Whyte Orthodontics General Treatment


Orthodontic Treatments for Children, Teenagers and Adults

Teeth and jaw abnormalities do occur frequently and Dr Michael Whyte and his team can provide the expertise to correct these. We can also provide advice on the best timing to minimise the cost and time your child is in treatment while maximising the benefits. Dr Whyte and his team can also help create and enhance your smile and many teens and adults can now chew properly and smile confidently as a result of Dr Whyte’s help.

Orthodontic treatment is often needed as the teeth and jaws may have formed in undesirable ways or become crooked and worn with time; teeth can become impacted, turned, crowded, spaced or even missing.  Straight teeth allow you to eat, chew and speak properly and a beautiful smile has been shown to enhance one’s self esteem and improve one’s career prospects. Fortunately these results can be achieved through orthodontic treatment by a qualified specialist in the field such as Dr Whyte. There is also the need to sometimes involve other dental specialists or your local dentist to achieve a good outcome and Whyte Orthodontics often applies a “team” approach for the best possible outcome for our patients.

Orthodontic treatment focuses on straightening teeth, improving gum health and bone structure, improving the aesthetic appearance and correcting your bite. Our experienced team can consult with you and tailor evidence based treatment to achieve a quality lasting result.

We use fixed braces (clear or metal), plates, expansion devices and Invisalign to achieve excellent results.

Appointment intervals are usually every 6 weeks or so. However, this can vary depending on the type of problem and the stage of treatment.

Dr Michael Whyte has experience treating young children, teenagers and adults from age 6 to 75yrs of age. It is never too late to enhance your smile.
