Family Dental Care can provide fixed and removable braces suitable for children and adults. We also offer lingual braces which fit inside the teeth so they are less visible. Our strong interest in orthodontics combined with our wide choice of braces allows us to suggest the most suitable solution for your needs.
Fixed or Removable Braces?
Removable braces are a popular choice, particularly for more cosmetically oriented orthodontic problems, but sometimes fixed braces can offer more predictable and potentially faster results. Fixed braces can be especially good for children’s orthodontics as our dentists can precisely plan the movement of their teeth, correcting even complex orthodontic problems that can be less suitable for removable braces treatment. We will always suggest the option we feel will provide the best outcome for you. If there is more than one option, we will discuss these with you, providing you with all the information required to make an informed choice.
How Long Will I Need to Wear Braces?
Treatment can take a few months, to a year or more. Times can vary considerably depending on the problems requiring correction and the chosen braces system. When you first come to see us, we will be able to fully assess your smile and can provide a timeframe for treatment.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Contact us for more information. Rebates may vary depending on your individual health fund.
