What is SureSmile?

Unlike traditional braces, SureSmile incorporates advanced 3D imaging, virtual simulations and customised robotically bent archwires to calculate, with precision, each step of your treatment plan.

Some of the benefits of SureSmile are greater ability for your dentist to plan and design your individual treatment plan, step by step
Reduced treatment time (30% less time on average - varies case to case)

Here at Northside Orthodontics we offer both high-tech stainless steel braces and ceramic (clear) braces.

High-Tech Stainless Steel Braces

Stainless steel braces are the most common form of braces used by patients. This treatment compromises of small metal brackets, archwires and coloured o-rings (small rubber ring that holds the wire in place on the bracket). This orthodontic option gives you the ability to customise your look, choosing from a range of colour combinations (o-rings).

Ceramic Braces

Just like the stainless steel braces, ceramic/clear braces function in the same way and incorporate the same components (brackets, archwires and o-rings). The difference of the ceramic braces is the brackets are tooth-coloured and visually less noticeable.



Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of virtually invisible removable aligners to help straighten your teeth. Each aligner is custom made and is worn for roughly 2-3 weeks while it repositions the teeth into the desired position.

The innovative 3D imaging equipment and software behind Invisalign gives you the advantage of being able to see a virtual image of your desired smile. It additionally allows your dentist to plan out your treatment step-by-step, ensuring the maximum effect is achieved.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Straightening your teeth using Invisalign offers the benefits of:

  • Aligners are virtually invisible and are more aesthetically pleasing
  • Considered a more comfortable alternative compared to other forms of orthodontic treatments
  • Ability to eat and brush your teeth like normal - aligners are removable

To determine if Invisalign is an appropriate orthodontic treatment for you, please get in contact with our friendly team at Northside Orthodontics.


Incognito Lingual Braces

What is Incognito Lingual Braces?

Incognito Lingual Braces are an advanced generation of braces that incorporates the state-of-the-art 3D computer technology to design and produce individual custom brackets. Unlike conventional braces, Incognito Lingual Braces fit to the backside of your teeth, keeping them discreetly hidden when you talk and smile.

What are the benefits of Incognito Lingual Braces?
