Orthodontics

Orthodontist BundooraIf you are not satisfied with the way your teeth look or function, you could benefit from orthodontic treatment. Overcrowded, crooked or protruding teeth can have a tremendous impact on your appearance and influence your susceptibility to gum disease and tooth decay. Here at Radiant Smiles Dental Group, we provide orthodontic treatment that involves altering the position of your teeth and improving their functionality and appearance.

Who Are Eligible For Orthodontic Treatment?

People with any of the following conditions are eligible for orthodontic treatment.

  • Overbite: Upper front teeth coming over the lower front teeth.
  • Underbite: Lower front teeth coming too forward.
  • Crossbite: Misalignment between your lower and upper teeth when biting together.
  • Open bite: Upper and lower teeth unable to make physical contact when the jaws are closed.
  • Spacing: Missing tooth leaving space
  • Crowding: Too many teeth crowding your mouth.

What Does The Treatment Involve?

We use varieties of fixed and removable appliances to properly line up your teeth. These devices apply a gentle pressure on the teeth and align them to their appropriate position. The properly aligned teeth provide you with several lifetime benefits such as

  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Healthier teeth and gums
  • Reduced wear and tear of your teeth
  • Ability to chew

Appliances Used In Orthodontics Treatment:

  • Braces: They consist of bands, brackets, and wires that are fixed around the teeth to gradually move them to the perfect position.
  • Fixed Space Maintainers: If a baby loses his/her tooth early, it is used to keep the space open.
  • Jaw Repositioning Appliances: These devices help bring the jaw in a more favourable position.
  • Invisalign: These aligners include a series of clear trays that help to straighten your teeth.

No matter how poorly your teeth are aligned, we can devise a perfect treatment that best suits your condition. If you need any dental consultation, feel free to call 03 94676112 and speak to our experts today.
