Laser + Holistic Dental treats orthodontic patients with the philosophy that preserving natural teeth is a far better result than extracting teeth. We focus on developing the jaw to improve breathing, natural biomechanics and to create an attractive, cosmetically pleasing smile.
At Laser + Holistic Dental we have a careful and thorough approach to orthodontics for children – developing the jaw bone in stages throughout the child’s growth to create great results. Specialists recommending extraction of teeth or jaw surgery are usually approaching a problem from a speed perspective – which in our opinion is a shortsighted approach.
Extracting teeth to deal with overcrowding will mean children develop with narrow dental arches, reduced airway volume and large gaps in the sides of their smiles.
At Laser + Holistic Dental we have never needed to extract a child’s permanent tooth due to crowding problems.
Depending on the age of the child, there are a number of treatment options available. Laser + Holistic Dental prefers Invisalign for most orthodontic treatments – suitable for children in their teen years.
Invisalign is an alternative to braces that is virtually invisible. It is hygienic, comfortable and is a healthier alternative than metal braces for the patient.
For young children we offer a range of plate designs to direct favourable growth, align teeth, improve airway volume and the child’s natural biomechanics.
Get a free assessment with one of our dentists to see if Invisalign is right for you.
A free Invisalign consultation runs for 10-15 minutes and covers the key questions:
- Will Invisalign work for me?
- How long will Invisalign take?
- How much will Invisalign cost?
By the end of the Invisalign consultation we will have a good understanding of your goals and expectations so we can advise you on the best course of treatment.
To organise a free Invisalign consultation – please request a call back here and one of our staff will be in touch shortly.
