We have been delivering Invisalign® and orthodontic treatments to our patients for more than 20 years. Withers Dental aims to offer the best general practice orthodontic treatment and care. Each case is personalised to achieve the best possible outcome.

Dentists no longer indiscriminately remove teeth at the expense of the patient’s profile. They consider the lip support provided by the front teeth, the aesthetics, function and health of the whole face.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality orthodontic care for our patients, with consideration also given to the needs and wishes of the individual. We are passionate about, and derive immense satisfaction from, the stunning, life-changing improvements we achieve with our patients. This enthusiasm drives us to continue to keep abreast of cutting-edge techniques and technologies.

Attention to detail sets us apart. We aim to exceed your expectations and are uncompromising in our desire to help you achieve the results you want.

CAN INVISALIGN OR BRACES BENEFIT YOU?

Invisalign and dental braces straighten crooked teeth, align the upper and lower jaws, improve the aesthetics of smiles and faces and relieve pressure on joints. Tooth alignment can help alleviate or prevent problems such as decay, gum disease, bone destruction and tooth loss.

The ideal age for conventional orthodontic treatment ranges from three to 12. The goal is not only to create straight, well-aligned teeth but to improve the facial profile that will remain stable throughout adolescence and adulthood.

Dr Andrew Withers will discuss the most suitable treatment, whether it be Invisalign or braces. He will also consider any activities the child participates in before making recommendations.

TYPES OF TREATMENT

Withers Dental offers a variety of treatment options from the latest advances in braces to discreet almost invisible alternatives like Invisalign. Modern braces are highly technical pieces of engineering with heat activated nickel-titanium wires which we fabricate for each patient. Many adults choose orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth rather than shaving or preparing them for crowns or veneers.

WHAT IS INVISALIGN?

Invisalign® offers an alternative to traditional metal braces. It fits comfortably in your mouth and easily around your lifestyle.

Invisalign is the modern approach to straightening teeth using clear plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into position. Each new aligner brings your teeth closer to the perfect smile.

One of the best things about Invisalign is that it is virtually invisible – hence the name! There are no brackets or wires, so you can maintain your great smile throughout the process.

These are just some of the benefits of Invisalign:

  • No braces – just a clear plastic coating that sits over your teeth
  • Almost invisible, so you won’t feel self-conscious
  • Easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy
  • Can be removed for eating, brushing, sports or special events
  • Requires fewer visits to the dentist than braces
  • Features a compliance indicator on the retainer that keeps track of ‘wear time’

BRACES TOOWOOMBA

WHAT ARE BRACES?

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment metal wires (archwires) are inserted into orthodontic brackets which are made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material. The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into the desired positions. Additional components including removable appliances (plates), head gear and expansion appliances may also be used to move teeth and the jaw bone.

Withers Dental uses Ormco Insignia® which combines the efficiency of digital smile design with the precision of patient-specific appliances.

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT TOOWOOMBA

The initial consultation involves a discussion about your treatment options. We will give you an information pack regarding what you should expect from your treatment and an estimate of fees. This appointment is complimentary.

Before embarking on your journey towards a new smile, a collection of records is required. Insignia® Braces records include two types of impressions – photographs and (two) x-rays (OPG/Lat Ceph). If you choose Invisalign®, these records include a CAD/CAM 3D imaging system scan, photographs and (two) x-rays (OPG/Lat Ceph).

Once your personalised kit arrives (approximately four to six weeks, depending whether you have chosen Invisalign or braces), it will be inserted accordingly. Braces involve bonding brackets to each tooth. The first aligner will be inserted with the Invisalign option.

You will be required to return approximately every six weeks to check the progress. These visits are an essential part of your treatment and the cost is included in the initial fee. Your teeth may feel tender for a brief period; this means your teeth have started to move and you are closer to that perfect smile.

Typical treatment times can vary from six months to two-and-a-half years, depending on the complexity. Clear night-time retainers must be worn once your orthodontic treatment is finished to prevent the teeth returning to their original positions. At Withers Dental we also place bonded retainers behind the front teeth to ensure they do not return to their original positions. These are invisible. Both your first set of clear retainers and bonded retainers are included in your initial fee. Should you require repairs or replacements, please contact our reception team.

We offer a complimentary whitening treatment to complete your journey towards a perfect smile.

*NB This treatment does not include general maintenance such as examinations, cleaning and fillings.

UNDERSTANDING THE RISKS

All forms of medical and dental treatments, including orthodontics, carry potential risks and limitations. Fortunately, these complications are infrequent in orthodontics and tend to be of minor consequence.

Nevertheless, it is important to consider all potential risks and limitations before undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Please note: All invasive or surgical procedures carry risks.  Some people may not be suitable candidates for this procedure.  Your dentist will discuss all risks prior to commencing any treatment.
