How We Can Help
Upon your first visit to Oasis Orthodontics, Dr Hopkins will check your general dental health and carry out a comprehensive orthodontic assessment.
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 dentist, other dental specialists and the school dental service. As an alternative, we do accept self-referrals.
All treatment lengths will vary depending on the type of treatment that is required, and the complexity of an individual’s orthodontic needs.
After your initial consultation, Dr Hopkins will provide you with a range of options. Some of the appliances that may be recommended are listed below. This is not an exclusive list, so if you have a specific appliance in mind please do not hesitate to contact us.
Fixed Appliances (Braces)
Work very well in all situations. We offer the traditional type of fixed appliance that are placed on the outside of your teeth. These can either be in metal or ceramic braces (our tooth coloured option)
When someone does not want the fixed appliances on the outside or inside, then an alternative option is a clear plastic aligner called Invisalign. They straighten teeth very well and are a convenient alternative to fixed braces.
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 contact our orthodontist in Perth to have an experienced orthodontic assessment.
Age is no barrier to treatment. If you have spent a long time wanting to straighten your teeth, then now is the perfect time to fix your smile.
Adults tend to lean towards dental appliances which are less visible. We offer a number of choices tailored to your desired outcome.

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.
