Did you know that you don’t have to go to a specialist orthodontist in Randwick for orthodontics treatment? But what exactly is orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment is a method of moving or straightening misaligned or crooked teeth to improve both appearance and function, and aside from specialist orthodontists in the Sydney CBD area, general dentists like us are also experienced in utilising modern and discreet braces in Sydney to help with a wide variety of dental problems. As well as aesthetics, orthodontic treatment in Randwick can also help with the long-term health of your teeth and gums by creating an even biting pressure over all of your teeth.

Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

Anyone who has severely crowded or crooked teeth can benefit from visiting an orthodontist in Randwick but rather than seeking out a specialist service, why not visit Randwick Smiles instead. Our friendly and experienced dentists offer a range of professional orthodontic services to straighten and move your teeth into a better position, giving you the beautiful straight smile that you’ve always longed for. While in some cases we may refer you to a specialist orthodontist in Randwick, our experienced team are able to solve a wide variety of orthodontic problems.

Some people suffer from protruding upper front teeth which look unsightly and may knock their confidence. These prominent teeth are also more at risk of damage. Perhaps your upper and lower teeth don’t meet together properly and this can cause an incorrect bite. Orthodontics can correct both of these problems.

Failing to address these problems can lead to more severe dental issues such as tooth decay, difficulty chewing, and even headaches and jaw strain. Our Randwick orthodontic treatment can help you bite and chew more easily and takes away any strain.

What Does Orthodontics Involve?

While orthodontic treatment is tailored to the exact dental needs of the patient, the goal always remains the same – to correct the aesthetics and function of the teeth as effectively and quickly as possible. Often orthodontics involves wearing braces.

Although orthodontic treatment is best in childhood, orthodontics for adults is just as effective and equally as important. In fact, in recent years, we’ve noticed a huge rise in adults considering orthodontics.

Orthodontic Braces and How they Work

Metal braces are still the most effective treatment for straightening crooked teeth but thankfully modern day versions are lighter in structure, smaller, faster, and more comfortable to wear. We currently provide patients with:

• Traditional braces – These are fashioned from high-grade stainless steel with metal brackets that are cemented in place on each tooth. Although they’re just as visible as they always were, they’re easier to clean and produce great results faster. In addition, when it comes to braces cost, Sydney patients will be pleased to know, that they’re also the cheapest option.

• Ceramic braces – A firm favourite with our adult and teenage patients, ceramic braces in Sydney boast a similar design to traditional braces but are less noticeable because of their transparent brackets and wiring. Although they’re more fragile they cause less irritation to the gums than traditional braces.

Treatment times vary according to your individual case and the type of orthodontic appliance being worn but usually they average between 18 – 24 months.

How Do Orthodontic Braces Work?

Orthodontic braces work by applying constant pressure to your teeth. Both metal and ceramic braces utilise brackets linked together with thin arch wires while small elastic bands provide the connective force necessary to gradually move the teeth and jaw. During treatment, the wires are slowly tightened and ultimately this has the effect of moving the teeth into their correct position.

When treatment has finished, retainers will need to be worn for a period to allow the surrounding bones and gums to settle. Failure to wear a retainer can cause your teeth to move back into their original position, undoing all of your hard work. This in turn may result in visiting us again for further braces in the Sydney CBD area.

What About the Orthodontics Procedure?

Initial consultation

The first step of the procedure is to visit the dental team at Randwick Smiles for an initial consultation. Your teeth will be assessed and we’ll discuss what can be achieved by wearing traditional or ceramic braces. Following this, X-rays will be taken together with moulds of your teeth.

Treatment plan
Having viewed your X-rays and put together a treatment plan, your dentist will discuss your best options. In cases of overcrowding, it may be necessary to extract one or more teeth to make room in your mouth for your newly positioned teeth to move into.
Braces are fitted
Once your treatment option has been decided upon and any preparatory work has been carried out, your orthodontic braces will be fitted. This can take between 1-2 hours and although it doesn’t hurt, your mouth and teeth may feel a little sore for up to a week afterwards. This is natural but once the pain has gone, you’ll soon get used to wearing your braces.
The reveal
For the duration of treatment, you’ll be expected to visit the practice around every 4-6 weeks to have your braces tightened until treatment has ended and it’s time to reveal your brand new smile.
