The Dental Studio is proud to offer orthodontic treatment to patients from a dentist you trust and the practice you know.
It can become a hassle to have to visit a number of locations to get the dental treatment you need. The Dental Studio care about your time and now offer orthodontic solutions with the same gentle care you have come to know.
Orthodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with jaw and teeth alignment. A misaligned bite can be caused by a number of reasons including crooked or irregular teeth or a disproportionate jaw. While many patients can see the benefit of straightening teeth for aesthetic purposes, it is important to recognise the overall oral health benefits as well.
Straight teeth are easier to keep clean as they have less hard to reach places. This means a reduced risk of decay or more advanced gum and bone damage.
A corrected bite means jaw force is evenly distributed between all teeth during biting, chewing, and speaking. This helps to prevent uneven wear on teeth leading to weakened tooth structures, cracks, chips and breaks.
Orthodontics for children
It is important for children to have the growth and development of their mouth and teeth assessed on a regular basis by the team at The Dental Studio. This allows early interceptive orthodontic treatment that may limit problems later on. At The Dental Studio, children as young as 6 or 7 can begin receiving the appropriate orthodontic care. This care can sometimes include removable plates or certain fixed appliances before moving onto braces in their teens. We love the journey with children throughout their treatment process and have a long term vision of their overall oral health.
Children and teens are especially receptive to this type of treatment as we are able to use their growing mouths and teeth to optimise the treatment process. However, it is never too late to straighten teeth and we are committed to transforming our adult patients’ smiles through Invisalign or clear braces.
Traditional braces are the most well-known orthodontic treatment. These braces have been tried and tested and are extremely effective at straightening misaligned teeth and bites.
The braces are made from medical grade stainless steel which means they are safe for the mouth and body. A series of brackets will be attached to each tooth and arch-wires add a small amount of pressure to move the teeth into the desired position.
Traditional braces can also align the bite with the addition of elastics which again use pressure to move teeth.
At the Dental Studio, we understand that patients wish to have a discreet treatment option. Traditional braces can have clear brackets applied which reduce the visibility of the braces.
The Dental Studio offers Invisalign to patients who wish to straighten their teeth in a virtually invisible way. This is generally the preferred choice for our adult patients. To find out more about Invisalign click here.
