How many times have you looked in the mirror and wished that you had a better smile? Adults with good oral hygiene and who have healthy gums and teeth can undergo orthodontic treatment to correct crooked and protruding teeth, perhaps close gaps or address other problems such as teeth not fitting together correctly. Since the turn of the century, more and more adults are seeking cosmetic dental work, proving that our smiles are increasingly important for social reasons and to build self-confidence. Our clients range in age from 8 to 80 and beyond. We can often help your own dentist achieve their treatment objectives for you too. Orthodontic treatment can be used to optimise the placement of implants, bridges, crowns or veneers.

Many people get braces as a child or teenager to straighten their permanent teeth. However, over time, the teeth can move back into their original positions, resulting in crooked teeth again. This is especially true if you do not regularly wear a retainer, which is a device that keeps your teeth in alignment after treatment. On the other hand, other people may be undergoing treatment for the first time.
