If appropriate, x-rays and specific photographs of your teeth may be collected. All available treatment options will be discussed with you.
We generally accept referrals from your family dentists, other dental specialists and the school dental service. As an alternative, we do accept self-referrals.
All treatment length will vary depending on the type of treatment that is required, and the complexity of an individual’s orthodontic needs.
Some of the more common problems encountered in children are abnormal bites, crowding, impacted teeth, and protrusion of teeth.
If you are concerned with your child’s smile, or your dentist has noticed a problem, it is important that you have an experienced orthodontic assessment.
When appropriate, Dr. Hopkins likes to use customised appliances such as Insignia, ‘Incognito’ lingual braces, and ‘Invisalign’ for accurate and predictable results.
Customised fixed braces such as ‘Insignia’ and ‘Incognito’ ensure that a patient's treatment is planned perfectly from the start, and will deliver an amazing final result.
Dr. Hopkins is empathetic towards those patients who are nervous about orthodontic treatment. To make sure your visit is more pleasant, we use a 3D intra-oral scanner to capture images of patent’s teeth. Besides being noninvasive, this also avoids common problems with conventional impressions.
