Orthodontic treatments focus on correcting the position of your teeth and the alignment of your jaws. The treatment moves your teeth into their proper positions to improve your bite, and helps correct any irregularities that are in your jaws as a result. A better smile after orthodontic treatment is an added bonus.
An incorrect bite should be treated as soon as possible because it can cause long-term oral health risks which may includes head and jaw pain. Straightening your teeth can help prevent the development of tooth decay and periodontal disease, as straighter teeth are easier to clean.
How to Determine if you require an Orthodontic Treatment
See your dentist if you notice or experience the following:
- Early or late loss of primary (baby) teeth
- Trouble in chewing or biting
- Speech problems
- Facial Imbalance
- Teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism)
- Biting your cheeks or the roof of your mouth
- Jaw problems such as shifting or clicking sounds from the joint
Our Orthodontic Treatments
Invisalign is a modern approach to straightening teeth. It is an alternative to metal braces. Invisalign helps patients correct a broad range of orthodontic problems and the treatment has been proven to be safe and highly effective.
This type of traditional brace uses stainless steel brackets, which gives the patient a “train track” look. Today, these visible brackets are made much smaller, making them less noticeable than the metal braces in the past. Metal braces are now more comfortable to wear than before.
If you want an orthodontic brace that will closely match the colour of your teeth, you can consider porcelain braces. They consist of tooth-coloured brackets and blend in with the natural shade of your teeth. Most adults prefer porcelain braces because of the colour and the way it makes them less self-conscious during the treatment.
