When required Excellence in Dentistry provides early orthodontic care for children which helps monitor the growth and development of the teeth and jaw. Early evaluation helps to determine if, and when, your child will need orthodontic treatments.
The childhood and teenage years are a great time for orthodontic treatment. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by the age of seven years, and we encourage you to bring your child to our Brisbane city dental practice to evaluate their need for such orthodontic treatment.
Early treatment can often detect and correct potential problems before they become more serious, saving you and your Childs time and money.
Advantages of Early orthodontic treatment
Because a young child’s teeth have not finished erupting, we can address any problems at the earliest possible stage. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early orthodontic treatment can help to:
- Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
- Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
- Create facial symmetry by manipulating jaw growth
- Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
- Reduce the overall treatment time
When you bring your child to our practice, our dentist will be able to determine whether treatment is needed and when it should begin. If early orthodontic treatment is needed, we will create a personalised treatment plan for optimal results. For more information and to set up your child’s orthodontic consultation at our office, we invite you to call or visit us today!

Invisalign® clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you can keep living your life and caring for your teeth throughout treatment the same way you always have.

Other clear aligners* may attract attention with lower prices, but with Invisalign® treatment, you get the most advanced clear aligner system in the world that no other treatment system can offer.
Invisible / Lingual
Invisible braces or lingual braces are placed on the inside surface of the teeth. a truly invisible way to straighten teeth lingual braces are suitable for nearly all patients. We often see adults that present with relapsed alignment that requires quite minor repositioning and they do not wish to wear regular braces again.
Costs for a simple re-alignment can be very competitive compared to other ‘invisible techniques’ and the results are impressive.
These lingual braces can achieve the same quality of results that regular braces achieve but are technically demanding to place. They can be used for upper teeth, lower teeth or both, and offer an invisible solution for braces.

- What to do with Poking Wires or Wire Irritations with my braces.?
Should a wire start irritating your cheeks or gums, you can move the wire away from the irritated area by using a cotton swab. If you are unable to move the wire, try to cover the end of it with a small piece of cotton or wax to help relieve the irritation. If the wire is still painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilised in alcohol. Please contact us should you need to cut the wire or if you cannot resolve the wire irritation for an appointment.
- What to do when you have Discomfort with Braces and Orthodontic Treatment
In the first week your braces are fitted or wearing your aligners and sometimes after routine adjustments, you may feel a little soreness or discomfort. This is normal and you do not need to worry about it. We would recommend a non-aspirin pain reliever if your teeth are sore after adjustment appointments.
