Why orthodontics (braces)?
Orthodontics is a specialty in dentistry dedicated to the study and treatment of malocclusion (improper bites). Improper bites often compromise the cosmetics of one’s smile and/or the functions of chewing and talking.
Malocclusion is quite a common finding in Australia. Crowding of teeth, improper jaw sizes, naturally missing tooth/teeth, thumb sucking or prematurely lost baby teeth are some of the common causes for the emergence of malocclusion.
Although some orthodontic cases may be simple enough to be treated by the general dentist, in the best interest for our patients, at Warrigal Dental we work in conjunction with orthodontic specialists who have more complete understanding and experience in orthodontics – so we ensure the most ideal and successful orthodontic result for our patients.
