Accelerated Braces™

Accelerated Braces™ - Center Of Dental Expertise in Melissia

Treatment with self-ligating braces. Self-ligating braces are defined as "a [dental] brace, which utilizes a permanently installed, moveable component to entrap the archwire"One of the most significant differences from conventional dental braces is the absence of elastic ligature (bands or ties). Self-ligating braces typically are smaller and more aesthetic since a metal door is required to hold wires in place (this prevents "invisible" or clear options of these braces, with the exception of 3M Unitek who have devised a hybrid bracket called the "Smartclip"). They also tend to stand off the teeth further toward the lips and cheeks. The ties on this type of brace are used to hold the archwire in place. The self-ligating braces uses a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, thus reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth. However, there are many similarities to typical braces, such as the fitting on such appliances; self-ligating braces are glued onto the teeth and are not removable until treatment is complete. Regular cleaning is also essential for effective treatment and desirable results.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces - Center Of Dental Expertise in Melissia
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Ceramic braces are nearly invisible!

This type of dental braces is suitable for patients concerned about their appearance, as the ceramic brackets are translucent blending with the natural tooth color, but they are much more expensive. However, ceramic brackets are also more brittle and prone to breakage, so they are not recommended for cases that require large pressures to move teeth.

Damon™ Braces

Guaranteed for 5 years.

Damon braces are based on one of the modern technologies in orthodontics called ‘self-ligation’. For this reason they are also referred as ‘Self Ligating Braces’. Unlike classic braces, Damon brackets do not require ligatures or small bands that are usually used to keep the arch-wires in place. They offer a lower-friction solution to teeth straightening. The Damon brackets use a "sliding-door" technology that allows the wire to slide back and forth inside the bracket causing less friction. Therefore they are considered as more comfortable for the patient than the other types of dental braces. Also, Damon brackets offer faster orthodontic treatment time and smaller number of adjustments.

Guaranteed for 5 years.Orthodontic retainers are custom-made devices, made usually of wires or clear plastic, that hold teeth in position after surgery or any method of realigning teeth.

Most patients are required to wear their retainer(s) every night at first, with many also being directed to wear them during the day - at least initially. There are three types of retainers typically prescribed by orthodontists and dentists: Hawley, Essix, and Bonded (Fixed) retainers.

Six Month Smiles™

Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed by your smile?  

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk.  They feel stuck because they do not want to wear metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.  Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought - Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.


Inman Aligner™

Inman Aligner™ - Center Of Dental Expertise in Melissia

The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. It is the orthodontic treatment of choice for adult relapse.

In the past anyone with crooked teeth have had only a few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces work well but are slow and can also be costly.

Because of this many people choose to have porcelain veneers instead. This often involves heavy grinding of the teeth to get them into the right position first. As a result many patients choose to do nothing and just live with it.

However the Inman Aligner now gives us all a very real alternative. Because it works so quickly and efficiently, if you dont like the idea of having brackets stuck to your teeth or waiting months and months for a clear brace to work, you can now have your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks.

This also means that anyone considering veneers to align their teeth now has a far more conservative solution. You might not even need veneers at all.

Even if veneers are absolutely necessary because your teeth are so discoloured and mis-shapen, the Inman Aligner the perfect way to align the teeth first quickly before the veneers are prepared. This way you can get a far more conservative solution.

The Inman Aligner is not just an orthodontic appliance. Many cosmetic dentists are calling it the "missing link between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry."

It has also been described as the "Greatest Innovation in Cosmetic Dentistry since the porcelain veneer".

Not every case is possible and of course there are limitations, but if you are suitable you could get a fantastic smile in a matter of weeks and at far less cost.
