Orthodontist Cranbourne

Looking for Orthodontic treatments in Cranbourne?

At Shine Dental, our orthodontic treatments will straighten any crowded or crooked teeth. Our aim is not only to improve their appearance but improve your bite to achieve outstanding overall wellbeing. When teeth don’t meet correctly, they put pressure on the muscles of the jaw. This may cause joint problems and even headaches.

With our orthodontic services, we Shine Dental will align your teeth to make your bite more evenly and reduce any tension your muscle might have. Additionally, aligned teeth will also facilitate teeth cleaning which is important for maintaining good oral health.

The dentists at Shine dental have the necessary training and consider it their responsibility to recognize, diagnose and where necessary refer abnormalities in the developing teeth and jaws.

Although usually orthodontic treatment is recommended when all permanent teeth are present, in some cases where there are obvious problems early detection and orthodontic intervention may be required to prevent potential future complications and for the normal growth and development of teeth and jaws. However, it can be done at any age children, teenagers and adults.

There are different types of orthodontic treatments available to specifically treat the exact problem your teeth or jaw is experiencing.

Traditional Braces:

This type of orthodontic treatment is the most recommended for kids and teens. Traditional braces have evolved since the early days as modern metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever before because they are now lighter in weight.

Traditional braces are made from high-grade stainless steel and have small metal brackets that are glued to each tooth using a type of cement. The brackets are linked to each other with a thin wire. This wire is adjusted to gradually straighten your teeth and correct your bite. To connect the brackets to the wire tiny elastics, also known as ligatures, are used. These elastics can be colourful to make your braces fun and fashionable for kids.

Traditional braces are a very effective and reliable treatment option. In comparison with other treatments, this is usually most cost-effective one.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces work just like traditional braces; however, this type of braces is popular among adults who need orthodontic treatments as they are less visible than traditional braces. The brackets are made from a transparent ceramic material and are connected with a tooth-coloured wire to blend in with your teeth. This type of brace cost a bit more than traditional braces but they are simply ideal for those who might feel self-conscious with traditional metal braces.

Clear and Removable Aligners

Invisalign is a removable and clear aligner use to fix less severe orthodontic problems present in either teens or adults. Unfortunately, clear aligners are not suitable for children as a fully developed dentition is required for this treatment to work effectively. Invisalign resembles a mouthguard and are custom made to adapt to your teeth. Every two week a new aligner is made with the adjustments necessary to perfectly align your teeth. Invisalign requires discipline due to if they are removed too often the treatment will not work effectively.

At shine dental, we are dedicated to providing the best care for your teeth which is why we offer affordable orthodontics treatments. Our friendly dentist will ensure you get the best type of orthodontic service your teeth need.
