cases there may be medical reasons for using dental braces, such as overcrowded teeth that could lead to hygiene issues later in life, or a functional reason such as an incorrect bite - over bite or under bite. Most often though, braces are used to create the perfect smile.
We also offer orthodontic treatment with ceramic brackets. which are a tooth coloured alternative to metal brackets, however may require additional treatment time. Feel free to enquire about these during your consultation.

With the development of Invisalign® we can offer adults a more aesthetic option to braces. Having a confident smile can change everything. Invisalign® makes the decision easy, because you can get a stunning smile without most people even noticing you're going through treatment.
Whilst braces are less obtrusive and much finer than ever, Invisalign® offers a virtually invisible treatment course. Using these revolutionary clear aligners, the position of your teeth can be altered and improved without affecting your confidence or appearance such as when metal braces are worn.
