If your teeth are not as straight as you would like them to be, we can help you realise an aligned and gap-free smile. Your dentist in Tumut is an Invisalign provider and helps patients just like you enjoy straight teeth through clear aligners.
In addition to Invisalign in Tumut, we also offer customised traditional braces, which includes bracket, band, and arch-wire selection.
Are Invisible Braces Right for You?
Dr Khumo Tlhalerwa provides a comprehensive exam to make sure orthodontics is a viable option for you. Your dentist in Tumut also wants to hear about your smile goals, and he encourages your questions throughout the entire process.
If your exam, x-rays, and smile chat confirm that Invisalign or traditional braces are a good option for you, the next step is preparation.
Orthodontic Preparation and Therapy
With Invisalign, your dentist takes impressions of your smile, and Invisalign uses these impressions to provide the clear aligners you’ll need throughout your orthodontic therapy. You change your aligner approximately every two weeks and wear it for up to 22 hours per day. You can remove your aligners while enjoying a favourite meal or while brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
With traditional bracket and wire braces, you visit the dentist periodically for tightening appointments.
Issues Corrected through Orthodontics
We offer Invisalign in Tumut to patients who are looking for a more discreet teeth-straightening therapy. Typically, Invisalign corrects mild to moderate:
- Bite misalignment
Traditional bracket and wire braces may be better suited for moderate to severe issues.
Your Tumut dentist will explain why one therapy may be better for your smile than another—based on needed orthodontics.
Benefits of Straight Teeth
We offer Invisalign in Tumut and traditional braces, so our patients have options when it comes to their orthodontics. Dr Tlhalerwa also understands the unique oral health benefits of a straight smile.
If your teeth are correctly aligned and not overlapping, bacteria have fewer places to collect. Brushing your teeth and flossing is simply more effective with a straight smile.
Also, when your bite is in great working order, you may encounter less wear on your teeth, which can mean fewer cavities and a decreased risk of future oral health problems.
After Braces or Invisalign Treatment
If you take the step to straighten your smile, we want to make sure the treatment holds. For this reason, we offer a custom retainer following orthodontics in Tumut. Your dentist fits you with this device to prevent orthodontic relapse.
