Treatment for the whole family
Orthodontic treatment for children
The teeth we get as children are the teeth we have for life, so it’s important to look after them. The Australian Association of Orthodontics recommends children have an initial orthodontic consultation by the age of seven. A consultation at this age will enable us to assess your child’s teeth and jaws and identify any treatment that may be required in the future. Because their bones are still growing at this time, certain conditions, such as teeth crowding, can be addressed more easily. Early treatment can also literally improve their facial features for life and save financial and emotional expenses associated with problems that go unchecked.
Orthodontic treatment for teens
The teenage years, when we’re at our most self-conscious, are, unfortunately, the same years when we’re most likely to need braces. At Torque we reassure all our teenage patients that orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to impose on their lifestyle. These days, with invisible treatment options such as Invisalign Teen, many teenagers don’t have to worry about the stigma of wearing braces as many of their friends won’t even know they’re having treatment.
Orthodontic treatment for adults
At Torque Orthodontics, one thing we tell all of our patients is that ‘you’re never too old to have treatment’. Whether it’s a crooked tooth that’s annoying you, an unsightly gap between teeth, bite issues causing you problems or crowding, we have appliances that can deal with all of these issues to give you the smile you’re after. Modern technology also means that many of the appliances we use are aesthetically appealing and won’t impact on your appearance.
