Straighten your smile and align your bite with orthodontics
No longer solely the domain of teenagers, orthodontics can dramatically transform your smile at any age. With the range of modern orthodontic treatment options available, you can choose a system that fits your smile and your lifestyle.
Modern orthodontic treatment options
Traditional dental braces remain a great treatment option for many people, but there are also many modern orthodontic treatment options that can be highly valuable for image-conscious adults. Some of these highly effective alternative treatments include:
This is a virtually invisible treatment and a lifestyle-friendly way to straighten your smile. The great thing about clear aligners is they can be removed when eating, maintaining your oral hygiene routine and for special occasions.
Lingual braces work on the same principle as traditional braces, with one exception – they are placed on the inner side of your teeth! This means that you can experience a highly effective orthodontic treatment that is virtually undetectable to anyone but you and your orthodontist!
Why straighten my smile?
Straightening your smile does not only offer aesthetic benefits, it can also correct a poor bite that if left untreated can lead to a range of issues including:
- Fractured teeth
- Tooth grinding
- Facial pain
- Gum disease
- Poor development of the jaw and facial structure
It is important to have your teeth fully assessed and cleaned prior to assessment and orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment is best provided for our patients by reputable local orthodontists and is often carried out in conjunction with other dental treatment provided by our clinic, such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns and implants.
At our Melbourne dental clinic, we work closely with local orthodontists to achieve stellar results.
