Metal braces are the most popular with children and teenagers. Different coloured modules can be placed and changed at each adjustment appointment.
Translucent clear braces, which are much more discreet, are the most popular with adults and some teenagers. These braces are made of materials that blend with the natural tooth colour, so that they are harder to see.
Lingual braces are attached to the inside of the teeth and are sometimes requested by patients because they cannot be seen.
However, lingual braces are more difficult to manage than conventional braces and, although they are growing in popularity, few Australian orthodontists choose to use them.
Suresmile uses 3D technology so that our orthodontist can simulate your treatment on the computer before you come in for your adjustment visits. Each tooth is prescribed the exact movement required so that custom wires can be individually manufactured for your treatment. These wires are bent with modern robots so that accuracy is guaranteed.
Suresmile treatment is faster than traditional braces, as tooth movement is precise and controlled. Multiple simultaneous movements are also possible, further reducing treatment time.
We are one of the few practices in Australia to utilise this state of the art technology.
