Braces in Avondale, Auckland address the following issues:
- Twisted or crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Metal and wire braces are sometimes recommended for moderate to severe misalignment and overlapping teeth.
Metal and wire braces, sometimes called traditional braces, rely on brackets attached to the teeth and wires strung across. These wires are periodically tightened to bring teeth in line gradually.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign is the modern-day equivalent of traditional braces. This system is recommended for mild to moderate misalignment and overlapping teeth.
Invisalign therapy is made up of clear aligners that are changed out every few weeks to bring your smile in line on a timetable. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
Six Month Smiles
Adults tend to choose this therapy because it is discreet and fast. Six Month Smiles is a clear braces therapy that concentrates on your smile line as opposed to your entire mouth. This is why you can achieve straighter teeth in just six months as opposed to traditional braces and Invisalign that may take a year or longer to bring your teeth in line.
Straight Teeth May Mean Better Oral Health
Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss. Additionally, aligned teeth may be less likely to show signs of wear and erosion, which can lead to cavities and fractures.
If you’re considering straight teeth in Avondale, Auckland, we invite you to give us a call.
