Orthodontics Explained: Beyond Cosmetic Appeal
While many perceive orthodontics primarily as a means to achieve aesthetic perfection, its scope extends far beyond that. Orthodontics, a specialised branch of dentistry, focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. The objectives are manifold: ensuring proper bite alignment, facilitating effective oral hygiene, and optimising facial balance.

Frequently Asked Questions
While there’s no definitive age to begin orthodontic treatment, the Australian Society of Orthodontists recommends children have their first orthodontic assessment around the age of 7. Early evaluation allows us to identify potential issues and plan timely interventions, if needed. However, it’s never too late for adults to seek orthodontic treatment and achieve a well-aligned smile.
The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the individual’s specific needs and the treatment method chosen. On average, traditional braces might be worn for about 18 to 24 months, while clear aligners often require 12 to 18 months. However, each case is unique, and during your consultation at Coastal Dental, we’ll provide a more accurate estimate tailored to your situation.
Yes, retainers are a crucial phase of orthodontic treatment. Once braces or aligners have shifted your teeth to their desired positions, retainers help maintain that alignment and prevent teeth from reverting to their original positions. Depending on the individual and the treatment undertaken, retainers might be worn full-time initially and eventually only during the night.
With traditional and ceramic braces, it’s advisable to avoid certain foods that could damage the brackets or wires. Sticky, hard, or overly crunchy foods such as caramel, nuts, and hard candies should be consumed with caution or avoided altogether. With clear aligners, they can be removed during meals, offering more dietary flexibility.
Regular check-ups are vital to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments. Typically, patients with braces are seen every 6–8 weeks, while those with clear aligners might have appointments at slightly different intervals. At Coastal Dental, we’ll provide a clear schedule tailored to your treatment plan, ensuring optimal results with minimal disruptions to your daily life.
