FAQs & Other Info

Do I still need to see my family dentist?
Yes! A regular check up with your family dentist is very important. You should see your general dentist every six months for a check up and clean.

Can I still play contact sports?
Braces will not stop you participating in any sporting activity. If you play a contact sport like football or basketball, we recommend you wear a special mouthguard, which we will fit for you at no charge.

Can I still play a musical instrument like the flute or clarinet?
After a short period of adjustment, there shouldn't be a problem.

Are there foods I can’t eat if I have braces?
You must avoid anything hard, sticky or chewy and foods high in sugar or acid. Click here for more detailed information!

Dental Health Funds
Certain Health Fund schemes offer a limited rebate on fees paid for orthodontic treatment. Conditions apply. The rebate depends on your type of health cover and on how long you have been in the Health Fund.

You should discuss the rebate with your Health Fund before making a start with orthodontic treatment. At your initial consultation we will provide you with all the information you need.
