Today, there is a variety of tooth-straightening options on the market.
At Marketplace Dental, we offer both metal braces (made of stainless steel) and Invisalign (clear aligners made of a translucent material). Both types of braces can be used on either teens or adults.
Many of us choose to have our teeth straightened to have a more attractive-looking smile. But straighter, well-aligned teeth are also healthier teeth.
Crowded, poorly aligned teeth are far more difficult to clean and floss. This can lead to cavities and a condition known as periodontitis (gum disease), which is not only damaging to your teeth and gums – and hip pocket – but can have negative health effects throughout your body with conditions such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and others.
We’re registered with all health funds and are preferred provider with nib, BUPA, HCF and Medibank Private.
The most common type of braces, metal braces help with the more complex cases. Metal braces can be helpful in correcting jaw rotations, tooth alignment and correcting the bite. They can also help to aesthetically improve your facial profile. Metal braces can sometimes be made with clear ceramic brackets so they blend in more naturally with your teeth.
