ORTHODONTICS

Orthodontics is specialised area of dentistry that focuses on the development, prevention, and correction of irregularities of your teeth, your occlusion (bite) and jaws. Any orthodontic problem can be classified as a malocclusion, or ‘bad bite’ and the following problems may be helped or minimised with careful orthodontic treatment:

  • missing teeth or extra teeth
  • misaligned, crooked, or crowed teeth
  • a disorder of the jaw joint
  • an underbite
  • an overbite
  • misaligned or incorrect jaw position

Types of orthodontic treatment we perform:

  • Early assessment – examinations around the age of 6 years old
  • Early intervention – treatment to reduce the potential of extensive orthodontic treatment during the teen years
  • Adolescent treatment
  • Adult treatment
  • Invisible braces (lingual orthodontics)

Adults and children alike can benefit from the positive outcomes associated with orthodontic treatment. Often referred to as an investment in your health, orthodontics can provide you with a greater chance of maintaining your smile for life. Having aligned teeth can improve your ability to keep your mouth and gums clean, there fore reducing the risk of decay or gum disease.
