Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

Modern orthodontics is not just for children! More than 50% of our orthodontic patients at Dental Artistry are adults.

The range of treatments available to us means that we can custom-make an orthodontic plan for you that fits your lifestyle and budget, and cosmetic options such as tooth-coloured braces and Invisalign mean that straightening your teeth no longer involves a mouth full of ‘train tracks’.

Orthodontic treatment can not only improve your appearance and self esteem; it can also improve the health of your teeth, gums and jaws. Poorly aligned teeth are more difficult to clean, increasing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss. A bad bite can cause abnormal wear of the teeth and TMJ (jaw joint) problems.

Many of our adult patients have orthodontics in conjunction with other treatments such as tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants and amalgam filling replacement. The varied skills of our dental practitioners ensure that patients can have all of their treatment needs filled here at Dental Artistry.

Grant

Twenty-four year old Grant had a severe underbite. He had been told by several orthodontists that it could only be fixed with jaw surgery. Although this case is not yet complete, it is so amazing that we want to show it off! So far we have expanded Grant’s upper jaw to remove his underbite and we are now using braces to straighten his teeth – no surgery required!
