Unveil a Beautiful & Healthy Smile with Orthodontic Treatments
Orthodontic treatments are used to help align the teeth and jaws to improve overall oral health, allowing you to achieve a more symmetrical and healthy smile. These treatments can range from traditional braces to clear aligners and are used to treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, and other misaligned dental issues.
Orthodontic treatments are beneficial for both children and adults, offering solutions to problems such as crooked and crowded teeth and jaw pain. They also help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and even headaches caused by improper bites.
Whether you want to get straighter teeth, fix gaps, jaw or bite irregularities, we’re here to help. With a team of capable and dedicated local dentists, a fully equipped dental practice and state of the art facilities, we have you covered.

Types of Orthodontic Treatments
At Bellevue Hill Dental, we offer both traditional braces and clear aligners to help you straighten your teeth with a treatment suited to your lifestyle and dental requirements. With a detailed examination of your teeth involving digital technology and x-rays, we provide personalised treatment plans to help achieve your desired outcome.
Our orthodontic treatments include:
Traditional braces work with the placement of either metal or ceramic brackets bonded to your teeth. Wires placed through the brackets distribute light force to unravel crowded teeth or close unwanted spaces.
Conventional braces can fix even the most severe teeth misalignments over a series of treatments which require the adjustment of your braces as your teeth shift to the correct position. They are an excellent solution for straightening teeth, especially for young children whose developing teeth and jaw need support to fix orthodontic issues.
Invisalign clear aligners work similarly to conventional braces, except they are transparent and virtually undetectable. This makes them an ideal treatment option for teenagers or adults who want a more discreet solution to straighten their smile. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for your teeth. They gradually and gently work to straighten your teeth comfortably and without any disruption to your lifestyle.
What are the Benefits of Orthodontic Treatments
Orthodontic treatments can help improve oral health by reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wear of tooth enamel, and jaw problems. They also enhance the appearance of your smile by fixing crooked or gapped teeth and improve speech by correcting misaligned teeth or jaw problems.
Early orthodontic treatments in children can help repair protruded front teeth or other alignment issues for a healthier smile and teeth. If left untreated, such teeth and jaw irregularities can lead to a poorly functioning bite, TMJ jaw pain, and facial asymmetry, including an increased risk of cavities and gum diseases.
