Orthodontics in hobart

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating irregularities in tooth alignment and jaw positioning. It addresses issues such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Incorrectly positioned jaw.


We are a general dentist focusing on cosmetic dentistry, including orthodontic alignment. Beyond the aesthetic benefits of a straighter smile, orthodontic treatment also plays a crucial role in improving oral health by creating an easier-to-clean environment and reducing the risk of dental problems such as cavities and gum disease. Through personalised treatment plans, orthodontics aims to enhance both the function and appearance of a person’s smile, contributing to their overall well-being and self-confidence.

We offer two types of treatment:

  • Fixed braces
  • Clear aligners

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces consist of brackets attached to the teeth and wires threaded through the brackets. Over time, braces apply gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position.

Braces can be made from different materials, including metal and ceramic. Traditional metal braces are the most common type, but tooth-coloured ceramic braces are less noticeable. Additionally, there are lingual braces, which are placed on the back side of the teeth, making them less visible from the front.

Braces are typically worn for a period of months to a few years, depending on the severity of the misalignment and the individual’s treatment plan. During this time, periodic adjustments are made to ensure the teeth continue moving into the correct position.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners allow you to work, eat, and continue a confident social life without worrying about people noticing you are wearing brackets and wires. Here are some reasons why they could be right for you.

Virtually Invisible

Since the trays are clear, they are hard to detect. Clients tell us that other people rarely notice they are wearing them.

Digital Treatment Plan

We create a digital treatment plan before we begin, which allows you to see how your teeth will align at each stage.

Comfort

The trays are made of smooth plastic, making them much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Plus, they are custom-made to fit your teeth.

Is Easy To Clean

Since the trays are removable when you are ready to clean your teeth, you simply remove them, brush and floss and then put them back in. The trays are also easy to clean by removing them and rinsing or brushing them with your toothbrush.

Safe And Removable

If you play sports, clear aligners give you a more comfortable experience without the scrapes other orthodontic options can cause. And as they are removable, this makes brushing your teeth, eating, and everyday life much easier.

Eat Whatever You Want

As you can easily remove the trays when needed, there is no restriction on what you eat, unlike some other orthodontic treatments.

Better Oral Health

Straight teeth are better for your oral health. Eliminating gaps or crowding makes it easier to care for your teeth.

Beautifully Straight Teeth

The results speak for themselves. Clear aligners lead to beautifully straight teeth.
