Braces and Invisible braces
Remember the days when teeth were removed before braces were put on for three years. Now there is an alternative. Treating children with functional appliances to assist in correct jaw development is a safe and effective option to traditional orthodontics. Dummies, thumb sucking and mouth breathing due to allergies can contribute to changing the shape of a child’s jaw and lead to crowding or incorrect positioning of adult teeth. Functional orthopaedics is a non-invasive, painless alternative to traditional braces and is now available at NovoDental. Give your children a head start and talk with us about the options for your precious little people.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom made, nearly undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you’ll have a new reason to smile. Invisalign uses the latest advances in computer 3-D technology to carefully translate your dentist’s instructions into a series of precise customised aligners. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks and gradually moves your teeth until you have reached your desired result – straight teeth. Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. It is also removable, so eating, flossing and brushing are no problem. If you want straight teeth, but don’t want the hassle of braces, give us a call to find out whether Invisalign is right for you. For more information about Invisalign, visit www.invisalign.com
