Orthodontic treatment for adults
The Straight Smile Centre™ can help you get the smile you have always wanted by offering aesthetic alternatives to conventional braces, such as ceramic braces, Invisalign™ aligners and Incognito™ hidden lingual braces. As long as you have healthy gums and jaw structure, you can have your teeth altered at any age.
At the Straight Smile Centre™, we aim to be on the cutting edge of orthodontic treatment to help provide you with the latest treatment options. We understand braces can be inconvenient for many adults which is why we offer a selection of treatments, from the more conventional braces to the Invisalign system. The new techniques and latest equipment we use greatly reduce discomfort levels and shorten the frequency of visits and treatment time.
Treatment duration for adults is actually comparable to that of teenagers. However, there are options to speed up treatment such as the use of Acceledent™, which can reduce overall treatment time by up to 50%!
Additional treatment options
Sometimes the goal of treatment is not cosmetic but rather to prepare the teeth for restorative work (e.g. upright teeth for bridges or implants). Using the latest technology, the team at the Straight Smile Centre™ can achieve your dentist’s requirement without putting braces/appliances on all of your teeth.
Other patients may require orthognathic surgery. This involves moving the jaws (by qualified oral surgeons) to place them in their ideal position, thereby straightening your teeth and improving your bite and facial aesthetics.
Benefits of adult treatment
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just to help improve your smile. There are major health concerns associated with crooked teeth and a poor bite. Gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain could all be prevented with the right orthodontic treatment. Recent research has also linked gum infections with an increased risk in systematic diseases such as cardiovascular conditions.
