Dental Care Centre is excited to announce that we can now offer in house orthodontic treatment. After extensive training Dr Amess is able to offer a number of orthodontic techniques from the more conventional metal bracket and wire to the Invisalign (virtually invisible plastic retainers).

BENEFITS OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

A confident, attractive smile and a boost in self-esteem are just a few of the benefits of orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment also helps to keep teeth and gums healthy and can aid in the prevention of tooth decay, gum disease and bone destruction as it reduces food trapping and increases success in cleaning teeth (removing bacteria build-up from between teeth and under gums). Poorly aligned teeth can also contribute to speech impairment, unbalanced wear patterns / chipped teeth and greater exposure to dental injuries.

Orthodontic treatment is another way the team at Dental Care Centre can help keep your teeth and gums healthy and happy to keep your smile looking great for years to come.

THE METHODS

Dental Care Centre is pleased to be able to offer a number of different orthodontic options to enable Dr Amess to tailor the right treatment plan to suit your needs and budget.

Dr Amess is a graduate of the Progressive Orthodontics training programme. This programme is specifically designed to train and support General Practice Dentists in the provision of orthodontic treatment. It is a rigorous 2 year distance learning programme with a number of seminars and a comprehensive exam and case submission process. Tim has thoroughly enjoyed the programme and the knowledge and opportunities that the course has given him.

FASTBRACES

The FASTBRACES® teeth straightening orthodontic technique has been successfully treating patients in the USA for more than 20 years and is now available in Gisborne.

FASTBRACES® is an innovative orthodontic treatment, specifically designed to move teeth fast and efficiently with gentle forces giving beautiful, straight teeth in a matter of months…not years!

The triangular shaped brackets, along with the super elastic wire, create the ideal combination of gentle forces to move the teeth in a more natural way. The main benefits with the FASTBRACES® technique is the reduced treatment time and that in 90% of the cases no extraction is required.

  • FAST – treatment time that is measured in months instead of years!
  • EASY – retainers for only 15-20 minutes a day
  • SAFE –  Tested by leading Universities in the U.S., Europe, and South America
  • QUALITY – The original, certified by the Inventor and made in the U.S.
  • SIMPLE – Almost always Non-Extraction treatment
  • CLEAN – possibly less decay around brackets due to short treatment duration
