Frequently asked questions
answers to some of our most frequently asked questions or browse through below for more information.
Major medical insurance plans do not typically include dental coverage. This is the most common misconception when it comes to braces and orthodontics. To have this type of procedure done, you need some form of supplemental plan that you must purchase separately.
Here are some signs that show your child might need Dental braces:-
- Baby teeth were lost at an early age
- crowded (or crooked) teeth
- Thumb sucking is prolonged
- Pain in the mouth or jaw
- Misaligned jaws
- Spaces or gaps between the teeth
- Mouth breathing
- Difficulty in speaking and chewing
The price for orthodontic treatment depends on several factors, including how long and complicated the treatment will be plus what type you choose. That said, here are some guidelines about what kind of money you should expect to spend if you’re looking into a complete set of dental care in Australia:
- Metal braces (traditional braces): $6,000 – $9,000
- Ceramic braces: $6,500 – $9,500
- Lingual braces: $9,500 – $15,000
- Clear aligners: $6,500 – $9,500
There is no exact age when a child should get braces. As such, parents need to be proactive and visit an orthodontist for their first consultation before the start of school or earlier if they suspect any problems with speech.
The American Academy of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends children visit an orthodontist for the first time no later than 7 years old to evaluate airway, bite and oral habits, and determine whether braces are necessary from this point onwards.
Now that my child has braces, do I still need to take my child to see the dentist for cleanings and checkups?
- Once your child’s braces are on, your orthodontist will be monitoring and adjusting them for a couple of weeks.
- Your child must have a six-month cleaning by the dentist or orthodontist or as recommended.
