Orthodontists in Geelong Providing Orthodontic Services

Orthodontics is a very specialised field of dentistry, in which the dentist uses their skills to align crooked teeth, correct improper jaw relationships, and allow for your or your child to have correct facial/skeletal development. At Dentists & Doctors we offer teeth straightening services to children, teenagers and adult patients. With the use of all latest techniques in dentistry we can accurately plan and receive full orthodontics treatment across Geelong in shorter durations and at more comfort to our patients. For the best treatment for dental braces in Geelong, book an appointment today.

What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics means “straight teeth”, the treatment is more commonly known as braces. Orthodontic treatment with the help of dental braces at our clinic in Geelong can improve the appearance, function and health of your teeth, mouth and jaw. The most common reason for orthodontic treatment is crooked teeth.

What Are The Benefits Of Orthodontic Treatment?

Depending on the type of orthodontic treatment option you pursue you can expect the benefits of  enhanced aesthetics,  improved bite and prevention of further damage to surrounding teeth and gums.

In summary

1. Ease in cleaning teeth
crowded and crooked teeth can be difficult to clean, particularly when teeth overlap. A major risk factor for tooth decay and gum disease is inadequate cleaning. With straight and aligned teeth, patients find it easier to floss and brush.

2. Enhanced appearance
Many of us are conscious of how we look, and how our teeth or smile may look to others. The orthodontics treatment at our Geelong clinic can help you achieve an attractive smile that can play an important role in enhancing self-confidence.

3. Improved speech issues
Some of us may have difficulty speaking properly due to the alignment of our teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment can resolve these issues and help improve your overall quality of life

4. Gum damage 
If you or someone you know is experiencing an incorrect bite, also known as malocclusion, it is likely that your bite may be causing damage to your gums. For example, a deep bite of your lower front teeth can injure the soft tissue of your upper front teeth.

What To Expect At Your Orthodontic Consultation Appointment

A thorough examination including x-rays, photos and 3D scans will be taken by your dentist during your consultation for orthodontics at our Geelong clinic so that an accurate analysis and record is taken for the diagnosis and treatment planning of your teeth and jaw.

At Dentists & Doctors we are pleased to offer Gap free orthodontics consultation appointments for Geelong patients.

Following your initial examination at Dentists & Doctors, you will be provided information on what your treatment options are, how soon you should start treatment, the duration of your treatment and a quote by the dentists at our Geelong clinic.

What Do I Need To Remember Whilst Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment?

Whether you are completing fixed orthodontics  (traditional braces), plates or clear aligners (Invisalign), it is essential that you

1. Maintain good oral hygiene
It is important that whilst completing your orthodontic treatment you maintain a high standard of oral hygiene. This means maintaining twice daily toothbrushing, daily flossing, use of mouthwash and fluoridated toothpaste.

Wearing braces and retainers can make it difficult to clean your teeth and provides an extra surface for the bacteria and food to collect, thus it is important to maintain regular oral home care practices and speak to your dentist if you aren’t sure how to clean your teeth with fixed braces or retainers.

2. Attend regular dental checks
Visiting your dentist every 6 months for a routine dental check, clean and fluoride treatment is important in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. It ensures any teeth which are at risk of tooth decay are regularly monitored, X rays may also be taken at your routine dental checks.

3. Modify your diet
While completing orthodontic treatment it is important to modify any poor existing dietary habits. You will need to avoid eating sticky foods such as toffees and hard sticky candy, as well as limiting your intake of carbonated drinks such as Coke which are high in sugar and acidic.

A poor diet will increase your risk of tooth decay, more so whilst undergoing orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic brackets and wires on your teeth are a magnet for sugar, acid and bacteria.

If you are undergoing clear aligner therapy this does not mean you are in the clear, you will also need to maintain a healthy diet as well as good oral hygiene practices.

Your dentist will provide you with more information on appropriate diet and oral hygiene habits.

4. Follow directions given by your dental practitioner
If you are completing your orthodontic treatment with clear aligner therapy (such as Invisalign or Smilestyler) in geelong, it is important aligners are worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day to achieve effective movement of teeth and ensuring treatment is completed in the time frame discussed.

Clear aligners and retainers are not to be worn during mealtimes or whilst drinking fluids other than water.

If you are wearing fixed braces it is important you attend your regular orthodontic visits to ensure correct and timely movement of teeth. Our dentists ensure proper positioning of your misaligned teeth with the help of quality dental braces at our clinic in Geelong. After completion of any orthodontic treatment you will be provided with either a clear retainer or fixed orthodontic wire to prevent future movement of teeth. If your retainers are not worn according to instructions given to you by your dentist your teeth may move out of alignment.

Having the correct jaw and teeth relationship is critical to having a healthy mouth that lasts the test of time.  Our team at Dentists & Doctors welcome patients from Geelong and surrounding areas such as Highton, Torquay and Waurn Ponds, and are highly trained with not only traditional braces but also other myofascial treatments which if commenced early on can lead to the avoidance of requiring braces.

Dentist & Doctors is by far the best in dentistry in our area. They are amazing at dealing with any problem you may have and have given myself and my family the best dentist care we have ever received. Dentist and Doctors have the most amazing staff to help with any dental procedures you could ever need. They are very reasonably priced and really care for all of their patients. We have been attending Dentist and Doctors for several years now and have changed my opinion about Dentists altogether. I was always ashamed to smile but now that has completely changed. Asef and all of his staff offer the very best in quality service. Please don’t hesitate for the latest technology in dental care and the friendliest atmosphere you could ever imagine. Thankyou to Asef and all of his team as they are by far the best Dentist to have. Quality and kindness always. Regards JO PRATT & FAMILY.😁

Dr Matt and Dr Asef make you feel very welcome to their Practice. Nothing is too much bother for them and they are more than happy to explain the procedures in detail and answer any questions you may have. I had 4 – 3 hour sessions to do the prep work and fit crowns to my very worn out teeth. I was made to feel very comfortable during those sessions with staged breaks along the way. The final results are amazing. My Good Wife Bon is very pleased with the end result too. Happy Wife, Happy Life! I highly recommend Dentists and Doctors Geelong to everyone for their ongoing Dental Support. The front desk Team are also very helpful and supportive. Nothing is too much bother for them in finding suitable appointment times and answering any billing enquires you may have. Thank you Matt, Anwar, the Dental Nurses and your lovely Support Team. Best wishes for a great ongoing future here in Geelong.

Amazing service from Dr Pascale at the dentist. My son, who has severe anxiety, was made to feel very calm during a procedure. He was always told what was happening and always given a chance to stop. The ladies at the front desk have always been helpful and it doesn’t smell like a dentist! I recommend this place to those that have anxious children or are anxious themselves.
