Orthodontic braces are the traditional, effective way to align and straighten crooked teeth.
Braces are a common orthodontic treatment undertaken by children, teenagers, and adults, to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite discrepancies. Orthodontic braces can be for cosmetic purposes only, such as improving your smile and confidence, or a combination of cosmetic and functional correction, such as aligning your teeth and correcting an increased overjet, a deep bite, or a crossbite.
These consist of small brackets bonded to each of the teeth. Running through the brackets is an arch wire which gradually straightens the teeth over the course of your orthodontic treatment.
Here at Clear Orthodontic Studio, we provide a range of high-quality braces at our Perth clinic to help patients achieve a better, straighter smile. From clear and transparent braces to metal braces, we’ll create a custom treatment and plan for you or your child, with a variety of appliances. Find out more about the types of braces we offer below or contact our Perth clinic today on (08) 6225 5010 to book an appointment.
Clear or transparent braces are made out of clear ceramic to blend in with the colour of your teeth, creating a more aesthetic appearance. With clear braces, will still require a metal wire to run through these brackets, but they are more inconspicuous than your traditional metal braces. Clear braces are also slightly smaller and more comfortable than the metal braces. We provide clear braces here at our Perth clinic, to patients who are more mindful about their smile.
Metal braces today are a lot smaller and less obtrusive than they used to be and work the same way as the clear braces.
The wires running through the brackets are held in place with plastic modules. These can be coloured and changed at each appointment. They also look great around clear ceramic brackets. We provide metal braces here at our clinic and tailor treatments to suit our individual patients’ needs.
