Teeth Straightening Sydney

Are your crooked teeth bringing down your confidence? Do you wish to straighten your teeth in a discreet way? Designer Smiles has a solution for you – clear aligners.

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are orthodontic devices used to align teeth in a convenient manner. They are invisible, plastic braces that are difficult to notice. Clear aligners look similar to teeth whitening trays and are worn over the teeth like a mouthguard.

At Designer Smiles, we offer a variety of clear braces that allow you to achieve straightened teeth with minimum of fuss and discomfort. Since these braces are almost invisible, no one except for your dentist will ever know that you are undergoing an treatment.

Why is it Important to Correct Misaligned Teeth?

Most of the patients consider teeth straightening for aesthetic reasons. However, correcting misaligned teeth has other benefits as well. Teeth straightening allows convenient brushing and flossing of teeth during the treatment duration. It decreases the chances of tooth decay and improves your overall oral health.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners also known as clear braces or invisible braces are ideal for adults wanting to straighten their teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. Straightening your teeth with traditional braces requires you to wear one device throughout the treatment. However, with invisible braces, you are made to wear a number of aligners, depending on how mild or complex your dental condition is. The aligners are custom made as per the impressions of your teeth.

When you first put on the braces, they may feel tight. However, once your teeth begin to move in the desired position, they may feel little loose, which is a good sign indicating that the braces are working for you. Your aligners will be changed at regular intervals throughout the treatment.

What Conditions Can Our Invisible Aligners Treat?

  • Overbite – This is a condition in which your upper front teeth overlap your lower front teeth, causing them to wear down.
  • Underbite – This is a condition in which your lower front teeth overlap your upper front teeth. The problem usually occurs because your lower jaw is way too forward.
  • Crossbite – This is a condition in which your upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when you close your mouth. A crossbite can wear down your teeth and cause them to chip and can also lead to receding of gums.
  • Open bite – This is a condition in which your upper teeth don’t touch your lower teeth when your mouth is closed.
  • Gap teeth - This refers to the problem of having too much space between two or more of your teeth. Gapped teeth can make your gums sore and tender, leading to gum disease.
  • Overcrowding – This problem occurs when your mouth does not have sufficient space to fit your teeth perfectly.

Clear aligners can treat many other problems apart from the ones we have mentioned. Since every patient is different and so are their case, it is important to seek consultation from our doctor to discuss your problem and find out the right treatment.
