What You Need To Know

FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale

We understand that you may have questions when seeing a new dentist for the first time. If your concern isn’t addressed
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.

Spacing issues

Excessive gaps between teeth, crowding, and other spacing issues can lead to a variety of dental health problems as well as impact your appearance and self-esteem. For example, big gaps or missing teeth can expose the gums, which makes them vulnerable to gum disease or prone to bacteria. However, crooked teeth can make brushing and flossing difficult. Orthodontic treatments can help in moving teeth into the correct position. This can also prevent problems caused by poor oral hygiene.


Occlusion is the way your teeth align and fit inside your mouth, while malocclusion is the misalignment of your teeth and jaw. An underbite, overbite, crossbite, or misaligned teeth or midline can develop when your teeth are not properly aligned in your mouth. Such issues can make it difficult or uncomfortable to bite, eat, or chew. It can also cause speech difficulties, cosmetic concerns, and frequent inner cheek or tongue biting. Orthodontics treats malocclusions through dental braces, tooth reshaping, and oral surgery.

Protruding teeth

Protrusion occurs when the upper jaw seems more forward than the lower jaw, causing irregular bites and uneven tooth pressure. Severe tooth protrusion may alter your facial structure and jaw bone formation, as well as making it difficult for you to close your lips fully. Untreated tooth protrusion can cause jaw bone loss by putting too much pressure on teeth that touch over time. Most cases of protrusion may be managed with braces, but if the problem is too severe, your dentist may recommend tooth extraction.

Abnormal eruption

When a tooth appears through the gums in the wrong position, this is referred to as an “abnormal eruption.” The condition known as impaction can stop the tooth from growing. Before orthodontic treatment can start, a small oral surgery procedure may be needed to get the tooth out.

The most obvious difference between braces and clear aligners is their appearance.

Traditional metal braces are composed of archwires, brackets, and elastic ties. These parts assist in applying pressure on each tooth that adjusts them into the desired position. Dental braces can correct both mild and major orthodontic problems, which makes them an option almost always.

In contrast, clear aligners are made of clear plastic that makes them nearly invisible. They are custom-made so they can fit securely over your teeth, almost like a mouth guard, but not bulky. Each aligner gradually shifts the teeth closer to their final position. Small composite resin (tooth-coloured filling material) bumps are applied to some teeth. This is to help the aligner grab the tooth and move it properly.

The time length depends on the type of orthodontic appliance, the severity of your case, and other factors.

Realignment of teeth with dental braces may take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years for the majority of people. Your dentist will be able to provide you with an estimate of how long your braces treatment will take.

On the other hand, people who use clear aligners show results in less than two years on average, and it can take as little as six months. Obviously, each smile is unique, and depending on what you require, it may take more or less time.

Interested patients must be evaluated in order to be considered for clear aligners. There are usually tests and scans to get a clear picture of how the jaw is aligned, like x-rays and an oral examination.

While clear aligners can help most people in realigning their teeth, they cannot address all orthodontic issues and may not be the best option for everyone.

At Prospect Road Dental Surgery, we can help you understand if you are a good candidate for this kind of treatment. The best way for us to achieve this for you is to make an appointment at our dental office.


Although your concern may seem to be minor, failing to address overcrowding or uneven spacing requires additional care while cleaning your teeth for the rest of your life. This problem creates tiny nooks and overlaps that make teeth difficult to clean and floss in some cases. Daily flossing helps to prevent cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss by cleaning between your teeth.

Open bite.

It can cause uncomfortable chewing and sometimes speech difficulties. The jaw is forced into an unusual position due to the teeth not meeting correctly, causing discomfort and stress.


Untreated crossbite causes uneven wear on the teeth. It can also cause teeth to chip or shatter in severe cases.


This condition can also lead to wearing out of the teeth. Which eventually results in permanent damage caused by chipping and cracking.

In Australia, the average cost of treatment varies depending on the kind of procedure. For instance, clear aligner treatment varies from $6,500 to $9,500 for an 18-24 month treatment term. Treatments involving only a few teeth may cost less, whereas treatments that require more teeth or need more trays can be more expensive.

Metal braces can cost anywhere between $6,000 and $9,000 for a whole 18-24 month treatment, with rates varying by state. Ceramic braces, on the other hand, can range in price from $6500 to $9500 for the same treatment time. Because of the materials used, this is significantly more expensive than metal braces. During your initial visit, it’s essential to ask your dentist about expenses, payment plans, and whether a percentage of your treatment is covered by health insurance.

Orthodontics is not covered by Medicare. However, depending on your plan coverage, your treatment may be covered by private health insurance.

Every private health insurance policy is unique. If you have an additional policy that includes orthodontics, your treatment may be covered. They have different policies, so it’s important to double-check it with your health insurance provider before getting the treatment.
