Whether your teeth are misaligned, have gaps or need to be straightened, we’ll help you to choose the most effective orthodontic treatment for long-lasting results.
Our sister clinic Karratha Smiles Dental Centre has a highly trained team experienced in delivering tailored clear aligner treatments for adults and teenagers alike.
What are Orthodontics?
Orthodontics help to correct the bite relationship between the jaws and teeth that may be causing discomfort. Without orthodontics, patients may experience difficulty when cleaning their teeth, which can lead to more serious oral health concerns in the long-term.
Orthodontics or braces can be fitted for adults and teenagers alike. While these treatments can be most effective when started at a younger age, many adults are now enjoying their benefits too, thanks to new dental technology such as ClearCorrect clear aligners that are less visible in the mouth.
What are the benefits of clear aligners?
Clear aligners work to straighten a crooked or crowded bite by moving the teeth and jaws into the desired position over time. We may recommend braces to:
Straighten protruding or crooked teeth that are at risk of injury
Help reduce issues with eating or speaking
Close gaps or remove crowding that can encourage tooth decay
Correct an overbite, underbite or crossbite
What happens next?
If you require orthodontics, we’ll refer you onto our sister clinic, Karratha Smiles Dental Centre. During your consultation for orthodontics, we will carry out a thorough oral examination and determine the best possible solution for your orthodontic needs.
We’ll provide you with easy to understand care instructions for your aligners. You should wear your braces as much as possible during the day and at night, but they should be removed for eating and drinking and when cleaning and flossing your teeth.
You will need to make regular follow-up appointments so that we can check your progress and make adjustments to the aligners.
