We offer all orthodontic services
Orthodontics help with teeth straightening which not only improves the appearance of your teeth, but also improves their function. Traditional Braces are usually made of metal which are visible when you smile. These days, you could even opt for clear braces, made of tough ceramic, which are almost invisible, and yet highly effective.
Other Orthodontic appliances can be used either preceeding or together with braces like arch expanders, functional and orthopaedic appliances, removable orthodontic plates,
We offer all orthodontic services as well as sequential clear plastic aligners at our clinic in Baxter. We are known for our professionalism and precision when it comes to dental braces, which sees us receiving patients from nearby suburbs like Mornington.
Invisalign /Clear correct Aligners
These are a very good alternative to traditional braces for adults. These serial aligners are being used by an increasing number of orthodontists today, to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires and brackets. These modern aligners are virtually invisible and are removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
We offer both traditional and modern options for dental braces at our clinic near Mornington.
How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?
Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective.
Orthodontic treatment is not a quick fix. Your care often starts with a thorough examination of the teeth and mouth, and study of dental records such as x-rays, photos and models of the teeth. From this detailed information, a customised treatment plan is made.
Orthodontic treatment can yield life-enhancing results: better function (biting, chewing, speaking), improved appearance and increased self-esteem. Having been in practice for 30 years and with a team of experienced dentists, Baxter Dental Surgery is considered to be among the most reputed clinics for dental braces in the Mornington, Baxter and Stony Point areas.

Overbite, sometimes called “buck teeth” – Where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth
Underbite – A “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
Crossbite – When the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
Open bite – Space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
Misplaced midline – When the centre of your upper front teeth does not line up with the centre of your lower front teeth
Spacing – Gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth
