Orthodontic treatments focus on dental displacement and malocclusions as well as the control and modification of facial growth. Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons with regards to improving the general appearance of your teeth. Treatment is also often prescribed for practical reasons such as providing the patient with a functionally improved bite.
There are various treatment modalities including metal braces, ceramic(tooth cloured) braces as well as lingual braces. Lingual braces are placed on the inside surface of the teeth making them invisible from the outside. Recently Invisalign has been introduced which is a clear removable plate which is able to move teeth in a similar way to conventional braces.
