Teeth Straightening

There are many advantages to well-aligned teeth, including easier cleaning, better oral hygiene, clearer speech and a more pleasant smile. Orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age however, the earlier orthodontic treatment begins, the more quickly the problem can be successfully resolved.

What problems can be treated with orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a versatile branch of dentistry that can be used alone, or in combination with maxillofacial or cosmetic dentistry.

Here are some of the common conditions treated with orthodontics:

  • Anteroposterior deviations – The discrepancy between a pair of closed jaws is known as an anteroposterior discrepancy or deviation. An example of such a discrepancy would be an overbite (where the upper teeth are further forward than the lower teeth), or an underbite (where the lower teeth are further forward then the upper teeth).
  • Overcrowding – Overcrowding is a common orthodontic problem. It occurs when there is an insufficient space for the normal growth and development of adult teeth.
  • Aesthetic problems – A beautiful straight smile may be marred by a single misaligned tooth.

Invisible Braces – TRU-LINE™

North Sydney Dental offers the latest teeth straightening technology with invisible braces – TRU-LINE Invisible Orthodontic System™. This system is suitable for mild to moderate crowding of your teeth, space closure and many other orthodontic problems which can be corrected with a series of appliances custom made and tailored to your particular case.

For most people a series of transparent aligners are issued at regular intervals by your dental professional and the desired teeth are moved slowly before the next aligner is used. Each aligner is worn for about 3 weeks before progressing to the next one. Aligners are worn full time and only removed for eating brushing and flossing. The number of aligners worn vary from case to case, so treatment is customized to suit your particular needs. It will be difficult for anyone to notice you are wearing TRU-LINE™ appliances they are so discreet.

Now nothing comes between your lifestyle and having an incredible smile. TRU-LINE™ offers you comfort, convenience and virtual invisibility during treatment.
