Most people often tend to opt for braces during their teenage years, as more often than not the vast majority of us will already have all of our permanent teeth by then. It's also much easier for your orthodontist to detect potential future issues such as crooked teeth, gaps or bad bites at this young age. However, that's not to say that adults can't have braces. In fact, adult braces are among our most popular form of treatments here at Seapoint Clinic.
No matter what your age, orthodontics can correct the position of your teeth and jaws using a wide variety of treatments. Not many people realise the damage they are inadvertently causing by not correcting teeth that are improperly positioned. So, how do you find the treatment that is right for you?
Imagine being able to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing! It is now possible to wear braces and nobody will know. With our most popular choice for tooth straightening, you can straighten teeth discreetly and expect to have the results you want in 6 months or less!

Invisalign is becoming increasingly common among patients of all ages, thanks to their incredibly discreet design and nature. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign is completely removable, meaning you can take them off as you please for meals, drinks out and even brush your teeth as normal throughout the entirety of your treatment. Your custom made clear aligners are replaced every 2-4 weeks depending on how much movement is required. On average, Invisalign treatment lasts about a year but may go quicker in some cases. On the day of your initial consultation, your dentist will be able to tell you exactly how long your treatment will last and thanks to our 3D scanning technology, can even show you how your teeth will move over time.
Six Month Braces
Six Month Braces are the ideal treatment for anyone looking to improve their smile for an upcoming social event such as a wedding, christening or even new job. Six Month Braces focuses solely on your front teeth, so any improvement is purely cosmetic. If you require your back teeth or bite altered at all, you may still require conventional braces or Invisalign.
Six Month Braces are available in traditional metal or see-through finish, with white braces matching your natural teeth colour to make them as discreet as possible.
I was apprehensive at first but I only ended up having them on for 4 months and now I love my teeth!
