Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that treats malocclusion, or the condition wherein the teeth are not positioned correctly resulting in an improper bite. Orthodontic treatment in Sydney usually has the following objectives:

- long-term health boosting of the gums and teeth
- long-term prevention of excessive wear or trauma of the teeth
- improper bite treatment
There are also braces in Sydney which are made up of brackets, wires and bands. Bands are tightly placed around the teeth which hold the appliance in place, brackets are then placed in front of each tooth linked together by arch-shaped wires that pass through the brackets and are fixed to the bands. Tension is applied to the teeth each time the wire is tightened, which is done continuously until teeth move into the proper position.
But how much do teeth braces cost in Sydney? Metal braces / Conventional – $2,000 to $9,000, Ceramic braces (18 month treatment) – $5,000 to $8,500, Lingual braces (custom made to fit perfectly along the inside of your teeth) – $9,000 (18 month plan) and Invisible braces / Invisalign – $6,000 to $9,000, minor corrections starts at $4500.
