Tooth being extracted

Non-extraction Orthodontics
in Dee Why

At Wavescape Orthodontics, we strive to help you achieve your oral health goals using our variety of orthodontic solutions. We believe in a conservative approach that avoids the removal of teeth prior to treatment whenever possible.

Every tooth is worth looking after and makes your smile uniquely yours. A detailed, comprehensive evaluation with Dr Riaan Foot (Orthodontist) will determine which treatment is most suitable for your case. Only if all other possible options are exhausted will we consider extracting a tooth before starting.


Why might extraction be necessary?

Teeth may be extracted because of overcrowding or to allow the room needed for teeth to straighten and have the ideal position.

What can you do instead of extraction?

There are many orthodontic treatments available at our practice. We may recommend treating your jaw, head, neck or tongue, using their ideal positioning to make the changes we need to see. Once achieved, your teeth can then be aligned using orthodontics such as braces.

Why would you want to avoid extraction?

Tooth extraction can cause issues further down the road, including discomfort. The removal of healthy teeth, even if they’re not in the ideal position, can impact your oral health and facial aesthetics in the long term. Your jaw and face can change shape as you develop and grow due to extraction.
