Benefits of orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontics is not just about straightening crooked teeth. In many cases, the jaws are misaligned, which can affect chewing, speech and appearance. It can also lead to painful problems such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, which have symptoms including headaches, facial pain, ringing of the ears, and dizziness.

Most current orthodontic thinking recognises the importance of tongue position in swallowing, speech and feeding, along with adequate airways being important for a child’s normal development. Indeed the correct functioning of the muscles and soft tissues around the teeth play a big part in whether a malocclusion develops or not. There is an opportunity to modify this growth in earlier stages of development. Something as simple as using a laser to free a tongue tie along with myofunctional therapy, can have life changing effects. The reduction of a malocclusion can assist in providing a more stable orthodontic result (after braces), better breathing (less likely issues with snoring and sleep apnoea, which can be life threatening) and improved posture/ brain function. So as you can see the stakes are high and there are not only aesthetic benefits to orthodontic assessment and treatment.

Many parents assume that it is simpler to wait until the child is older and then correct all his or her problems at once. However, early treatment can have many benefits including:

  • Facilitating development of proper speech
  • Guiding the development of the jaw and permanent teeth
  • Boosting your child’s confidence
  • Reducing or eliminating the need for orthodontics later

Benefits of growth predictive technology

We use special software that accurately predicts the growth pattern and growth rate of the jaw. It provides detailed data with a high degree of precision, allowing us to customise each child’s treatment for the best possible outcome. Using this software, we can better answer your questions about various options, such as timelines and results. Helping you to make informed decisions about your child’s treatment.

The first step is a clinical evaluation. If potential problems are detected, we will work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan. If there are no apparent problems, you can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that braces won’t be needed.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
