Orthodontics

At DNA Dental, we offer various types of orthodontic treatments to suit your individual needs. We have a passion for correcting smiles of all ages, whether it be children, teenagers or adults. We offer a range of treatment options such as; traditional metal braces, expander appliances, retainers and plates. Clear brackets and white wires can be used for aesthetic reasons. We also offer various discreet options such as; clear ceramic braces, Invisalign, and Clear Correct. We offer Rapid Smiles for those wanting a very quick treatment option. Orthopaedics can also be used to fix jaw problems so that teeth align in the ideal position.

BENEFITS OF EARLY TREATMENT (CHILDREN'S ORTHODONTICS):

In treating young people, our main focus is to ensure their facial development reaches its ideal potential. The Australian Society of Orthodontists, recommends that children from as young as 7 should have an orthodontic assessment. This allows us to evaluate existing teeth and jaw structure and to prepare for and prevent any problems that may arise in the future. Early treatment of the jaw and teeth is beneficial, for both ease of treatment and to reduce financial costs. A child’s jaw bones are still adaptable until their mid teens. While orthodontic treatment can be undertaken at any time, doing so while the bones are still adaptable means teeth are able to be moved faster and more effectively before the jaw bones have strengthened. Having correctly aligned teeth and jaws not only looks great, it also makes life more comfortable for your child.

ADULT ORTHODONTICS:

Many of our orthodontic clients are adults who are self conscious about their teeth and have put off fixing the problem for a long time. At DNA Dental, we offer a range of clear and discreet treatment options that can make the process a little less daunting. We of course also offer the traditional metal braces, which at times can be more cost effective. While many adults fear that orthodontic treatment will be painful, here at DNA Dental we aim to make the process as comfortable as possible.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
