Orthodontics Treatment

Orthodontics Treatment Melbourne

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Also known as orthodontia or dentofacial orthopaedics, this dental speciality is concerned with the diagnosis and prevention of jaw and tooth problems due to misalignment. This process involves bonding metal brackets using wires to your teeth temporarily. Our trained dentists can correctly diagnose and treat these issues in order to restore the function and appearance of your teeth.

Orthodontics in Tarneit can also correct several common bite problems, including crowding, overbite, under-bite, and excessive spacing. When your teeth are in their 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 or 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 can tailor dental braces at Tarneit Dental Care that’s right for your teeth and your budget.

The process we follow at Tarneit Dental Care:

Once you make an appointment with us, our team will conduct a full mouth check-up and take X-rays to determine the most fitting solution as per the position and condition of your teeth. OPG X-rays also help track your process right from the start. Next, our orthodontists will diagnose your case carefully to determine the size, angulation, quantity, and positioning of brackets; this also helps them find out the direction and application of force required to fit braces.

Next, we will have your dental braces in Tarneit fitted to your teeth using metallic wire. Generally, our dentist will recommend a monthly check-up to readjust braces as per changes in the position of your teeth. Adjustments are made until you are happy with the treatment results. At Tarneit Dental Care, we also provide retainers with instructions on use and aftercare to prevent relapse.

The Right Orthodontic 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 the preventative treatment in order to reduce or eliminate the need for braces later in life.

You never have to feel like it is too late, however, with our orthodontic team regularly working with adult patients. Orthodontics treatment in Tarneit can last anywhere from a few months to a few years, with early intervention often making the treatment quicker and more straightforward. We offer complete dental care with utmost compassion to our patients irrespective of their age.
