Teeth Straightening

Straighten your smile at our local West Pymble Dental practice

Orthodontic treatments, such as traditional braces and clear aligners (e.g. Invisalign), are designed to correct crowded or crooked teeth. Whilst many think this is just for aesthetics purposes, correcting crooked or crowded teeth can improve your oral health. Teeth may also need to be straightened to allow other treatments, such as crowns & dental implants, to be carried out successfully.

Our local West Pymble dentists are experienced at identifying crowded and crooked teeth that require orthodontic or teeth straightening treatments. Book a teeth straightening consultation with your local West Pymble dentist today. 

Teeth Straightening Options

Braces

Metal brackets and wires, there are a range of different braces options available

Lingual Braces

Similar to the traditional metal braces, except the brackets and wires are placed on the inside surface of the teeth so that they are not visible

Ceramic Braces

Similar to the metal braces, except they are tooth-coloured or clear brackets that are less noticeable

Invisalign® (Invisible Braces)

Invisalign® treatment uses a series of clear plastic removable orthodontic aligners that gently move your teeth. The aligners are replaced every 2 weeks.

Not everyone is suited for teeth straightening treatment. Before proceeding you should seek advice from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Availability of listed treatment options may vary. Please contact the practice for more details.

Why should I straighten my teeth?

Over the years, modern and digital technology has revolutionised the way your dentist or specialist orthodontist can straighten your teeth.

Apart from making your teeth look great, there are also important functional reasons for straightening teeth:

 

  • Crowded and crooked teeth are hard to clean which can, in turn, cause a range of problems in the future

  • Teeth that are very prominent can be more at risk from traumatic injuries. Orthodontics can move teeth into an ideal position in relation to the lips, to better protect them and improve the facial profile.

  • Jaws and teeth that are incorrect alignment function better and individual teeth are not subject to excessive biting forces.
