What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics deals with the correction of teeth misalignment (crooked teeth), malocclusion, and jawbone defects. Orthodontic equipment is fabricated to your measurements and is worn in the mouth for a period of time. The device slowly shifts your teeth into place to achieve the desired alignment.
Orthodontic treatment should begin early in life for best results. We recommend an orthodontic evaluation for children as young as 7 years old. The result of the assessment will show if your child has jawbone’ defects and will help your dentist create an orthodontic treatment plan for your child.

Orthodontic Options At Smiles Nambour
Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic option that makes use of clear invisible retainers to correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic problems.
The clear aligners are removable and are nearly impossible to detect when worn. Each Invisalign tray is custom-made to the wearer’s unique measurements and is worn for two weeks. It should stay in the mouth for 20-22 hours a day and should never be removed unless you’re eating, brushing your teeth, or engaging in a sports activity.
Metal brackets can be used to straighten the teeth and correct a broad range of dental issues. They are visible but modern dentistry has allowed for braces that are smaller, making them less noticeable and more comfortable than before.
