Our Parent Information Evenings are relaxed, informal events where you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about braces. We want to make sure you have all the facts if you are at all concerned about your child’s teeth, gums, or jaw.
Braces (Orthodontics) are not just for crooked or misaligned teeth. They can also correct problems with the palate and jaw alignment. You may not even realise your child needs braces as their teeth may appear straight – and yet, have you noticed things like a lopsided smile, heavy mouth breathing, or persistent sinus issues? Any of these may be signs that your child needs braces.
We also offer Invisalign for those who have adverse feelings toward braces.
At our Parent Info Evenings, you will learn what the symptoms or signs that your child needs braces are. We tell you what should you be looking for and talk through the possible solutions to these issues.
Caught early, most teeth, gums, and jaw problems can be corrected, and often without extracting any teeth. We discuss preventative measures you can take with younger children in the family, hopefully avoiding the need for braces when they are older.
We also discuss how do braces work. What the process is. How they fix each issue. How long it may take to fix the problem. Plus we look at the most common orthodontic conditions we see here at the practice and help you identify whether or not your child has any signs of them.
And yes – we also will answer all your questions about cost! As well as cost questions, we also tell you all about the payment plans we offer to ensure your child gets the best treatment they need.
Dr Milan Raniga has been running these seminars for over 5 years and has nearly 20 years’ experience in orthodontics. He has worked in a specialist orthodontic practice alongside leading ortho specialist, Dr Derek Mahoney and has completed a mini-residency in Orthodontics with EODO (Excellence in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics).
He thoroughly enjoys meeting new people and is passionate about helping them determine the best course of action for their child and their child’s teeth. He specialises in non-extraction orthodontics, a methodology that tries to avoid unnecessary extraction as often the issues can be solved without pulling any teeth!
Every family attending also receives a no-obligation complimentary consultation and x-ray valued at $193. This consultation and x-ray will determine if your child will need treatment and what kind of treatment they will need. Knowing takes a great weight off parents and caregivers shoulders and we can then help you plan ahead for any treatment deemed necessary.
