Castlemaine Smiles offers Orthodontic treatment for adults and children in a personalised, informative and fun environment.
We take time to find out what goals you have for your smile and designs orthodontic treatment specifically for you. He never uses the ‘one size fits all’ approach.
When do you need an Orthodontic Treatment?
Signs and symptoms suggesting an orthodontic consultation is needed can include:
- Crowded and crooked teeth
- Mouth breathing
- Teeth grinding
- Temporomandibular joint pain (TMJD)/clicking or popping of jaw
- Dark circles/patches under the eyes
- Constant tiredness
- Enlarged tonsils
- Chronic bed-wetting
- Dry mouth
How Crooked Teeth Affect Your Health?
Crooked teeth are more than just a reflection of misaligned bones and teeth. Bones that are misaligned and poorly developed are often associated with a restricted airway, which is also linked to bed-wetting, poor quality sleep, bags under the eyes, fatigue, and allergies.
In addition, crooked teeth can result in compression of the jaw joint and trigger jaw clicking, headaches, and neck pain. Finally, misaligned bones can cause a less appealing facial aesthetic.
When you undergo an orthodontic treatment, the changes in the shape of your face and the position of your teeth will improve gradually. The final outcome is life changing. Not only your dental health will improve, but also your self-esteem.
We believe that because we are all unique and our face shapes are slightly different, a standard ‘orthodontic smile’ will not look completely natural for most people.
For this reason we use individually prescribed braces using IP Appliances (Individual Patient Appliances). Each bracket, band and wire is individually chosen to create a final smile that is truly personalised and looks as natural as possible.
