At Southlands Smile Clinic, our orthodontists offer a range of treatments to help straighten teeth. Adult braces are becoming more and more popular, especially if patients have had previous orthodontic treatment but their teeth have moved back into the old positions, they assume that they are too old for braces, even though they’re desperate to straighten a crooked smile. The reality is that recent innovations in orthodontic technology have resulted in braces that are a far cry from the stereotypical ‘metal mouth’.
Our orthodontists can suggest orthodontic appliances that are comfortable to wear, difficult to detect, and thoroughly effective.
Invisible Aligners, a revolutionary way in teeth straightening : We offer the clinically proven Invisalign brace system, which utilises almost invisible aligners. Invisalign is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without the need for obvious braces. It uses 3-D computer aided technology to create a virtual model of the finished treatment, so the patient can easily see what their teeth will look like at the end of treatment, and to manufacture the aligners prescribed specifically to fit the patient’s teeth. The aligners are removable and therefore facilitate ease while eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign is suitable for adults and most teenagers.
Our orthodontists also offer invisible lingual braces (Incognito), which are fitted to the inside of the teeth. This is the treatment of choice for patients who require orthodontic treatment but do not wish to compromise on their appearance.
