Growth Irregularities

When jaw growth does not occur in an ideal way, the result can be an unbalanced (either excessive or deficient) facial profile or miscorrelation of the upper and lower jaws.

Conditions arising from abnormal growth of the jaws can often be intercepted in children so that the condition is prevented from worsening or is corrected entirely. If teeth also need aligning later on, then treatment will often be quicker and easier for the patient and at a reduced cost.


Dentofacial Orthopaedics

Treatment for patients generally up to 12 years of age that can save a lot of complex issues and costs later on. At Toowong Orthodontics we have a particular interest and many years of experience with Dentofacial Orthopaedics. We use powerful removable appliances to correct jaw imbalances of our younger patients who experience jaw growth discrepancies. This treatment will improve the facial profile and chin of patients and, if needed, jaw width can be orthopedically widened so our patients can keep teeth that would otherwise need extraction. Early consultation is highly recommended as this treatment can only be done when the child or teen is growing. Contact us for a consultation to see if this is relevant to your child.


Orthodontic Finance Options

At Toowong Orthodontics we believe the perfect smile should be affordable. It is part of our purpose to ensure that all patients who need orthodontic treatment are able to access it.

We understand that financial situations differ from patient to patient and that the cost of treatment can at first seem significant, so we’re committed to working with you to help create customised payment arrangements that are affordable.

At the initial consultation we are able to provide a number of payment options, including weekly, fortnightly and monthly payment options in conjunction with Denticare, a third party payment plan provider who offer interest-free payment plans for patients.*
