Owner and lead orthodontist, Dr Herriott, has been running the practice for over 20 years, giving him an unrivalled knowledge in orthodontics. Dr Herriott is particularly interested and educated in adult orthodontic treatment, reiterating the fact that braces and orthodontics are in no way only for children, with less invasive methods of teeth straightening constantly evolving (e.g. Invisalign).
The Tweed Heads Orthodontic clinic also recognises the importance of orthodontics for both health and aesthetics. Crooked and crowded teeth are difficult to maintain and clean, leading to such problems as tooth decay and gum disease. A bad bite can cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces and cause difficulty in chewing and speaking as well as affecting the entire facial construction.
Dr Herriott, Dr Manek and Dr Boardman all collaborate to formulate individual treatment plans for each patient by carrying out an extensive initial examination and recommending the best possible treatment for minimal discomfort and optimal results. So if you’re in the Tweed Heads or general Gold Coast areas, and are in need of orthodontic treatment, book an appointment with Coastal Orthodontics.
