Frequently Asked Questions
The way your teeth align and meet together is referred to as occlusion. When your jaw is closed and the top surfaces of your molars line up, your upper teeth will normally be higher than your lower teeth. Teeth, on the other hand, do not always line up. Malocclusion of the teeth is a misalignment problem that can cause serious oral health problems.
The following are examples of common orthodontic issues:
- Bite problems such as underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite, and overjet.
- Abnormal eruption of the tooth.
- Gaps, also known as spaces between teeth,
- Gum problems
- Misalignment of jaw.
- Misaligned dental midlines.
- Problem with proper chewing.
Traditional braces and Invisalign have quite different appearances. Invisalign uses a series of customised removable aligners made of clear plastic material.
On the other hand, metal braces have brackets, wires, and rubber or elastic bands, which all help in adjusting the position of each tooth. They are more visible and permanent, unlike clear aligners.
Both these appliances can be used to correct orthodontic problems, but each has their own unique treatment approaches. When it comes to complex cases, traditional braces are much more preferred than aligners.
When it comes to bringing your child to an orthodontic appointment, there is no set age. Some kids may go at the age of 6, while others may visit their dentist when they turn 10 and others during their teenage years.
Dental practitioners often encourage parents to bring their children for orthodontic treatment once all of the baby teeth have fallen out and all of the adult teeth have fully developed. This is most common around the age of seven. At this age, issues like poor bite and overcrowding are becoming noticeable.
In Australia, orthodontic services can be rather pricey. The cost may vary depending on a number of factors, such as the type of treatment and the location.
Estimated costs for braces and other orthodontic treatments based on a survey by the Australian Dental Association are as follows:
- Traditional metal braces: $3,465.18 – $8,000
- Lingual braces: $3,465.18 – $6,463.64 (per arch)
- Ceramic braces $5,000 – $8,500
- Invisalign (clear aligners): $3,298.26 (minor treatment)
- Invisalign (clear aligners): $6,000 – $9,000 (full treatment)
The above example shows the average cost of treatment in Australia. Your case will determine what treatment you need. In our dental office, we have flexible payment options to meet your needs. We can discuss these with you in detail.
