Braces Hoppers Crossing, Point Cook, Werribee & Tarneit

Our experienced Dentists have successfully provided Braces to Hoppers Crossing, Point Cook, Werribee & Tarneit residents for many years.

Traditional braces are the gold standard of Orthodontic treatment. At Aqua Smiles Dental, we retain the gold standard and also incorporate the latest innovative concept of individualised Orthodontics to every case we treat.

If you're looking for a discreet alternative to tradition Braces, our Invisalign option may be suited to you.

What is Braces?

Braces are a popular Orthodontic procedure that straightens your teeth and corrects your bite with the use of an appliance that's specific to your needs.

Braces involve the temporary bonding of metal brackets onto the surface of your teeth. These brackets are connected by a metal wire and through periodic tightening and adjustments, the combination of forces acting on the brackets and wires will gradually shuffle your teeth into the proper positions.

Traditional Braces are considered the gold standard of Orthodontic treatment. At Aqua Smiles Dental, we retain the gold standard and also incorporate the latest innovative concept of "individualised Orthodontics". This means that instead of utilising a "one size fits all" approach, we specifically customise and design every single bracket to your tooth. This advanced Orthodontic tool ensures that your treatment is fast, effective and efficient.

What are the advantages of Braces?

Braces not only straighten your teeth but they can also greatly improve your smile and oral health, some key benefits include:

    • Suitable for all treatment types
    • The best option for complex cases
    • Treatment time may be faster
    • Improved patient compliance

Braces Treatment Process

1. Book a consultation

We have been providing Braces to Hoppers Crossing, Point Cook, Werribee, Tarneit and surrounding suburbs for many years. Make a booking online or call us on 03 9748 7271 to set up a consultation date. We'll go through your treatment plan, costs and answer any questions you may have.

2. X-rays and Moulds

Once you've decided to go ahead with treatment, we'll organise an OPG X-ray for you and create an impression of your teeth which, will help us formulate the best course of treatment for you. We'll also take some pictures of your teeth and jaw so we can visually track your progress from beginning to end.

3. Diagnosing your case

This is where the concept of individual Orthodontics comes in, our highly experienced Dentists will review your medical history, x-rays and teeth impression to diagnose your case. During this step, we will formulate a unique treatment plan tailored to you. As part of your treatment plan, we will determine the:

  • Quantity of brackets required
  • Size and angulation of the brackets
  • Position of brackets
  • Length of wire
  • Width of wire
  • Direction of force required
  • Application of force required
4. Fitting your Braces

Once we've diagnosed your case and have prepared a detailed treatment plan, we will call you in to have your Braces fitted to your teeth.

5. Monthly adjustments

Generally, we will schedule monthly appointments with you to adjust your Braces. During these appointments we will apply the necessary force to the Braces to shift your teeth to their correct positions.

6. Treatment conclusion

When treatment is concluded and both you and the Dentist are happy with the results, we'll remove your Braces and you'll be able to enjoy a beautiful smile with straight teeth.

7. Aftercare treatment

Our team will provide you with your retainer, instructions of use and aftercare information. Wearing your retainer is important to ensure there is no relapse and shifting of your teeth post Braces treatment.
