Braces not only enhance the appearance of your smile and face, but help with maintaining good oral hygiene, prevent jaw pain, and avoid premature wear of teeth. When your teeth are better aligned, your teeth are able to function properly and it’s much easier to clean each tooth! Straightened teeth also reduce your chances of developing problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.
The Orthodontic Place offers traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, as well as a range of other orthodontic treatments. No two sets of teeth are the same, so regardless of how complex or unique your teeth alignment issues may be, our lead orthodontist Dr Sara Dudley and our professional dental team are here to help tailor the best braces treatment plan available.
From the moment you step into our clinics, you’ll be assisted by a team of friendly, professional and passionate dental professionals who will take care of your every need and ensure you’re nothing short of happy with your orthodontic treatments.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before.
Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Metal braces tend to be more cost effective and can be used to treat a range of teeth misalignment and other orthodontic issues. Metal braces are more durable as they can withstand more pressure than other forms of braces or orthodontic treatments. This means you’re less likely to experience breakage of the brackets and avoid extending the treatment time longer than it needs to be.
At The Orthodontic Place, we offer specialised orthodontic treatments in metal kids braces, teen braces, and adult braces. With metal braces, you have the option of adding coloured elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colourful smile.
Clear ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.
For this reason, clear ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. Clear ceramic braces is a more aesthetic option to provide great results without the traditional look of metal braces. To learn more about clear ceramic braces treatment and whether it’s right for you, we recommend getting in touch with our friendly staff and book a consultation at The Orthodontic Place today.
The Orthodontic Place keeps up to date with the latest and most innovative forms of dental technology – guaranteeing all our patients a high standard of quality, efficient, and tailored care.
When kids reach the age of around 7 years old, this is typically when crossbites, crowding and other problems can be seen and evaluated. Braces for kids (mini braces) are often required in cases where their misaligned teeth may be causing immediate functional problems and could potentially be harming their health.
However, we also offer removable appliances such as plates, functional appliances, and expanders as early forms of orthodontic treatment to lessen or eliminate the need for treatment later on.
Teenage braces are among the most common orthodontic treatments as this is when all the adult teeth have emerged and can be treated for alignment and correction. Teen braces treatment may also be used in conjunction with teeth appliances such as plates, functional appliances, and expanders for a better result.
Teens are often concerned about the appearance of braces, which is why we also provide clear braces (ceramic) as well as Serial clear aligners such as Invisalign treatment as alternatives. However, traditional metal braces continue to be the most common form of orthodontic braces as they’re more durable and have been improved over the years for a more comfortable feel.
When it comes to achieving the perfect smile, we believe it’s never too late – especially as an adult! Adult braces can help with reducing the likelihood of tooth decay, wear of enamel, TMJ/TMD pain, and more.
At The Orthodontic Place, we offer tailored adult braces treatments for traditional metal, ceramic (clear), and Invisalign (invisible aligners). As an adult, you may be more concerned about the health of your teeth during your adult braces treatment, especially if you may have undergone other types of dental treatments previously that have impacted your teeth and oral health.
We assure with confidence that no matter what dental concerns you have, we’ll handle your treatment smoothly and ensure you’re more than happy with the end result.
As soon as you meet our team at The Orthodontic Place, you’ll never need to look for other dentists or search online for ‘Invisalign near me’ again.
We have two clinics conveniently located nearby in Kent Town and Hindmarsh, South Australia, meaning we’re always in close reach and ready to help you or your kids towards getting beautiful and confident smiles!
