Adult Orthodontics in Dee Why

Dr Riann consulting with adult patientSome adults didn’t have access to orthodontic treatment that they may have needed in their younger years. Dr Riaan Foot had orthodontic procedures as an adult and appreciates that it’s a major decision to decide to move forward with straightening your smile.

The Latest in Orthodontics

At Wavescape Orthodontics, you’ll benefit from the latest technology and have the most unobtrusive, aesthetically pleasing appliances available to you.

The outcomes that are desired by adult patients can vary drastically, influenced by factors such as lifestyle, treatment time, aesthetics and costs. We’ll take plenty of time to discuss your specific wishes and needs, then tailor a solution that matches. All pros and cons of each option will be discussed with you so that you can make the best decision for yourself.

Complex Bite Treatments

Occasionally, a bite can’t be fixed using only orthodontics. Teens and adults alike with, for example, a significant jaw discrepancy may need a surgical procedure along with orthodontics to align the facial and bone structures. Older patients who have a large amount of restorations and worn teeth might require the services of a prosthodontist to do crowns, veneers or dental implants prior to receiving orthodontics. In such cases, we’re happy to refer you to other professionals and work in a team approach to get you the greatest benefit.

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

Adults can choose from the following:

  • Clear aligners: We offer several options including Invisalign and Spark Clear Aligners, all of which are highly effective. These aligners are comfortable, discreet, and can be removed before eating, as well as social engagements.
  • Lingual or invisible braces: These clear braces are affixed to the inside surface of teeth, rather than the front. They’re not visible from the outside, so adults can straighten their smile discreetly.
  • Traditional braces: Not just for kids and teens, traditional braces are a tried-and-true way of straightening the teeth.
