How long will orthodontic treatment take? Will teeth have to be removed? Find out what to expect from orthodontic treatment.
An orthodontic opinion may be sought to address crowded teeth, thumb sucking, open bite, cross bite, deep bite, under bite, ectopic teeth, impacted teeth, missing teeth, spaced teeth and other problems.
This is difficult to answer without viewing your particular case. Our fees vary depending on the nature and severity of the case; the treatment method and the anticipated treatment duration. Fees usually cover the entire treatment including fitting of braces, adjustments, removal of braces and the supply of retainers and their supervision. However many orthodontic problems require only simple treatment and you might find that the cost is lower than expected. In most cases we are able to provide:
- Interest free payment plan
- Discount for payment in full
- Sibling in treatment discount
Your private health fund will supply information on your particular rebate.
Health benefit Fund schemes offer a rebate on fees paid for orthodontic treatment. The rebate depends on your type of health cover and on how long you have been in the Health Fund. You should discuss the rebate with your Health Fund before making a start with orthodontic treatment. We will provide a Fee Quotation at your consultation which can be taken to your Private Health Fund to discuss rebates for the treatment.
