Invisible Hidden Braces

These braces are attached to the tongue side of your teeth and are invisible on smiling. They are custom made for each individual.  There are a variety of lingual braces available that vary from gold to silver in colour.




Invisalign® involves a series of removable clear plastic plates that are programmed to move teeth. They are virtually invisible on smiling.



Orthopaedic appliances

These are used in growing patients that have an imbalance between their upper and lower jaw and facial profile. These appliances are used to influence the pattern of jaw and facial growth and achieve facial balance. These appliances may be removable or fixed to the teeth.



Expansion Appliances

These appliances are used to widen narrow upper jaws and correct crossbites, or create space to alleviate crowded teeth. They are commonly used in growing patients alone or as part of an orthopaedic appliance. They may be also used by adults that require jaw surgery.



Skeletal Anchorage Systems

This is one of the latest developments in orthodontics and is available at Smile Hawthorn to treat a broader range of dental and jaw problems in an efficient and predictable manner.
