The best options in Invisible Braces for Melbourne based Adults - interested in revitalising their smile for employment opportunities and social mobility

The world of orthodontics in Melbourne is changing, and teeth straightening techniques have certainly improved over the past few years! As one of the best orthodontists in Melbourne, Dr Wexler is fearless wen introducing new treatments that he believes produce the results he desires. Frequently he is among the first orthodontists in Melbourne to offer new oral products and treatments designed to effectively and efficiently straighten teeth, evening out the smile while also giving young adults complete confidence in their appearance.

A wide range of options are available through Dr Geoffrey Wexler’s orthodontic clinics in Melbourne, including clear braces which are barely noticeable, and lingual braces fitted behind teeth which are completely hidden from view. When it comes to dental care for young adults, it’s important to find an orthodontic specialist with experience in adult braces to make sure there are a variety of suitable options to choose from.

Options for Young Adult Braces in Melbourne

As a leading orthodontist in Melbourne, Dr Wexler is able to offer young adults a huge choice of effective and discreet options for straightening teeth. Some of these options are outlined below:

  • Clear Aligners

    Clear aligners are made from transparent, flexible plastic, and, while not quite as powerful as regular braces (they are best used for mild to moderate imperfections such as crowding and small spacing), they are generally more comfortable, as they are custom made for each individual. The advantage of clear aligners is that they are removable to make cleaning easier. Some are even worn only at night, making them ideal for young adults who can’t — or don’t want to — wear the aligner throughout the day.

    Invisalign and SureSmile aligners are made to fit closely around the teeth, gently placing a little pressure on problematic teeth while encouraging them to move into the correct position.

    SureSmile and Invisalign as two of the most reputable brands are among the best solutions when it comes to clear aligners. But when it comes to SureSmile vs. Invisalign, which is better? The truth is that both are very similar, so it’s worth speaking to an orthodontist who can help you make the right decision. Ask your orthodontics specialist for an Invisalign brochure to find out more.

  • Damon Braces and more traditional orthodontic braces

    When people think of braces –they are usually thinking of Damon braces. Damon braces are the classic orthodontic braces that most people recognise as teeth braces. What they do not realise is that Damon braces have improved and now come in a number of varieties providing varying degrees of comfort and invisibility. They are still one of the most trusted orthodontic braces on the market providing very reliable results at a cost effective price – which is why the have gained their solid reputation.

    In some cases, young adults may find it more effective to wear regular braces rather than removable aligners, especially if their misalignment is slightly more substantial and requires a stronger oral product that provides more disciplined correction. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean wearing the big, obvious and ‘ugly’ braces of the past. Melbourne orthodontist Dr Wexler offers Damon braces for his Toorak and Frankston patients which are more discreet than traditional braces, as they are not fixed using metallic brackets but employ a more subtle approach using clear plastic elastic o-rings making the overall effect much more subtle.

    Many young adults are now showing a preference for these types of invisible braces, such as Empower, which features a clear design and improved arch wires to minimising the appearance of the braces.

    Empower braces vs. Damon braces: which is better? That’s a tricky question to answer, as Melbourne orthodontist Dr Wexler offers Damon clear braces in addition to standard Damon braces. These clear alternatives are very similar to Empower braces, and are barely noticeable on the teeth and come in as a very cost effective solution for those that require treatment for more visible problems.

  • Lingual Braces - completely cosmetically invisible braces for those who care about their appearance

    Lingual braces have been around since the 1980s, but they are not usually made available by many Melbourne orthodontists due to the extra training that is required to fit them, consequently they are not widely known. Therefore, it is necessary to find orthodontic experts in this area, such as Dr Wexler, a Melbourne orthodontist with clinics in both Frankston and Toorak. Work in much the same way as traditional braces, Lingual braces are fitted behind the teeth, rather than in front consequently are completely hidden from view.

    Lingual braces can take some getting used to, and they may take slightly longer to correct the position of teeth than regular braces. So if you’re looking for fast treatment times from your braces regular braces may work quicker. However, many young adults find the aesthetic and hygienic advantages of lingual braces outweigh the disadvantages — as teeth can be cleaned as normal - lingual braces are completely invisible when you smile. Young adults who are very conscious about the appearance of braces may find lingual braces their best option despite the slightly longer treatment time to get the best results from their orthodontic treatment.

The Cost of orthodontic Braces

How much do braces cost in Melbourne? It’s important to remember that SureSmile costs, Damon braces costs, and Invisalign costs will vary from practice to practice, so if you’re looking for budget-friendly options it’s sensible to find an orthodontist offering suitable prices, or better yet repayment plans that make treatment costs easily achievable.

Some braces cost more than others -Damon clear braces cost will typically be higher than the cost of regular Damon braces, for example, due to the extra cosmetic advantages of the clear version. However, similar products and treatments will generally be around the same. Consider SureSmile vs Invisalign, for example. Both of these treatments are often somewhere in the region of $6000 to $9000.
