Harmony Orthodontics services offer different options to help patients achieve their dental needs. Our treatments cover a wide range of orthodontic appliances, which include the following:
- Metal: This is the most common material for fixed braces. We also recommend this option for patients who have crossbites and crooked teeth. Treatment may last from six months to two years, depending on the patient’s condition.
- Lingual: Lingual braces are placed on the inside of the teeth, making them less noticeable. Unlike metal braces, these may not correct all types of misalignments. We may only recommend lingual braces to patients who need minor adjustments on their teeth.
- Ceramic: Ceramic braces have elastic ties that adjust the teeth similar to metal wires. This material, however, is less noticeable compared to those used in other types of braces.
Expander: Our orthodontist may use this appliance to widen the palate so the upper and lower jaw will fit together properly. It stretches the centre palatal suture, giving space for developing teeth and correcting bite problems. We may recommend this treatment for patients who will undergo jaw surgery.
Clear aligners: Our services include these to help patients achieve the smile they want without worrying about the discomfort associated with traditional braces. These transparent, removable aligners help move the teeth to their appropriate position. Patients need to wear the aligners for a specific period, except when eating and brushing.
Removable appliances: These orthodontic materials may help retain the teeth in their appropriate position and influence jaw growth. We usually recommend these during early treatment protocols or in conjunction with other fixed appliances.
