What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a dental speciality that concentrates on the movement and correct positioning of teeth. When a patient is under orthodontic care, our highly experienced dentists will look to correct and improve the functions of teeth and jaws using a variety of oral appliances – the most well-known of which are fixed metal ‘bracket and wire style’ braces.
In addition, other services include clear aligner style dental appliances such as Invisalign, that allow patients to address many of the common orthodontic problems with greater flexibility and discreteness.
If you are considering fixed braces or removable aligners such as Invisalign, Waterford patients should know that our dentists will work with you to determine the right course of action based on needs and/or requirements.

Traditional Orthodontics in Waterford QLD
Traditional orthodontic braces have been around in one form or another for decades. Nowadays, however, wholly visible metal style braces of old have been replaced by modern versions consisting of sleek stainless steel or titanium brackets which are secured to the teeth for the duration of the treatment. Metal or tooth-coloured wiring is then threaded through to create the tension which enables teeth to move gradually over time.
Clear Aligner Treatment
Here at our dental clinic in Waterford Qld, we also offer patients an alternative solution to permanent braces in the form of removable clear aligners. This form of orthodontic care fixes many of the same dental issues that bracket and wire style braces do, except that they do so in a discreet manner.
Made from clear plastic, aligners such as Invisalign®, ClearCorrect™ and AngelAlign are designed to be worn over the teeth like an invisible mouthguard and utilise natural forces to straighten a smile. This time, however, rather than one appliance being worn for the duration, a series of aligners are worn in sequence to achieve the desired effect.
