Why Are Orthodontics Important
If you have crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or misaligned teeth or bite, it can cause dental or jaw problems over time.
Crowded teeth often with misaligned jaws can sometimes be involved with upper airway constrictions, increasing the risk of sleep apnoea. This is why our approach to orthodontics takes into account correct breathing patterns, and the quality of your sleep as well as straight teeth.
We usually have a focus on extraction-free teeth straightening. This can be applied for adults and children in most cases.
Orthodontics Is Time Sensitive
Our conventional braces option is great for patients of all ages and timing does matter for braces and we suggest to commence treatment around the age of 13-15 as children have all permanent teeth erupted plus are still growing to achieve great results and are old enough to maintain good oral hygiene.
With orthodontics, results can be achieved using an alternative of clear aligners.
Braces are metal attachments that are placed on your teeth by your dentist according your prescription. Your dentist will get you back for regular ongoing appointments to change your bands and wires.
Clear aligners are clear trays worn for 2 weeks between appointments for teeth straightening without anyone seeing you wear braces.
They can be removed when eating and drinking, usually painfree.
Their versatility makes them easy to clean and you won’t have to change up your oral hygiene routine; just brush and floss each day like normal.
How to Get Started
Book an appointment with your dentist where a thorough examination is performed. A full mouth scan (OPG) and photos will be taken to assess your suitability for braces. If braces is not the appropriate solution, your dentist will provide other treatment options to achieve your smile goals.
We offer interest-free payment plans – with no credit checks, starting at as little as $40 per week.
Care and Maintenance
Oral hygiene is extremely important for people in braces. Since there are extra places for food and plaque to adhere to, you’ll want to take your time as you brush twice a day and see your dentist regularly for check-up and cleans.
