Orthodontics for adults
A straight smile whatever your age
We believe you are never too old for the perfect smile. If straight teeth have always been on your wish list, make it happen with us.
Adult treatment options
Crowded or crooked teeth, protruding or ‘bucky’ teeth, deep over-bites or large gaps between your teeth – these are just some of the more common orthodontic problems we see in our adult patients. The good news is, at the Carousel Orthodontic Centre and Margaret River Orthodontics, we have treatments that can correct all these problems and more.
As an adult patient you don’t have to worry about orthodontic treatment affecting your lifestyle. You can still get those straight teeth you’ve always wanted while continuing to work, do the school run, socialise and conduct client meetings. Our range of discreet treatment options, including clear ceramic braces* and Invisalign* aligners mean in some instances, people won’t even know you’re having treatment.
*These products are not available for purchase by the general public. Always follow the directions for use.
Do I need a referral?
You don’t need a referral to have orthodontic treatment, so to get started all you need to do is book your orthodontic consultation with us. This costs $95 but there is no obligation to proceed with treatment.
Benefits of orthodontic treatment
Aside from the obvious improvements in smile esthetics and self-esteem, orthodontic treatment can also lead to improvements in oral health and function. Orthodontic treatment will:
- Create beautiful looking teeth and an attractive smile
- Contribute greatly to facial esthetics
- Enhance your self confidence
- Reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease by improving “cleanability”
- Decrease the risk of irregular or excessive tooth wear
- Help establish normal oral function related to chewing, breathing and speech
- Decrease the risk of dental trauma (accidental chipped, broken or lost teeth)
- Correct improper jaw relationships and reduce stress on the facial muscles and jaw joints

Do I have to wear metal braces?
No. We offer the latest innovative and cosmetic options in orthodontic treatment, particularly for our adult patients. These include tooth-coloured ceramic braces and Invisalign tooth aligners.
How often will I have appointments?
Appointments are scheduled according to each patient's needs. Most patients wearing braces or aligners will be seen every 6-8 weeks. If there are specific situations that require more frequent monitoring, we will schedule appointments accordingly.
