Straighten your smile today and discover the benefits tomorrow…

Approximately, one in five orthodontic patients are adults and this number is continuing to grow. With advancements in orthodontic treatment, you have many options available to you that will fit in with your current lifestyle for virtually invisible treatment that can help enhance your appearance and self-esteem. At Victoria Park Dental Specialists we have a range of aesthetic orthodontic treatment and service options available, from modern braces to aesthetic braces and invisible aligners. Don’t put it off any longer, you deserve to have the smile you want, and with discrete treatment options you can achieve your dream smile without wearing traditional metal brackets. 

If I can straighten my smile as an adult, why is it important for children to have theirs straightened?

There is a large difference between the young, developing jaw and the adult permanent jaw. Young jaws such as those during childhood or adolescence are still developing and are easier to guide to the correct position in a timely manner.

Adult jaws have set in place and as a result, changes to the jaw require healing which means longer treatment time. At Victoria Park Dental Specialists we understand this, and will discuss this with you in depth so you can make an informed choice about your treatment. We can still move your teeth to the optimal position; however, we need to allow more time between tightening appointments to ensure healing occurs at an optimal level.

The importance of a beautiful straight smile…

Straightening your smile goes beyond the general aesthetic benefits; there are many further advantages you can gain by properly aligning your teeth. These include:

  • Straight teeth provide an optimal cleaning surface: crooked teeth tend to create extra surface area or crevices that are very difficult to clean. By straightening your teeth you can enjoy more optimal oral health.
  • Straight teeth can decrease risk of injury: crooked teeth that are involved in a dental injury or trauma are more likely to damage the soft tissues (such as cheeks and lips) in the impact.
  • Straight teeth may enhance your quality of life: straightening your smile also involves aligning your bite as well, which allows for optimal dental function and proper speech.

These treatments are often so discrete that their treatment can go complete unnoticed.
