Case 1

This is Ms A, she had braces when she was a teenager. She wore some retainer plates for a few years after treatment was completed and now her teeth have somewhat drifted back. She works in a media related job and does not wish to have braces done again. We offered her an Invisalign Express option and her case was treated out over 20 weeks. We have now placed her on upper and lower fixed orthodontic retainers that are placed on the back of her upper and lower front teeth. They are not visible and we have also modified the design so she could still floss and clean as per normal.*

case1

Our teeth sit in a buffer zone between the muscle balance of the lip, cheek, tongue and jaw muscles. As we age (no matter if we are 10, 20, 30, 40 years old or beyond) the muscle tension of these structures change. As a result the teeth may drift according to these muscular changes and tend to go back to their original position – crooked teeth. Therefore, we will need to have some form of semi-permanent retention if we wish to have perfectly aligned teeth.

As we are now at level 1 restrictions we are almost back running as per usual. We are now able to see all appointments and consultations, while still triaging patients and getting them to sanitize their hands upon arrival.

Unfortunately, we are still trying to spread patient appointments to allow us to sanitize after each patient thoroughly and to help practice social distancing within our waiting area. Due to our protocols we may not have as many availabilities and we thank you guys for being understanding and patient with us.

If you are due for an appointment or would like to book yourself in for a consultation please get in touch with us by emailing or calling us.

If you are feeling unwell or are having flu like symptoms please get in touch with us to reschedule your appointment to help keep the staff and our patients safe.
