The advantages of straight teeth.

Confidence and pride in a great smile

Nothing beats a great smile. Some studies suggest that the smile is the first thing noticed by nearly 50% of people when they meet someone. One of the primary contributors to a beautiful smile is straight teeth.

But the self confidence straight teeth will give you is not necessarily their only benefit.

Easier hygiene

When your teeth are in the right place, flossing and brushing are made so much easier.

Enhanced function of the teeth

When teeth meet each other correctly, you can bite things effectively and then chew them up effectively and efficiently. This is the first functional step in a healthy digestive system.

Enhanced health and function of the jaws

All teeth meeting at once with the jaw joints placed in a correctly balanced position offers protection to each tooth as well as the jaw joint. The load is evenly spread over all teeth so none take the brunt of the bite force.

At Melbourne Dentist we offer Invisalign clear aligner treatment.

Invisalign is a system that uses clear, nearly invisible aligners which gradually and gently shift your teeth into a better position. They can be removed when you eat, for special occasions, and to allow you to continue your regular daily oral hygiene routine.

The system is designed to more readily fit into a busy work, school or travel schedule. And in many cases it requires fewer visits to the clinic than traditional braces.

Along with improved aesthetic alignment, facial profiles, breathing difficulties and teeth functional positions can also be improved.

Orthodontics can make an incredible contribution to a great smile and a lifetime of dental health.

In most instances, orthodontic straightening is the most ideal treatment for crooked teeth. However, many people do not wish to go through this process, and this is where veneers excel. You can have instant straight teeth in 2 to 4 weeks if you can’t wait for orthodontics.

Porcelain veneers or crowns may also be particularly enticing if your teeth are also misshapen or dark in colour. They may also be needed in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. Sometimes, teeth in an incorrect position may be worn or broken and when the teeth are straightened, the missing and damaged parts or these teeth will need to be repaired or replaced.
