Braces in Sutherland Shire – Straighten Your Teeth Using Modern Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry which deals specifically with teeth that are not properly positioned. While most people are driven to get braces in Sutherland Shire to improve the aesthetics of their smile, the function of orthodontics is primarily to adjust a patient’s bite and assist them in maintaining a good standard of oral health. Failure to correct misaligned teeth can lead to a patient suffering from tooth decay, difficulties in chewing, and even jaw and head pain.

At Southern Smiles, our friendly experienced dentists are committed to offering orthodontics by means of braces which are tailored to your unique dental requirements, budget, and lifestyle.

You’re Never Too Old For Braces

Dental braces are devices used in orthodontics to gently straighten out teeth and coax them
into the right position. All types of braces work in the same way by applying constant, gentle pressure on the teeth, thus moving them to where they need to be. Regular tightening of the wires by your Sutherland Shire dentist applies more pressure to your teeth so they continue to move until eventually, they reach the desired position.

People mistakenly associate braces with kids but since the mechanical process of moving teeth is the same whatever your age, you may be surprised to learn that braces for adults are more commonplace than you might think.

What Types Of Braces Are Available And What Is Right for Me?

Few people are fortunate enough to be born with perfect teeth so isn’t it good to know that orthodontics can make a huge difference to both you or your child? Since everyone is different and no mouth is the same, our dentist will discuss the best braces options to help correct your particular problem. Our fixed braces include:

Traditional metal braces

Traditional braces weren’t always favourably received but nowadays they’re lighter in weight and less visible than they once were. They’re fashioned from high-grade stainless steel with metal brackets that are cemented onto each tooth. A thin wire runs through the brackets and this is what applies the pressure to the teeth to move them.

Ceramic Braces

These work in the same way as traditional braces but utilise clear ceramic brackets sometimes in conjunction with tooth coloured wire. As a result, they’re more popular with those seeking a more discreet type of brace. Because of their design, ceramic braces are usually used for less complex cases.

Another popular option in orthodontics nowadays is clear removable aligners. These fit over the teeth a little like a mouthguard and are removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth. They’re normally replaced with a new set every 2 weeks during the entire treatment. You can find out more about them on our clear aligners page.

The Initial Consultation

During an initial consultation, you and your Sutherland Shire dentist will discuss your current dental situation and what to expect when you get braces. After assessing your smile the dentist will take X-rays and moulds of your teeth.

Having looked at the images of your teeth and formulated a treatment plan, your orthodontics options will be discussed. Sometimes it may be necessary to remove a few permanent teeth to make room for your newly straightened teeth. Once the most effective type of brace has been decided upon, any preparation work will be carried out before getting braces put on. From here, you’ll need to attend regular appointments to check your progress and tighten your brace.
