Braces

+ More
  • Braces are used to straighten and align teeth. They can help to correct many orthodontic problems, and prevent problems further down the line. The brace works by applying continuous but gentle pressure to the teeth, which causes the teeth to slowly move. In order for the teeth to move into the desired direction, the braces need to be adjusted regularly by the orthodontist.

  • 1 - 4 days

    This time is required per trip. Patients need several trips to get the braces adjusted, unless an orthodontist at home can offer follow-up care.

    I wish all dentists and services for dental work could be this good in Australia. We went to Thailand to see a dentist because we simply couldn't afford having work done here at home. As it happens Thai dentists rank up there as the best in the world and after going, I can see why. The facilities are modern and extensive, the dentists are highly trained and exacting, you can get a lot of work done in a short time, and you save thousands of dollars in the fee scale compared to our country. I have a white, perfect grin at last, after years of smiling.

Dental World: The Oral Health Center is split across two floors, both of which have a modern look and really nice design concept. The rooms at the center are spacious and bright, and the equipment used was all modern. During my visit the staff were very nice and helpful.
