It is the recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists, which is also endorsed by the South African Society of Orthodontists that all children from the ages of 7 years and above should be screened by an orthodontist in order to check on the tooth, jaw and facial development. Often by recognizing and intercepting a developing problem early can facilitate or even prevent full orthodontic treatment later. We are offering this screening service free of charge!

Please note: Whilst your general dentist may have an interest in orthodontics and may have attended a number of short courses they do not have the extensive post graduate orthodontic qualifications and the experience to accurately assess growth and development of your child’s teeth and facial structures.


 

  • The consultation fee will be waived should you elect to proceed with the orthodontic records i.e. X-rays, models and photographs. Please note that the fees paid for these includes all the detailed treatment planning and the subsequent half hour appointment to discuss this.
  • We will continue to offer family discounts on treatment fees for siblings of previously treated patients and also for those having treatment at the same time. 

 

  • We are also excited to offer mainly to adults a digital computer aided design clear “Essix” aligner system for less complicated tooth alignment problems. These are a series of clear aligners, which are fitted in sequence in 2-3 weekly intervals to move teeth incrementally (0.5mm) towards their final alignment. This can take 4-6 months to complete depending on the severity of the tooth malalignment.
