GP Orthodontics at Chermside Dental Care
Orthodontics at Chermside Dental Care is best described as comfortable, affordable and professional. Performed by our general dentists with a special interest in moving and straightening teeth, our orthodontic options are customized to achieve your best smile in an affordable and efficient manner.
We recommend coming in for a consultation with Dr. Angela to discuss all of your concerns. This way we can do a full assessment, and explore some options you may not even have thought of! Options to straighten teeth include conventional braces, clear braces, clear aligners such as angelalign and invisalign, expansion plates and more. It’s a very exciting part of dentistry that we thoroughly enjoy.
Orthodontics can have a variety of approaches. Straight teeth is definitely the goal, however there are a number of philosophies and ways to get there.
For children, we like to minimise removal of teeth, with a focus on expansion and early intervention orthodontics. This involves expansion of the upper jaw bone and moving the lower jaw forward during the growth phase of the children. By doing this, we create space and minimise the need for teeth removal.
For adults, there is often pre-existing teeth wear and crowding due to limited space. For these patients, we often look at a combination of enamel stripping, edge bonding and whitening in combination with mild expansion using braces or aligners to achieve ideal aesthetic outcomes.
Here at Chermside Dental Care, we offer interest-free payment plans over 2 years for orthodontics (DentiCare) as well as AfterPay and ZipPay. We are also preferred providers for all major health funds including Bupa, HCF, NIB, Smile.com.au and Medibank Private.
