First of all, what exactly is orthodontics
Orthodontics is the treatment of irregularities in the teeth and jaw. This includes bite problems, or badly positioned or crooked teeth, in conditions that range from mild to extreme. Here at Good Choice Dental in Burwood, we use a series of dental appliances, particularly dental braces and clear aligners to correct a wide variety of orthodontic problems. While many adolescents need orthodontic treatment, more and more adults are turning to corrective dental braces or aligners later in life.
So, how do dental braces and aligners straighten teeth?
Both conventional ‘bracket and wire style’ braces and clear aligners use gentle and targeted force to gradually move teeth into the desired position. However, while dental braces are permanently fixed to the teeth for the duration of your treatment, clear aligners are both disposable and easily removed. Whether you visit a specialist orthodontist in Burwood or an experienced dentist with an interest in orthodontics treatment, dental braces or aligners can help you to get your smile back on track.
Burwood orthodontics in NSW
Whether you seek orthodontics for functional or aesthetic reasons, our experienced team here at Burwood can help. In general, the treatment steps for orthodontics are.
Your treatment will always start with a consultation. Taking into account your needs and/or requirements – your chosen dentist can work out whether braces or aligner treatment is best for you.
It may be that you have a slightly crooked tooth in the smile line which spoils the look of your smile. In this case our dentist may recommend fast or accelerated braces treatments. Alternatively, if the problem is more one of function than aesthetics, then orthodontics treatment may extend to longer term dental braces. Either way, our patients can rest assured that we’ll find a workable solution for you.
The next step is an orthodontic evaluation, where we’ll take a series of x-rays, three-dimensional intra-oral images, and/or impressions. These records will then be sent to the laboratory where your bespoke dental braces are made.
For clear aligners, the fitting is easy. Your Burwood dentist will put the first one over your teeth and after giving you instructions for removal and replacement, the rest is up to you.
Bracket and wire style braces on the other hand are a little more tricky to fit, but once in place they stay for the duration. First the dentist will bond the brackets to your teeth, then the wires are threaded through. Finally, they’re adjusted for comfort. This process usually takes between 1-2 hours.
