Why our families keep coming back.

See our results for yourself. We have a purpose built four chair facility that allows Dr Tait to see every patient on every visit.

DSCF3048first

Issues: Significant deviation in dental midline associated with an anterior cross-bite and crowding.

Treatment: Corrected midline, alignment and crowding. Removed one tooth. Upper and lower braces for 19 months followed by night time wear of upper and lower removable retainers was required.


Issues: Dental crowding, especially in the lower, midline discrepancy and alignment issues.

Issues: Adult male with large underbite, and crowding of bottom and front teeth.

Treatment: 8 months of alignment with braces, followed by jaw surgery to move upper jaw forward and lower jaw back which provided a life changing improvement in facial appearance.


Issues: “Buck teeth” from an increased horizontal and vertical overlap of top and bottom front teeth.

Treatment: A two piece removable appliance for 12 months, followed by fixed braces for 8 months to fine tune alignment and bite. No teeth removed.

Issues: Large space between front teeth due to two missing teeth from patient being born without permanent lateral incisors. Front teeth have moved sideways to occupy space where missing teeth should be.

Treatment: Fixed braces. Part plate with artificial lateral incisors. Future treatment will provide implants or adhesive bridges.

third

Issues: Increased vertical overlap of top and bottom front teeth which gives an increased overbite, crowding and a bite problem. If left unchecked overbite could lead to longer term gum damage.

Treatment: Over 24 months combination of removable plate to correct vertical overlap, fixed braces and elastic bands.
