Our orthodontists will ensure that the health of your child’s teeth is cared for by our comprehensive range of treatments

Here at Excel Orthodontics in South Australia we take an informative approach to our dentistry. This means making sure that all of our patients, even the young are completely knowledgeable about their Orthodontic treatments. This helps us communicate with young patients and their parents so that everyone is fully informed. This results in optimised treatment that’s smoother and sometimes even more effective, ensuring accurate and precise orthodontic treatment.

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment can be used to treat a number of problematic dental issues. Just some of these issues include:

  • Asymmetrical teeth, a jagged smile, or crowded teeth
  • Absent/missing teeth
  • Additional Teeth (overcrowding)
  • An Overbite
  • An Under bite
  • A Crossbite
  • Bent or incorrect jawbone position
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (improper positioning of the TMJ/Connective jaw muscle)

Many of these problems can show themselves early which is why we recommend beginning seeing the dentist when your child is around 3 years of age. This will allow your general dentist to monitor the development of their teeth and recommend them to us in the event of crooked or problematic teeth. Orthodontic treatment such as braces can be installed as young as 8 years of age. Although braces are popular during adolescence, receiving orthodontic treatment for your child earlier in your life will mean that they get to enjoy having straight teeth for longer.

We have a broad selection of orthodontic treatments available for our younger and older patients

Here at Excel Orthdontics we offer an entire arsenal of orthodontic therapies including:

Invisalign and Incognito braces are our two most popular choices for braces therapy, with ceramic braces coming in a close third. Invisalign and Incognito are two of the most inconspicuous braces treatments available. With these treatments you can appear to have a flawless smile while receiving the orthodontic treatment necessary to create a long-lasting, classic smile. Invisalign involves the use of a series of transparent aligners, while Incognito braces involves the use of metal braces behind the teeth so that they are completely concealed from view. These are otherwise known as lingual braces at some orthodontic studios.

Traditional braces are still a powerful way to transform your smile

Traditional metal braces have been the prevalent orthodontic treatment of choice for years. They are the most widely used treatment as they are reliable and cost-effective when compared to the more complex braces treatments such as Incognito braces. Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces although they are concealed by ceramic coloured porcelain. They have all the same components as normal braces although they appear almost invisible to the naked eye.

You’re never too old to get orthodontic treatment…

Although you may familiarise orthodontic treatment with adolescents and young people, braces treatment can be performed at any age. Many adults have gone through life disliking their smile due to discrepancies in the straightness of their grin, that’s why Excel Orthodontics is happy to help. We have conveniently placed practices in West Lakes, Glenelg, Warradale and Nuriootpa so you can rest assured that you can receive orthodontic treatment anywhere in South Australia.
