It is never too late to gain the smile of your dreams

Some of the treatments we offer our adult patients include, but are not limited to:

Traditional braces

Traditional braces have been around for a long time and are still being used because they are an effective and successful way to straighten teeth. Metal braces have evolved quite a bit since they were first introduced almost a hundred years ago.

Today’s braces are less bulky, less obvious and more comfortable than they once were. Depending on the severity of your case, metal braces treatment might last 12-24 months. Of course, the treatment time does depend on the condition of your teeth and jaws.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are quite similar to traditional braces as the brackets and wires are installed in the mouth and on the teeth to fix misalignments. However, lingual braces differ as they are almost entirely invisible as the brackets and wires are placed on the back of the teeth facing the tongue.

Because of the way lingual braces are placed, it allows for a more discreet option for orthodontic patients not willing to wear traditional braces.

Truline clear aligners

If your profession requires you to look a certain way (such as models, TV presenters, front-desk staff, PR manager etc.) then Truline may be for you. With clear aligner trays that are comfortable and removable, this treatment is designed to fit around your lifestyle and needs.

The Truline treatment is subtle in appearance and in its effects. Subtle because the clear aligners are practically invisible so no one will notice you are getting work done. Also the changes are made slowly: every 6 weeks you receive a new set of aligners to gently move your teeth into position.

Truline has a number of advantages over braces:

1. Freedom with your diet

Unlike braces, you can remove your aligners when you eat. This means that you can enjoy crunchy food that would otherwise harm your braces. It also means that you do not have to worry about getting any sticky foods stuck to your braces.

The only thing that you must do before replacing your aligners is brush and floss your teeth.

2. Your oral health

You can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth. The advantage of this is that you are able to maintain your optimal oral health during treatment. An added bonus is that you won’t have to visit the dentist so often because you can keep your teeth clean.

This treatment process does require you to wear the aligners as often as your dentist prescribes. Failure to do so could result in the treatment either taking longer than planned, or not being as effective.

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for Truline, talk to the team at Marriott & Hand in Melbourne to find out the best treatment for you.
