Orthodontic Appliances in Dulwich Hill

The team at Wardell Dental Clinic offers a full suite of dental solutions to suit your needs. If your teeth need straightening or require preparation before starting orthodontic treatment, orthodontic appliances may be the ideal solution. They can also be used while you have braces to support the process of straightening your teeth.

Are Orthodontic Appliances Necessary?

Sometimes tooth and jaw development present itself in a way that will cause problems later on in life. Such is the case in young children who have lost a tooth prematurely, have experienced prolonged oral habits (such as thumb sucking) or inherited a small jaw size from one of their parents.

Instead of waiting until their mouths are nearly developed to begin orthodontic treatment, we recommend growth modification to improve their oral anatomy during the developmental process.

These interceptive techniques help to promote proper oral development and minimise the extent of future orthodontic complications. That way when your child wears braces later, they will work more efficiently and require less aggressive strategies once other treatments start.

Does My Child Need to See an Orthodontist?

Orthodontic specialists recommend that all children see a dentist or orthodontist for an evaluation by the time they’re 7 years old.

If your child has speech delays, a known tongue thrust, teeth that don’t close together properly, suck their finger/thumb or have experienced premature tooth loss, then it’s time to visit our office for a consultation. Our comprehensive family dental practice offers full orthodontic services in-house, making it convenient for you or your child to get the quality care that you deserve.
