Orthodontic Options in Armidale

June 30, 2021
Posted By: Markham Street Dental

If you missed your chance for orthodontics as a kid, or if a previous treatment relapsed over the years due to a lost retainer, we would love to help.

Your dentist in Armidale, Dr Joseph Nyepetsi, offers orthodontic options to help patients achieve their smile goals and improve their oral health, and he would love to assist you as well.  

Orthodontics is about more than straight teeth. An aligned bite may also play a role in your future oral wellness.

Orthodontics with Your Armidale Dentist

In our dental clinic, we offer both tooth-coloured and metal braces. They are similar, but there are a few key differences. Both rely on brackets and wires to correct your orthodontic issues.

Tooth-coloured braces are the more discreet option because the guidewires and brackets are coloured to match your teeth.

Metal braces are also called traditional braces and may be sturdier for more severe orthodontic issues.

Your Orthodontic Consultation

Braces in Armidale start with a consultation in our dental clinic.

Dr Nyepetsi, your dentist near me, will talk to you about which option best fits your needs—based on exam findings and your personal smile goals—during this consultation. We also encourage your questions and are happy to address any concerns.

In some cases, Dr Nyepetsi may recommend pre-treatments before orthodontics to make you a better candidate for treatment.

Issues that Braces May Correct

Traditional and tooth-coloured braces can correct many orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite (upper teeth jutting over lower teeth)
  • Underbite (lower teeth jutting over upper teeth)
  • Crossbite (top and bottom teeth not lining up)
