Orthodontics focuses not only in straightening misaligned teeth but also in addressing bite defects and jaw alignment problems.
It uses orthodontic appliances designed to the measurement and specific needs of the patient. This equipment is worn in the mouth until an ideal result is achieved.
The orthodontic treatment can last up to years, depending on your case. Hence, we recommend having the treatment while young, when results can be achieved more quickly.
We encourage parents to bring their child for an orthodontic evaluation in as early as 7 years old. The evaluation assesses potential problems that could be treated by orthodontics.

Orthodontic Options in Moorabbin
With modern dentistry, there are different orthodontic options you can choose from.
At Captivate Dental, you can take advantage of the following treatments:
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment, especially liked by adults. The removable trays are made of clear polyurethane or virtually invisible material.
Each tray is custom-made for each patient. The trays discreetly shift the teeth into an ideal position.
Each tray is worn for two weeks, around 20-22 hours per day. The trays should only be removed when eating, brushing, and rigorous sports activities.
These are often referred to as conventional braces. They are visible and give the “train track” look.
Today, this type of braces is smaller, making them less noticeable and more comfortable than before.
The Orthodontic Treatment Procedure
An initial orthodontic evaluation is conducted first. X-rays, impressions of the teeth and jaw, and assessment of bite is part of the evaluation.
The result of the examination will be the basis for your treatment plan.
Included in your orthodontic plan will the dos and don’ts and what to expect when you wear the orthodontic appliance.
There are some situations in which tooth extraction is required to achieve the desired alignment. This is usually performed in case of crowded teeth.
Once your measurements are taken, your custom-made braces will be installed. Follow-up check-ups will be scheduled.
