tools of the trade


Some see straight teeth, we see confidence off the scale. At Total Orthodontics in Taranaki, we realise that technology is powerful and useful for creating world-class smiles. Today we use digital imaging to help us identify problems, explain findings and improve treatment outcomes. There are also a number of 'tools of the trade' that may be recommended as part of your treatment plan.

Correction Springs

Powerscope and Forsus Springs are used to correct bite alignment, overjet, overbite, missing tooth spaces and to align centerlines. They are easy to wear and often allow for greatly reduced treatment times without the need to extract any teeth.
