Dental Braces at Burwood Dental Care

Braces are the most common orthodontic appliance used to correct malocclusion or the misalignment of teeth. They do this by changing how the teeth contact each other when biting. This can be done at Burwood Dental Care using a wire that is bonded onto each tooth or a plastic bracket with metal or ceramic wire connected to it.

Our dentists at Burwood Dental Care will ask you to choose your braces based on the position of your teeth and your budget. Immediate-bonding braces are made of metal wire that connects the brackets on your teeth. They are less expensive, but the brackets can dislodge more easily. Traditional stainless steel braces have brackets that are cemented onto your teeth. They are more expensive but are more durable and less likely to cause irritation.

Two popular ways for teeth straightening are braces or Invisalign

Both methods are performed by hundreds of orthodontists a year, and both yield successful results from both. However, one of the most frequent questions is: “Which is the best for my teeth?” 

Orthodontic braces and Invisalign are both excellent ways to improve your smile. However, since they each have their benefits, one service may be the most suitable for a patient. Below is a breakdown of the most significant positives and negatives.

Invisalign Pros:

  • It is transparent and more inconspicuous than braces, which can draw negative attention to a patient’s mouth.
  • Since you can take out Invisalign whenever you want, it is easy to brush/floss and complete other daily activities with Invisalign instead of braces. 
  • Patients do not have to follow a specific diet. They can eat whatever they want, anytime they want, as long as they do not wear their aligners while they eat. 

Invisalign Cons:

  • It is important to note that Invisalign is only suitable for mild to moderate bite problems. Patients who have more complex dental problems cannot use Invisalign, which means they have to use traditional braces. 
  • You may have to pay more for it.
  • It’s easy to misplace Invisalign since it’s clear.

Braces Pros:

  • Despite the severity of a specific dental alignment issue, braces can be used to correct almost any issue.
  • The cost of braces is usually cheaper than that of Invisalign. 

Braces Cons:

  • A semi-permanent brace is fixed into a patient’s mouth, making it difficult for them to eat and brush/floss.
  • They are very noticeable. 
  • The patient with braces is not supposed to eat certain foods, such as hard candy, caramel, etc. 
  • Braces require regular adjustments, which can be both inconvenient and uncomfortable. 

Getting braces can be a scary experience for anyone, no matter how old you are or where you live. During your first consultation, your dental practitioner will conduct an examination of your teeth and determine which type of braces will work best for you. There are several kinds of braces that can be used to correct a variety of issues, and each has its own benefits and risks. If you are considering getting dental braces, it is important to understand how you will feel during each stage of the process.

It is very important to understand how much pain you will be in when you get dental braces. No one can completely predict how you will feel when you get braces, because everyone is different and experiences pain in different ways. If you are concerned about the pain level when you get your braces, it is very important to ask your dentist about this before you get braces.

This is a question that many people ask, and honestly, there is no specific answer. This is because your dentist or orthodontist will determine the duration of treatment based on several factors. The first is the severity of your malocclusion. Some people just require minor adjustments, while others require extensive treatments.

The second factor is the age of the patient. Younger patients tend to heal and develop more quickly than older patients. The third factor is the duration of the treatment. If you have already had orthodontic treatment in the past and your teeth have been straightened out, your orthodontist will probably prescribe a shorter period of treatment.

In general, most people who need dental braces have them put on for about 18 months. However, a few factors can determine whether the time is shorter or longer for an individual. For example, more complicated issues such as overcrowding or teeth that are crooked in more than one area can lengthen the amount of time it takes to treat dental issues with braces.

Many factors influence the cost of braces. In Australia, ceramic braces cost between $5,000 and $8,500 for a traditional treatment lasting 18 months.

Metal braces can run approximately $8,000 per arch, while lingual braces can be as little as $7,500 for a single arch and up to $12,500 for a full treatment.

You can expect to pay between $2,000 and $9,000 for clear braces depending on the type you get and your circumstances.

You should discuss your personal situation with your dentist. This example is for guidance only, and the treatment you receive will depend on the circumstances of your case.
