Adult Orthodontics

Tailored treatments for your smile at any age

The best treatment, tailored to you

Our doctors use the latest orthodontic techniques to make orthodontic treatment for adults as comfortable and efficient as possible. We have a range of options available from ceramic or tooth coloured braces to Invisalign.

A healthy, happy smile

More and more people are seeking orthodontic options for adults and stigma associated with having adult braces is mostly gone. Crowded and misaligned teeth and bites can increase the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wear of the enamel, jaw joint issues and can affect self-esteem. At your initial consultation, we’ll assess your smile and take into account your work, lifestyle and availability for treatment.

Orthodontic options for adults

At Baldivis orthodontics, are orthodontists are highly-trained in all appliances and will tailor a treatment plan to you. As an adult, there’s a range of options including clear adult braces, metal braces, plates and Invisalign. We know that getting orthodontic treatment as an adult can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. We pride ourselves on offering the best patient care and the shortest possible treatment period. Our team are team registered as APRA orthodontists who complete each appointment and treatment, so you’ll always be seen by a specialist orthodontist, not a general dentist.

Early treatment versus adult orthodontics

The main difference between adults and the child or adolescent patient is that we no longer have the benefit of working with growth. This can make orthodontic treatment more challenging, and your treatment plan may include a combination of orthodontics and jaw surgery to achieve the ideal results. However, at Baldivis Orthodontics, we use a minimal intervention approach to get the best results with the least amount of prescribed treatment for better value, less pain and recovery time.

Benefits of orthodontic treatment for adults

  • Improved self-esteem and smile appearance
