Orthodontics – What Are My Options?
These days you may not be aware, but it is increasingly common to find many adults taking advantage of orthodontic (teeth straightening) in Adelaide. Gone are the days where the straightening teeth meant a mouthful of metal. Orthodontic technology has come a long way. Today, you have options like Invisalign® Clear Aligners.
So, if you are embarrassed about your smile or your crooked teeth prevent you from living your best life, why not request a free consultation with Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry in the heart of the trendy Hyde Park shops today?
Why People Get Teeth Straightening as an Adult?
Perhaps as a teenager, straightening your teeth or correcting your bite was not possible, so you continue to experience problems such as:
- Jaw clicking when yawning, eating or talking
- Difficulty chewing food
- Unintentionally bite the inside of your cheek
- Embarrassment in public or avoidance of having photos taken or smiling in public
It is not uncommon for us to treat patients who may have had some form of orthodontic treatment as a teenager, but they continue to have concerns about their teeth or smile for whatever reason.
Nearly Invisible Clear Aligners for Teenage
The length and type of braces will depend on your teeth and jaw problems – Invisalign® Clear Aligners for less severe treatments requiring less than six months to more comprehensive orthodontic realignment using Invisalign® Full Clear Aligners.
If your dentist assesses that your teen is a suitable candidate for invisible braces, it can be a particularly appealing option if they are very self-conscious regarding their appearance. Of course, when you are older, you tend to care less about what people think. But if you can cast your mind back to what it was like to be a teen, needing traditional metal braces can feel like the end of the world dominated by Instagram. Invisible braces for teens can make the experience a little less dramatic.
Why we use Invisalign® Clear Aligners
It is exciting to see how far this digital scanning and clear aligner technology has come – imagine having clear braces without any wires! Well, that’s exactly what Invisalign® Clear Aligners treatment is. Unlikely unsightly traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and require you to wear a sequence of customised transparent aligners that help move your teeth into the proper position.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners are most suitable for patients with minor dental crowding and spacing with treatment typically less than six months!
At Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry, we will routinely use Invisalign® Clear Aligners to correct minor smile improvements or in conjunction with other cosmetic dental procedures, such as high-quality, natural-looking porcelain dental veneers, laser gum lifts, and/or teeth whitening as part of a more comprehensive ‘Smile Makeover’ solution.
