What are the benefits of adult braces in Canberra?

It is not uncommon for people to have traditional braces installed during adulthood. Teeth misalignment problems may occur later in life which then may warrant the installation of braces. There are also some with unresolved misalignment issues or bite problems that were not addressed during childhood or adolescent years.

Traditional metal braces guarantee perfectly aligned teeth over time. Whilst the motivation of having adult braces installed may be purely aesthetic, enhanced confidence and self-esteem are significant side benefits.

Having straight teeth also prevents the incidence of dental and periodontal disease. Teeth are easier to clean and maintain once crooked teeth are aligned by adult braces. Crooked teeth are also a known cause of loosened teeth, which can then greatly affect the way people eat, talk, and smile altogether.

What are lingual braces?

One orthodontic appliance solution that is being considered by many are lingual braces. Unlike traditional braces that are worn at the anterior portion of the teeth, lingual braces are placed at the back of the teeth.  Lingual or invisible braces are the preferred option among those who are conscious about their appearance or those who want to undergo teeth alignment in a more discreet manner.

When compared alongside traditional metal braces, invisible braces are more expensive. Lingual braces in Canberra usually costs between $6000 and $9000 for a standard 18-month treatment.
