Benefits of Straight Teeth

Having straight, properly aligned teeth often means a healthier smile. Overlapping, crowded teeth are more difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. This can lead to a higher risk of tooth decay and cavities. Additionally, a misaligned bite can place uneven force on the teeth and jaws, leading to cracks, fractures and wear patterns on the teeth.

And of course, one of the biggest motivators to straighten teeth is having a beautiful smile!

What Is Orthodontics?

  • What Is Orthodontics?

    Orthodontics is a specialty field of dentistry focused on the alignment of crooked teeth and correcting bite issues. Some of these issues include overbite, underbite, crossbite, malocclusion (teeth not coming together properly) and protrusion. Teeth alignment can also include cosmetic improvements to the shape of the smile and the facial profile, or to improve the smile line.
  • Many patients opt to use orthodontic treatments to achieve a better smile and improve teeth functionality. Regardless of the treatment of choice, the result will greatly enhance your dental health and overall appearance.

    The duration of orthodontics in Sydney is highly dependent on several factors, including:

    • Current teeth configuration
    • Complexity of the alignment issue
    • Choice of clear aligners, cosmetic braces or traditional braces
    • Individual compliance with the recommended treatment

    An average treatment takes between 6-24 months to complete. However, the results can last a lifetime, if you follow the instructions of your orthodontist.

      Traditional metal braces are a reliable method of moving teeth into proper alignment and may be the ideal solution for complex treatments. Metal brackets attach an adjustable wire to the teeth, and regular adjustments to that wire will guide the teeth into alignment.

    Retainer use is part of orthodontic treatment. Failure to comply with retainer use can lead to orthodontic relapse, a condition in which your teeth tend to drift back to their original positions. At A Better Smile Dental Centre, we offer orthodontic retainer options that make compliance a breeze. We are happy to discuss which option will work best for you.
