Your safety is our utmost priority. In response to the Victorian Government’s lockdown, and as per the Australian Dental Association guidelines, appointments have been restricted.
There are certain procedures that can proceed. The patient’s that can still be seen will be contacted to confirm that their appointment will be going ahead as planned.
If your appointment doesn’t fall into this category, your appointment will be cancelled and we will be in touch to re-schedule as soon as possible.

Treatment for children

At Modern Orthodontics, we believe early orthodontic treatment is highly beneficial. Being able to assess a child’s teeth and identify any growth problems at this early stage can potentially save a great deal of time and money later in life.

What is early orthodontic treatment?

Early treatment as preventive and interceptive treatments for children whose jaws are still growing into place. By starting early treatment, we can sometimes shorten the length of orthodontic treatment later in a child’s life (or do away with the need for it altogether).

What will happen at my child’s appointment?

When you bring your child in for a free consultation at Modern Orthodontics, our Specialist Orthodontists will look at their:

  • Jaw development
  • Airway
  • Arch size

 What will happen at my child’s appointment?

  • Tongue posture and positioning
  • Jaw posture
  • Tooth placement
  • Head/ neck

They are looking to see if any of the above exhibit abnormalities. In some instances, we may recommend immediate treatment, but it is more common for us to monitor these abnormalities and then fit an appliance at a suitable time in the future.

Benefits of early treatment

Bringing your child into Modern Orthodontics for an early consultation has a number of benefits:

  • We can prevent problems before they occur
  • We can reduce the extent of treatment that may be required
  • We can help to establish a good oral hygiene routine with your child
  • Your child can get used to an orthodontic environment - making them feel more comfortable when treatment start

Invisalign® First for children

One of the types of early treatment we offer is Invisalign® First. Invisalign® First is an Invisalign® treatment designed specifically for children. These smooth, comfortable aligners are custom made to guide the growth of your child’s jaws and make space for current and incoming teeth.

Invisalign® clear aligners are removable, so Invisalign® First treatment won’t get in the way of their normal eating and hygiene routines. It’s a wonderful, gentle way to introduce your child to the world of orthodontics.

*Invisalign® aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label as well as the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
