Braces at Seapoint Clinic
By the age of 15, the vast majority of people will already have all of their permanent teeth. It's why orthodontic treatment is so common at this young ages, as your orthodontist can detect potential long term issues such as crooked or misaligned teeth much easier. It's also why so many people wear braces during their teenage years. However, braces aren't just for teenagers. More and more adults are now wearing braces, as treatment is more discreet than ever before. With a wide range of orthodontic treatments readily available, from Six Month Braces, Invisalign and conventional braces, we'll be able to get you smiling in no time. But how do you pick the treatment that's right for you?
I was apprehensive at first but I only ended up having them on for 4 months and now I love my teeth!

Six Month Smiles
Invisalign is becoming increasingly popular among patients of all ages, as you can straighten your teeth without anyone even realising you are having treatment! As they involved wearing a set of clear removable custom-made aligners, you can brush your teeth and even eat what you want. On average, treatment takes about a year to complete but can go quicker if there are fewer movements required.
Six Month Braces
Six Month Braces are the ideal choice if you want the best possible results in the shortest possible time. As Six Month Braces focuses solely on the front teeth, treatment is purely for cosmetic purposes and may not be suitable should you require your bite to be adjusted. Six Month Braces is our most popular form of treatment with 25 - 35 year olds, as often people will opt for treatment in the lead up to a major social event such as a wedding, christening or even job interview.
Often referred to as 'train tracks', fixed braces are able to fine-tine the position of your teeth. Unlike years gone by, treatment is now far more discreet as modern sophisticated designs allow us to reduce treatment time.
