Orthodontic Options in Belconnen
When it comes to orthodontic work, many Hawker families choose to undergo their treatment right here at Hawker Dental. Dr Graham Shaw is a general dentist with a particular interest in orthodontics. He has over 30 years of experience providing braces to his patients.
Fixed traditional braces are appropriate for people of all backgrounds and bite needs. Even if your situation is more complex, we may be able to help.
These orthodontic appliances work the same as traditional braces, but the brackets are made of ceramic material for the top front teeth. Their colour allows the ceramic to blend in for a less noticeable appearance.
Early Intervention (“Plates”)
Children often require interceptive orthodontics with removable appliances to prevent future treatment from being less involved. If they have a crossbite or front teeth sticking out, early intervention can help a bit to avoid an accident.
Some people prefer to not wear traditional metal braces. Clear aligners (similar to Invisalign) are a perfect alternative. The clear aligners move your teeth without wires or brackets. Plus, they can be removed during meals and for home care. Made from translucent plastic, the aligners are so clear that most people will not be able to see them over your teeth.
