Orthodontic Treatments For Kids

Growing and maturing teeth require the best possible service from the most experienced Orthodontic experts. Orthoworx specialises in braces for kids and kids’ plates, giving your child the best possible opportunity to enjoy a straighter, smarter smile.

Brighter teeth development

The optimal age for teeth development is while the teeth develop and change, between 8-13 years of age. But kids’ braces can be given to any good candidate, so it is essential to visit a highly qualified Orthodontist to discover how your child can best be treated.

Any colour any size

Every set of teeth is different, requiring a different, personalized approach. Orthoworx can administer child plates and children’s braces for kids of all ages, including Invisalign, lingual or the colourful and child-friendly traditional varieties. Whatever treatment we recommend you can be sure that our experienced Orthodontists will only recommend the best possible treatment to treat your concern with maximum efficiency and minimal inconvenience to you and your child.

The earliest age to receive child orthodontic treatment is age 10 as per Australian Fair Dental.

The overall costs of your kids’ braces depends on the complexity of their treatment and the initial consultation. On average, a treatment plan for traditional metal braces in Australia will vary between $5,000 – $9,000 . Costs of child braces cover x-ray evaluations of your child’s teeth, a bite assessment, dental impressions to discover the most effective course of treatment, and regular checkups once they’re on. Additional treatment like palatal expanders and other devices to correct your child’s bite can factor into costs.

Your private health insurance may be able to cover your child’s orthodontic treatments. Once the treatment plan is provided to you, it includes item numbers for each treatment option for your child. You can use the item to find out your rebate details, including the treatment type, estimated length of treatment, total cost of treatment etc. At the clinic, bring in your private health insurance card, and our staff can determine your rebate for you. Alternatively, contact your fund directly to see just how much you are eligible. Medicare will only cover the cost of your child’s braces under the Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Scheme.

Please let me know if this is correct to their services

Orthodontics is dependent on your child and the complexity of their bite issue. While there is no set age, we advise that they receive braces between the ages of 10 and 14 when the head, jaw and mouth are growing and are more adaptive to corrective treatment.
