Lots of our patients are frustrated that their teeth are not straighter. Adults as well as children are now having their teeth straightened, which is especially common in the lower jaw. Our orthodontist, Dr Joe Noar, uses the most up-to-date techniques so that braces are barely visible. He may use transparent or ceramic tooth coloured brackets and transparent wires so that the brace blends in with the teeth. Lingual orthodontics is another technique which hides the braces behind the teeth so they are completely unseen.
