Orthodontic Treatments at Prime Care Dental
The Invisalign system aligns your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners.
These aligners are made of smooth, virtually invisible plastic worn over your teeth and gradually and gently shift your teeth into place.
A new aligner is provided approximately every 2 weeks until your treatment is complete.
ClearCorrect is an alternative to painful and bulky metal braces.
It is a patient-tailored treatment plan developed to correct imperfections such as straightness and spacing in the teeth.
This system utilises clear, BPA-free corrective plastic aligners to gradually pull your teeth into place.
Orthodontic Treatment: How Does It Work?
Orthodontic appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move the teeth, retrain muscles and influence the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws.
You may be a candidate for Invisalign (invisible braces), or you may need traditional braces; your Wodonga dentist will be able to guide and advise you as to what will work in your specific case.

At what age should I start my orthodontic treatment?
Generally, the best time is during childhood, but adults can have orthodontic treatment too—and more and more are doing so.
Age is less important than the number of teeth. For children, it may be needed to wait for enough teeth to come through before starting treatment.
What does the treatment involve?
The most important thing is to have a complete examination. This will usually involve examining your teeth, taking dental X-rays and making plaster models of your teeth.
Our dental team will then discuss what treatment is possible for you.
How long will the treatment take?
The duration of treatment depends on how severe the problem is, and it may take anything from a few months to 2 ½ years. Most people can be treated in 1 to 2 years.
