What Is Orthodontics and How Can It Help Me?

According to the Australian Society of Orthodontists, an orthodontist is a university-educated dental specialist with a postgraduate degree who is trained in “the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental and facial irregularities”. Orthodontics covers the study and treatment of these areas and, while they are mostly known for straightening your smile, an orthodontist can assist you in a wide range of areas.

At Tony Weir Orthodontics, our team has almost 30 years of experience specialising in braces, Invisalign, and other orthodontic treatments. With Platinum certification from Invisalign and the best dental technology in Brisbane, we can achieve affordable, effective results including almost invisible braces, appliances with discreet wires, and importantly, a beautiful, straight smile.

What an Orthodontist Can Treat

We specialise in providing a beautiful, perfectly straight smile that is healthy, long-lasting and free from discomfort. Orthodontists achieve this by providing tailored treatment options, such as lingual braces, and excellent post-treatment care.

Orthodontics can help you with:

  • straightening misaligned teeth and uneven smiles
  • improving uncomfortable and dangerous bites
  • long-lasting aesthetic results for your smile
  • aligning your jaws correctly
  • assisting with tooth movement caused by thumb sucking, gum disease etc

How to Choose an Orthodontist

Your orthodontist should not only be fully qualified but ideally, a leader in their field. This means they should be equipped with advanced orthodontic technology, as well as being recognised by their peers both locally and internationally. Read more about choosing an orthodontist and the things you should consider before your first appointment.

What’s the Difference between an Orthodontist and a Dentist?

While they work together to maintain a healthy smile for you, dentists and orthodontists each serve different and important roles. Generally speaking, while dentists care for your broader oral health, orthodontists specialise in issues relating to teeth straightening, alignment, bite patterns, and other dental and facial irregularities.
