Do you need a referral to see an orthodontist?

In Australia a referral is not needed to see an orthodontist. However, dentists offer good recommendations and usually refer patients.

You can simply call up the orthodontist regarding any concerns and book an appointment.

Why would you see an orthodontist?

If you have any issues regarding dental and facial irregularities, especially regarding teeth and jaw problems, it is best to visit an orthodontist.

Seeing an orthodontist is especially important if dental problems cause you anxiety and stop you from enjoying smiling.

An orthodontist is an expert at fixing issues with your teeth, allowing you to enjoy straight teeth and a healthier smile.

The most important factor of orthodontics is how the bite fits together at the end of treatment.

Bite issues are especially a hassle as they stop people from being able to chew and digest food properly.

We recommend getting orthodontic treatment during teenage years, when your body is still growing, and your jaw is still malleable (easy to be shaped without breaking or cracking).

Seeing an orthodontist during these years makes it easier to fix jaw and dental issues, as the issues only become more complex later on during adulthood.
