Considering orthodontic treatment? Making the decision to go ahead with orthodontic treatment can be quite a scary one. But with the potential to transform your smile and transform your life, it’s well worth considering.

It may be hard to push past the initial anxieties that come with the perceived cost, discomforts and visual worries; but it’s important to look at the bigger picture…

The benefits of a straight and healthy smile are NUMEROUS!

Visual & Psychological – Let’s face it, first impressions are everything, and a nice smile can make or break a first impression. Having a beautiful smile can build internal confidence and reap external benefits. Everybody deserves to wear a beautiful and healthy smile.

Physiological – As orthodontic treatment is usually undertaken with visual motivations, the physiological benefits are often overlooked. Having a correctly straightened smile means you are less prone to cracks, chips or causing any further dental damage to your teeth. It is also favourable for chewing, digestion and subsequently places less strain on your jaw and neck muscles.

Cost Benefits – There is no denying that the initial costs involved with getting orthodontic treatment can be a little daunting. In many cases though, the decision can prove to be a long term cost-saving process. Correctly aligning and fixing a smile now will help avoid the need for further extensive and expensive dental treatment.

Early intervention orthodontics will ensure your child is on the best possible path to all of the above listed benefits. A smile to compliment a happy and healthy lifestyle.

Orthodontic treatment is not just for children though. If you think you are too old for orthodontic treatment you are wrong! More and more adults are now undertaking orthodontic treatment to achieve the beautiful smile they’ve gone their whole life without.

There are now a number of modern orthodontic treatments available for adults who wish to correct their smile discreetly. Truline is one of these…

Truline Clear aligners Melbourne

Collage

Truline is an innovative orthodontic treatment method. Using 3D scanning technology to create a number of invisible/removable aligners, Invisalign treatment gradually adjusts the alignment of your teeth to the desired position.

Truline is also the perfect ‘discreet’ treatment option.

  • It’s virtually invisible
  • It’s comfortable
  • It’s removable

When considering orthodontic treatment, it’s important to consult a dental professional. Why? You want to ensure you are being prescribed only the most appropriate and suitable treatment for your needs.

While Truline may be the perfect treatment option for some, it won’t be the most suitable treatment for everyone.

Traditional braces Melbourne

Conventional metal braces are able to address the overall function of your smile. They may be the most suitable solution to best repair a smile to a natural healthy positon. While traditional braces may not be as convenient as other discreet options, they are certainly lighter, smaller and more discreet than ever before.
