Who Needs Orthodontics?

Orthodontics isn’t just about crafting aesthetically pleasing smiles; it’s a specific field addressing various dental issues to ensure proper function and long-term oral health. So, who exactly stands to benefit from orthodontic treatment?

Misaligned Teeth (Malocclusion)

This includes overbites where the upper front teeth overlap the lower teeth excessively, underbites where the opposite occurs, and crossbites where some upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when biting.

Spacing Issues

Whether it’s due to missing teeth or simply natural growth, gaps between teeth can be more than a cosmetic concern. These spaces can become food traps, leading to decay and gum issues.

When there’s insufficient space in the jaw, teeth can overlap, twist, or become staggered. This not only impacts the smile’s appearance but can make cleaning harder, raising the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Protruding Front Teeth

Apart from aesthetic concerns, front teeth that stick out can be more vulnerable to injury and wear.

Incorrect Jaw Position

Some individuals may experience difficulty in chewing, speaking, or even breathing due to mispositioned jaws, which can often be rectified with orthodontic intervention.

Impacted Teeth

Occasionally, teeth fail to emerge from the gum or grow in the wrong direction. This can lead to pain and cyst formation.

Orthodontics addresses a spectrum of dental challenges, enhancing both the smile’s aesthetics and its overall function. If any of these issues resonate, it might be time to consider orthodontic solutions offered by Cumberland Dental.


Types of Braces

Traditional braces

These are strong metallic or tooth coloured ceramic braces with individual brackets cemented onto each tooth. These brackets are connected with an arch wire which exerts constant gentle pressure onto the teeth.


These are clear, tray-shaped aligners which are placed for a certain amount of time daily. They are nearly invisible, can be removed whenever necessary, and these are more comfortable than the traditional braces.

The best part of my profession is transforming patients’ smiles. When I see that look of amazement on someone’s face as they realise they can smile confidently in public without holding their hand over their mouth, it really lights me up inside. This happens every day, but it is always so rewarding to see that lift in self- esteem. Some of my patients really spend a long time looking at everything in the mirror, trying to work out how the magic was done.

Dr. Angela Gaffey

Graduating as one of the youngest from Adelaide University in 1994, Dr. Angela brings extensive experience from various dental institutions to her partnership at Cumberland Dental since 1999.

Adelaide Orthodontics FAQs

What are the most popular orthodontic treatments available in Adelaide?

Adelaide’s dental clinics specialising in orthodontic care offer a diverse range of treatments to suit different dental requirements. The most popular treatments include traditional metal braces, renowned for their effectiveness and cost-efficiency. Ceramic braces and Invisalign aligners are also increasingly popular, especially among adults and teenagers, for those seeking a more discreet option. Additionally, lingual braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth, are offered for individuals prioritising aesthetics however they can severely impact speech in some cases.

For more complex dental issues, these Adelaide dental professionals provide specialised treatments like palatal expanders, jaw repositioning appliances, and surgical orthodontics. Each treatment is specifically designed to address unique alignment issues and can be tailored to the patient’s individual needs.

How can I find a qualified orthodontic provider in Adelaide?

Finding a qualified dental provider in orthodontics in Adelaide involves thorough research and consideration of several factors. Begin by verifying the credentials and experience of the dental provider. Recommendations from family, friends, or your general dentist can also be invaluable. Online reviews and testimonials provide insights into patient experiences.

When choosing a general dentist or an orthodontist, look at the range of treatments offered, the technology and techniques used, and the overall atmosphere of the clinic. It’s also advisable to schedule consultations with a few clinics to discuss your needs, understand the treatment options, and assess your comfort level with the practitioner.

What is the expected cost range for orthodontic treatments in Adelaide?

The expense of orthodontic treatment in Adelaide varies significantly based on the treatment type and complexity. Traditional metal braces generally cost between AUD 5,000 and AUD 98,000, while more aesthetic options like ceramic braces or Invisalign tend to be slightly more expensive, typically ranging between AUD 6,500 and AUD $10,000. Cumberland Dental tends to be at the lower end of these ranges depending on the complexity of the case.

Many clinics specialising in orthodontic care in Adelaide offer detailed consultations to provide personalised cost estimates. To make treatments more accessible, many of these clinics offer flexible payment plans or financing options, allowing patients to pay in instalments over the treatment course.

What should I expect during my first orthodontic consultation in Adelaide?

During your initial consultation at a clinic specialising in orthodontic care in Adelaide, a thorough examination of your teeth, jaws, and facial structure will be conducted. This typically includes taking x-rays, photographs, and digital scans for a detailed assessment of your oral condition. The dental specialist will discuss your dental and medical history, understand your concerns, and evaluate your need for orthodontic treatment.

Based on this assessment, they will outline various suitable treatment options for your case, explaining each pros and cons, estimated duration, and costs involved. This consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and express any concerns. The objective of this initial meeting is to provide you with a clear understanding of your orthodontic needs and to develop a personalised treatment plan.
