Set things straight with modern dental braces in Canley Heights!

Braces are wire-based dental appliances that are used to properly align your teeth and jaws to produce an even bite and pleasing smile. Many people who need braces get them during their early teens, but adults also can benefit from wearing braces.

For minor corrections, a series of custom-made, removable appliances called clear aligners or “invisible braces” can be used. Modern materials and technology make the experience of having dental braces much more comfortable than in the past.

Treatable Cases

Dental braces offer corrective treatment for:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite or overjet
  • Underbite
  • Other alignment problems that cause an irregular bite

Teeth and jaws that are aligned properly may enhance not only the look of your teeth but also the health of your mouth and the way you bite, chew, and speak.

Benefits of Orthodontics

Going to the dentist for check-ups can be very difficult for many of us. And for some, wearing braces can be a further daunting experience.

But braces are meant for straightening out your teeth and give you more confidence and self-esteem. Actually, they have several other benefits as well.

Types of Braces

Nowadays, orthodontics offers more choices for braces. Check out your options below:

Z Conventional Braces

These are the braces with metal brackets and wires that most people think of when they hear “braces”.

However, modern brackets are smaller and less obvious than the “metal-mouth” braces that many of us remember.

Plus, new heat-activated archwires utilise body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past.

Z Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces have the same sizes and shapes as standard metal braces, except that the brackets are clear or tooth-coloured to blend in with white teeth. Some even use tooth-coloured archwires to be less obvious.

Z Invisalign®

Invisalign® treatment requires wearing a series of 18 to 30 custom-made, mouthguard-like virtually invisible plastic aligners. These aligners are removable and are replaced every two weeks.

How Braces Move Teeth

Dental braces move your teeth by applying constant pressure on them for an extended period of time.

We tend to think of our teeth as being connected to our jawbone, making it harder to consider how they can be moved to the right position.

But underneath your gums is a membrane surrounded by your bones, that attaches your teeth to your jaw. This membrane controls the location of your teeth, and it adapts to the pressure being put on your teeth by braces.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the right age to get braces?
Patients with orthodontic problems can benefit from treatment nearly any age. An ideal time for placement of braces between 10-14 years of age, while the head and the mouth are still growing, and the teeth are more conducive to straightening the teeth in a healthy way.
How fast do teeth move with braces?
You may feel some soreness in your mouth in the first few days after the treatment as your teeth, and jaw gets used to this new pressure.

Once the process is in place, it takes about three months to grow new bone, and then generally 1-3 years fully stabilise.

Do braces hurt?
Installing braces doesn’t hurt during the appointment, and it takes between one to two hours for them to be installed. You may feel discomfort for the first week as you adjust.

Every time your braces are adjusted by your Canley Heights dentist, you may also be sore for a few days, but after that, you will achieve the look that you wanted.
