Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment involves correcting malocclusion, which is the misalignment of a bite or incorrect spacing between teeth. This is usually accomplished through the use of orthodontic braces. Orthodontic Treatment can enhance a smile at any age, In general, as long as your gums and jaw bone are healthy, there are no age limits to having Orthodontic braces.

Self Ligating Braces
Self Ligating Braces do not need O-rings mainly less discomfort (due to lower forces), less appointments are necessary in total, treatment duration may be reduced and it is easier to clean your teeth (which reduces the risk of decay or gum disease).
Stainless Steel Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch-wires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic Braces (Tooth Coloured or Clear)
Tooth-coloured braces consist of ceramic or composite plastic brackets which blend in with the surrounding tooth structure and makes the braces less noticeable. Depending on the systems, the arch-wires may be metal or tooth-coloured.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore “invisible” when you smile. Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth; the metal appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
