What is an orthodontist?

Orthodontists are dental specialists who are trained in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. They provide a wide range of treatment options to straighten crooked teeth, fix bad bites, and align the jaws correctly.

After completing a five-year degree in dentistry, an orthodontist undergoes a further 5,000 hours (or three years of full-time study) of specialist training in the field of orthodontics. Whether you or your child are being treated with braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign®, you need to be sure you’re being treated by an orthodontist to get the best results.

While orthodontists are primarily known for straightening teeth, they can also assist with painful and misaligned bites, tooth movement caused by bad habits such as thumb sucking, and even some forms of sleep apnoea. If you’re wondering what an orthodontist can do for your smile, you should make an appointment to have an assessment – no referral is necessary.

What is the best age for an early orthodontic assessment?
We recommend children between the ages of 7-9years to visit a specialist orthodontist for their first assessment. No referral from a dentist is needed.

By this age, most children will have a mix of adult and baby teeth, which will help the orthodontist to determine if there are any developing problems such as misalignment of the jaws, crowding, or overbites.

As a parent, it can be difficult to tell whether your child will benefit from early orthodontic treatment. However, orthodontists have the specialist training to know when and how it is appropriate to treat, when to wait, and when no treatment is required.

What is the best age to have orthodontic treatment?

While there is no one ‘best’ age at which a child should receive orthodontic treatment, what’s important is that they see a specialist who can either rule out the need for treatment early or recommend the best course of action.

Orthodontists are the most qualified and experienced clinicians who can manage all tooth and jaw alignment problems. Orthodontists can determine the best time to treat a specific orthodontic problem, whether it be as a child, teenager, or adult. With the guidance of a specialist orthodontist, your child’s teeth and smile will be in safe hands!

Orthodontic hills problems could be resolved with early treatment:

  • Underbites
  • Open Bites
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Facial Asymmetry
  • Crowded teeth
  • Excessively Spacing
  • Extra or missing teeth
  • Thumb-, finger-, or pacifier- sucking that can affect development.
Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontics is no longer just for children, and there has been a significant increase in the number of adults undergoing orthodontic treatment later in life.

Whether you didn’t have access to treatment when you were younger, or if your teeth started shifting later in life, there is no cutoff age for getting braces, which means your teeth can be straightened at any age. However, orthodontics as an adult could be more complicated for a number of reasons including fillings, missing teeth, or other dental issues. Your specialist orthodontist will fully assess your oral health and flag any concerns that may arise.

What sort of braces should I get?
Braces stereotypes are well and truly a thing of the past. Orthodontic technologies have evolved, so wearing braces is no longer as aesthetically concerning or uncomfortable as it used to be.

Some discreet mechanisms for straightening adult teeth with braces include ceramic braces and invisible aligners.

Ceramic braces are either tooth-colored or clear enough to blend into your teeth, making it far more discreet. Ceramic braces are also a great alternative to metal braces if you are looking for a less obvious treatment option.

Clear aligners are one of the most common treatment options for adults. A series of removable, clear plastic trays are used to gently guide teeth into their new position. They’re custom-made and fit snugly on your teeth, a bit like a small mouthguard. Clear aligner treatment is suited to correct problems such as crooked, gappy, or protruding teeth. Another reason to love clear aligners is that your review appointments can often be spaced out to suit a busy work schedule.

What to expect when you come for your orthodontic consultation appointment?
When you visit our orthodontic clinic at Hills Dental Care, you will be warmly welcomed by the entire team. You will be taken into a private consultation room, where photo records of the teeth will be taken, followed by X-rays of the teeth if you don’t already have them. Then you will meet the orthodontist. This is the chance to address any concerns you may have before the orthodontist does a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, facial shape, and bite. Your orthodontist will then be able to determine whether treatment is needed

Do you have fast-braces options for a special occasion?
Of course, we do. Whether it’s a birthday wedding or any other special occasion, we can offer 6 -12 months of fast braces or aligners to help improve your smile. The results won’t be as perfect as the comprehensive treatment options, but it still is a substantial improvement. Please contact us for an obligation-free consultation.
