Our goal at Knight Street Dentists in Shepparton is to ensure that you get the right orthodontic treatment that best suits you and your smile. Whether you’re a child or adult, we offer a range of braces treatments which we tailor to suit your current situation and future requirements.

Common orthodontic treatments include braces or Invisalign treatmentBoth these orthodontic treatments are designed to straighten your teeth in the best way possible. Braces have existed for a long time before Invisalign, and they consist of metal brackets attached to your teeth and tied together by wires. However, removing them is difficult, and they are very visible on your teeth. On the other hand, Invisalign is an invisible aligner that can be removed at any time you choose.

Metal Braces
Metal braces are one of the most common types of braces known worldwide, and in the past, they were very bulky and noticeable. Innovation and technology have made braces much faster, smaller, more comfortable, and more effective. They are trendy among children and adolescent patients.

Unlike Invisalign, which is removable, some parents prefer metal braces for their kids because they do not need to reminders to wear them all the time. However, metal braces require care and attention. While using braces you must maintain good oral hygiene throughout to ensure no further problems occur.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces work in a similar way as metal braces. But they are more discreet and less visible. Patients who do not think Invisalign is the best fit but still want to straighten their teeth efficiently and affordably choose ceramic braces. Sometimes, these patients are esthetically-driven adolescents and adults. You should also know that this type of braces are slightly larger than metal braces and can stain depending on diet.

Clear Aligners
Clear aligners (such as Invisalign) are so popular today because of the following:

  • Easily removable
  • Clear and transparent
  • Much faster than braces
  • Requires fewer appointments in some instances
  • Allows the patient to brush and floss easily.

Invisalign is the best option for patients who had braces when they were younger and needed a minor fixing, as well as for patients with mild to moderate dental problems like misaligned teeth, no jaw alignment problems, or gaps in their front teeth. Invisalign also has major limitations compared to braces when addressing certain dental issues or comprehensive treatments.

Our braces treatments generally take up to two years. During this period, we’ll arrange regular appointments for you to visit us for a check-up. Here, we’ll review and adjust your orthodontics, ensuring you’re on the best pathway to beautiful, straight teeth.

Most people report that the initial pain and discomfort associated with getting braces is manageable. After the braces are adjusted, you will likely experience some soreness and tenderness in your mouth as your teeth adjust to their new positions. Over time, however, this sensation will lessen as your teeth become accustomed to the pressure of the wires

The cost of braces can vary depending on the type and complexity of your treatment. It is important to speak with your dentist or orthodontist about the cost of your treatment so that you can plan accordingly.

Braces can be used to permanently straighten teeth, provided that you follow the treatment plan as prescribed by your orthodontist. It is important to wear a retainer after your braces are removed to ensure that your teeth stay in their new position

Avoiding certain types of food while wearing braces is important to ensure that your braces stay in good condition. In general, you should avoid hard and sticky foods such as popcorn, nuts, and candy. You should also avoid sugary drinks like soda or sports drinks, which can damage the wires and brackets.
