At Avondale Dental Centre, we think it’s never too late to achieve your smile goals. And today, there are many options available to help you do so.

Your Avondale, Auckland dentist offers both invisible aligners and traditional braces to give you the smile you’ve been looking for.

Orthodontic Evaluations for Adults

Dr Sinan Najar provides a careful evaluation of your smile and talks to you about your smile objectives. Together, you’ll create a plan that works specifically for your needs, which may include help with the following:

  • Protruding or bucking teeth
  • Gaps or uneven spacing
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Jaw disfunction

Orthodontic Options for Adults

Invisalign

If you’ve chosen Invisalign, we start by taking impressions. These impressions act as models to create your clear aligners. You wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next. When you have finished your supply, therapy is complete.

The benefits of Invisalign include easy removal for brushing, flossing and eating. It is also a transparent system, which provides you with a discreet orthodontic experience. The clear aligners, made of smooth plastic, are also designed for your comfort.

Traditional Orthodontics

With traditional orthodontics, your dentist places brackets on your teeth and relies on adjustable guidewires to straighten your smile comfortably. The brackets are metal or porcelain, depending on your preference or what your dentist feels will work best for you—giving you a predictable outcome.

You visit your dentist every few weeks for wire adjustments and make sure your teeth are lining up according to schedule.

After Orthodontics in Avondale, Auckland

After orthodontics in Avondale, your dentist supplies you with a custom retainer. This is made of clear plastic and works to prevent orthodontic relapse—training your teeth to remain in their upstanding positions.
