Let’s explore how everything you need to know about dental braces Perth & Como and find out if this solution is the key to your oral woes.

What are Dental Braces?

Dental braces are orthodontic devices used to straighten and align teeth. They usually consist of brackets bonded to your teeth, and wires connected to each bracket which provide a small amount of tension.

This gentle, continuous pressure slowly shifts your teeth into the desired position. Dental braces can help correct bite problems and improve aesthetics.

Types of Dental Braces

Need braces? Here are your options: three highly effective types of dental braces that each have their own advantages.

Types of Dental BracesTypes of Dental Braces

Metal Braces: Traditional and Time-Tested

Metal braces are the most common type of braces and have a long track record of successful results. They use metal brackets bonded to the teeth and an archwire to gradually shift teeth into place.

Modern metal braces are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable than older versions. You may even have options for coloured ligatures (the small rubber bands) to add a bit of personality.

  • Cost-effective: Generally the most affordable option for orthodontic treatment.
  • Durable: Strong and resistant to breaking.
  • Effective: Can correct even complex misalignment issues.

Ceramic Braces: Subtle and Effective

Ceramic braces use tooth-coloured or clear brackets, making them blend in better with your natural teeth. The arch wires may still be metal, but they are less prominent.

  • Less noticeable than metal braces.
  • Effective for treating most orthodontic problems.
  • Good option for adults or teens concerned with aesthetics.

Invisalign: Virtually Invisible

Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are changed out approximately every two weeks.

  • Extremely discreet appearance.
  • Removable for eating and brushing, promoting better oral hygiene during treatment.
  • Comfortable with no wires or brackets to irritate the mouth.

How Much Do Dental Braces Cost Perth?

The full dental braces treatment process starts from $5,000. Total cost will vary depending on the ype of braces you choose, the fees your dentist charges, and the complexity of your specific oral issues.

Traditional metal braces are generally the most affordable, while ceramic braces and Invisalign tend to be more expensive. Book an appointment with one of our friendly dentists. We’ll be able to give you an idea of what dental braces Perth & Como will cost for your specific needs.

The Dental Braces Process

Dental ProcessDental Process

Interested in getting dental braces for yourself or your child? Here’s what to expect once we kick off the process.

Consultation and Examination

The first step is to meet your orthodontist or dentist to discuss your goals and assess your needs. They’ll examine your teeth, bite, and jaw, sometimes including X-rays or digital scans.

Your orthodontist will explain if braces are right for you, discuss your options, and outline your treatment options with estimated costs. This is your chance to ask questions and voice concerns.

If you choose Invisalign, your dentist will use our high-tech iTero 5D Element scanner to capture digital impressions of your teeth.

You can then set a date for the application of your braces or the collection of your Invisalign aligners.

Fitting Your Braces

When you’re in the chair for traditional braces fitting, your dentist will begin by cleaning and polishing your teeth. This makes it easier to apply the adhesive for your braces.

Metal or ceramic brackets are carefully bonded to each tooth. A thin metal wire is threaded through each bracket and secured in place, applying gentle pressure.

If you’re picking up Invisalign aligners, your dentist will make sure they’re a good fit, have no sharp pieces, and are comfortable.

Regular Adjustments

You'll have checkups every few weeks to monitor progress and for the orthodontist to tighten wires or upgrade your aligner.

These adjustments gently guide your teeth closer and closer to being straight. Appointments are usually quick, and discomfort is typically mild and temporary.

Dental Braces Care and Maintenance

Your dentist will give you specific care instructions for your braces when you leave our Perth dental clinic.

Dental Maintenance

Brushing with Braces

Use The Right Tool
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush designed for orthodontic care or one recommended by your dentist.

Twice a Day (Minimum)
Brush thoroughly after each meal and snack. Food can easily get caught in braces, increasing the risk of decay and gum problems.

Take Your Time
Each brushing session should last at least two minutes (twice a day).

Angled Approach

  • Angle the brush down towards the gum line to clean above the brackets.
  • Angle up from the bottom to clean below the brackets.
  • Brush the chewing surfaces directly.

Don't Forget the Back
Carefully clean the inside surfaces of your teeth, too.

Flossing with Braces

Floss Once a Day
Aim to floss thoroughly at least once daily, ideally before bedtime.

Use Special Tools

  • Floss threaders help guide the floss under the arch wire.
  • Orthodontic flossers have a stiffer end to make threading easier and a spongy section for cleaning around brackets.

Step by Step:

  • Thread the floss through the threader or under the arch wire between two teeth.
  • Gently slide the floss up and down the sides of both teeth, going below the gum line.
  • Repeat for each gap between teeth.

Food Restrictions

Avoid biting down on hard, very chewy, or sticky foods. They can easily damage your braces (and your teeth).

Dental Braces FAQs

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Braces?

The best way to know for sure if you're a good candidate for teeth braces is to book an appointment with your dentist. However, you're probably a good candidate if you have:

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Bite problems

Do Braces Hurt?

In most cases, mildly. You may experience soreness or pressure for a few days after braces are placed or tightened. This is due to the teeth starting to move.

Most people describe the feeling as a dull ache or tenderness. The soreness typically subsides within a few days.
