Your safety is our utmost priority. In response to the Victorian Government’s lockdown, and as per the Australian Dental Association guidelines, appointments have been restricted.
There are certain procedures that can proceed. The patient’s that can still be seen will be contacted to confirm that their appointment will be going ahead as planned.
If your appointment doesn’t fall into this category, your appointment will be cancelled and we will be in touch to re-schedule as soon as possible.
One of the loveliest things to see is a child’s face light up with a smile, but what if your child is embarrassed to smile because of their teeth? And what if there is something that you could do to fix it? Would you?
At Lavrin & Lawrence Orthodontics, we’re here to work with you to create a smile for your child they’ll wear with confidence for a lifetime.
As part of our Invisalign treatment offering here at Lavrin & Lawrence Orthodontics, we can treat our younger patients using Invisalign First aligners. These aligners work just the same as the aligners worn by teens and adults – they’re custom made to your child’s teeth and jaws to ensure a comfortable fit and they’re removable, so your child can take them out at meal times and when brushing their teeth.
But why would your child need orthodontic treatment at such an early age you ask?
The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) recommends children have an early orthodontic consultation by the age of 7 – and here in the clinic we agree. At this time in a child’s life, they will usually have all their adult teeth, but there is still plenty of time for us to take a proactive approach to ensure they have straight healthy teeth for life.
Does your child need orthodontic treatment?
There are several things you can do to determine whether your child could benefit from orthodontic treatment:
Some of the benefits of ensuring your child has an early orthodontic consultation with a specialist orthodontist is so we can:
Invisalign First aligners are a great introduction to orthodontic treatment. They’re comfortable to wear and effective at preparing the teeth for any treatment your child may require. What’s more, because the aligners are removable, it gives your child the freedom to enjoy being a child without orthodontic treatment impacting on their lifestyle.
If you would like to speak with our specialist orthodontists about the best approach to treatment for your child, book an early consultation with our team today. Together, we can ensure your child has a smile they’ll show off for life!
Invisalign aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
