Moorabbin, VIC: Captivate Dental has introduced orthodontics to assist patients in correcting bite irregularities, malocclusions, and jaw growth. The practice also helps patients with bad oral habits, speech problems, facial structure, bite defects, and those in need of intercepting other dental issues.
Patients get an orthodontic evaluation which consists of x-ray scans, bite assessment, and impression of the jaw and teeth. Besides adults, Captivate Dental offers orthodontic evaluation to children, which is key in assessing potential problems that can be treated by orthodontics.
In addition to evaluations, the dentist Moorabbin offers various treatments based on assessment and the patient’s preference. Invisalign is one of the treatment options available to patients with tooth irregularity and irregular bites. It uses a series of clear removable aligners (instead of wires and metal) to straighten the teeth slowly.
Like other treatments, such as tooth whitening, the trays are custom-made using 3D computer imaging technology to better fit and move teeth. Besides the technology, the platinum provider in Invisalign walks with the patient from the first placement until the final day. They answer questions patients may have regarding the treatment option, therefore bridging the knowledge gaps.
Alternatively, they can opt for metal braces, which, although visible, are smaller and less seeable. They are also comfortable for adults and children. The dentist includes dos and don’ts in the treatment plan, preparing patients on what to expect when wearing the appliance. Like in Invisalign treatment, the Captivate Dental utilises technology in every stage of treatment.
The dental office is also a leading practice for dental implants in Moorabbin, assisting patients with missing teeth and those interested in increasing their chewing abilities. Other candidates for dental implants include patients that wish to improve their speech, eat their favourite meal again, and enhance their facial look.
The dentist replaces the missing tooth right in the root to fix the jaw and allow the gum and bone to integrate. Besides restoring their smile and confidence, dental implants by Captivate Dental have a high clinical success rate and assist the patient in preserving bone and reducing the loss of gum tissue.
Besides dental implants and orthodontics, the dental office offers teeth whitening in Moorabbin to patients interested in improving their facial aesthetics. To break down discolouration, the dental office gives each patient a personalised service, from custom-made trays (to protect the gums from the bleaching agent) to removing plaque build-up. The least invasive service is also a quick, affordable, and easy way to improve their smile.
