Orthodontic treatment options

With continuous advances in technology, orthodontic treatment is becoming more popular. The traditional ‘train-track’ metal braces are no longer the only choice for straightening teeth. You can now choose a more modern, more efficient and more discreet brace system to achieve the smile you want. At 1A Orthodontics, we offer a full range of orthodontic solutions and can help you find the right solution for you and your lifestyle.


Invisalign clear aligners

The Invisalign clear aligner system straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner approximately every week, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually towards the projected final position.


Fixed appliances

Traditional fixed braces are still probably the best option if you want cheap metal braces. However, some children may find these to be unsightly, uncomfortable and difficult to clean. But there are other styles to consider which offer different pros and cons. We can help explain these options at your initial appointment.

Removable appliances

A removable appliance is made from a plastic plate with wires coming from the sides. These grip the teeth to keep the brace in place. Removable appliances have a limited number of uses, mainly because they are restricted to moving single teeth and widening either the upper or lower arches. They are not precision appliances and therefore cannot be used for complicated or fine tooth movements.


Lingual appliances

Lingual braces are one of the most discreet methods of straightening teeth and can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic problems.

Lingual braces are fitted to the back of your teeth and are invisible to the outside world providing a great option for patients who, for social or professional reasons, do not want anyone to know they are wearing braces.

Functional appliances

Functional appliances are used to correct a group of bite problems where the top teeth bite in front of the lower teeth. One type of functional appliance is called a Twin Block. It derives its name from the split nature of the device, in which you have an upper block and a lower block which fit together like twins.


Dentofacial Orthopaedics

At 1A Orthodontics we offer a variety of functional appliances in order to correct the way upper and lower teeth fit over each other. These Brace systems are specifically designed for children with growing mouths.

When your teeth have been aligned into position and the desired end-result is achieved, they need to be stabilized until your bone, gums, and muscles have adapted to the new tooth positions. This stage is called retention and follows the removal of the active braces.
