Do you have difficulty biting? Do you feel that your jaw is disproportionately long or short? Perhaps you feel that your jaw or face is asymmetrical?
If the answer is yes, there might be a chance that the problem lies not only with your teeth, but also the jaws. People with an underbite or open bite problem may have difficulty in pronouncing certain words and may even have problems biting.

Making the decision to do braces may sometimes be overwhelming. For a start, which clinic to go to and what type of braces to choose may already give you much to think about.
A common misconception among patients and parents is that the final results will be the same no matter which clinic they go. Finding the lowest price may therefore become the main guiding factor. Unfortunately, this is not true as treatment philosophies vary among dental clinics. The following areas are where we stand out from the rest.
1. Minimal Intervention & Transparent Pricing
Our orthodontic treatment philosophy is minimal intervention. This means we only do what is in your best interests to achieve that healthy and confident smile. Our dental team will not recommend unnecessary treatments. On cases that allow, our dentists sometimes advise against tooth extraction(s) before braces treatment.
2. Affordable Payment Plans & Student Packages
Financial ability should not come between you and a healthy, confident smile. For this reason, we provide interest-free instalment plans and Student pricing. Contact us for details and eligibility.
