ORTHODONTICS – BRACES
“A confident smile radiates both health and beauty …
Orthodontics is the best way to bring balance to your smile.”
Many people’s teeth are not straight and even, that’s a fact, but with expert dental intervention, you can have and share a stunning smile.
You can be comfortable with your teeth – the way they look to you and others, and the way they work.
What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics (braces) is a method of adjusting irregularities of the teeth and is used to address conditions such as buck teeth, gaps in teeth, crowded teeth and misaligned or crooked teeth.
Modern cosmetic dentistry is highly effective in increasing and improving the aesthetics of teeth.
The highly-trained staff at Apple Dental Clinic bring together their knowledge, skills and experience to help people of all ages have beautiful, straight teeth using the latest techniques and materials such as braces, wires, springs, and elastics to get just the result each patient requires.
Whether removable or fixed, Apple Dental Clinic applies the optimal treatment method.
What is the best time for Orthodontics?
Normally, the best age for orthodontic braces is between six and 16 years. This is because the structure of children’s teeth is still forming making it easy to adjust. So orthodontics applied at that age can be preventive rather than responsive.
The “training” from early childhood is quicker and easier than having to adjust teeth when they have become rigid and will ensure that each person owns a beautiful smile in adulthood.
This does not mean that adults cannot benefit from orthodontics. Apple Dental Clinic successfully treats many adult patients who are delighted with the results.
Apple Dental Clinic brings flawless results to customers of any age.

How long does it take for this treatment method?
- For children: If the child’s teeth are in good condition, orthodontics will taketwo to three years. This is because children’s teeth are in the process of change and development and so it takes more time to complete.
- For adults: Normally 18 months if there is no need for tooth extraction, 24 months where teeth need to be removed.
Will orthodontics be painful?
If force is used to move the teeth quickly, there can be discomfort. In the long term, the result is not good, physically or psychologically.
If using light pressure, the teeth move more slowly but this approach is safe and sustainable, minimizing pain and discomfort. The important factor in this case is patience.
