The Tooth Company provides a full range of Orthodontic treatments for Kids and Adults.
All of the treatments are performed by our in house specialist Orthodontist Dr Shaz MacAvoy. The Tooth Company is one of the few dental practices in New Zealand where by general dentists work alongside specialists providing the most complete care available.
Orthodontics is a complex field of dentistry and is best performed by a specialist who has undergone full time specialised training.
Options available for straightening teeth are either Braces (Traditional/Clear/Invisible) or Invisalign (Clear Aligners).
Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment as they are so easy to use and are almost invisible. These are ideal for those who are in the public eye or who simply want to smile without braces showing.
At The Tooth Company we are proud to use the highest quality aligners available, Invisalign. Proven effective in clinical research and used in orthodontic clinics throughout the world, Invisalign clear aligners can give you that smile you’ve always dreamed of in a safe, aesthetic and proven way. Invisalign works through a series of a clear, removable and comfortable aligners that are very discreet.
A personalised Invisalign treatment plan will be created for you based on impressions taken by your specialist orthodontist. The impressions taken provide information that is used during your Invisalign treatment and also determine the number of aligners required for your specific orthodontic treatment.
Each Invisalign aligner is worn for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As each Invisalign aligner is replaced, gradual movement of the teeth occurs, resulting in a straighter smile.
You will be required to visit your specialist orthodontist at The Tooth Company every 4 to 6 weeks so that we can ensure all necessary movements are occurring.
