Orthodontics is the use of fixed traditional, clear aligners and invisible braces. Orthodontics corrects crooked, spaced and misaligned teeth and jaws and can be used for children, teens and adults. At Twelve Dental we offer the latest innovations in braces to ensure you get outstanding results.

Orthodontics is a speciality within dentistry which focuses on the alignment of teeth within the jaw as well as harnessing the growth and development of the jaw in children and teenagers.

Teeth do not always erupt in the correct position and there can be lifestyle and external factors which cause teeth to move into unwanted positions.

Using fixed braces, clear aligners and invisible braces, orthodontic treatment can improve the health and stability of teeth as well as their appearance, producing beautiful and healthy smiles.

We are delighted to have Dr Anthony Lam as our Specialist Orthodontist to look after patients from the age of 8 to above 70.

He will take the time to determine and discuss which treatment works best for you and your lifestyle! He has extensive experience and a range of knowledge of orthodontic appliances which will enhance your experience and treatment results.

Treatment time can be anywhere between 12- 24 months. Depending on the severity of your case and your expectation of the finished result.

We not only use the best materials available for orthodontic treatment. But, also offer state-of-the-art and innovative technologies to enhance your patient journey and results. This can also minimise your treatment duration. Often with a reduction in treatment time by 30-40%!

We welcome patients of all ages. And often recommend seeing our brace patients from the age of 8. If you think your child needs braces, we would be delighted to see your child for a specialist consultation to assess your concerns.

They may be placed under review until they are ready to start treatment. Or, early orthodontics may be started. This is sometimes required to aid and alter growth and jaw positions. (To help achieve ideal jaw positions and widths).

We usually recommend fixed braces for children. They tend to enjoy having coloured elastics. But, for the more image-conscious teen, we have tooth coloured braces and even InvisalignTeen.

Adult braces are increasingly popular and it’s never too late to benefit from orthodontic treatment. With our range of invisible aligners and hidden braces, you can transform your smile discreetly.

Yes!

Dr Anthony Lam specialises in hidden braces. Lingual braces are a modern and invisible alternative to conventional braces. They are fixed to the back of your teeth, making them the only truly invisible orthodontic appliances.

We are also Invisalign providers, for those patients seeking discreet braces without having them fixed to their teeth.

We promise first-class patient care and professional expertise. We deliver clinical excellence with experienced treatment plans to give you the smile you deserve.
