Orthodontics

Someone with a perfectly aligned smile exudes confidence. Often, people who needed orthodontics when they were younger weren’t able to get the help they required to straighten their teeth. Your teeth can also begin to shift out of place as you get older. Teenagers can also benefit from having braces.

If you or a member of your family is ready to look into orthodontics, the team at Campsie Family Dental can help. We’re pleased to offer traditional braces that give fantastic results.

Why Choose Traditional Braces?

Traditional braces boast a high retention rate, meaning you don’t have to worry about a relapse of the position of your teeth. Other orthodontic solutions don’t always give these great results.

The typical cases involving traditional braces take about two years to complete. Your situation may take less time or require a bit more, depending on the position of your teeth. We’ll let you know exactly what you can expect after your initial consultation with us.

Ceramic Brackets and White Wires Available

We understand that you may have reservations about wearing traditional braces. If you would like to have braces that are less distinctive, we have options for you. Rather than having metal brackets on your teeth, we provide white-coloured brackets. Your wire, rather than being silver, can be white so that it’s not as noticeable.

Extractions Performed Before Orthodontic Treatment

Some may require that teeth are extracted before embarking on orthodontic treatment. If so, we can perform your extraction comfortably, then allow the area to heal. When completed, you can get started on your orthodontics. We’ll walk you through each step of your procedure before we begin, answering all your questions along the way. You’ll choose to proceed, feeling fully informed.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should my child be screened for an orthodontic evaluation?

We recommend screening at age 7. By the time they reach this age, most children have several permanent teeth.

How much do braces cost?

The price of orthodontics vary, due to the severity of the malocclusion, type of appliance used, and length of treatment.

How old is too old for braces?

You’re never too old to benefit from an aligned smile. There may be some limitations, however, depending on your age.

Are there any foods I can’t eat while wearing braces?

Yes, you should avoid crunchy foods such as nuts, hard candy, and carrots as well as chips, biscuits, popcorn and gum.

Do I need to alter my oral hygiene routine when wearing braces?

Yes. Keeping your teeth and braces (or other appliances) clean requires some extra effort on your part. Your dentist will explain how to brush and floss properly, how often to brush and floss, and provide you with any other necessary instructions. Always be sure to follow your dentist’s dental hygiene recommendations to get the best results possible.
