When a smile is everyone’s greatest asset, overcrowding or wide spaces between teeth can sometimes take that away. Moreover, it causes difficulty when brushing, which can lead to swollen, bleeding gums and even decay.

Fortunately, Family Dental Centre offers an array of orthodontic solutions for individuals looking to close gaps, align crooked and correct crowding. Our dental clinics across Singapore provide clear aligner, metal and ceramic braces treatments catered to your unique condition. We correct your teeth and bring out your megawatt smile with your choice of metal or ceramic braces, as well as Invisalign®, a system that uses virtually “invisible” clear aligners. Whether you’re a student in Singapore or a working professional, our braces treatments are affordable, efficient and customisable – and will make you beam.


Wearing braces is an effective, proven way of achieving a more beautiful smile that boosts your confidence through straightening crooked or overcrowded teeth. But apart from aesthetic improvements, braces also offer long-term health benefits:

  • Prevents tooth problems and gum diseases: Teeth straightening reduces the hidden pockets between teeth. This makes it easier to clean your teeth thoroughly, reducing plaque buildup and minimising the possibility of tooth decay and gum diseases.

  • Increases comfort: Braces eliminate the pressure and discomfort caused by misaligned teeth. Fixing your jaws with braces also addresses teeth-grinding and its accompanying problems like headaches and facial pain.

  • Helps with speech difficulties and prevents jaw disorders: By receiving braces treatment in Singapore, it sets your teeth and jaw back in the right position, overcoming speech clarity issues and avoiding painful jaw disorders.

Looking for an Orthodontics Specialist?

Orthodontists and general dentists have similarities as they both focus on oral care. Orthodontics is one of the nine specialisations within dentistry. Orthodontists are specially trained to diagnose and treat crooked teeth, bad bites, and poorly aligned jaws that range from simple dental malalignment to conditions requiring a combination of braces and jaw surgery. General dentists usually refer patients with more complex issues to Orthodontic specialists.

Proper dental health among children is a growing concern for parents in Singapore since it affects overall health and well-being. Early orthodontic treatment can correct jaw deficiencies and bite problems since the child’s body and bones are still developing.


Orthodontists are dental specialists trained to treat dental and facial irregularities. Treatments include:

Meet Our Orthodontists


Usually 1 – 2.5 years, but it varies by case. It is essential that your clinic appointments in Singapore are always kept. Retainers are fitted to hold teeth in their new positions after the braces are removed, and if these are not worn, your teeth may slip back.

After receiving treatment at a clinic in Singapore, your teeth may be tender for the first few days, but this will disappear after you grow accustomed to your braces. Taking a mild painkiller may help.

Use a small head orthodontic toothbrush to brush your teeth thoroughly, and use mouthwash at night. It is vital to maintain good oral hygiene, and regular 6-monthly cleaning is required during treatment.

Avoid chewy or hard food, as these may break and bend the wires of your braces or dislodge the brackets. Sweets, mints and sugary or fizzy drinks may also dissolve the enamel. Your dentist in Singapore will provide further advice during your treatment.

If something becomes loose or broken, please call your chosen clinic in Singapore immediately for an appointment. This is because a broken wire or braces can cause teeth to move in the wrong direction and prolong treatment time.

The cost of metal braces treatment for students starts from S$3,500, while ceramic braces start from S$4,300. Meanwhile, the fees for adults starts from S$4,300 and S$4,800, respectively. The dentist at our Singapore clinic will advise on the cost of your braces treatment after assessing your condition.

Ceramic and metal braces come with their pros and cons as follows:

  • Aesthetics: Ceramic braces can be transparent or tooth-coloured, making them less visible and more ideal for working adults who need to be mindful of their appearance.

  • Durability and care: Ceramic braces are less strong and more prone to staining. In this regard, they are more suitable for individuals who can limit their intake of food that stains their teeth, practise good oral hygiene and care for their braces.

  • Duration: Ceramic braces typically take 12 to 36 months, while metal braces take about 20 months. Thus, metal braces are ideal if you seek quick correction.

  • Cost: As ceramic braces are made from a costlier material, metal braces are more affordable for students in Singapore or individuals with smaller budgets.
