Orthodontic Braces

Orthodontists have considered traditional metal braces a tried and tested treatment for straighter teeth since the 1970s. They help achieve the correct alignment of crooked teeth and misaligned bites.

Traditional steel braces are a popular option for orthodontic treatment. As a cost effect treatment, they provide reliable results for patients of all ages. Metal braces have evolved significantly. Improvements in metal brackets, wires, and elastics have made metal braces more comfortable and efficient in orthodontic treatment.

Several types of braces are available at MP Ortho. We can assist you with clear or ceramic braces that match your natural tooth colour, depending on your preference. Lingual and self-ligating braces are also available.

For the best results with braces, we recommend patients:

  • Follow the recommended oral health routine of brushing and flossing daily
  • Wear orthodontic appliances and elastics prescribed by your orthodontist
  • Appreciate that the desired results take time and are worth the wait
  • Follow their orthodontic treatment plan to transform their smile

How do Braces Work?

Our approach to treatment is simple. We’re in this together.

Braces adjust the position and alignment of teeth by applying gradual pressure to teeth. Your orthodontist will attach brackets to individual teeth to apply the pressure. Wires connect each bracket and work together to shift the position of teeth into the desired alignment.

With careful planning and modelling, your orthodontist can use braces to carefully adjust the alignment of the teeth. Braces can also help fix complex orthodontic problems such as the alignment of upper and lower jaws.
