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.

They encourage and answer all questions in a timely and friendly mannerBridget, UK, 19 07 22

Dr Semaan and his staff have been excellent during my son's treatment. They have been attentive and professional on each visit. They encourage and answer all questions in a timely and friendly manner. I am glad my son is being treated by this particular orthodontist and his staff.

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.

It’s definitely worth coming there for your teethRuby, Australia, 07 06 21

Their service is the best. The dentist is so friendly and patient to explain every detail about my wisdom teeth. I was suffering from my wisdom teeth for few days until I went to Eve Dental, Dentist used his professional skill to remove my wisdom teeth without any pain and the speed is that u need to experience by yourself. Also, the staff and environment is very comfortable and relax so I don’t even feel I am in the dental clinic. I am definitely will come back there to check up on my teeth and recommend all my family and friends to go there! It’s definitely worth coming there for your teeth.

They are very professional but also very friendly and build a great rapport with youNicole, Australia, 26 11 17

After my consultation with Dr. Victoria Beck my recommendation was the following (I was quite a complicated case) Invisalign for top teeth and traditional braces for bottom teeth, jaw surgery as I had an underbite and two implants to replace missing teeth as well as a whitening treatment. I am extremely pleased with the final result. Dr. Beck is an amazing orthodontist. She takes a holistic approach to ensure your final result will not just look good but be functional. The whole team at Torque Orthodontics are very professional but also very friendly and build a great rapport with you. They surprised me with a bottle of champagne at the completion of my treatment, I had to hold my tears back, they truly care about their patients.
