Dental Braces in Corio
Both standard and myofunctional orthodontics can reposition misaligned teeth, resulting in a great appearance and a correct bite. To achieve this outcome, our dentist in Corio may recommend traditional dental braces or some alternatives to braces that are either fixed or removable, such as invisible braces and Myobrace treatment.

Conventional Dental Braces
Conventional dental braces are suitable for people of any age group and are fixed to the front of the patient’s teeth. They consist of a series of metal brackets that are fixed to each tooth and an arch wire that goes through the slots in the brackets. The tensioned wire will slowly move the teeth into the preferred position.
The Invisalign system consists of clear and practically invisible braces that allow patients to attain the smile they want without anyone else realising they’re wearing braces. This is one of the preferred alternatives to braces for patients who don’t want to wear metal braces that stand out. Unlike conventional dental braces, these invisible braces use a series of removable and discreet aligners made from clear plastic.
Myofunctional orthodontic treatment is a brace-free orthodontic method designed to straighten a patient’s teeth and jaws. Myobrace therapy tackles a patient’s poor oral habits which are the most common cause of crooked teeth, and restores normal muscle function such as proper nasal breathing.
Myobrace treatment uses a series of appliances that are made to rectify the patient’s poor habits that hindered their dental development. It also provides a small amount of pressure to align the teeth to their desired position. The patient only has to wear the Myobrace appliance for two hours during the day and while sleeping at night. The duration of myofunctional therapy is determined by how old the patient is and how they respond to the treatment. At our clinic, we offer both Myobraces for adults and children.
