Orthodontics for a straighter smile
Orthodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with the management of irregularities and abnormalities of the teeth, jaws and face. We are certainly seeing a definitive increase in teeth straightening enquiries at Centre for Dentistry.
More and more people are beginning orthodontic treatment. Not only can straighter teeth provide you with a more confident straighter smile, your oral health can be positively enhanced as well.
Orthodontic treatment is about making the best of your teeth – improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Once you can bite together correctly, you can eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily, and your smile will benefit greatly.
Orthodontic treatment has a range of benefits. It:
- Aligns your upper and lower teeth
- Corrects your bite so that your front teeth meet on closing and your back teeth mesh together
- Reduces your risk of potential damage to any prominent teeth
- Enhances your smile
- Accommodates any impacted, unerupted or displaced teeth you may have
- Prepares your teeth for advanced dental treatment, such as crowns, bridges or dental implants
- Reverses drifting of your teeth. Drifting can happen as you get older and/or if you have suffered from advanced gum disease.
Treatment advances now make it easier, quicker, more affordable and more discrete for adults who would like straighter teeth. Our experienced dentists and orthodontic specialists can assess for and fit cosmetic fixed braces, lingual discreet braces and removable, clear (near-invisible!) braces such as Invisalign.
Centre for Dentistry offers orthodontic treatment across our network of practices. Our orthodontic specialists can treat both adult and children’s teeth and, for milder adult cases, many of our dentists are trained in Six Month Smiles, a faster, more discrete way to achieve straighter teeth.
