Your safety is our utmost priority. In response to the Victorian Government’s lockdown, and as per the Australian Dental Association guidelines, appointments have been restricted.
There are certain procedures that can proceed. The patient’s that can still be seen will be contacted to confirm that their appointment will be going ahead as planned.
If your appointment doesn’t fall into this category, your appointment will be cancelled and we will be in touch to re-schedule as soon as possible.

Clear braces

TRADITIONAL TREATMENT MEETS MODERN TECHNOLOGY

Some of our patients prefer a tried and trusted treatment method - but don’t want their treatment on display. For those patients, clear braces are a wonderful option.

What are clear braces?

Clear braces use the same teeth straightening method as traditional metal braces. They use brackets bonded to the front surface of each tooth, thin metal archwires to connect the brackets, and small elastic bands to apply gentle pressure and assist tooth movement.

The difference with clear braces is that the brackets are made of translucent ceramic instead of metal, creating a more subtle and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

How do clear braces work?

At Modern Orthodontics, we go one step further for the benefit of our patients. Not only do we offer discreet clear braces, we offer self-ligating clear braces, which means the brackets don’t require elastic bands to help move your teeth.

With self-ligating braces, you won’t have to come in for as many adjustment appointments because your braces will self-adjust to some extent. You will only need to come to our practice every six to eight weeks so we can tighten your braces to encourage movement.

Do clear braces hurt?

After we have tightened your braces, you may experience a bit of discomfort. This will only last a couple of days and can be treated with over-the-counter pain relief. For some advice on what to eat during this time, check out our caring for your braces page.
