We work with you to create a tailored treatment plan that’s designed to deliver the best results. Over the course of your treatment with us, we’ll assess your dental alignments at regular examinations to ensure the treatment is as efficient and comfortable as possible.

Traditional braces Vs. clear aligners

We understand that everyone’s teeth straightening journey is unique, which is why we offer multiple straightening processes including traditional braces and clear aligners from reputable brands such as Invisalign®, SmileStyler®, ClearCorrect® and Angel Align®.

Our general dentists can help you decide which is best for you, but to start you off, we’ve covered some of the main features of both clear aligners and traditional braces.

Clear Aligners

  • Do not use wires or brackets so are more discreet than traditional braces
  • Suitable to correct mild to moderate orthodontic conditions
  • Aligners are transparent and removable
  • Patients require discipline to ensure they wear aligners as much as possible
  • Most popular amongst adults and older teenagers

Traditional Braces

  • Straighten teeth by applying pressure to move them into the optimal position
  • Requires adjustments every few weeks (6-8 weeks) to maintain necessary pressure
  • Fixed to the teeth
  • Most popular amongst teenagers

What’s involved in the procedure?

 Each case is different and the process can vary slightly from one person to another. We recommend you book an appointment with our experienced dental team in Macquarie Park for an initial assessment and quote.

In general, we’ll achieve the smile you want by the following steps:

  • An initial orthodontic assessment will help us to understand your goals, and discuss the best course of action to correct crooked and poorly positioned teeth, crowding and overbites
  • We will carry out a full oral examination, using dental moulds, intraoral scanners and X-rays and send them off to a laboratory, where your custom braces or aligners will be prepared.
  • Once we have the braces or aligners, we’ll fit them to your teeth. For traditional braces, this involves gluing metal brackets to each tooth, and connecting them with an archwire and elastic rings
  • Your dentist will provide an estimate of the treatment period, and give you guidelines around how to care for your aligners or braces.
  • Treatment time varies for each patient, but you may need to visit us roughly every 6-8 weeks to have your braces tightened or replaced.
