Orthodontics

Laser + Holistic Dental offers non-surgical and non-extraction orthodontics for all ages – children and adults alike.
If your teeth are crowded or overlapped it is never too late to start an orthodontics program to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

At Laser + Holistic Dental we practise a technique called dentofacial orthopaedics that focuses on developing the jaw bones of children and adults of all ages to avoid extracting teeth. Our dentists have international training in dentofacial orthopaedic techniques and believe that it is the best way to approach the complex area of the jaw and mouth.

“Children from the age of 7 should be orthodontically assessed in order to identify potential problems”

Children from the age of 7 should be orthodontically assessed in order to identify potential problems. By treating your child early this optimises their treatment due to the flexible nature and natural growth of the jaw bones. This way we can develop wide and healthy smiles and also improve oxygenation of the body by developing their airways and breathing potential promoting longevity and healthy well being. An early intervention is always best with orthodontic problems, however that being said dentofacial orthopaedics can be done at any age.

The aim of our dentofacial orthopaedic techniques at Laser + Holistic Dental is to create a perfect bite and smile, taking into account teeth positioning, arch sizes and jaw joint position.

“Laser + Holistic Dental instead grows the jaw bone to allow teeth to fit and align themselves”

Our approach differs from conventional orthodontics as we look at the whole picture instead of only taking the teeth into account. Where many may opt for jaw surgery and extraction of teeth, Laser + Holistic Dental instead grows the jaw bone to allow teeth to fit and align themselves. We use a combination of techniques and appliances to accommodate patient’s request offering you a custom made orthodontic programme to suit your needs.

Keeping in line with Laser + Holistic Dental’s metal free orthodontic policy we prefer the Invisalign system because it does not use nickel based braces and wire (avoiding any metal sensitivities), it is very comfortable and more attractive than conventional braces. As a bonus Invisalign trays are easy to clean, reducing the risk of decay and bad breath.

At Laser + Holistic Dental we also carry out orthodontics without the use of latex elastics to avoid any potential for adverse reactions.
