How to find a specialist orthodontist in Melbourne
When you’re considering orthodontic treatment, it’s always best to consult a specialist orthodontist in your local area to understand your orthodontic needs. Specialist orthodontists in Melbourne are able to assess the health of your teeth and the alignment of your jaw to give you their expert advice to help you make the best decision.
Melbourne orthodontists are experts at straightening teeth and aligning jaws. They are all AHPRA registered dentists who underwent an additional three years of specialist training to understand the complexities of safely straightening teeth before they became qualified orthodontists.
Is there a specialist orthodontist near me?
Whether you live in Sunbury or South Melbourne, you can find a specialist orthodontist near your home or work to make regular orthodontic appointments easy to manage and maintain. There are even some orthodontic offices in regional Victoria, making it easier than ever for you to find an orthodontist in Shepparton or to speak to an orthodontist in Bacchus Marsh without driving all the way into the Melbourne CBD for your orthodontic appointments.
Can I consult more than one orthodontist?
We understand that Melburnians care about their smiles. Before commencing your orthodontic treatment in Melbourne, you may choose to consult a number of local specialist orthodontists to compare their recommendations and to find a specialist orthodontist you feel comfortable entrusting your teeth with. While there is no set treatment price for orthodontic treatment in Melbourne, we recommend asking for the full details of inclusions and payment details up front, including enquiring about retainers and payment plans, so that you can properly plan for your treatment.
Should I see an orthodontist in Melbourne for clear aligner treatment?
While many companies and providers now offer clear aligner treatment, it’s important to remember that however it is branded, it is still a form of orthodontic treatment. If you’re considering using clear aligners to straighten your teeth, we recommend speaking to an orthodontist in Melbourne to have a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums and jaw prior to commencing any treatment plan. Not everybody’s teeth are suited to clear aligner treatment, so you need the help of a Melbourne-based orthodontic professional to provide you with an honest and safe assessment of your teeth to ensure your treatment is successful.
How do I find an orthodontist in Melbourne?
