Who Are Braces For?

Braces are perfect for anyone looking to straighten their teeth. They offer predictable outcomes and are particularly ideal for teenagers and adults who might not find Invisalign treatment suitable.

Advantages of Braces

Braces offer several benefits. They are permanently fixed onto your teeth, eliminating the need to remember to wear them. Plus, braces help build dental confidence over time, especially in nervous patients, as you’ll see the same person for a similar procedure each time.

Moreover, orthodontics creates beautiful smiles with a minimal biological cost – you’re not removing valuable tooth enamel; it’s your natural teeth. After finishing treatment, there is minimal maintenance apart from checking retainer at your regular dental examination appointments, providing you with a hassle-free, beautiful smile.

Our team will guide you throughout your journey, from the first consultation right through to follow-ups. Our process includes the following:

  • Treatment planning
  • X-ray referrals
  • Orthodontic record taking
  • Application of brackets (band up)
  • Regular wire adjustments
  • Fitting fixed and removable retainers

Rest assured, you’ll work with the same experienced clinician throughout your treatment. For complex cases, we also provide referrals to specialist orthodontists.

Braces treatment typically takes around 18 months, with adjustments every four to eight weeks. While initial appointments and brace fittings last 90 minutes, adjustment visits are less time-intensive at just 30 minutes each.

Remember to maintain good oral health before, during, and after your orthodontic treatment.

Both clear and metal brackets function similarly, thanks to the use of Damon brackets, but they present unique advantages depending on the patient’s circumstances and preferences.

Clear brackets are ideal for those seeking less conspicuous treatment, like self-conscious teenagers or working adults who wish to maintain a professional appearance. Even though they are slightly larger than metal brackets, their size doesn’t impact the duration of treatment. However, these braces come at a premium, costing about three to five hundred dollars more than their metallic counterparts.

On the other hand, metal braces offer personalisation and comfort. Various colours can be added allowing kids to add a playful touch to their orthodontic experience. Notably, metal braces are reported to be the more comfortable choice despite their less appealing look.

Does Insurance Cover Braces?

Depending on your level of health, cover and your individual policy, some health funds will cover a portion of orthodontic treatment.
