What Are the Signs that Orthodontics May be Necessary?
Some of the signs that may indicate orthodontic treatment is required include:
- Large gaps between the teeth
- Crooked teeth caused by crowding
- Overbite (overlap of the front teeth)
- Underbite (upper front teeth are behind lower front teeth)
If you’re concerned about any of the above, it’s recommended that you seek advice from a dentist to determine if orthodontic treatment may be necessary.
What Treatments Are Available?
There are a number of orthodontic solutions to choose from, ranging from early orthodontic treatment through to traditional braces. Discuss your concerns with our orthodontic team to evaluate the different treatment options available for your unique situation.
Some of your available options may include:
Full orthodontics are a good choice for adolescents and adults requiring teeth straightening for aesthetic or medical reasons. Also known as traditional orthodontic braces, this orthodontic treatment involves the patient being fitted with metal braces that work to slowly reposition teeth over time. Metal braces cannot be removed by the patient and are usually worn for 1 to 2 years.
Invisalign and Invisible Braces
Invisible orthodontics are ideal for those who feel self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces. The most popular invisible braces option available is Invisalign, which works to straighten teeth using clear aligners that can be removed at any time. The aligners are regularly changed as the teeth change position, resulting in a straight smile at the end of treatment.
No Braces Solutions
In certain cases, alternatives to braces may be suitable. These ‘no braces’ orthodontic solutions involve wearing a removable plate or retainer to help the teeth shift into their correct position without the use of braces.
Other available orthodontic solutions include:
