If you suffer from crooked or wonky teeth then it is in your best interests that you visit our dentist Wagga and find out about straightening your teeth sooner rather than later to avoid complications later on in life. By addressing misalignment issues of the teeth early on you can save yourself from pain, discomfort, dental health issues, many hours in the dentist chair and perhaps high dental fees in a few years. This is because crooked and wonky teeth are significantly more prone to developing cavities and tooth decay in comparison to a neatly aligned smile. There are many reasons for this. Crooked teeth are harder to brush. There are many nooks and crannies in which bacteria and food particles can linger, because your brush or floss cannot get into those spaces. This can lead to plaque build-up on your teeth. Bacteria in the plaque secrete acids which damage the enamel of your teeth and cause cavities and tooth decay. Bacteria in the plaque also creep underneath the gum line causing gum disease.
A treatment plan to suit you
By straightening your teeth early on in life this can be avoided. If your teeth are neat and straight they are easier to brush and floss. Speak to our dentist Wagga to find out about the different options that are available for you. It is important to remember that if you are suffering from cavities, tooth decay or gum disease then this will need to be treated before your teeth can be straightened. This is to avoid any damage to your teeth and for successful results.
You will undergo a thorough examination of your mouth when you visit our dentist Wagga to assess your dental health, but also to identify the issues that are affecting the alignment of your smile. Our dentist will then be able to decide which treatments are most suitable for you and, by taking your personal preferences into consideration, put together an individually tailored treatment plan to help straighten your teeth and promote better dental health for the future.
Teeth straightening has become increasingly popular over the last few decades and there are many different options available to meet your unique dental requirements and your personal choices. Our dentist can offer you a treatment that will suit your lifestyle and your budget, helping you to achieve a beautiful smile comfortably and conveniently. The length of the treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on how crooked or wonky your teeth are to begin with and whether or not you need any restorative dental treatment before you start. If you have healthy teeth and gums and suffer from minor misalignment issues with your teeth then you can expect to straighten your teeth in 6 to 12 months. If you need to undergo restorative dental treatment before you straighten your teeth and suffer from a complex orthodontic condition, then this can take 2 or 3 years. Teeth straightening is a long-term solution for addressing dental health issues and by speaking to our dentist at Kooringal Dental we can find the right treatment for you.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
