Braces (Orthodontics)

Dental braces provide corrective treatment to help straighten and align your teeth.

What are braces?

Braces are a form of orthodontic treatment, which are devices used to help straighten and align your teeth or correct a misaligned bite. Braces work by putting continual pressure on each tooth to move them into the required position.

Chinchilla Dental Practice is dedicated to helping both children and adults achieve the sparkling smile that they deserve!

Do I need braces?

There are two main reasons you might want or need to get braces – functional or cosmetic. Braces can be used as a treatment option for several dental conditions where the teeth need to be realigned such as:

• Crooked teeth
• Overbite
• Underbite
• Crossbite
• Overcrowding • Spacing and gaps
• Misaligned jaw

Types of orthodontic treatments

There are a number of orthodontic treatment options available on the market today. With advances in modern dental technology, there have been a greta deal of improvements in braces over the year, meaning they are now more comfortable and effective than ever before. The biggest benefit to braces is that they are time-tested, they often create the best results and are generally very affordable when comparing to other orthodontic treatments!

Metal braces are also able to correct a wide range of orthodontic and dental concerns, which is why we believe they are often the very best option for our patients.

This can be a difficult question to answer as it can differ greatly, depending on the individual patient. The best way to find out how long your treatment will take is to come in and see us for a consultation.
