What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is aimed at diagnosing, preventing and treating problems associated with the growth and alignment of teeth and jaws within the overall facial structures of children and adults.
Orthodontic treatments can significantly:
- Improve the aesthetics of the teeth and face,
- Improve the ability to chew and speak,
- Improve the patient’s self-esteem, and
- Reduce the need for future dental treatment.
What’s involved in orthodontic treatment(s)
Orthodontic treatments may include the design and use of corrective orthodontic appliances such as:
- Functional appliances, and
With the aim of bringing the teeth, lips and jaws into improved alignment with the facial structures.
What’s the best age for orthodontic treatment(s)?
Patients with orthodontic needs can benefit from treatment at any age, every person is different and there is no one rule that fits all.
One thing that can be said for certain is that an early orthodontic evaluation will ultimately benefit the patient. The earlier that a need for orthodontic treatment is identified the earlier that a practitioner can start:
- Preventative treatment if applicable,
- Corrective treatment to avoid any further complications resulting from leaving the problems untreated for long.
How much would orthodontic treatment(s) cost?
The cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on each individual’s situation and the type of treatment that they require.
A down payment of around 20 – 30% is due at the start of the treatment with equal monthly or fortnightly instalments for the next 6 or 12 months, or for the remaining length of the treatment.

Clear Aligners: The Smart and Discreet Orthodontic Solution
It doesn’t matter how old you are; crooked teeth and improper bites can negatively impact your dental health and confidence. At Civic Plaza Dental Care, we understand that traditional metal braces may not be for everyone, so we offer aligners as a modern, discreet orthodontic solution. With our clear aligners, you can straighten your teeth, improve your bite, and achieve a confident, healthy smile
Confidence Boosting Discretion
One of the main advantages of clear aligners is that they are virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without the social stigma of metal braces. Our orthodontic aligners are made from a transparent plastic material that seamlessly blends with your teeth, so no one needs to know you are undergoing treatment unless you tell them. This makes them an ideal option for people with public-facing jobs or who are worried about their appearance.
Eat Your Favourite Foods with Ease
Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are removable, making it easier to enjoy your favourite foods and maintain good oral hygiene. You won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces or breaking your brackets. However, brushing your teeth after each meal is essential to prevent staining and tooth decay. So, carry a toothbrush and toothpaste with you everywhere you go to stay on top of your oral hygiene.
Comfortable and Irritation-free
If traditional braces have deterred you from correcting your teeth, clear aligners may be a more comfortable and less bothersome alternative. Clear aligners are made from a smooth plastic material that reduces the likelihood of irritation and discomfort from wires or brackets rubbing against your mouth. This makes it easier for you to go about your daily activities while experiencing minimal disruption from treatment.
Shorter Treatment Period
Clear aligners can lead to faster treatment times compared to traditional braces, which may take up to two years. Most patients using clear aligners wear them for only 12 to 18 months, depending on their individual situation. Plus, adhering to the prescribed schedule of aligner usage and regular check-ins with your dentist increases the chances of sticking to your treatment timeline accurately.
Better Oral Health
Misaligned teeth pose a challenge when brushing and flossing. You may accumulate plaque and bacteria around crowded areas, which increases the risk of tooth decay, gum infection, and other oral health issues. With clear aligners, we can help you straighten your teeth, making it easier to maintain optimal oral hygiene. You’ll also benefit from fewer cavities, gum problems, and bad breath.
