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.


An advanced generation of hidden braces that are attached to the back of the teeth, rather than the front like conventional braces. Incognito braces allow people to go about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious because their braces are virtually undetectable.

Suitable for all age groups - children, teenagers and adults – each bracket is custom made using the latest in digital technology to maximise comfort and results for each patient.
