Traditional Braces

Phung Tran Dental Group provides a range of affordable dental procedures including general dentistry, general cosmetic dentistry, and advanced dental care.

We all want to have that perfect smile but for some of us, we need help perfecting it. A perfect smile isn’t the sole reason to have braces fitted, but it is an added benefit. Traditional braces are used to straighten crooked teeth, jaw realignment, or for more complex orthodontic issues. Phung Tran Dental Clinic offers a range of orthodontic solutions including conventional braces (ceramic and metal) and traditional braces. Recent years have seen an increase in popularity for braces for adults, so it’s not too late if you want to correct your dental issues.

What are braces?

Braces are an orthodontic device used to reposition teeth. Traditional braces are used to train your teeth and correct orthodontic problems. Not only do braces straighten your teeth, but they can also improve your overall dental health and relieve pressure on your teeth, jaw and supporting joints and muscles. Phung Tran Dental Clinic offers both fixed and removable conventional braces. Fixed braces are wire brackets individually attached to your teeth connected by wires and bands. This style of braces offer a more precise fit and are usually used to solve more complex orthodontic issues. In contrast, removable braces are, as the name suggests, completely removable and offer a more flexible solution to your dental needs. Removable braces can be removed before eating and as such, there is no need to avoid chewy or crunchy foods. During your consultation at Phung Tran Dental Clinic, we will go through a range of options with you to ensure you are getting the right kind of braces to suit your needs.

Why would you need braces?

You may need braces to solve a variety of dental problems. The most common of these problems are overcrowding, spacing issues and the correction of overbites and underbites. In some situations, conventional braces can help repair tooth damage and can also provide long-term relief from jaw and facial pain. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of adults seeking support for their orthodontic problems. No longer strictly the domain of teenagers, Phung Tran Dental Clinic also offers traditional braces for adults. After a thorough examination, our dentists will recommend a course action to suit your specific dental needs.

What happens during my procedure?

What happens after my procedure?

It may take some time to get used to your new braces. After your first fitting, your braces will feel tight and you may find it difficult to talk and eat as easily as you did before. This is completely normal and you’ll become used to your new braces before you know it. If your braces continue to feel tight or cause any pain, please contact Phung Tran Dental Clinic and arrange a follow-up appointment. Even if your procedure went smoothly, our friendly staff will still organise a check-up, just to make sure your new braces are working effectively. Our staff will also provide you with guidelines for proper dental care including instructions on how you can help keep your braces clean and working effectively. We will also provide adjustments and tightening when needed. Contact Phung Tran Dental Clinic in Footscray today to discuss your options for dentures or alternative dental solutions today.
