Dr Grant orthodontist - braces Beenleigh | Offering discreet orthodontic braces including "Glam" Clear Braces & the renowned Invisalign aligners Gold Coast

From clear braces to Invisalign, orthodontic treatments have come a long way since the traditional metal braces that were most prevalent in the 90’s. With many of the newer systems focusing on discretion, teens and adults alike are starting to reconsider their choice in younger years to not have braces fitted.

What to expect

Initially the alignment of your jaw will be carefully looked at. It is important the jaw is functioning correctly before we get to work straightening your teeth. After your jaw alignment has been assessed, Dr Grant will discuss with you the treatments offered; customising your treatment to your lifestyle.

During the course of your orthodontic treatment you will notice gradual, subtle movements over a period of time. Regular periodic treatments every eight weeks over the course of twelve to eighteen months are to be expected.

We treat children

80% of our patients are children, as typically orthodontic problems are easier to correct at a younger age. In our experience the best age for children to start orthodontic treatment is around eight years old. Depending on the oral health of the child, if problems are noticed at an earlier age (for example tooth sensitivity) then earlier treatments may be required. Treating your child before they hit teenage years will help to prevent further dental complications from arising.

Our chosen systems

Dr Grant offers Invisalign, clear braces and more. During your orthodontic consultation, Dr Grant will assess your orthodontic needs and discuss with you your options. Our most popular treatments are discussed below.

Invisalign

A series of clear, virtually invisible aligners are moulded to suit your teeth, while gently encouraging them into their new positions. These aligners are removable for convenience whilst eating, brushing and flossing. Initially Dr Grant will assess your teeth and provide you with a virtual guide through the treatment process. Treatments can be carried out in as few as six months depending on your situation, though most commonly treatments last twelve months. Click here for more information about Invisalign.

Clear Braces

The modern alternative to metal braces, Glam brackets are made of a clear ceramic that blend to your teeth. Not dissimilar to metal braces, clear braces are fixed to the teeth (not removable) and combine with archwires to gently coax your teeth into alignment over time, with the help of your dentist. Clear Braces are a more affordable treatment option for most patients than Invisalign.
