Why choose an orthodontist?
AN Orthodontist is a specialist in the alignment of the teeth and jaws, similar to a cardiologist is a specialist to the heart. To become a qualified orthodontist, a person must:
- Complete a minimum of 5 years full-time Bachelor of Dentistry
- Complete a minimum of 2 years as a practicing Dentist
- Complete a 3 years full-time Master in Orthodontics at an accredited University and
- Registered as a specialist in Orthodontics by the Dental Board.
By choosing an orthodontist, you can be assured that you have the most qualified person to diagnose, prevent and treat any problems you might have with the alignment of your teeth and jaws. For further details, please see the Australian Society of Orthodontist Website.
The ABC philosophy
ABC Orthodontics follows the philosophy of early intervention and non-extraction therapies. With early intervention, known as orthopaedics, the growth of a child’s jaw is guided to create enough space for the adult teeth to emerge. This pre-treatment can reduce the need for extraction of otherwise perfect, healthy adult teeth.
While many of our patients are children, we also provide orthodontic treatment to adults. Adult orthodontics is a growing field as many adults choose to enhance their oral health and smile. We can correct lifelong irregularities of the teeth, bite, and jaws and related facial abnormalities.
