Our braces treatment in Adelaide is carried out with the utmost care and consideration. We’re committed to ensuring you’re happy with our service from day one until completion – and beyond.

We understand how important it is for people of all ages to feel comfortable with their smiles. Not only can the right orthodontic treatment enhance the appearance of your smile, but it can also improve your overall dental health.

By straightening your teeth with braces, you can significantly reduce the risk of jaw and oral health problems, such as tooth decay, premature wear of teeth, jaw pain, gum disease, and more. This is because straighter teeth are much easier to maintain when it comes to cleaning, flossing and satisfying good oral hygiene – which preserves the health of your teeth and jaw for longer!

The Orthodontic Place in Adelaide provides traditional braces, clear ceramic braces, and a range of other orthodontic treatments that can be tailored to your individual situation.

Regardless of how unique or complex your teeth alignment issues may be, our lead orthodontist, Dr Sara Dudley, and professional dental team are here to help create the best treatment plan for you. Read more about our braces treatment options below.

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of dental braces for kids, teenagers and adults, and are more comfortable today than ever before.

Made of high-grade stainless steel, traditional braces use metal brackets and archwires to apply pressure to the teeth and shift them into the desired position. Metal braces tend to be more affordable than other options and can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, such as tooth misalignment and overcrowding.

Because of their durable build, wearing metal braces means you’re less likely to experience broken brackets, so you can avoid extending the treatment time longer than needed. You can also add coloured elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colourful smile.

At The Orthodontic Place in Adelaide, we offer specialised orthodontic treatments in metal braces for kids, teens and adults. Contact us today for more information regarding cost or to book an initial appointment.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.

For this reason, clear ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients with cosmetic concerns. They have a similar treatment time to metal braces and can also be used to correct misaligned and crooked teeth.

Clear ceramic braces are a more aesthetic option and provide great results without the traditional look of metal braces. Book a consultation to learn more about clear ceramic braces treatment.

At The Orthodontic Place in Adelaide, we pair our expertise in braces treatment with supportive, family-oriented and warm service – ensuring you feel comfortable and happy every time you come into our clinics!

Kids Braces

On average, when kids reach the age of 7, dental problems such as crossbites and overcrowding can be seen and evaluated. In most cases, dental braces for kids teeth will not be used. Instead, we will opt for removable appliances, such as plates and expanders, as early forms of orthodontic treatment to lessen or eliminate the need for treatment later on.

Braces for kids (mini braces) are only required when your child’s misaligned teeth are causing immediate functional problems or harming their health. To find out what orthodontic treatment is right for your kid, call one of our nearby clinics in Adelaide, and we’ll assist you further.

Teenage Braces

Teenage braces are among the most common orthodontic treatments, as this is the age when all adult teeth have emerged and can be treated for alignment and correction.

Teens are often concerned about the appearance of braces, which is why we provide different types of dental braces for teenagers at our Adelaide clinics. This includes clear ceramic braces and aligner alternatives, namely Invisalign. However, traditional metal braces continue to be the most used form of braces for teenagers, as they’re very durable and offer a more comfortable fit.

Our teen braces treatment may also be used in conjunction with teeth appliances, such as plates, functional appliances and expanders, for a better result. If your teen is anxious about their braces treatment, let us know so we can help ensure the process is as pleasant as possible.

Adult Braces

We have many different options for adults seeking orthodontic treatment. Braces could be an excellent solution if you’ve got crooked teeth, missing teeth or any other dental problem causing discomfort or a lack of confidence.

Many adults can be self-conscious when it comes to wearing braces, which is why we offer discreet clear ceramic braces and alternative solutions such as Invisalign, which can assist with your confidence during treatment. And if you’re worried about the price or how long you may have to wear braces, we can help. Our supportive staff will work with you to develop an affordable treatment plan that fully suits your needs.

At The Orthodontic Place in Adelaide, we offer braces treatment for all ages so everyone can enjoy straight, healthy teeth. For professional dental and orthodontic services that deliver the best smiles, get in touch with us today.

Braces Treatment Process

Before you begin your treatment, you will have an initial appointment with our lead orthodontist, Dr Sara Dudley, who will assess your situation and talk to you about your treatment options.

If treatment is required, we will schedule you for an orthodontic x-ray and take study models of your teeth, which will be used to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for your orthodontic needs. We will then organise the necessary appointments to fit your braces.

Braces treatment can take anywhere between 6 and 24 months, depending on the severity of your problem. During this time, you will attend a regular braces adjustment appointment every 6 to 8 weeks, so we can check on your progress and change your wires as needed.

Our warm, friendly staff will provide you with the best care possible, helping you feel prepared and comfortable throughout your treatment. Call us today to book an initial appointment and start your journey towards a better smile.
