Children’s Orthodontics

If you have any concerns about your child’s teeth alignment, our specialist orthodontist can assess children as young as 7 for early intervention treatment. We also offer orthodontics specifically designed for teenagers.


Discover the Brilliance of Invisalign®. Already trusted by over 12 million smiles worldwide, Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, which is why many people prefer them as an alternative to traditional fixed braces.

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are small brackets that are attached to your teeth and linked together with a wire to shape the arch. Our braces are made using tooth-coloured ceramics to provide an almost invisible, yet a rapid and predictable solution.
