It's a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is only for teenagers. Adult orthodontics is now popular in Australia, thanks to advances in clear orthodontic braces and aligners making it easier for people to straighten their teeth without worrying about how they look.
Orthodontics isn't just recommended for cosmetic reasons either. Crooked or misaligned teeth may also make it difficult to eat, talk or brush and floss your teeth, increasing your risk of dental problems.

Dentists may recommend orthodontic treatment for a number of reasons. These treatments use orthodontic braces, aligners or other appliances to gradually move the teeth into their desired positions over time. This can help to correct issues such as:
Orthodontic treatment may be chosen to improve the appearance of a smile or to treat a problem that's affecting health or quality of life.
Our dentists can tell you if you're a suitable candidate for orthodontic treatment, and we'll make sure you have a realistic idea of what to expect.
The ideal age for straightening teeth is 12 to 13 years old, when the permanent teeth and jaws are still developing and can be guided more easily.
However, thanks to recent advances in orthodontic systems, many older teenagers and adults can also benefit from orthodontic treatment. Modern braces and aligners are designed to be as discreet as possible, using tooth-coloured or transparent materials that are less visible in the mouth.
If you feel that you missed out on orthodontic treatment when you were younger, or the treatment was not completed successfully and you still have an orthodontic issue, book a consultation today to talk to a dentist in Sydney CBD.
Some people choose orthodontic treatment for aesthetic reasons, because they want to improve the appearance of their smiles. But having straight and properly aligned teeth can be important for health reasons too.

After our dentists have completed your orthodontic assessment, we'll discuss all the treatment options that are suitable for you.
Depending on your individual needs, orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to achieve the desired results. Faster results may be possible using the following systems:
If you prefer not to wear braces, Invisalign® aligners could be for you. These clear plastic aligners are designed to be less noticeable than traditional orthodontic braces. They fit comfortably over the teeth and can be removed for 1 to 2 hours per day when eating or cleaning your teeth.
Invisalign® can be suitable for adults with less severe orthodontic needs, but it may not be suitable if more straightening is needed. In many cases, Invisalign® treatment can take less than 1 year to complete.
Smilefast braces are designed for adults who want to straighten their teeth in a shorter time span than is usually possible with traditional braces. Smilefast treatment is often complete in just 6 to 9 months.
These clear braces are also less noticeable on the teeth compared to metal braces, allowing for a more subtle treatment.
Total costs for orthodontics at Sydney CBD Dental can range from $4000–$8000. This depends on how complex your case is, the orthodontic treatment you choose and other factors.
We'll provide you with an all-inclusive breakdown of orthodontic treatment cost after your initial consultation, so you'll know what to expect before agreeing to the treatment.
