Orthodontics near Frankston
BRING OUT THE SMILE YOU ARE MEANT TO HAVE
with specialist orthodontics near Frankston
Improperly positioned teeth are a common issue faced by a huge percentage of Australians today. It could be in the form of crooked, gappy, overcrowded or protruding teeth, resulting in an overbite, underbite or crossbite. Orthodontics is a specialised branch of dentistry that deals with preventing, diagnosing and treating malocclusion, or misaligned teeth and jaws.
The alignment of our teeth and jaws affect not only our smile and overall facial appearance, but can also impact some very essential daily aspects like chewing and speech. Orthodontic treatment can help reposition the teeth to correct the alignment, and optimise their overall functionality. So this makes it not just a cosmetic treatment, but also an essential one. Baxter Dental Surgery is among the prominent dental clinics offering orthodontics near Frankston.
When will you need orthodontic treatment?
You will likely need orthodontic treatment if you have any of the below conditions:
- Gaps between your teeth
- Misaligned teeth and jaws
- Crooked teeth
- Improper bite due to all of the above
- Tooth decay due to bad alignment
How does orthodontics work?
Orthodontic treatments usually use fixed or removable devices to move or maintain the position of the teeth. These could include braces, space maintainers, palatal expanders, retainers and more.
Metal and ceramic braces continue being very common, but at Baxter, we also offer new age orthodontic options in the form of Invisalign, which are removable invisible aligners.
Depending upon the extent of correction required and the type of treatment plan chosen, it can take anywhere between 6-9 months to a couple of years to achieve the desired results. But after investing this time, you can be assured of results that last a lifetime.
What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?
Needless to say, the biggest advantage of orthodontics is a set of perfectly aligned teeth and jaws, and a beautiful smile. It is also good to consider the boost in confidence gained from smiling your best smile. Orthodontics can also correct chewing and speech issues due to misalignment. And in some cases, it can protect crooked teeth from damage and decay due to difficulty in cleaning.
