Orthodontics (Braces)

Orthodontics (Braces) Ballarat

Through orthodontics we can change the position of your teeth in order to improve their alignment. This can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile and often improves self-esteem levels as a result. As well as giving you a more aesthetic smile, straightening your teeth can make it easier for you to maintain good oral hygiene. Aligning your teeth can also improve your ability to chew and will help to prevent your teeth from wearing unevenly. Although braces are commonly associated with teenagers, adults can also improve their smile with orthodontics. Straightening your teeth will have lifelong benefits for you smile, health and confidence.

Orthodontic treatment can assist with the following problems:
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Crowding of teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Alignment between top and bottom jaws
  • Protrusive or proclined teeth
  • Retruded or retroclined teeth
  • Management of extraction spaces
At Alfredton Dental we can help decide the best course of orthodontic treatment for you and advise when the treatment should be started. Options can include:
  • Removable appliances or “plates” – these can correct minor alignment problems and cross-bites
  • Sequential aligners – we support an Australian company called Tru-Line™ – minor crowding or spacing can be resolved with a series of practically invisible aligners
  • Braces – brackets are attached to the teeth and wires are used to move teeth into the desired position – can resolve most orthodontic problems
