Braces

Getting Straight To It

The function of braces is not just to straighten crooked teeth, but also guide the growth and development of the facial bones, which is why they are mostly prescribed for patients in their pre- or early teens.

At iSmile Studio Balwyn we recommend you bring your child in for an assessment when their first adult teeth begin to emerge, around 6 – 7 years of age. This early intervention can minimise the need for dental extractions, reduce the timeframe wearing braces should they be required, improve growth and development, and enhance aesthetics.

There is also quite a range of braces, all designed for correcting different problems. Conventional braces are placed on the front of the teeth, while lingual braces are placed behind the teeth so they can’t be seen. However, not every person is suitable for lingual braces.

There are many varying factors to consider before undertaking orthodontic treatment. Following a comprehensive examination, the team at iSmile Studio Balwyn will discuss with you in detail the options that will best suit you or your child’s individual needs.

We will then be able to provide you with a detailed treatment plan. Call us on (03) 9888 5677 to schedule an appointment or visit our practice. We are located at 1/92 Balwyn Rd, Balwyn VIC 3103.
