Are you self-conscious or concerned about the way your smile looks? At Casey Dentists our Townsville dental team have a special interest in orthodontics to enhance your smile and help you improve your oral health.
Many suffer from crowded or crooked teeth. With orthodontic treatment we can straighten your teeth by gently and slowly moving them into a more aligned position improving your appearance, your function and your ability to clean. We offer the Invisalign clear aligner system, the worlds most advanced clear aligners to help you get the very best smile.
Crowded or crooked teeth not only affect the way your smile looks, they also affect the function and health of your mouth.
Straighter teeth not only look great, they’re less likely to suffer from everyday common diseases and complications found in crowded teeth like premature or abnormal tooth wear, jaw joint problems and airway disorders.
We can treat all ages, in fact the earlier a problem is identified the easier it is to correct. We offer a comprehensive solution to your crooked teeth by using a combination of orthotropics for the very young children (ages 5-8 ) using our Myobrace, system. Our Myobrace system offers a simple 3 or 4 step application of specialized functional mouth guards that helps correct underlying growth disorders and can prevent the need for orthodontics later in life.
We also offer orthopedics (growth modification) generally before the adolescent growth spurt and if needed orthodontics whereby (braces) are used to straighten the teeth and enhance your facial profile.
Our Townsville dental team uses the Damon System which is a world renowned system focusing on low force application leading to quicker, painless treatment times giving you the smile you deserve.
In addition to a healthier, straighter smile and a full, beautiful facial profile our Townsville orthodontic patients enjoy improved self-esteem and better function of their smile as a whole. You may well be surprised at how well orthodontic care can improve a patient’s quality of life once they’re able to relax, smile and laugh around other people without feeling the need to hide their teeth.
At Casey Dentists our Townsville team of dentists with special interests in orthodontics recommend an orthodontic assessment as early as age 7 for children. By identifying early airway problems such as poor tongue position, enlarged tonsils and adenoids and early non-nutritive habits such as thumb sucking, our team can intercept these problems and correct the underlying disorder leading to the jaw imbalance and hence developing crooked teeth. Early treatment can often prevent the need for extraction of teeth due to our abilities to modify the underlying bone and creating more room for the teeth. In so doing we can often enhance the profile by avoiding the damaging effects of extraction orthodontics.
If you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment in Townsville, we are here to help you. At Casey Dentists we provide an initial consultation to families and patients of all ages and at the time of your visit, we’ll discuss whether or not you need orthodontic treatment, and how long it may take to complete.
Results will depend on the teeth’s current state. Generally, teeth straightening using dental braces can be as fast as 6 months or can last up to 2 years. Our Townsville orthodontists can give you an estimate of how long your treatment will be based on their experience with patients who have a similar case. For the Myobrace, depending on compliance, treatment can take 12-18 months.
Dr Matthew Casey has completed a mini-residency in orthodontics with Dr Derek Mahoney at full face orthodontics in Sydney, Australia in 2014-2015. He is NOT an ORTHODONTIST and doesn't restrict his practice to orthodontics, rather he practices all disciplines of dentistry. If you would like a second opinion we are more than happy to organise this for you.
