Hello

Dr Joseph Antoun's Signature

And welcome to our specialist orthodontic practice, located in the south-west of Christchurch. We offer a wide range of orthodontic services in a warm, friendly and professional atmosphere. Our range of affordable treatments include metal and clear braces, removable and functional appliances, and retainers. We are also certified providers of Invisalign.

We take a patient-focused approach to orthodontic treatment, which means that we are here to listen to your concerns, provide professional advice, and deliver high quality orthodontic treatment that is based on the latest scientific evidence and proven technologies.

 Finally, we believe that a beautiful smile is not something that only few should have. That's not to say that everyone needs braces, or even the same kind of treatment. We are all different. That's why we firmly believe that every treatment should be tailored to each person's clinical situation, lifestyle and budget - there is only one constant in every treatment we deliver and that's about making a difference!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Enjoyable Treatment Journey

 STEP 1

 FIRST VISIT

 

Our consultation appointments range between 30 to 45 minutes and are designed to understand your concerns, and carry out a comprehensive clinical assessment of the teeth, jaws and bite. Depending on a patient's age and dental status, we may either recommend further reviews or starting treatment now.

 STEP 2

 SECOND VISIT

 If treatment is indicated, a second appointment (approx. 30 minutes) will be organised to collect important treatment records such as high resolution clinical photos, and accurate 3D digital study casts of the teeth. These records allow us to make a detailed analysis of the teeth and bite, and make a recommendation about the best treatment option for you.
 STEP 3

 GETTING STARTED

 Once we've finalised the plan, we will go through all the records with you on a large computer display and explain the entire treatment process. Treatment can start soon afterwards - placing braces or Invsialign takes approximately 60-90 minutes, while fitting a plate is usually 15 minutes long.

TYPES OF BRACES

A Wide Range of Choices

BE COLOURFUL

Metal Braces

Our range of metal braces (silver or gold) are particularly common among younger patients who enjoy the colorful rings which are placed over the brackets and wire. Our metal braces also happen to have the smallest footprint of the entire range, which helps facilitate good oral hygiene in younger patients.

BE DISCRETE

CERAMIC BRACES

Ceramic (or clear) brackets offer the ultimate aesthetic solution for those requiring fixed braces to correct their orthodontic problems, providing complete tooth control without the fuss! Ceramic braces are a popular choice among teenage and adult patients because of their discreteness.

BE INVISIBLE

INVISALIGN

Invsialign is the clear alternative to those not wanting fixed braces. This appliance has no metal components and is completely removable, making it our most aesthetic appliance available. For many adult patients, the flexibility and near invisible nature of the appliance makes it their ideal choice.
