Teeth should fit together neatly in the upper and lower jaws. When they don’t, it raises the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that detects and repairs teeth and jaw alignment abnormalities using appliances like braces and plates.

Issues you may be experiencing
When determining if children require braces, there are certain indicators to look for. Teeth that are crooked or crowded, a big overbite or underbite, crossbites, and jaw asymmetries are all examples of these signs.
Early or late loss of baby teeth can also signify needing braces. Habits such as thumb sucking and breathing predominantly through the mouth may also serve as warning signs.
Teeth that are visibly misaligned or cluttered are obvious signs that you need braces for adults. Other symptoms may include difficulties with flossing and brushing around crooked teeth. Biting your tongue and cutting your tongue on your teeth are both behaviours that indicate you require braces.
Why do you need orthodontic treatment?
Teeth that are crooked, crowded, and overlapping can cause a variety of problems, such as:
- Gum disease, tooth decay, and gingivitis are all problems that can affect your teeth. Teeth that are very close together may be more difficult to clean properly. Plaque buildup may also lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
- If a tooth does not properly align with its partner on the opposite jaw, it may dig into the gum and cause harm.
- Tooth wear and tear is caused by chewing and grinding with a misaligned bite. If teeth don’t sit correctly, the action of chewing can wear them unevenly.
- Aesthetic teeth issues can make individuals feel embarrassed and uncomfortable smiling.
The Cost of Braces at Dental Boutique Melbourne
Dental Boutique offers payment plans starting from $100 per week. The cost of braces varies based on the severity of damage, the number of teeth that need work, the materials used, whether additional services are required and many other factors.

Braces and Other Alternatives
Traditionally braces are made of metal; however, over the years, there have been many alternatives created made of different materials and also following completely different structures, all with one purpose – to correct the individual’s bite and align their teeth.
We offer the following options for treating misaligned teeth at our Melbourne Orthodontic Clinic.
Lingual braces are worn on the back of your teeth and are virtually undetectable to the naked eye. They’re most often used to correct issues with the six top and bottom teeth. As the name implies, lingual braces are placed on your teeth’ tongue (rear) side and are totally unnoticeable to others.
Treatment time usually lasts 4 to 6 months, but it may be longer depending on your situation.
Lingual braces are not suitable for every patient, and your suitability will be determined during your initial consultation.
Ceramic braces are a less noticeable alternative to metal braces since they’re constructed of materials that match your natural teeth’ colour. Because of this, ceramic braces are mostly used on adults and teenagers who have aesthetic issues. Ceramic braces, although less visible, need greater care for oral hygiene than their metal counterparts because they are larger and more brittle.
Ceramic braces are not suitable for every patient, and your suitability will be assessed during your initial consultation.
The most common type of orthodontic treatment, traditional metal braces, has effectively treated misaligned teeth for decades.
At Dental Boutique, our dentists employ a comfortable bracket system that is tailored to each patient for quicker outcomes with less therapy time for the benefit of the patient. Dental Boutique will totally customise your orthodontic and dental strategy to get the most significant outcomes, whether you need braces on your bottom teeth, top, or both.
Metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch-wires. You may decorate your smile with coloured elastics (rubber bands); this includes choosing clear elastic to create a discrete aesthetic.
Invisalign treatment utilises a system of clear aligners that are invisible and removable for convenience, confidence, and minimal disruption to your daily life. The aligners are composed of 3D scans of your teeth and meticulously tailored to produce the smile of your dreams. Our in-house method offers a completely personalised, aesthetically appealing, and practical result.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are placed over your natural teeth to give you a new surface, form, and colour. They’re comprised of translucent tooth-coloured porcelain and provide a durable beauty treatment for your dental aesthetic issues.
