Do you feel that you or a family member have crowded teeth? A gappy smile? Jaw problems? Bite issues? Or simply want to improve your smile and would like to get them assessed? Orthodontic treatment has come a long way in recent years and there are now many different options to correct teeth alignment for both functional and cosmetic reasons.
When you think of orthodontic treatment you probably think of the tradition metal braces. This technique is still used today and has stood the test of time because it is a very effective treatment option to correct significant functional issues and alignment. It is also one of the most cost effective options.
However, braces are now also available in white or clear porcelain brackets. These blend in and are a more discrete option for those wanting to treat their teeth without it being so noticeable as they blend in with your natural teeth colour.
We also offer clear aligners in a range of different types including Invisalign, Clear Correct and Smile Styler. These are almost invisible, clear, removable aligners (like little aligners) that are worn in succession to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike braces, they are removable so you can eat and clean your teeth but are otherwise worn at all times.
Did you know that if treated early enough there are options for children prior to braces that may even prevent or shorten the duration of braces and may even prevent the need for extractions. As the jaw grows expansion plates can be used to help guide the growth of the bone to create the correct shape and space for adult teeth to come through. If you think your children’s teeth look like they may require orthodontic treatment this may be a possible option for them so it’s best to have them assessed earlier rather than later.
At DBay Dental Dr Michel exclusively practices aesthetic, reconstructive and orthodontic dentistry. During a consultation with Dr Michel he will assess your current dentition and listen to your concerns and create a customised treatment plan to suit your needs. This appointment would then be followed by taking some dental records including photos, impressions and x-rays to ensure the best possible customised treatment and also so we can compare your teeth before and after treatment. During your treatment you would then see Dr Michel for several regular visits so he can monitor your progress and make any adjustments required.
We also offer a range of interest free payment plan options to make correcting your teeth more financially manageable. Our team at reception would be more than happy to discuss payment plan options with you and explain how the payment plan works including a breakdown of direct debit figures using your treatment plan quote.
It is never too early or too late to consider straightening your teeth and get you smiling again so call our friendly team today to book at consultation with Dr Michel at a time that suits you.
