Choosing an orthodontist can seem simple until you start searching and find there are lots of dental professionals in Sydney! How are you supposed to identify the best orthodontist for you and your family? With orthodontic treatments lasting 12 – 24 months, if not longer, it’s important to find a professional who is well qualified and suits your lifestyle. Balmain Dentist can do just that. Serving the areas of Balmain, Annandale, Drummoyne, Hunter’s Hill and Rozelle, Balmain Dentist understands the lifestyle of Inner West Sydney and can cater for your orthodontic needs.

Consider Experience and Expertise

When searching for an orthodontist, one of the most important aspects to consider is the experience and expertise of the professional. Have they been in the industry long? Do they hold specialised qualifications in their field? Look at the letters behind their name and ask about any memberships they have earned. These factors can help narrow down your options by identifying a qualified professional. If you already know you have certain needs, be sure to ask the clinic if the orthodontist has experience in that area. Don’t be shy when choosing the best care for your teeth.

Consider the Range of Treatment Options Available

Dentistry and orthodontics is not a one size fits all field. There are many treatment options available now for orthodontic work in Sydney. A good orthodontist will be familiar with a range of options for treatment and will be able to discuss the best option for you, based on your situation. Look for an orthodontist who has experience working with traditional metal braces as well as Invisalign. Have a look on the clinic website or call the clinic to get an idea of what that orthodontist offers.

Balmain Dentist has years of experience treating children, adults, and seniors, and is skilled in both traditional braces and Invisalign. You can read more about the differences and recommendations for the braces and Invisalign in our blog post here.

Consider Convenience & Lifestyle

It is important to select an orthodontist that fits well into your lifestyle. Finding an orthodontist close to your work, child’s school, or home can make trips to the dentist all that much easier, especially should emergency appointments be needed. You don’t need to add a lengthy commute to your appointment, so seek a dentist in your local area.
