Orthodontics – They are not just for kids anymore
If you missed out on the opportunity to have braces as a child, or if you have suffered an orthodontic relapse with teeth that have shifted out of alignment over the years, LN Dental Centre may be able to help. At our Chester Hill, NSW clinic, we offer adult options for orthodontic treatment that can give you a straight, beautiful smile that might also be healthier.
Clear Aligner Braces
Because many adults are not comfortable with the idea of wearing traditional braces with unsightly brackets and wires for many months or even years, clear aligner braces might offer a welcome solution. At our clinic, we use Clear Correct invisible braces, which are nearly undetectable when you speak or smile.
Because the clear aligners are removable, you can take them out for eating and cleaning your teeth. You will experience no food restrictions with Clear Correct, and it will be easier to keep teeth clean and healthy. In addition, if you will be taking part in a social event or if you have an important work meeting, you can take out the aligners for a few hours without impacting your treatment. We do recommend, however, that you wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day to keep treatment on course.
Clear aligner braces work by gently nudging the teeth into the desired position with a series of aligners that you change out every few weeks. Busy adults appreciate the fact that treatment is usually shorter than with traditional braces—generally six to 18 months—and you need fewer trips to the dental clinic since there are no adjustments necessary.
Sometimes orthodontic conditions are too complex for clear aligner treatment, so we might recommend traditional braces. For patients who have bite-related issues, orthodontics can protect oral health by minimising the risk of undue wear on the teeth, chewing problems, and other jaw-related difficulties. We offer tooth-colored ceramic options, so they are barely noticeable.
Whatever your age, you can enjoy the benefits of having a straight, beautiful smile with orthodontics treatment at our Chester Hill, NSW clinic. It’s easy to get started. We welcome your call to book a consult.
