Also known as orthodontia or dentofacial orthopedics, this dental speciality is concerned with the diagnosis and prevention of jaw and teeth problems due to misalignment. Our trained dentists are able to correctly diagnose and treat these issues in order to restore the function and appearance of your teeth. Orthodontic work can also correct a number of common bite problems, including crowding, overbite, underbite, and excessive spacing. When your teeth are in the correct natural position, it’s also much easier to prevent tooth decay and gum disease later in life.
Orthodontic treatment options
Orthodontics has evolved a lot over recent years, with more orthodontic treatments available than ever before. Here at Tarneit Dental Care, we offer a range of orthodontic services, including conventional fixed braces, clear/tooth coloured braces, invisible tooth aligners, and orthodontic fixed and removable appliances. Our extensive experience ensures correct diagnosis and access to the right treatment at the right time. No two mouths are identical and our specialists are able to tailor a solution that’s right for your teeth and your budget.
The right treatment at the right time
Orthodontic treatment can be carried out at any age, with most people starting when they are between 11 and 14 years of age. If you’re worried about misalignment problems in your children, we can perform checks at a younger age and carry out preventative treatment in order to reduce or eliminate the need for braces later in life. You never have to feel like it’s too late, however, with our orthodontic team regularly working with adult patients. Orthodontic treatment can last anywhere from a few months to a few years, with early intervention often making the treatment quicker and more straight forward.
