South East Orthodontics is an ever growing, full-time practice in Berwick and has three orthodontists (Dr Kip Homewood and Dr Nishan Fernando) who have completed an extra three years of fulltime study in orthodontics to become Registered Specialist Orthodontists.
The orthodontists at the practice are all members of the Australian Society of Orthodontics and offer a wide range of treatment options with Invisalign being just one of those options.
Invisalign clear aligners can be a great option for improving the look of your smile.
At South East Orthodontics, the staff have lots of experience using this technology to give patients the straight, beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. Plus, because it’s so convenient, Invisalign won’t interfere with your daily life.
* Invisalign aligners are clear, discrete and effective at moving your teeth into their ideal positions.
* You don’t need to change all of your eating habits, because your aligners can be easily removed.
* Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable, smooth plastic, so you don’t have to worry about taking care of metal brackets.
* Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, reducing the risk of possible problems.
* Invisalign treatment is covered by most insurance providers, just like traditional braces.
A straight smile makes you look great and improves your self confidence but it also can help you keep the rest of your mouth healthy.
Correctly aligned teeth can decrease health issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems and increased wear on the tooth enamel.
South East Orthodontics offers interest-free flexible payment plans to make the process even easier.
Invisalign can be used by all age groups, so whether you want to improve your own smile or need more information about other orthodontic options, contact the practice on 9330 0702 or visit seortho.com.au for more information.
