Naenae Dental Clinic’s dentists have carried out extensive post-graduate studies to be able to provide high-quality orthodontic treatment (the application of dental braces). Dental braces are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a person's bite, while also aiming to improve dental health and aesthetics.


Braces also fix gaps. They are often used to correct under-bites, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structure (to fix issues with the bite), and are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.


The treatment begins when a series of brackets are attached to the front side of each individual tooth by your dentist. The basic components of a bracket contain wings, a slot, and a base. The slot is where the wire is placed. Wings provide a means to hold a wire into the slot with a small rubber band, which vary in colour. The base is used to attach the bracket to the tooth.


When a force is applied to the roots of the teeth through the braces and the wire, cells in the bone and tissues surrounding the root are stimulated to act. Pressure at the bracket produces pressure and tension (pulling) at the root of the tooth, causing tooth movement and remodelling of the bone. This is a very slow and precise movement and is used by your dentist to move the teeth in their ideal position. The cost of your braces depends on the complexity of your case and the course of your treatment, and Naenae Dental Clinic provide braces for both children and adults.
