Braces | LightForce Provider in Sydney | The Ortho Practice


At The Ortho Practice, we keep up with the latest technology to ensure your treatment is as comfortable and effective as possible. Our modern brace options are more accurate and discreet than ever before and can help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted.

How do braces work?

Braces use a system of small brackets attached to the front of each tooth, a metal archwire running through them, and tiny elastics to hold it all in place. We can use this system to place targeted pressure on your teeth and move them into proper alignment.

You will visit our practice for regular adjustments over the course of treatment. Your Specialist Orthodontist will make small bends in your archwire that place gentle pressure on specific teeth. This will slowly move your teeth into the desired positions.

Types of braces

At The Ortho Practice, we have a brace option for everyone. These include:

3M metal braces

Braces have come a long way from the clunky, traditional braces of the past. 3M metal brackets are extremely small and low profile, so they are more comfortable and discreet to wear. 3M metal braces are designed to match the curve of your teeth for a durable and reliable fit.

3M Clarity braces

3M Clarity brackets are made from translucent ceramic that helps them to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth when you smile. This makes them a great option for people who don’t want their orthodontic treatment on full display.

LightForce 3D braces

LightForce braces are the world’s first 3D-printed custom brackets. The shape, size, and colour of LightForce braces can be adjusted to suit your exact prescription, making them more effective, accurate, and discreet.

Benefits of braces

Braces are a wonderful option for patients of all ages because they are:

  • Effective: Fixed braces can be used to treat even complex orthodontic cases. They also tend to shape your smile faster than aligners.
  • Accurate: We can customise your treatment to suit your exact smile, which lends for precise results.
  • Discreet: You can opt for clear ceramic brackets to help your treatment blend in with your smile.
  • Affordable: Fixed braces are one of the most budget-friendly orthodontic options.
