Teeth Straightening for Kids and Adults on Sydney’s North Shore

by Helen Blunt orthodontist

Whether you’re looking for a kid’s orthodontist in Sydney, or Invisalign for adults on Sydney’s North Shore, you’ll soon discover that there are a number of options open to you. Naturally, when it comes to something as important as enhancing physical appearance, i.e. straightening yours or your children’s teeth, you’ll want to narrow these options down and ensure that you are absolutely putting your trust in the top orthodontist in Sydney.

 

Dentist or orthodontist?

Orthodontist rather than dentist? Yes. When you’re looking after the general health of your teeth a good dentist is a wonderful thing, but when you move into the realm of teeth straightening you want to be securing the services of somebody with the additional special training and qualifications needed to bring about the best results.

 

Invisalign

Today’s preferred teeth straightening technique among the best orthodontists is Invisalign, a practically invisible teeth-straightening procedure that presents a clear alternative to braces. The arrival of Invisalign braces in Sydney within the past decade or so was a major step forward for orthodontics. Invisalign clear braces use a series of transparent, removable and comfortable aligners to move teeth into the correct position – which means you can still smile confidently during treatment. Invisalign uses 3D computer imaging technology to create a series of individual personalised aligners using medical grade plastic.

 

Initially worn day and night for 2 weeks, the first set of aligners are removed only for eating, drinking and brushing. After this, you move onto the next set of aligners and wear them for another 2 weeks, and so on, until you have completed all aligners in the series and your teeth have straightened into their final desired position.

 

This clean, hygienic and unobtrusive process has made Invisalign for adults a very popular method of teeth straightening, because it needn’t affect your self-confidence, either personally or professionally.

 

The cost of ‘better’?

You’d presume therefore that cost of Invisalign in Sydney would be greater than that of traditional metal braces, but actually a top orthodontist in Sydney shouldn’t charge any more for this process and will offer payment plans to accommodate a wide range of financial circumstances. If you are insured with a health insurance provider, you should research potential inclusions for these dental procedures. Unfortunately, health fund ‘extras’ don’t rollover and accumulate, and in fact re-set on the first day of the new year, so to avoid missing out on inclusions, use this year’s orthodontic and dental rebates before they run out on 31 December.
