Teeth Straightening Elsternwick
Straighter Teeth Within Six Months - A Posibility!
There are now new techniques for teeth straightening that are focused
on just improving the appearance of the front teeth. This treatment takes much less time than conventional teeth straightening methods (about 24 months). It is suited for those who are interested in only improving the appearance of their smile and have mild to moderate crowding in their mouth.
Crowded teeth are not only unaesthetic but can encourage plaque accumulation, which can lead to tooth decay and increase chance of gum disease.
Before Dr Geeta Perks, dentist in Elsternwick, offers her patients:
The advantages of these techniques are designed to that they are designed to avoid conventional braces or at the very least to make them cosmetically acceptable.
Dr Geeta Perks, dentist in Elsternwick, uses these techniques to correct alignment issues with the “social six”: the front teeth, which influence the smile most.
The treatment can also level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
Latest technology used
Dr Geeta, cosmetic dentist Elsternwick, offers her patients clear aligner systems such as Clear Correct and Invisalign, to help straighten their teeth. Clear aligners are a custom fit for your mouth and are transparent and discreet, allowing you to smile without most people noticing them whilst you are having the treatment. They can be removed easily for eating and cleaning. Clear aligners have no wires that trap food and so do not interfere with oral hygiene, unlike conventional braces.
Dr Geeta also offers her patients an alternative to the clear aligner system with the latest Cfast technology which uses clear 3D printed orthodontic brackets and tooth-colored nickel-titanium wires. The wires and brackets are barely noticable. The lightweight wires put gentle pressure on the brackets to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient. The gums follow this movement to achieve an aesthetic outcome.
Am I suitable?
Invisalign, Clear Correct and Cfast may be suitable for adults who are don't wish to have the embarrassment of having conventional metal braces in their mouth for social reasons.
