Welcome to Fraser Dental, one of Auckland’s most trusted orthodontics providers.

We believe that beginning orthodontic correction early can have significant benefits for children. That’s why we recommend an early assessment of children’s teeth straightening options.

Early Assessment & Treatment

At Fraser Dental, we assess breathing patterns in children as young as 5 years old. This can have a lasting effect on the shape of a child’s jaw and teeth. Our experienced orthodontic experts can perform the first orthodontic assessment at 7 or 8 years old to improve the chances of avoiding major orthodontic procedures in the future.

Range of Orthodontic Options

We offer a full range of orthodontic options, embracing the latest technology and trends, including metal, clear, coloured, and invisible braces. Our goal is to create amazing smiles for people of all ages.

OrthoPlan – Affordable Orthodontic Payment Plan

We understand the cost of braces for kids can be difficult to manage. That’s why we offer OrthoPlan, an orthodontic payment plan that allows you to spread the cost of your child’s orthodontics over the course of their treatment.

Removable Orthodontic Appliances

Removable orthodontic appliances can be used very effectively in orthodontics for kids. We can prescribe appliances that encourage the jaw to grow in the right way. This can result in a lesser expense than full orthodontics at a later age.

Non-Extraction Orthodontics

Many traditional approaches to orthodontics recommend the removal of teeth to gain space in the mouth. However, we now know this to be an outdated approach. Non-extraction orthodontics, or Full Face Orthodontics, is the new standard, with extractions being required only in a very small number of cases. If your child has been recommended for tooth extractions, we advise caution before such a permanent treatment plan is undertaken.

Myofunctional Orthodontics

Myofunctional treatment involves several mouth, facial muscle, and tongue exercises designed to correct a deviated swallow. This treatment is customised based on age and can correct misaligned teeth, thumb-sucking, teeth-grinding, speech problems, mouth breathing, sleep apnea, and stomach aches.

Functional Orthodontics

Auckland childrens orthodontics

Functional orthodontics is the name given to the branch of orthodontics that uses appliances and braces to guide the growth of teeth and jaws. This is a big part of our orthodontics for kids treatment philosophy at Fraser Dental. The treatment involves straightening teeth and repositioning the upper and lower jaws to create a healthier profile, correcting issues such as migraines, neck and shoulder pain, dizziness,  sleep apnoea, hearing problems, and facial profiles.

At Fraser Dental, we approach children’s teeth straightening differently, expanding the jaw to make more room and creating a more balanced profile. Our goal is to provide the best orthodontic treatment for kids, promoting healthy smiles and confident attitudes.
