Orthodontics

We are fortunate in our regional area to have the services of Orthodontists, who consult in their rooms in Port Lincoln and provide services in Adelaide. During a regular dental exam we will discuss with you any needs for orthodontic treatment and arrange a referral letter and consult appointment either in Port Lincoln or Adelaide.

Orthodontic treatment is used to realign teeth, correct your bite (occlusion) or to create spaces for implant placement. Often it is necessary to take an initial OPG x-ray which is also forwarded on to the orthodontist prior to your appointment with them. We continue with your regular exams and should you undergo treatment we receive regular updates on your orthodontic progress.

While you are wearing braces, it is essential that you take extra care of your teeth and gums.
