What Is Orthodontics?
Some of the most common dental concerns that patients experience are crooked teeth, a poor bite, and excessive gaps between teeth. Your teeth have an important role in your overall look, and having such dental problems may both harm your oral health, the function of the teeth, and cause cosmetic concerns.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosis and prevention and is used to correct dental problems:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth misalignment
- Incorrect bite patterns (overbite, underbite)
- Gaps or spacing issues.
- Abnormal tooth growth.
Orthodontics is considered to address both function and aesthetic concerns and improve the appearance of your smile.

Clear aligners are a non-metal alternative to traditional braces that are used to move teeth into their right position. Clear aligners, like braces, use a progressive force to control tooth movement, but without the use of metal wires or brackets. The aligners are composed of a durable plastic material and are custom-fit. If a series of aligners is required, each aligner gradually moves the teeth until the necessary movement is attained.
Invisible aligners are virtually invisible, so they are the best orthodontic alternative for adults and teens.

FAQ’s About Orthodontic Treatment
There is no set age for the first orthodontist appointment.
Treatment with dental braces generally begins between the ages of eight and fourteen, after a child has lost most of the baby (primary) teeth, and a majority of the adult (permanent) teeth have formed. If treatment is required during this period, interceptive or preventive care can take advantage of your child’s growth and help guide the intended result during development.
The area of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, positioning, and correction of misaligned teeth is called orthodontics.
Dental issues that orthodontic treatments can fix are the following:
- Overcrowded and Misaligned Teeth
- Poor bite or malocclusions (underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite, and overjet).
- Gum problems
- Misaligned jaw
- Misaligned dental midlines.
- Abnormal eruption of the tooth.
- Problems with chewing.
Any dentist is legally allowed to provide orthodontic treatment, however specialist orthodontists have completed at least another three years of full-time training in addition to their primary dental degree to become specialists.
A specialist is preferable because they have a necessary degree in orthodontics and are better equipped to handle a wide range of cases and treat issues relating to dental occlusion and alignment.
Clear aligners are made of plastic and custom-fit to your teeth. They are a good option for individuals who want a more discrete orthodontic treatment than conventional braces since they do not have brackets or wires. They correct teeth in the same way as braces do, but with a clear, removable aligner. Additionally, clear aligners are usually recommended for minor orthodontic problems.
Traditional metal braces have rubber bands and metal wires which are used to provide force to help move the teeth into the correct position.
While aligners can fix the majority of orthodontic cases, braces can treat all cases, even complex ones. That suggests dental braces are always an option.
It is nearly impossible to estimate the total cost of treatment without an initial consultation. This is due to the fact that the cost of orthodontics is determined by a number of factors, including the length and complexity of treatment, as well as the type of treatment you prefer. With that said, here is a rough estimate of how much a full course of orthodontic treatment will cost in Australia:
- Metal braces – Full arch banding – per arch: $2998.46
- Lingual braces – Full arch banding – per arch: $2998.46
- Invisalign – Sequential plastic aligners – per arch: $3131.54
- Orthodontic plate or appliance: $1321.49
- Clear aligners: $6,500 – $9,500
