Getting braces can be a complicated experience. But it doesn’t have to be scary. With the right knowledge, dental braces can be a walk in the park. Find answers to some common questions about orthodontics and braces.
Orthodontic treatments make the best of your teeth.
This includes straightening your teeth so you’ll be able to take care of your teeth and gums more easily and improving your bite so you can eat without hassle. And your smile will be improved, as well.
Treatment may involve using braces to straighten crooked, crowded or protruding teeth, close teeth gaps, and correct the bite, so the upper and the lower teeth meet properly when the mouth is closed.
Benefits of Orthodontics
Going to the dentist can be hard for many of us.
And for some people, wearing braces can be a further daunting experience.
And while braces are meant for straightening out your teeth, they actually have several other benefits as well.

Types of Braces in Leederville
Today’s orthodontics offer more kinds of braces. Check out your options below:
Metal Braces/Conventional Braces
These are the metal brackets and wires that most people think of when they hear the word “braces.” However, modern brackets are smaller and less obvious than the “metal-mouth” braces that many adults remember.
Plus, new heat-activated archwires utilise your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past.
Ceramic braces have the same size and shape as conventional metal braces, except that the brackets are tooth-coloured or clear to blend in with teeth. Some even use tooth-coloured archwires to be even less obvious.
Invisalign® in Leederville
Invisalign® treatment consists of wearing a series of 18 to 30 customised, mouthguard-like virtually invisible plastic aligners. The aligners are removable and are replaced every two weeks.
How Braces Move Teeth
Braces move your teeth by applying constant pressure on them for extended periods of time. Your jaw gradually adjusts to conform to this pressure.
We tend to think of our teeth as being connected to our jawbone, making it hard to imagine how they can be moved to the right position. But under your gums is a membrane surrounded by your bones, that connects your teeth to your jaw. This membrane controls the placement of your teeth, and it adapts to the pressure being put on your teeth by braces.
Receiving braces doesn’t hurt during the appointment, and it takes between one to two hours for them to be installed. You may feel soreness for the first week as you adjust. Each time your braces are adjusted by your Leederville dentist, you may also be sore for a few days.
