What you need to know

Teenage Treatment at ORTHODONTIX

Whether your teenager needs traditional metal braces, Invisalign® or a retainer, we’ll help you find the right treatment option through our personalised care plans.
Undergoing treatment during the teenage years reduces treatment time, improves results and minimises the need for further intervention in the future. Although everyone is different, treatment usually lasts from 12-18 months.
When should your teenager get treatment?
The most common time to receive orthodontic treatment is during the teenage years, with the typical ages being 11 to 15 years old.
Around age 11 or 12, the final permanent teeth (except, in some cases, the third molars, or “wisdom teeth”) have erupted. This is the ideal stage of development to assess the alignment of the teeth accurately and identify any crooked teeth, gaps, or poor alignment.
How will Orthodontic Treatment help?
Getting needed orthodontic treatment for your teenager will prevent further concerns down the track, helping avoid ongoing issues with:

Improper bite.

Tooth wear and decay.

Gum disease, plaque build-up and cavities.

Possible tooth loss.

“We help our teen patients by offering treatments that suit their wishes and lifestyles.

While orthodontic treatment requires some commitment, patients are rewarded with healthy straight teeth, proper jaw alignment and a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

Improvements in personal appearance contribute to greater mental and physical health. Creating a beautiful smile through orthodontics is a reliable way of improving the health of your teeth as well as your self-esteem.”

Orthodontix Treatment Options

There is a treatment suitable for you or your child for the perfect smile.

Early Treatment

Early treatment has the best results. The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) recommends kids see an orthodontist between the ages of six and eight. As an orthodontist on the Northern Beaches for 20 years, we know early detection and treatment to correct jaw growth and certain bite problems, such as underbite have better outcomes.
Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Adult Treatment

With advancements in orthodontic treatments, we’re helping more and more adults find solutions for oral problems they’ve had since they were children. In addition to Invisalign® Clear Teeth Aligners, we provide other orthodontic treatments.
