KIDS AND TEEN ORTHODONTICS
At Toowong Orthodontics we really enjoy treating our younger patients. We make it relaxing for both the patient and parent and we provide a happy and fun environment too.
The way for you to get to know us and feel comfortable with us being your treating orthodontist is at the initial consultation where we always provide an extra long appointment. You get plenty of time to get to know and trust us before committing to any treatment. That’s important.
We’ll not only address our discussion and explanation to the parent but most importantly we’ll involve your child or teenager. We encourage them to ask as many questions as they like. We encourage them to understand what we are talking about, understand the dental problems they may have and be fully informed about what their treatment is going to be. Then once everyone is happy, only then will we go and arrange further times for treatment appointments.
Types of Treatment
These are becoming very popular with teenagers. Since they cost a little more to manufacture than the metal braces, a great combination is to get the ceramic braces for the upper teeth and to leave the metal braces on the lower teeth
Limited earlier age treatment that can save a lot of complex issues and cost later on.This treatment option is reserved for our younger patients, generally up to around 12 years of age.
