Orthodontics

Adult orthodontic treatment can be a great way to improve your smile. If you have crowded or spaced teeth, teeth which stick out or are misaligned, then this treatment could provide you with a beautiful smile.

We offer 3 different types of Orthodontic treatment, each with its own advantages.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a fast removable appliance for crowded or protruded teeth at the front of the mouth. This treatment process can take between 6-18 week to complete. This treatment can be very effective for those who have previously had orthodontic treatment which as relapsed. As the appliance is removable, the Inman Aligner can be taken out for important meetings or engagements. Dr. Kilroy is an experienced certified Inman Aligner dentist.

Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners are clear preformed plastic retainers which gently push one tooth at time into the required position. These aligners are almost invisible, removable and easy to wear. Because this system moves one tooth at a time, it typically takes the longest to straighten teeth, with treatment times taking from 12 months.

Fixed Orthodontics

Sometimes Inman Aligners and Clear braces can’t fix all the problems associated with squint teeth, and sometimes the above options aren’t what patients want for whatever reason.  At Morningside Dental Clinic, we use white brackets and tooth coloured wires when carrying out fixed orthodontic treatment. These braces are barely visible and although treatment times vary depending on how misaligned your teeth are, this treatment usually takes approximately 6 months.
