    Fixed Braces

    Often, teeth need to be guided more accurately than they can be using a removable brace. So a fixed brace is used. This has brackets and bands which are temporarily stuck to the teeth allowing teeth to move.

    The ideal age to have orthodontic treatment is around 12 or 13, while you're still growing. The opportunity for improvement in an adult is more limited and surgery is more likely to be needed.



    Invisalign® is a discreet way to straighten your teeth, using a series of clear removable aligners. The aligners are almost completely transparent and made of revolutionary material to straighten teeth comfortably and quickly.
