Orthodontics Are Not Just For Kids Anymore

Happy, smiling young coupleNot every adult had the option to have orthodontics as a child, and some of those who did have had teeth shift out of alignment over time.

It is never too late for a straight, healthy smile, though many of our adults feel limited by unsightly brackets and wires.

If you are searching for an orthodontist with adult options, Chatswood Dental Associates may have the answers you need.

Clear Braces with Invisalign

For adults, metal or ceramic braces can have such a dramatic impact on daily life that it might deter you from seeking treatment. However, a misaligned bite leads to some oral health conditions that have an impact well into adult life. Misaligned teeth can wear unevenly, be more difficult to clean and even lead to jaw-related troubles that can feel painful.

Invisalign clear braces are nearly undetectable when you speak and smile. Since you remove them to eat, it’s far simpler to keep teeth clean and healthy. In addition, if you have a big work presentation or a social event on the horizon, you can remove them for a few hours without impacting the course of treatment. We do recommend, however, that you wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day to keep your treatment on track for success.

Traditional Braces for Adults

While Invisalign resolves most orthodontic conditions, if you have complex bite-related issues traditional braces might be required. Of course, we offer tooth-coloured, ceramic options to minimise the impact on the smile. Most of our adult patients who seek an orthodontist in Chatswood, NSW, wish they had opted for treatment sooner because of the many benefits of having straight teeth.

It’s easy to get started. Simply call our dental clinic on (02) 9412 4488 to arrange a booking with our dentist and take the first step toward a smile you feel great about and that feels comfortable.
