Orthodontic Treatment

We offer orthodontic care for the whole family that focuses on fixing bite problems and straightening teeth. It involves correction of badly aligned teeth into a favourable position with the help of brackets and straightening wires. Without treatment, orthodontic problems can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, speech or chewing impairment, digestive disorders, and unnecessary tooth loss. Options like traditional metal braces, invisible braces or braces with interesting shapes and colours allow us to find the right treatment to fit your specific condition.

How do I know if I need orthodontic treatment?
Only your Orthodontist can determine if you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical examination, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, an orthodontist can decide whether orthodontic is recommended, and develop a treatment plan that's right for you.

How does orthodontic treatment work?
Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective. Braces, fixed/ removable space maintainers, aligners and palate expanders are some of the appliances used.

Invisalign treatment
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces are used. Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic and contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.

There are many advantages of Invisalign treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth and gums. The treatment duration is shorter compared to conventional orthodontic treatment.

Habit breaking appliances
Certain habits like bruxism (involuntary grinding of teeth), snoring, thumb sucking or tempro-mandibular joint disorders can have detrimental effects on the general well-being of a person. Habit breaking appliances like nightguard or biteguard along with counselling can help a patient lead a normal healthy life.
