One of the best ways to get your children excited about braces is to enable them to have freedom when it comes to the appearance of their braces
Here at Instyle Orthodontics in Maroochydore we understand that braces can make you feel like you have little freedom. This is why we make an effort to make you feel like you have a range of choices when it comes to the appearance and style of your braces. We believe that your or your child’s journey with braces should be a positive one that focuses on the benefits of braces. We have a range of modern braces including Incognito and Invisalign as well as traditional braces which are designed to straighten your teeth and mend malocclusions in your smile. Your orthodontist at Instyle Orthodontics can guide you through your braces treatment, while providing the best and most thorough orthodontic service that extends from braces customisation to a superior end result.
We understand your resistance towards traditional braces
Nowadays with such modern technology available we understand your resistance towards metal braces. However, this option is still often the most cost-effective option that has lasting results. Another reason why many parents opt for traditional braces for their children is because they do not rely upon compliance in order to be effective. This is an important factor when considering orthodontic treatment as it’s useless investing in Invisalign If you’re not going to comply in order to receive the most rapid and effective results.
Many patients also worry about pain caused by their braces, however, we can assure you that pain will be minimal. Most patients simply experience discomfort after they first get their braces fitted and when they are tightened. When it comes to sores in the mouth if you use your braces wax correctly (to lubricate your braces) then your chance of sores will be reduced significantly and your comfort improved.
We make sure that you have a lot of choice when it comes to your braces treatment
After we have evaluated your dental history and the current state of your teeth, we will construct an orthodontic plan and recommend certain treatments. We will usually be able to offer you a variety of treatments so that you can select the treatment that would be most beneficial to you or your child. We also have an online braces painter so that you can custom design your braces and customise the colour of your brackets before you decide on a final design.
As you can see you can customise the colour of each bracket and then bring your design to your orthodontist at our Maroochydore practice. If your child is nervous about receiving braces then letting them make their own colour choices can inspire them and ease them into the idea of having braces. This will allow them to think that they have more power over their treatment, rather than feeling like they are being forced to wear braces.
Don’t sacrifice freedom if you need adult orthodontics
If you have finally decided to straighten your teeth in order to improve your professional and social appearance then it’s time to consider your orthodontic options. Many adults are concerned that traditional metal braces are going to make them appear more juvenile than they need to. This can then affect your professional career if people view you differently because you have metal braces. If you are concerned about this occurring then we will recommend Incognito or Invisalign which are both subtle orthodontic treatments that are virtually unnoticeable.
Invisalign is the most popular orthodontic treatment besides traditional braces
Invisalign is one of the most popular orthodontic treatments because it is a completely inconspicuous way to straighten your teeth. The treatment works by using a series of clear aligners which will gradually straighten the teeth in a similar way to traditional orthodontics. However, as the aligners are see-through and removable you have a lot more freedom in terms of when you wear the aligner and when you choose not to. Incognito is similar, however they involve lingual aligners which will be fixed to the back of your teeth. This means that you can straighten your teeth from behind, so that no metal or orthodontic equipment affects your smile zone.
In some cases Invisalign or Incognito will not be viable so your orthodontist at Instyle Orthodontics may strongly recommend traditional braces. However, in most cases you will have options so that you can maintain your best smile even when you’re receiving orthodontic treatment. If you have any questions or queries about our orthodontic treatments please do not hesitate to ask Dr David Vautin or one of his team members.
