Why should we bother straightening teeth?

Leaving your teeth unaligned and uncared for can affect your overall bodily health.

Some benefits to choosing an orthodontic treatment include:

  • Healthier teeth and gums
  • Broader smile
  • Enhanced facial features
  • Clearer speech for interviews, public speaking, etc.

The fast treatment, self-litigating braces

At Saacks Orthodontics we often recommend ‘Damon System’ – a discrete way to align your teeth. This system combines tieless brackets and high technology archwires that move your teeth fast and comfortably with proven results. Self-litigating braces, don’t require elastics like traditional metal braces do. This can cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Instead, your self-litigating braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

Have the freedom to take your braces in and out whenever suits you

Another orthodontic treatment we offer is Invisalign which allows patients to enjoy the benefits of braces while having the luxury of removing their aligners when suits them.

Invisalign are plastic aligners that move your teeth each aligner at a time, while they require you to wear them most of the time, Invisalign is removable at your pleasure. This means you can still have the freedom to brush and floss your teeth without any interference and you can remove your aligners for photos or speeches or a special occasion.

To determine the most appropriate treatment for your lifestyle and in consideration of your oral health, we will perform a full mouth assessment, which can help us decide on your ideal treatment.
