Orthodontics Cairns

Our orthodontic treatments can help you achieve a straight smile

Having straight teeth is a big part of a healthy smile. It helps with the overall health of your teeth as brushing and flossing can become easier, reducing the likelihood of decay. If you have crooked or irregular teeth, an improper bite or disproportionate jaw, we provide a range of orthodontic solutions.

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with straightening crooked or misaligned teeth. At Future Dental, we are proud to provide orthodontic treatment to our patients and are ecstatic with the results patients see from their orthodontic experience.

One of the lesser understood but one of the most vital roles of this field of dentistry relates to development of the airway and proper breathing, swallowing and speech in children. Through moving your teeth to a corrected position, we are able to enhance one’s smile as well as its function.

Orthodontic problems caused by a narrow crowded dental arch and high palate can include sleep disordered breathing and even sleep apnoea in many cases, in addition to mouth breathing, frequent tonsil infections and development of a long face.

Early diagnosis is essential to ensure correct facial skeletal growth and a team approach is often required to manage children who snore, are mouth breathers, suffer frequent tonsillitis and middle ear infections and, even if we do not think we are the best to treat these problems with kids, we will see the child is referred to the ENT Surgeon, Sleep Specialist or Orthodontist.

Crowded crooked teeth are often a sign of far more threatening health issues for a child and should be assessed by your dentist generally even before your doctor.

Recent technological advances and changes in bracket design have made orthodontic treatment options more comfortable and efficient so that desired outcomes are achieved in much shorter treatment periods. Treatment was traditionally performed on children and teenagers. While this is still the best time to identify and treat these issues, we now treat people of all ages and find that adult orthodontics is rapidly growing in popularity. This means it’s never too late for straight and beautiful teeth.

Our state of the art treatments use some of the most modern techniques available.


What is the best age for braces in Cairns?

Many people believe that undergoing orthodontic treatment is most effective for children under the age of 10. This is true because the earlier a problem is spotted the easier it is to fix it, but at the same time, orthodontics for adults can be just as effective in resolving dental issues.

What is the best open bite orthodontic treatment?

An open bite occurs when the upper and lower teeth don’t meet when the jaw is closed. Orthodontics can be used to solve this problem, whether it’s braces or Clear Aligners. Treatment can be used to either shift the upper teeth down or to shift the lower teeth up so that the teeth meet. Sometimes the best result is achieved combining this treatment with orthognathic surgery.

Are payment plans available for the cost of treatment?

At Future Dental, we are able to offer flexible interest free payment plans so you are able to access orthodontic appliances and orthodontic care.
