Expert Orthodontics Melbourne
Experience Our Professional and Effective Orthodontic and Teeth Straightening Services in 3 Convenient Locations Across Melbourne.
Are you tired of hiding your smile due to crooked or misaligned teeth? Do you feel self-conscious about and wish for a straighter, more confident smile?
Orthodontic treatments, such as braces, are designed to correct crooked or misaligned teeth, ensuring a proper fit.
By addressing these issues, orthodontics not only enhances your smile but also contributes to your overall oral health. Crooked teeth can be more challenging to clean, increasing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
At Smile Place, we offer a range of alternative treatment options alongside traditional orthodontics. We invite you to schedule an assessment to explore these alternatives and find the best choice for your specific requirements.

When Is Orthodontic Treatment Needed?
You may be interested in orthodontic treatment if you experience one or more of the following:
- Overbite: This occurs when the upper front teeth extend too much over the lower teeth.
- Underbite: This condition is characterised by the lower jaw’s teeth projecting too far forward or the upper teeth being too far back.
- Open Bite: A gap exists between the biting surfaces of the front teeth and/or the back teeth when the rear teeth are clenched.
- Asymmetrical Centre Line: This happens when the centreline of the upper front teeth does not align with the centreline of the lower front teeth.
- Uneven Spacing: This refers to gaps or spaces between the teeth due to missing teeth or teeth that don’t fully occupy the jaw.
- Crowding: This condition arises when there isn’t adequate space for the teeth on the dental ridge.

What Are The Benefits Of Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatments like braces help move and align teeth that are crooked or that do not fit together right.
By fixing these problems, teeth straightening treatments can:
- Straighten Crooked Teeth: Orthodontic treatments effectively align and straighten crooked teeth, enhancing both their appearance and functionality.
- Improve Oral Health and Hygiene: By properly aligning your teeth, orthodontics eliminates hard-to-reach areas, making it easier to clean and reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
- Enhance Facial Aesthetics: Beyond the benefits to your teeth, orthodontics contributes to improved overall facial aesthetics by enhancing the symmetry and harmony of your smile.
- Boost Self-Confidence: A beautifully aligned smile can have a profound impact on your self-confidence, empowering you to face the world with a renewed sense of self-assurance.

How long does orthodontic treatment typically take?
The length of your orthodontic treatment can differ based on how complex your situation is. Typically, the process could take anywhere from a few months to several years. During your first consultation, our dental experts will offer you a customised plan, complete with an approximate timeframe.
Are orthodontic treatments painful?
Orthodontic treatments may initially lead to some discomfort or during adjustments, but the sensation is generally manageable and short-lived. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help ease any soreness. Our dental experts will provide guidance on how to minimise discomfort and make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
Can I still play sports or musical instruments with braces or aligners?
Yes! Braces and aligners should not hinder your ability to play sports or musical instruments. We recommend wearing a mouthguard during sports activities to protect your teeth and orthodontic appliances. Aligners can be temporarily removed during playing instruments, but it is important to wear them consistently for the recommended duration each day.
How often should I visit for adjustments during my orthodontic treatment?
Typically, orthodontic adjustments are scheduled every 4-8 weeks. These appointments allow our dental experts to monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments to your appliances, and ensure your treatment is on track. Regular visits are crucial for successful outcomes.
Can I still eat my favourite foods during orthodontic treatment?
While there are some dietary restrictions, you can still enjoy most of your favourite foods during orthodontic treatment. Hard, sticky, or chewy foods should be avoided to prevent damage to braces or aligners. Our team will provide a comprehensive list of foods to avoid and offer guidance on maintaining a healthy and braces-friendly diet.
How do I maintain good oral hygiene with braces or aligners?
Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential during orthodontic treatment. Brushing your teeth after every meal and flossing daily is crucial. With braces, we recommend using special orthodontic brushes and floss threaders for effective cleaning. Aligners can be easily removed for regular brushing and flossing. Our team will provide detailed instructions and tips for optimal oral hygiene.
