How they’re different: These braces are truly invisible compared to aligners.

Who can benefit?: Anyone looking to straighten their smile inconspicuously!

Top benefits: They can effectively correct crowding problems.

Considerations: They are limited when it comes to correcting bite issues, such as open bite.

Who can benefit?: Anyone looking to straighten their smile discreetly!

Top benefits: Because they’re removable, you can eat what you want and maintaining oral hygiene is effortless.

How it’s different: Myobrace differs by focusing on correcting the underlying myofunctional habits that contribute to malocclusion instead of just realigning teeth like traditional braces.

Who can benefit?: Children with developing dental and jaw alignment issues can benefit most.

Top benefits: It helps correct poor oral habits, guides proper jaw development, and can improve overall dental health while potentially reducing the need for future orthodontic treatment.

Considerations: Myobrace is best suited to children aged 3 to 15.

Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

Do you worry that you are too old to straighten your teeth? Or are you concerned that your teeth and jaw shape affect your health? Did you know that narrow jaw arches can cause breathing problems and sleep disorders?

Did you know that approximately 25% of orthodontic patients are now adults? You are never too old for orthodontics. If you are unhappy with your personal appearance, Dr Sally Farhandi (Dentist) and her team can provide adult orthodontic care in Brisbane to help you enjoy a healthier, more beautiful smile.

We want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach – no matter your age. Our dentist offers a number of orthodontic treatments and is happy to help you find the one that matches your personal needs and desires.

Treatment for Teenagers

Orthodontic treatment for teenagers is also available at our comfortable, friendly practice. We can help you find the orthodontic solution that fits your needs, ensuring our teenage patients achieve straight, beautiful smiles with the right orthodontic services designed around their active lifestyles.

There are several benefits to addressing orthodontic needs during the teen years rather than putting off treatment until later. These benefits often include:

  • Flexible bones, hence shortened treatment time
  • Reduced need for tooth extraction
  • The ability to preserve space for any teeth and provide room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Restored facial symmetry and aesthetics by stimulating jaw growth

Early Child Orthodontics

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. We recommend that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by the age of eight years, and we encourage you to bring your child to our Brisbane CBD dental practice to evaluate their potential need for such orthodontic treatment.

Early treatment can often detect and correct potential problems before they become more serious, saving you and your child 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 today!

What to Expect At Your First Appointment

During your first consultation, we will discuss with you your potential treatment options, and go over the pros and cons of each option so that you can make an informed decision about your orthodontic care. We can then determine the appropriate time to commence your treatment plan.

Following your appointment, we will provide you with a complete clinical diagnosis and our findings, and a detailed plan outlining your treatment, goals, and the estimated cost of your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Invisalign aligners, and how do they work?

Invisalign aligners are clear, removable devices that gently move teeth into place. Custom-made for each patient, they offer a discreet alternative to braces by using transparent aligners that are nearly invisible. They come in different packages hence we can address mild to severe issues in a cost cost effective manner.

What are lingual braces, and how do they differ from traditional braces?

Lingual braces are affixed to the back of the teeth, hidden from view. Like traditional braces, they address various alignment issues but remain discreet as they are not visible from the front.

What is Smilefast, and how is it different from other treatments?

Smilefast is a quick orthodontic solution using ceramic brackets and white coated wires to correct mild-to-moderate misalignment in 6-9 months. It’s ideal for those seeking faster results compared to traditional braces.

What is Myobrace, and how does it benefit children’s orthodontic development?

Myobrace is a preventative treatment for kids using removable devices and exercises to correct poor oral habits and support jaw development, reducing the need for future orthodontic care.

How do I choose the right orthodontic option?

Selecting the right option depends on your orthodontic needs, goals, lifestyle and budget. Schedule a consultation with Dr Sally for a personalised recommendation. She has a special interest in orthodontic treatment options and possesses substantial experience.
