Your Trusted Perth Orthodontist
Smileworx Orthodontics offers more than just a beautiful, happy smile at the end of your orthodontic treatment. Our welcoming team work to make happy smiles throughout every part of your journey. From your first consultation to the final day of treatment and beyond, we pride ourselves on our meticulous attention to detail, on the warmth and practicality of our practice and on taking the time to understand the needs of parents and their children. That is the Smileworx difference.
Our team has decades of experience, so you and your child are in safe hands.
Orthodontic treatment can be a bit like a rollercoaster ride. Sometimes you can be nervous, sometimes excited, sometimes stressed and perhaps even happy when the end is in sight. But one thing’s for certain; you’ll finish both with a smile on your face.
To make each of our orthodontic treatments as comfortable as possible, our team uses their knowledge and understanding to provide you and your family with all the information you need. We always encourage you to ask questions, as it is important that you can make a decision that you feel comfortable with. Our orthodontists see each patient as not just a job, but as a person that they genuinely care about and want to give the gift of a happy, healthy smile.
We understand that your life can get busy and that it can be difficult to find the time to visit the orthodontist. Our team work hard to not only help to find an appointment that suits your lifestyle, but also to ensure that you aren’t kept waiting (although, with the games in our waiting room, your kids probably won’t mind!). It is important to us that our orthodontists have enough time dedicated to each patient. We take this into consideration when organising our appointments!
Smileworx Orthodontics is something to smile about.
Since opening our doors, Smileworx Orthodontics has put smiles on the faces of hundreds of adults and children alike, both when they enter the clinic for the first time and when they leave for the last time (and every time in-between!). Not only are our team passionate about what they do, they are also dedicated to excellence in their results and in creating a fun and caring practice for your family.
We love helping our patients to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Some of the ways we do that include:
- Early Interceptive Treatment
- Growth Modification
- Metal, Ceramic, and Clear Braces for all ages
- Oral surgical options
- Invisalign and Simpli5 Clear Aligners
If you are looking for an orthodontic practise in Perth that provides outstanding service and takes genuine care in you and your family, Smileworx can help. With practices located centrally in Carine and Geraldton, a stunning new smile is closer than you might think!
We know that you only want the very best for your child – especially in terms of their health.
Children’s orthodontics is the first step in creating a healthy, straight smile and begins with an orthodontic assessment at around the age of seven. At this age, your child’s mouth still has a mixture of baby and adult teeth and it is easier for orthodontists to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems.
Your child’s orthodontic treatment may not start straight away, but planning their future care is equally as important. The sooner that problems are detected and evaluated, the sooner we can work with you to develop a plan that suits both you and your child’s needs.
Our dedicated team take children’s orthodontics seriously. Not just because it has the potential to reduce the complexity and cost of treatments later in life, but also because it is a great way begin to facilitate a comfortable and relaxed relationship with orthodontics for your child.
Our practice has a dedicated ‘kid’s corner,’ with video games and toys, as well as warm and welcoming staff, so that your child will enjoy visiting the orthodontist and even look forward to it!
Some of the benefits of early intervention in orthodontics include:
- Correcting and guiding the growth of your child’s jaw
- Assisting in the overall development of your child’s permanent adult teeth
- Regulating the width of the upper and lower arches
- Creating more space for crowded teeth
- Avoiding the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
- Fixing thumb-sucking
- Helping to improve minor speech problems
The best way to know if your child will need early orthodontic intervention is to have an orthodontist take a look. At Smileworx, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and care, even if it turns out that your child does not need orthodontic treatment!
Traditional braces have become synonymous with the teenage years and for good reason! At this age, all of the necessary teeth have come through, the jaw is fully formed and it is easier to shape the teeth and bite more quickly and comfortably.
Rest assured that the days of nicknames like ‘train-tracks’ or ‘metal-mouth’ are long gone. Today, orthodontic appliances are smaller, sleeker and more comfortable. Our orthodontists will recommend an option that suits not only your child’s mouth, but also their personal preferences in terms of how the appliance will look. Whether that means making the brackets the colour of their favourite sporting team, or offering a solution that is almost invisible, having braces doesn’t have to be something that they dread.
Not all teenagers will need orthodontic treatment, but it is recommended that they visit an orthodontist early to check how their jaw is developing and to ensure that it is growing correctly. This is also a fantastic opportunity for you to have any queries or concerns you have answered and to educate your child about their treatment, so they are comfortable and ready to move forward.
As well as more traditional braces options, Smileworx Orthodontics offers a number of discreet options for teens and adults who aren’t comfortable with the idea of visible metal wires and brackets, including:
- Clear ceramic braces
- Self-ligating braces
We are dedicated to understanding how best to tailor your orthodontic experience and offer a number of state-of-the-art-options to give you and your child the choice.
Perhaps you have seen your children flourish with their Smileworx orthodontic treatment, or maybe you’ve just considered orthodontic treatment for a long time and have finally decided to take action. Whatever your reason and whatever your age, the team at Smileworx believe that your experience should be something special.
Since many of the team have had braces themselves, we understand the process from consult though to the big reveal and are committed to providing unrivalled service throughout. We pride ourselves on working more as a big family unit, rather than just a team, and include all of our patients in that too! Whether that means giving you practical advice based on your circumstances, or finding an appointment that fits in with your busy schedule, the team at Smileworx offers their full support.
Thankfully, having braces as an adult doesn’t have to be the ordeal that you might think, thanks to a number of discreet options that are comfortable and give fantastic results. Some of these include:
- Clear braces
- Ceramic braces
- Self-ligating braces
- Lingual (behind the tooth) braces
- Invisible braces
Smileworx Orthodontics understands that adults, teenagers and children will all have different needs and require different levels of attention and care. We work with you to ensure that you receive a dedicated treatment and the utmost levels of service.
Although it may feel like your orthodontic appointments can be difficult to squeeze in to your busy schedule, we have conveniently located our practices centrally – just where you need us.
Our central Perth practices are both handy to public transport and we ensure our Duncraig and Carine offices are suitable for people with reduced mobility. Both practices have ample parking available.
The Geraldton practice is merely steps from the beautiful Tarcoola Beach and is located on the bustling Brand Highway.
Our Carine practice is just off the Mitchell Freeway and just blocks from the Warwick train station.
