Invisalign Clear Braces

Cosmetic Fixed Appliances

Radiance™ cosmetic brackets are completely clear and offer the ultimate in cosmetic appliances while having all the advantages of a fixed appliance.

Every bracket is made from a single sapphire crystal which is highly resistant to staining and this ensures they look fantastic from the start to the end of treatment.

Iconix™ Fixed Appliances

These champagne coloured brackets are a new addition to our range and offer an excellent blend of cosmetics and performance.

We recommend Iconix™ brackets for patients who need the performance of a metal bracket in a more discrete and cosmetic package.

Metal Fixed Appliances

Often called ‘train tracks’ traditional metal fixed appliances are the most commonly used appliances for straightening teeth.

They are suitable for all patients and are very popular with children and younger adults.

Invisalign™ Aligners

Invisalign™ uses a series of near invisible, custom-made aligners that straighten the teeth without wires or brackets.

These clear aligners are completely removable, so they can be taken out for eating, tooth brushing and special occasions.

Invisalign™ is an excellent choice for patients seeking cutting edge technology in a removable cosmetic appliance.

Removable Appliances

These braces can be removed from the mouth and are used for simple tooth movements.

They are often used for early interceptive corrections or to aid fixed appliance treatments.

Functional Appliances

These are a two part removable appliance which are used to correct top teeth that protrude too far ahead of the lower teeth.

These appliances only work in growing patients and tend to be used for the more severe cases.

Functional appliance therapy can be an extremely effective treatment and when used at the correct time can prevent the need for Jaw surgery later in life.

Removable Retainers

Retainers are used to hold the teeth in their new position once the treatment is finished.

Clear plastic retainers resemble a thin, clear gum-shield, which is custom made to fit perfectly over the teeth to keep them in place after treatment. We provide these retainers to all of our patients.

Hawley retainers resemble a removable appliance but they hold rather than move the teeth. We commonly use these in younger children after interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Permanent Retainers

Fixed bonded retainers consist of a thin stainless steel wire, which is permanently bonded behind the front teeth. They hold the teeth permanently in place but they are not needed in every case.
