You can come in for a consult any day and they will guide you as to which treatment program is the best for you and then you can select whichever option you like.
Damon Braces Moorebank is a set of metallic brackets that are attached to the front of your top and bottom teeth with the help of an arch wire. They are like the image of regular Braces you usually get in your mind because of their metallic form and frontal placement; however, they do differ from regular Braces on many accounts.
First, they have a different and modified design that makes them more visually appealing and comfortable. They don’t make use of elastics like regular braces which causes friction in movement. This friction makes teeth movement slower and thus treatment takes longer and the elastics need to be changed every now and then as well.
The Damon System of Braces, on the other hand, is all metal and makes use of a slide mechanism that makes sliding of the brackets easier and thus treatment much faster. Secondly, with the Damon system, fewer extractions are required which plays well with our Non-extraction treatment philosophy and in turn causes less pain to our patients.
Invisalign Braces is a way to straighten your teeth without having visible Braces and is best for those who do not like the metallic look. They consist of a set of clear aligners that are specially designed for your teeth and are changed every 2 weeks per the shift in your teeth. For Invisalign Treatment, everything is done digitally allowing you to have a clear record of your treatment.
A virtual treatment plan is generated using Align Technology’s unique ClinCheck® software that gives you a clear vision of what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck software, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.
There are many advantages of choosing Invisalign Braces including that they are removable allowing for better cleaning of your teeth and braces and it also gives you the choice of removing them whenever you like. Their smooth and clear texture also increases comfort as they do not scratch or hurt your gums like metallic Braces.
Lingual Braces are another choice for those who wish to have Braces that are not visible however they differ from Invisalign Braces as they are metallic in nature and are placed only at the back of your teeth. They consist of a set of brackets that are attached to the back of your lower and upper teeth and are joined together by an arch wire.
Align Dentistry & Medical Centre makes use of STb Social 6 Lingual Braces that are smaller in size as compared to regular Braces and help prevent tongue discomfort and speech problems. They prevent any damage done to the gums by exerting less force on the teeth and avoiding scratches.
