At Smile Central, we offer the following orthodontic treatments:

Streamlined Care

Unlike many dental practices, at Smile Central all routine dentistry including orthodontics is performed under the one roof. Our orthodontic patients have the advantage of visiting our Oral Health Therapist for regular cleans and hygiene support before, during and after their treatment, as well as seeing our dentist for an exam after each clean!

Crowded teeth, misaligned bites and mouth breathing are all common factors which affect facial development in children. Correcting these issues early in life can improve not only the appearance of a child’s smile but more importantly the positioning of the teeth and jaws for better function, preventing other significant issues.

It is never too late to achieve your dream smile-and with modern technology, adult orthodontics has become more discreet than ever.

While many adults are attracted to orthodontics due to the cosmetic results, there are many other health benefits to having straight teeth to consider! Having an aligned smile makes day to day cleaning easier, improves gum health, balances chewing forces more evenly across all teeth, prevents uneven wearing down of front teeth and can even close spaces of missing or previously removed teeth. In many cases, people who require or desire adult orthodontics also have to consider other things relating to their teeth such as

  • Missing teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Broken down or worn teeth (due to misaligned bite)
  • Sleep breathing disorders (snoring, sleep apnoea, clenching and grinding)

We understand that adult orthodontics is an empowering process. Together with careful planning, we will work to comprehensively achieve your unique goals. The initial evaluation and consultation process is detailed in every way. We utilise 3D face scan imaging radiography (CBCT) to formulate, measure, predict and plan for the most favourable outcomes. It is important that you feel involved in this process and through one on one consultations, Dr Chris Lauf will walk you through exactly what to expect from your adult orthodontic treatment with the assistance of our modern technology.
