Orthodontics at Essential Care Dental

Having a properly aligned smile can boost a person’s self-confidence, but it’s also an essential part of having healthier teeth and gums. When teeth meet together properly, they’re able to function efficiently and are easier to clean.

Individuals with crowded and misaligned teeth are more likely to experience:

Fortunately, our modern orthodontic therapy with conventional or ceramic (clear) braces can guide you or your child’s teeth into proper alignment without having to visit an off-site orthodontist.
  • Conventional Braces – Affordable and effective, traditional braces offer straightforward results for gapped, misaligned and crowded teeth. They’re useful for people of all ages and children as young as age 7.
  • Clear Bracket Braces (Ceramic Orthodontics) – These appliances mimic many of the features and characteristics of conventional braces, except they’re made of subtle tooth-coloured materials. This feature allows them to blend in with your smile during everyday conversations in professional or social settings.
  • Clear Aligners – If you’re looking to straighten your smile discreetly, Invisalign treatment gets excellent results. Clear aligners such as Invisalign provide adults and children with the opportunity to improve their smiles without traditional braces when possible.

Caring for Your Fixed Braces

Cleaning around your orthodontic appliances is extremely important, as plaque accumulation around wires or brackets can lead to tooth decay and white spots (demineralisation in the enamel). Take care to brush each day thoroughly with a fluoridated toothpaste and clean between teeth with a water flosser or floss threader.

We may also prescribe fluoride to use on a nightly basis, to reduce tooth demineralisation in hard-to-reach areas.
