FAQ

An orthodontist is a trained specialist in the field of Orthodontics.  Just like any medical specialist, they have done further study in this specialised field, so are experts in what they do. They are the best, most qualified and experienced people to treat problems with the alignment of jaws and teeth. Whether you see us, or another orthodontist, make sure they are registered Orthodontist!

Yes we do, and we encourage a consultation with our experts if you are unsure or concerned about functional issues, developing crowding, underbites and overbites, and dental protrusions. Early diagnosis and treatment can sometimes prevent a lot of problems further down the track!

In saying this, we are also aware that some problems are far more cost effective to treat when the permanent teeth are mostly through at around 12 years of age. We will not recommend 2 phases of treatment, if one definitive treatment at a later stage will give the same outcome.

You are never too old for orthodontic treatment…

It is never too late to receive orthodontic treatment. We have patients as young as 5, and as old as 70 years of age!  In fact, we see many people begin their smile transformations at a later age. So no matter what your age, if you are having trouble with your teeth or jaws, book an appointment to see what we can do for you.

Yes, you are able to come directly to us without a referral!

If you think you have a problem related to the way your teeth or jaws function, you can book an appointment at our Bondi Junction orthodontic practice for a comprehensive examination. That said, it is important to have a general dentist and if you do not have one, we are more than happy to recommend one for you.

At MyOrthodontist we offer payment plans so you or your children can benefit from the orthodontic care needed. If you are worried about paying for orthodontic treatment for yourself or your family, please call us so we can discuss what we can do for you.

At MyOrthodontist we ensure your first visit to us is always easy and painless. When you book an initial appointment, we will send you a welcome letter and a map with directions to our orthodontic practice in Bondi Junction. If you have not received these please contact us and we will send you another.

Our Orthodontists will thoroughly assess your child’s teeth and jaws to effectively diagnose and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.

For patients who want metal-free, less invasive or obtrusive orthodontic treatment, we recommend Invisalign…

Invisalign is a revolutionary dental treatment that is removable, comfortable and virtually invisible! It is an orthodontic treatment that works around your lifestyle, so you don’t have to change a thing.

It is normally more difficult to take care of the teeth because the braces provide an obstacle between your toothbrush and your teeth…

However, it only takes 3 to 4 minutes, several times per day, to keep them perfectly clean. Be sure to abstain from sticky or flaky foods such as caramel or popcorn!

We first recommend you take your child to a GP to ensure there is nothing more sinister at play. If not, and your child has experience a narrowing of the jaws and dental crowding as a result of their mouth-breathing, we can assess, diagnose and treat their jaw to relieve them of this issue.
