These days, braces aren’t what they used to be. Forget big and clunky. Today’s metal and clear braces are barely there. So getting braces needn’t mean losing your confidence. We’ll work with you to find a solution that delivers a balance of discreet looks, comfort and results.
- Designs are super-streamlined compared to traditional braces
- Smaller, stronger materials means less intrusion and improved comfort
- Advanced design and superior materials means reduced treatment periods
The best way to decide if braces – or any of our other treatment options – are for you is to book an appointment with one of our specialist orthodontists.
For many, one of the biggest reasons for avoiding the steps towards a great smile is dealing with unwanted attention to traditional braces while you’re undergoing treatment. Invisalign® is the answer, offering comfort, convenience and confidence.
- There are no brackets to attach and no wires
- Clear aligners are virtually invisible
- Smooth, comfortable plastic aligners
- Aligners are removable for easy cleaning
- No food restrictions
As Platinum providers we have years of experience using Invisalign. If you want to know if you are suitable for this type of treatment it is best to contact us for an appointment so we can assess your whether this type of treatment is right for you.
Suresmile is technology that allows our orthodontists to custom design your orthodontic wires.
Using a 3D scan of your teeth in treatment your ideal smile is digitally designed by your orthodontist.
From this, a precise set of customised wires is then bent by a robot, with multiple individual bends moving your teeth precisely into place. This system acts as an alternative to your orthodontist placing individual bends in your wires over a series of appointments.
In some cases this technology can reduce the number of wire changes needed during your treatment, reducing the number appointments needed and your overall treatment time. Your orthodontist will determine if this treatment option is suitable for you.
No more messy impressions!
At MyOrtho our favourite new technology means we no longer to take ‘moulds’ for your orthodontic treatment. Our 3D intra-oral scanners are able to create digital printed models of your teeth without all the usual gooey, messy fuss of a traditional dental impression.
A 3D scan is super quick and non-invasive and is well tolerated by everyone, including our smallest and most anxious of patients.
The high level of accuracy of these scans allows them to be utilised in many areas of orthodontic treatment including for Invisalign, Suresmile wires and custom retainers after treatment.
Early Childhood Treatment
Airway assessment – During the examination we assess the airways. If we believe there are any issues that are outside our field of expertise you may be offered a referral to discuss these issues with a qualified ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctor.
Timely intervention can also reduce the need for extractions in crowded cases. Several orthodontic conditions can benefit from early intervention.
- Deep bites that are complete to the palate
- Crossbites (or underbites) in the front or back of the mouth
- Thumb or finger sucking habits
- Large overjets (commonly called “overbites”)
- Problems with the position of the top or bottom jaw
- Tongue tie and tongue thrusts or speech issues which are related to the anterior tooth position
- Airway assessment – During the examination we assess the airways. If we believe there are any issues that are outside our field of expertise you may be offered a referral to discuss these issues with a qualified ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctor.
When more than orthodontics is involved necessary referrals are sought. We work closely with a trusted team of dental and allied health professionals to ensure you are always treated by the person most qualified to do the job.
If you are an adult considering orthodontic treatment, good on you for taking the first step towards improving your teeth and smile. Thankfully we have more options available to you that are more socially acceptable. We will take every step to make the journey as easy and enjoyable as possible for you.
As an adult we aim to give you the best treatment without impacting your every day life. We also offer extended hours of operation to allow for early or late appointments
Sometimes a team approach is required to give you the smile you want. At MyOrtho we work closely with your dentist and a trusted team of Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons, Periodontsts, Prosthodontists, Paedodontists and Endodontists. In some cases medical specialists like ear, nose and throat surgeons are also involved.
Examples of combined treatment include:
- Sleep apnoea
- Orthognathic Surgery (jaw surgery)
- Crowns and veneers
Sometimes we cannot achieve the desired result without moving your jaws during treatment, other times patients want to change their appearance. In both these instances we enlist the help of an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon achieve a balanced and better looking profile.
