No More Hiding Your Smile and Biting Issues with Orthodontics

Some people are just born with malpositioned teeth and jaws, which is not uncommon. Others develop these problems later in life due to bad habits such as thumb sucking, improper tongue position, or teeth grinding. No matter the cause, there is one thing for sure—it affects your smile and chewing function, not to mention your self-confidence.

Orthodontics is a dentistry branch that corrects dental and facial irregularities. It involves using braces, retainers, and other appliances to move teeth, retrain muscles, and influence bone growth. The most common goal of orthodontic treatment is to achieve a better bite or when your upper teeth slightly overlap your lower teeth when you bite down, with the molars fitting perfectly together.

This results in straighter teeth, which are easier to clean and better looking. At Dentalcare of Forrestfield, we will evaluate your condition and recommend the best type of braces based on your circumstances. Reach out to us now to start your journey to a beautiful smile!

Our Orthodontics Services



This orthodontic treatment type uses clear, plastic aligners instead of metal brackets and wires. The most significant Invisalign advantage is that it is almost invisible, so you can wear them without feeling self-conscious and more comfortable since there are no wires or brackets that can rub against your gums and cheeks.

Invisalign Consultation

The Invisalign procedure starts with a consultation with one of our dentists to see if you are a candidate for this treatment type. We will then take X-rays, photographs, and dental impressions of your teeth to create a digital 3D image of them that will be used to map out the entire treatment plan—from your teeth's initial position to the final desired position.

Clear Correct Aligners

Clear Correct is an alternative to Invisalign that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth to the best-desired position. Like Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires, so it is also virtually invisible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontics

Aside from the aesthetic benefits, straight teeth are easier to clean and less likely to get cavities or other dental problems, resulting in more extensive and expensive treatments. Orthodontic treatment can also improve your bite and make it easier to chew food. It can even sometimes relieve pain in the jaw joint and muscles.

A bad bite, also called a malocclusion, can cause several problems, such as unsightly and difficulty speaking and chewing. It can also make it hard to clean your teeth properly, leading to gum disease and tooth decay. In addition, bad bites can cause headaches, jaw pain, and neck pain. In severe cases, your speech can even be affected.

Your treatment’s duration will depend on the severity of your bite problem and how much movement is necessary to correct it. In general, treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. But some people need 3 years or more because of the severity of their bite problem.

Yes. You can still engage in sports while you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. However, we recommend that you wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth and braces from being damaged.

The cost of orthodontics depends on your individual circumstances. In Australia, the average cost of Invisalign may cost you from $6,000 to $9,000 for a full treatment and $4,500 for minor treatments. On the other hand, ceramic braces can range from $5,000 to $8,500 for standard 18-month treatment. Check with your dentist for an accurate quote for your specific case.
