Functional Treatment

Functional appliances (e.g. the Twin Block) are a popular type of reducing the projection of the front teeth in patients who are growing.

Comprehensive Treatment

Comprehensive treatment is undertaken for the majority of patients during the early teens. Treatment aims to create a beautiful, balanced and functional smile (optimal outcome).

Adult Treatment

Teeth can be moved at any age as long as the teeth and gums are healthy. The expectations from treatment may be different in adult patients, e.g. adults may want different treatment endpoints.

Orthognathic Treatment

Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic (or-thog-NATH-ik) surgery, corrects irregularities of the jaw bones and realigns the jaws and teeth to improve the way they work. Making these corrections may also improve your facial appearance.
