Orthodontics Is the Most Effective Way to Visibly Straighten Your Teeth
Are your teeth crooked?
Do you hide your teeth when you smile? When you laugh?
Orthodontic treatment can not only straighten your teeth but it can improve the function of your teeth as well.
Did you know that crooked can affect the rest of your oral health? Three health benefits of straight teeth are:
1. Healthier teeth and gums
If your teeth are overcrowded, too widely spaced or crooked it can lead to swollen, red gums and these are signs of gum (periodontal) disease. However, if your teeth are properly aligned then your gums fit properly around your teeth which create a stronger and healthier defence against potential gum disease issues.
2. Better jaw alignment
When your teeth are crooked they can negatively affect your bite. This can lead to problems with your jaw joints and muscles which then lead to further problems. A mouth full of straight teeth can save you from a lot of jaw-related problems down the track.
3. Your Overall Health
Your teeth and gums tell people a lot about your overall health.
Did you know that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults? By maintaining straight teeth and optimal oral hygiene you are helping prevent gum disease. In recent studies gum disease has been linked to such severe illnesses as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, chronic kidney disease and even Alzheimer’s.

At our dental practice in Karalee we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments from traditional braces to more modern clear braces. This allows us to give you the best orthodontic option for your unique lifestyle and budget.
Modern orthodontic treatments sometimes involve both fixed and removable appliances. However, what appliance you use will depend on what you need, what your desired outcome is and the condition of your teeth and jaws.
Once orthodontic treatment has been complete, you will need to wear a retainer (a removable appliance) to hold the teeth and jaws in their newly aligned position. This retainer must be worn for at least a year in order to prevent the teeth from shifting back into their previous position.
