Orthodontics at Dandenong Dental Care

Woman wearing traditional bracesAt Dandenong Dental Care, you’ll find a broad range of dental solutions that can improve your smile. One of the most popular cosmetic options, traditional metal braces give long-lasting and predictable results while being budget-friendly.

Our dentists can fit teenagers and adults with metal braces that will achieve a straighter smile, more aligned bite and a brilliant look. We’ll get to know you and your needs and enjoy seeing your teeth shift into place with each checkup appointment you have at our practice.

How Metal Braces Work

Brackets that are made of stainless steel are attached to each tooth. They’re then linked together with a thin wire that will shift teeth into their new position. The wire attaches to each tooth with an o-ring, which is a tiny elastic. Kids and teens love choosing elastics that are fun colours to make their braces customised.

The time frame typically involved is 12-24 months. We’ll be able to give you a precise estimate at your consultation with us.

Caring for Your Braces

Your braces will need to be looked after to ensure that they last for the duration of treatment. That’s one of the reasons we schedule regular checkups, during which we can make adjustments and assess your progress. We recommend that you avoid eating foods that are sticky, crunchy or hard. It’s essential that you continue to brush your teeth twice daily and floss around your braces.
