Dental Braces

Appearance is important to all of us, and a healthy, beautiful smile is something that can give us greater confidence. But what many people don’t realise is that straightening your smile with dental braces can contribute not only to the cosmetic aspects of your appearance, but to your oral health as well.

A consultation with an appropriately qualified professional will reveal that correcting misaligned teeth can improve your oral hygiene and lead to better overall oral health, give you a more functional bite, and reduce the risk of the development of TMD. At East Bentleigh Dental Group, we offer a wide range of traditional orthodontic braces and alternatives, including Invisalign and invisible lingual braces. Our orthodontic team can help you achieve a smile that you’re proud of.

Which Braces Are Right for Me?

Determining which types of braces are right for you can involve a number of factors. Our dentists will consider the type of issue that needs correcting as well as your budget and style preferences before advising you on which options may be best suited to you.

How Long Will I Have to Wear Braces For?

The length of time you have to wear dental braces for can vary depending on the severity of the problem and other factors such as age. Typically, braces are worn for 1 to 2 years, but as everyone’s mouths are unique, this period may be shorter or longer. Your dentist will be able to provide you with an accurate estimate in your initial consultation.

Do Braces Hurt?

While braces can cause some discomfort as the teeth shift into their correct position over time, they shouldn’t cause pain. If you’re worried about experiencing pain while wearing dental braces, our dentists are happy to discuss your concerns and put your mind at ease.
