Braces

Affordable and Superior Orthodontic Treatment Available At Southern Cross Smiles in Docklands

At our dental clinic in Docklands, we offer a range of Orthodontic treatment options for both children and adults.

Orthodontic treatment or braces may be required for various reasons, some of which are:

  • Cross bite– One or multiple teeth bite inside the lower teeth towards the tongue

  • Crowding– Incorrectly positioned or extra teeth
  • Deep Overbite– The lower front teeth bite into the upper tissue of the upper teeth.
  • Extra teeth or missing teeth– This could be due to tooth decay/loss, trauma or genetically inherited condition
  • Protruding upper teeth – This condition is called overjet where the upper teeth protrude too much and is usually associated with jaw anomalies.

  • Smile Makeover –Patient wants a more symmetrical and confident smile.
  • Uneven Spacing between teeth– Unevenly shaped teeth that might be too large or small or missing teeth.
  • Improper occlusion and jaw alignment –This can result in chewing and biting problems
  • Under bite– In this condition the lower jaw is extends more than the upper jaw.

We offer a range of options to correct the above outlined conditions, which are:

Metal Braces

Metal braces use small brackets which are glued to individual teeth and a special metal wire connects them. These braces exert constant and the precise pressure to move the teeth into the desired direction and position. For every patient the set of braces are customized to deliver the desired result along with comfort.
There is also an option of clear ceramic braces for better aesthetics.
We offer FREE initial consultation for braces to all patients.

Invisalign (Clear Braces)

Invisalign is a revolutionary and proprietary treatment which involves a set of almost invisible clear set of aligners which the patients changes every two weeks. The desired teeth movement and result is achieved by gradual movement of teeth as the treatment progresses with each set of aligners.

The treatment plan is generated using Invisalign’s ClinCheck software and the treatment can be monitored using the software. Individual results vary for each patient but the software provides close to accurate idea of the final result.

As with metal/ceramic braces, we offer a FREE initial consultation for Invisalign.
