ControlledArch® Treatment System offers Orthodontic solutions for patients of all ages and all aspirations. From purely cosmetic outcomes to comprehensive Orthodontics, ControlledArch has it covered. ControlledArch Treatment options are designed to work with and not against nature, by simply assisting or reminding the body of the natural genetic intention of your facial development. This is approached through an understanding that as we go through childhood and become adults, we can often be confronted with environmental and behavioural circumstances that can conspire against the natural and intended growth and development of our face. Traditional Orthodontics can sometimes require unnecessarily invasive procedures for adolescents and young adults designed to simply deliver the patient straight teeth. This is often done with little or no regard for the impact this methodology can and does have on the overall appearance of the face. The underlying philosophy of all the ControlledArch techniques is to not just deliver straight teeth but also balanced faces and beautiful smiles. Full mouth braces are still regarded as the benchmark when it comes to achieveing straight teeth and the perfect bite. For most, the major downside of this therapy is and has always been the time it often takes to achieve the desired outcomes. The treatment time for this process can often tend to be a bit open ened given the unpredicable nature of tooth movement.
