Dental Braces

Teeth-straightening options for teens and adults

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.

Metal braces

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.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Get straighter, healthier teeth without the inconvenience of braces

Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment used by over 5 ½ million people worldwide to straighten your teeth without wearing braces. Every two weeks, we’ll give you a new set of clear aligners that gently move the alignment of your teeth. You can remove them whenever you please, and they’re almost impossible to detect when wearing.

See the final results

Invisalign has its own computer-generated imaging (CGI) technology called ClinCheck. Using the technology to scan your mouth, you’ll be able to see your teeth on the screen – both how they are now and how they will look at the end of treatment. This software is also responsible for creating the exact 3-D printed aligners – you’ll be given a new pair every two weeks.

Benefits of Invisalign

No metal braces - and consequently no gum irritation and no metal (train track) teeth Removable – you can remove your aligners at any time, which is particularly handy when eating or cleaning. Then, you can easily reinsert them. For successful treatment, you’re required to wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours every day. Almost invisible – unless you are looking very closely, your Invisalign clear aligners will be undetectable.

How Invisalign can help your teeth

There are many ways Invisalign can help dental orthodontic concerns, such as:
Tooth spacing

Some people have too much space between their teeth, giving them a gappy smile. Invisalign can gently minimise these gaps while evening out the rest of the teeth.

Tooth crowding

Some individuals have teeth pushed too close together, with some of these individuals feeling embarrassed about the aesthetic consequences. This problem is compounded by the fact that crowded teeth are more difficult to clean and can easily get debris stuck in between them. Invisalign can even out this problem.

Deep bite

Also known as a malocclusion, overbite or closed bite, this is where the upper front teeth cover the lower teeth too much when the mouth is closed. A deep bite can also cause tooth crowding, making it difficult to clean your teeth easily.

Cross bite

In a healthy bite, all the top teeth sit neatly over the bottom teeth. With a cross bite, some of the teeth sit out or under where they should. Sit. This gives an asymmetric appearance to the mouth and teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s never too late to straighten your teeth
What is the cost of Invisalign?

The cost of Invisalign depends on the extent of changes you require and whether we are treating all or just some of your teeth. The national average cost for Invisalign is between $3000-$7000; however, you will have to see a dentist to get an individual quote. Also, if you have dental health insurance, you may be able to claim some money back. Speak to your provider to find out more.

How long does it take to straighten teeth with Invisalign?

It can take anywhere between 12 to 24 months to straighten your teeth with Invisalign, depending on the complexity of your case and what you wish to achieve.

Is Invisalign painful?

Typically, Invisalign is less painful than conventional wire braces as they don’t cause any irritation or sores on the inside of the mouth. There will be some pain as your teeth slowly move, but this will subside over time.

Which is better – braces or Invisalign?

Your dentist will tell you which option is better for you – either braces or Invisalign. Braces may be better for those with complex tooth alignment problems and can work faster to close gaps than Invisalign. Invisalign can still provide excellent results, and have other benefits such as being removable and close to invisible. Talk to your dentist to find out which option is best for you.

How often do I need to see the dentist with Invisalign?

In most cases, you’ll need to see the dentist approximately every six weeks to check that your Invisalign clear aligners are doing their job.
