Orthodontics in Burwood

Our practice offers traditional braces for children and some adults case-by-case. Traditional orthodontics can efficiently correct everything from minor bite needs to more complex crowding and spacing concerns.

What to Expect

Girl smiling with bracesDuring your initial consultation, the dentist will evaluate your bite and discuss your concerns. Then we will send you an OPG, so that we can better evaluate your jaw and oral anatomy.

When you return after your imaging appointment, our dentist will discuss the findings, recommendations and pricing related to your unique situation. In more advanced circumstances, we may recommend a referral to a specialist. Otherwise, we will take a series of pictures of your teeth and plan for you to return for one final visit, where all brackets and wires are applied.

How Long Is the Treatment?

Most orthodontic treatments require anywhere between 6-18 months, depending on the individual’s needs. Each person is assessed case-by-case, as the anatomy needs vary.

Oral Hygiene and Home Care

Your oral hygiene is particularly important during orthodontic treatment. With fixed brackets and wires, you will need to take time to clean around each of your appliances properly. Our team will show you how to brush, floss, and which foods to avoid (as sticky or hard textures could damage your braces).

By straightening your teeth, you can reduce your risk of

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Dental emergencies
  • Irregular tooth wear

Payment Information

Before you get braces, we will review all pricing and financial information related to your smile’s needs. Most of our patients prefer to pay for their braces in quarterly instalments.
