Specialists in Orthodontics in Brisbane and Gold Coast
A beautiful smile is a great asset and teeth straightening is about improving the harmony between your mouth and jaws. Teeth straightening isn’t just for children; with modern techniques, many adults are now undergoing treatment as well.
Teeth straightening techniques and appliances are constantly changing and being improved, and we make sure we keep completely up-to-date so we can offer our patients the best possible treatment.
Thanks to today’s technology, patients now have more options when it comes to wearing braces. Most adults would prefer to be able to have orthodontic treatment without any aesthetic impairment and hence want to fulfill their treatment goals with an appliance that is invisible. While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces and Fastbraces are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances such as ClearCorrect that can be used for mild cases of misaligned teeth.
Benefits of Orthodontics
Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to brush and floss. This will allow you to maintain your oral health much easier.
When should orthodontic treatment start
Orthodontic treatment can be started at any age. It’s best for the orthodontist to see children by age six or seven. By this age, we generally see, first adult molars erupt, establishing the bite of the back teeth. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but a thorough examination can determine the most advantageous time to begin treatment. However, if you have missed the recommended age, don’t worry. It is never too late to start on the way to your new smile!
