Are you worried about your misaligned teeth? Well, then invisible braces are the ideal choice to straighten them. While traditional metal braces are capable of treating bite and teeth misalignment issues, they are no longer the only effective option for teeth straightening. Yes, the invisible braces cost in Melbourne is affordable, and they have revolutionised the process of straightening teeth and have become a popular choice as their track record of success grows wider, and more well known.
Invisalign and other “invisible” alternatives are making it possible to achieve a perfect smile without going months or years with the discomfort and unsightliness of a mouth full of metal wires and brackets.
What are the dental problems that invisible braces can treat?
The invisible braces in Melbourne are used for correcting following orthodontic issues:
- Gapped teeth:
The reason for the gaps between teeth is abnormal jawbone growth and tooth loss. The gapped teeth can lead to several gum problems including periodontal pockets and increased chance of periodontal disease. The gums rely on protection from teeth, and gaps leave them more vulnerable.
- Overcrowded teeth:
If you have small jawbones, there won’t be enough space to accommodate all your teeth to sit comfortably in your mouth. This leads to overcrowding. If it is left as it is, it can become severely crooked and wreak havoc on your bite and the appearance of your smile. It also makes it difficult to clean your teeth, allowing plaque to accumulate and it increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Overbite is technically referred to as overjet and is caused due to bad oral habits and an overdeveloped bone structure. Overbite makes chewing difficult and can cause irritated gums.
The underbite, technically called as prognathism, is the ‘bad bite’ that happens when the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth. Missing upper teeth can also cause an underbite to form. The under bite can make it difficult to chew because it prevents the front teeth and molars from functioning normally. It can also lead to won teeth and can cause painful jaw joint problems.
The front teeth don’t make contact in an open bite which is caused by a genetically abnormal structure or excessive thumb-sucking. If it is left untreated, it may also cause speech impairment and increases the risk of a TMJ (Thermo-mandibular Joint) disorder.
Crossbite happens when a crooked jaw causes teeth to align strangely, causing one or more upper teeth to make contact with the inside of the lower teeth. It can occur anywhere in the mouth when a crossbite is present. Worn teeth, gum disease and bone loss, are the common problems associated with the overbite.
The price of invisible braces in Melbourne depends upon the complexity of your problem and your course of treatment. The invisible braces cost in Melbourne start at $1650 for both arches, and the maximum for any invisible or clear alignment treatment is $4850.
