Port Macquarie

Straight teeth mean more than just the aesthetic benefit. Straight teeth can enhance your overall health. Whether you want to straighten your teeth or your child’s teeth, Saacks Orthodontics Port Macquarie will have the solution for you.

If you live in the Port Macquarie area and are looking for an internationally qualified, dual trained orthodontist with a family friendly outlook, we would love for you to come and visit us at Saacks Orthodontics.

Our newly refurbished Port Macquarie practice gives our patients innovative and advanced treatments, without hindering the end results.

Our treatment portfolio includes:

Traditional braces

Traditional braces are the most used orthodontic treatment worldwide, and for good reason – they work. As the most well known treatment for straightening teeth, Dr Saacks has years of knowledge fitting this results-focused treatment to his Port Macquarie patients, young and old.

Traditional braces have caught up with the advancements in orthodontic treatment and they are now smaller, smoother and more comfortable to wear.

Traditional metal braces can correct more severe problems such as:

  • Severely crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Jaw problems
  • Misaligned bites

Invisalign

Invisalign’s main appeal is the removable, almost invisible aligners patients can take out to drink, eat and to attend special events.

Its essential patients wear the comfortable, thin, plastic aligners for 22 hours a day to maximise results.

Often referred to as the greatest accomplishment in orthodontics to date, it’s the revolutionary way Invisalign has removed the need for metal brackets or wires to successfully straighten a patients teeth that’s catapulted its popularity.

Dr Saacks also offers Invisalign for our teenage patients in Port Macquarie. It won’t interrupt their teenage lives so they can keep doing the things they love, like playing contact sports, playing musical instruments and concentrating on their studies.

SPEED Braces

Dr Saacks has been exclusively trained in America for the application of SPEED Braces. SPEED Braces are generally 1/3 smaller than traditional braces. This can help our patients maintain optimum oral health and hygiene throughout their treatment.

SPEED Braces use an energy-storing component called a “Spring Clip” which is like a computer chip inside the braces. Programmed by Dr Saacks in Port Macquarie, this spring clip is made of super-elastic material and applies a light force to gently move teeth.

By eliminating the need for orthodontic elastics (used for traditional braces) treatment can be quicker, more comfortable and potentially require fewer appointments.

Insignia System

The Insignia system at Saacks Orthodontics Port Macquarie is one of the most effective methods for obtaining straight teeth fast and effectively. As a computerised system that combines digital treatment with specifically made braces and wires, its tailored to your specific dental anatomy.

Dr Saacks will take an impression of your teeth and send it to Insignia’s smile design lab where a comprehensive 3D model of your bite is created using sophisticated imaging software to fully customise your treatment.

The insignia system applies technically precise objectives with a technologically driven background to deliver superior results.

Damon Braces

Saacks Orthodontics have the self-ligating braces treatment, Damon Braces available at their Port Macquarie practice.

The self-ligating Damon braces are a progressive type of braces that don’t require O-rings or elastics as traditional braces do. The Damon Braces hold the wire and lock it in place essentially like a gate. A slide mechanism is used to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more easily, quickly and with increased comfort.

Damon Braces are for patients wanting the same results as traditional braces, with the added ease of having a less bulky orthodontic appliance.
