Short Course Adult Orthodontics
Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self conscious or even embarrassed by their smile?
Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear metal braces for years or they are concerned that the necessary corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.
Things have changed; modern science, technology and innovation bring a choice of safe, effective and affordable short course orthodontic solutions that fit your lifestyle.
Dr Mark Peddey is a certified provider of Invisalign, Fast Braces and Six Month Smiles. All of these treatments differ from the traditional orthodontic services you may be familiar with. Each treatment system offers a unique solution for very different needs. All patients are reviewed regularly by Dr Mark Peddey throughout their treatment.
Tooth position is a critical factor in treatment planning for cosmetic or functional dental care. Orthodontics is the art and science of guiding teeth into their ideal position over a period of time. Dr Mark Peddey works closely with Melbourne’s leading specialist orthodontists when major orthodontic intervention is required. Minor orthodontic treatment is handled in house by Dr Peddey.

Basically straight, correctly aligned teeth not only look terrific and give you a fantastic smile, they are often healthier and easier to maintain. Cleaning and flossing becomes a breeze.
When left untreated, crooked teeth can compromise the health of your other teeth, contributing to premature tooth wear, making your teeth weaker and at risk of breaking. It is also difficult to clean between crooked teeth. Problems associated with poor oral hygiene can lead to periodontal disease. Both periodontal disease and premature tooth wear can lead to you losing your teeth. Periodontal disease is now also strongly linked with an increased risk of cardiac disease.
When assessing which orthodontic solution is best for you, Dr Peddey will always consider with you the option of comprehensive orthodontics with a specialist orthodontist. It is important that short course orthodontics is the most appropriate treatment for you and that you understand the difference between comprehensive orthodontics and short term orthodontics.
Straightening your teeth, whatever your age can significantly benefit your oral and general health, not to mention how it can change the way you feel about yourself, how you look, and how you are perceived by others. What are you waiting for?
