What are braces?

Braces are dental devices used to align teeth correctly so that patients get beautiful smiles, comfortable bites and clear speech. The dental speciality that covers braces is called orthodontics.

What types of braces are available?

Braces are structural or cosmetic. Structural braces are fitted for children while cosmetic braces are placed for adults and adolescents. Braces may be fixed or removable. Structural or traditional braces are made of stainless steel. Cosmetic braces are made of clear ceramic material or clear plastic. Some braces are self-ligating, that is, they use a slide mechanism rather than elastic bands to connect to the dental archwire. Lingual braces are metal braces placed on the inner surface of teeth. This type of brace is not visible and are preferred by patients requiring cosmetic braces.

How long do you have to wear braces for?

The length of orthodontic treatment depends on the needs and orthodontic problems of each individual patient. Treatments for adults may take a longer time. On average, patients need to wear braces for about 2 years and then they need to wear a retainer to maintain the corrected position of teeth. For some adults treatment may take about 3 years.

How are braces installed on teeth?

For fixed braces, the orthodontist dries the teeth and places glue or bonding cement on the braces. The braces are placed on teeth and a UV light is shone on them to cure the glue or cement. For removable braces, an impression of the teeth is taken and a technician makes the removable brace consisting of a plastic plate and wires. The brace is then fitted on teeth.

How do braces work on teeth?

Braces exert a steady pressure on teeth. The pressure is periodically adjusted as needed by the orthodontist. Eventually the pressure exerted by braces corrects the alignment of teeth.

Do braces hurt?

Braces are uncomfortable when first placed on teeth. Patients experience soreness and need to get used to the pressure exerted on the teeth by braces. Patients normally get used to braces within a month.

I can never ever thank you all enough for the outstanding treatment and service you provideDavid, Australia, 21 10 20

Dr Semaan and his exceptional team have changed my family’s lives. He managed to correct hereditary bite issues and made us thankful every time we travelled the 800-kilometre trip. We had minimal face to face due to the distance we had to travel. I can never ever thank you all enough for the outstanding treatment and service you provide.

Braces  
We use the world's only fully customised braces. Most orthodontists use 1980s technology. These traditional braces use standard brackets and the provider has to manually bend each wire to try and achieve a particular result. There are many appointments where braces are taken off and put back on in different positions and many wire changes. The insignia brackets are all custom made and the wires are custom bent to exact specifications so there is very little time wasted and perfect results are achieved many months faster.What does that mean for you? This means that the diagnosis, treatment and results of the Insignia braces are far more accurate and predictable. Your smile will be perfect in shorter time. This means shorter office visits, fewer office visits and shorter treatment times. This means less time out of work or school. We also offer the brackets in clear ceramic. 
Orthodontist Consultation  
FREE CONSULTATIONS - We are the only specialist orthodontic office on the Gold Coast that offers free (no-gap) consultations. This includes full orthodontic photos, X-Rays and comprehensive treatment plan and quote. 
Invisalign™  
Dr Semaan has achieved the highest status of invisalign provider in the country and is the #1 invisalign provider on the Gold Coast.  Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without the need for old-fashioned traditional metal braces. Instead, Invisalign uses clear aligners, which are virtually invisible to those around you, to move your teeth into the desired position. How does Invisalign work? Invisalign aligners are orthodontically moulded trays which look and feel like super thin mouthguards. These aligners are designed to fit over your teeth and work to gradually – and gently – move your teeth into a straighter position. These aligners are specifically designed to your teeth and your teeth only.  Every 2-3 weeks throughout the course of your treatment, you will be issued with a new set of aligners. Each set builds on the work of the last one, so your teeth continue to move throughout treatment.

The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team are outstandingAnupa, Australia, 01 12 20

After contemplating if my misaligned teeth should be fixed. I finally decided to give it a crack through Holistic Dental Brunswick under Dr Raksha Baskar's treatment protocol. From the get-go, Dr Baskar has been very informative, friendly and has made this journey enjoyable at the same time. She has an eye for details and perfection in her hands. My only regret why didn't I tried Holistic Dental earlier. I highly recommend Holistic Dental to anyone who will settle only for the best results, excellent services and time efficiency. The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team are outstanding. Especial thanks to Dr Raksha Baskar and Asmita. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Braces $3437 - $4200
What are the types of orthodontic treatments? Braces – Traditional metal or modern ceramic brackets are attached to each tooth and an archwire is threaded through. The constant pressure exerted on the teeth and bones by the wire will gradually move the teeth in to the desired position. Elastic bands are stretched between the upper and lower braces if additional force is required to move the teeth. Clear aligners – Clear aligners such as the Invisalign, can be used to correct many misalignment and crowding issues without the discomfort and appearance of metal braces and wires. Clear aligners need to be worn continuously except during eating and with time will apply gradual pressure on teeth and bones to move them into the desired position. Plates – Plates are small plastic devices that can be used in the mouth to push teeth in to the desired position or hold them in place. Unlike traditional braces which are attached to the teeth, plates can be taken in and out of the mouth.
Invisalign™ $3437 - $4964
Invisalign orthodontic aligners are clear plastic trays that could help correct your crowded or misaligned teeth without the need for uncomfortable and unaesthetic metal braces and brackets. The teeth are moved gradually, with a new set of clear trays every fortnight, until the desired level of movement is achieved. The plastic trays are comfortable to use and can be worn daily (including overnight). The clear trays are all but invisible in your mouth, so most people won’t even realise you are getting orthodontic treatment when they see you.
