Our Orthodontic Services

Our orthodontic philosophy at Dana Street Dental is to create healthy and beautiful faces. For us , it’s not just about straight teeth. We focus on a patient’s full facial profile, lip support, airway and jaw joint.

In children, this includes addressing underlying factors that could influence jaw development and teeth position. For example, lip/tongue tie, thumb sucking, mouth breathing and tongue thrust.

For adults, it is never too late to straighten your teeth at Dana Street Dental. As your dentists offering orthodontics in Ballarat, we are here to help you achieve the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We provide a range of quality orthodontic treatments, no matter your age!

Our dentists will take the time to get to know you and understand your needs and budget before recommending the most suitable orthodontic treatment option.

Once the patient has all their adult teeth, braces are placed to straighten their teeth. Our Ballarat dentists use the revolutionary self-ligating braces by the Damon System. These braces have a slide mechanism that holds the wire, allowing teeth to move freely and comfortably. With the Damon system, we are able to design fuller smiles customised to every patient’s facial profile.
For minor teeth alignment issues, our experienced dentists are also providers for the Inman Aligner. This safe and efficient method can help reposition your teeth in as little as 6 to 18 weeks. An Inman aligner is hardly noticeable in your mouth and removable for your convenience.
Straightening your teeth is now more convenient and discrete than ever with clear aligner systems such as Invisalign. This popular orthodontic treatment involves a series of invisible acrylic trays that gradually align your teeth as braces do. The aligners are removable, allowing easier access for brushing and flossing.

Children's Orthodontics in Ballarat

We love children and have extensive experience in children’s dentistry. Our dental practice has helped to ensure the optimal dental development of many children across Ballarat. As functional orthodontics work best when your child is still growing, our dentists recommend their first orthodontic consultation to be around the age of 7.

For growing children, our initial focus is on dentofacial orthopaedics. Dentofacial orthopaedics refers to improving your child’s airway and promoting proper facial development. This may involve fitting an expansion plate to improve the size of their jaws. We avoid extracting adult teeth wherever possible. We prefer to help your child’s jaws develop to their genetic potential. As the palate expands, so will their nasal and sinus passage – enabling your child to breathe easier through their nose.
