This orthodontics treatment is generally fast and ensures to bring the desired outcome. If you require complex tooth movement, such as crooked teeth, fixed braces are considered as a suitable option for you.
These braces are made of high-quality metal (stainless steel or titanium) or ceramic brackets. You can go with the one based on your preferences and budget.
Generally, this treatment lasts from 6 months to 2 years. It clearly depends on the complexity of the teeth condition and the patient’s age. Each treatment is planned based on the individual patient. Our professionals at Dentist Sunshine will provide an approximate timeframe after examining your condition and orthodontic assessment.
Our orthodontist will provide specific oral hygiene instructions. You can use a small dental brush to clean your teeth around the brackets. Also, make sure to follow the cleaning instructions regularly. Insufficient cleaning can increase the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. So, it is also important to attend regular maintenance appointments at our clinic during and after the completion of treatment.
Yes, there are alternatives to braces. But they are available depending on your orthodontic problem. Suppose, you want to correct a gap between your front teeth, then you can go for the dental bonding method instead of using braces for all teeth. When you visit Dentist Sunshine, the orthodontist will discuss all possible options with you. He/she will also make you understand whether there is a need for braces or not.
