Braces Melbourne

Braces are appliances that attach to the teeth, providing a ‘handle’ with which the orthodontist can use to move the teeth.

These appliances can consist of brackets, molar bands, and wires.

Brackets are the silver or tooth coloured squares attached to the front surface of the teeth.

Wires are placed in the slots of the brackets and provide a gentle force which will encourage movement of the teeth.

Suresmile Braces


This treatment method can be used for both lingual (inside surface) and labial (outer surface) braces. Based in America, suresmile apply a modern approach to orthodontics that consists of using computer technology and robotic machinery to fabricate  a treatment plan that will improve the appearance and function of your smile.

The team at South East Orthodontics is highly experienced when it comes to utilising the suresmile system, having used the system since its initial development.

The above photographs show two images of conventional braces that we provide. On the left are traditional twin brackets which require small coloured rubber bands that keep the wire engaged in the bracket (called modules). Modules are changed at each visit, so a different colour can be used each time. The image on the right are clear traditional twin brackets which require clear modules.

Depending on your orthodontic treatment, you may require a functional appliance to be used in conjunction with your braces.
