Orthodontic treatment at any age
(even 74 years young!)

We’re often asked whether you’re ever too old to have orthodontic treatment. In almost all cases, the answer is no. In fact, Dr. Ahmed’s most mature patient to date was 74 years young, while his youngest was just four. While cases like these are special circumstances, don’t feel your age rules orthodontics out as an option. We’ve been happy to help parents and grandparents wanting treatment once they’ve seen the great results achieved for their teens or grandkids. Enjoying straighter teeth and a confident beautiful smile isn’t just for teenagers!

Being a specialist orthodontist means Dr. Kamal Ahmed is trained in providing comprehensive orthodontic treatments to suit YOU.

Dr. Kamal Ahmed has trained under world-leading orthodontists at Sydney University, as well as having achieved prestigious fellowships’ and memberships by examination from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACDS) and the Edinburgh College of Surgeons (RCSEd), as well as attending numerous other courses and international congresses.

He and the other specialists at South Coast Smiles provide continuing education lectures to other dental professionals in the Illawarra region, on their area of expertise.

Maintaining your beautiful new smile

As we continue to age, our body and face change, and so do our teeth. Just as time can give us a few wrinkles and grey hairs as we age, teeth also change with age. Retainers are a simple way of maintaining your new smile throughout the years ahead. Dr. Kamal Ahmed uses a range of retainers, from fixed to removable retainers. We also make customised retainers if required.

As we offer a range of treatments, it’s best if you come in and discuss your personal requirements.

Not everyone needs a full case of braces or Invisalign. Some people will choose to treat just their upper teeth with braces, or have only minor corrections requiring a short braces treatment rather than a full one. However as a general guide:

Orthodontics can also help to restore a neglected smile
Wwda Can Help

In addition to being a stand-alone treatment, orthodontics can be part of a bigger treatment plan to replace missing teeth with implants, or repair teeth with crowns, veneers, or other dental work. Dr. Kamal Ahmed and the South Coast Smiles Team are experts at providing exactly the right treatment for your needs. At South Coast Smiles, we have the expertise to plan and treat even the most complex cases under one roof.

Some neglected smiles can really benefit from some orthodontic treatment as part of their overall dental repairs plan. Dr. Kamal Ahmed regularly treats complex cases in conjunction with referring dentists, and other dental specialists to help give outcomes that couldn’t be achieved otherwise.

Any complex case needs good planning and teamwork between your dentist and specialist to make sure you end up with the best result possible. You can be sure you are in good hands as it is something we do regularly and well. It’s probably a little strange, but as dental specialists we love it.

* Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
