crooked teeth for a straight smile.
What are braces?
Braces are a common teeth straightening method that use brackets and wires to align crooked teeth. They are usually applied in your teenage years, however can be effective for adults as well. Camberwell Orthodontic Group offers three varieties of braces to suit our patients’ individual needs and goals
In the case of metal braces, metal brackets are attached to the teeth, each connected by a thin metal wire. They work to straighten the teeth with regular adjustments that gently reposition the teeth to create a straight smile. With the option for colourful variations, these are popular among younger patients.
For a more discreet braces treatment, patients can choose ceramic braces. These braces straighten teeth with their tooth-coloured brackets and thin metal connectors, which gradually apply more and more gentle pressure with regular adjustments. Their subtle appearance makes them popular among adult patients.
Lingual braces could be a suitable option for some patients who are wanting a more subtle straightening treatment. They are fixed to the backs of your teeth, creating a near-invisible treatment option. Each set of lingual braces are custom-made to fit your teeth and gradually straighten your smile.
