At Hartog Dental, we know how important our orthodontic care is to you and your family which is why our two orthodontists are trained to consultant specialist level.
Braces (orthodontic treatment) straighten or move teeth to improve the appearance and function of teeth. Braces can be removable, so you can take them out and clean them, or fixed to your teeth.
Braces can be made of metal, plastic or ceramic. Invisible braces are made of a clear plastic, we use the Invisalign clear brace system.

Crooked teeth can be corrected with orthodontic braces, which work by moving the teeth into a more properly aligned direction. The dental braces usually take the most part of a year, to a few years (depending on the severity of the teeth misalignment) to successfully move the teeth into the desired straighter position. However, not everyone wants to have dental braces for such a long period of time – which may be the reason why some people just opt to endure their crooked teeth by hiding their smiles behind hands or by learning how to smile in the smallest (and most timid) way possible, rather than have the metal braces on their mouth for a long period of time, but today there are many ways of straightening your teeth without using metal braces.
