Our Services - Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a dental specialty that treats dental and facial irregularities. Most of the orthodontic practices are limited to general orthodontics and dento-facial orthopedics. An orthodontist is responsible for beautifying the facial elements by harmonizing the teeth and the jaws.

So, what does an orthodontist do?

Several reasons can lead to the misalignment of teeth which may further give rise to issues like speech defects, difficulty chewing and inability to maintain adequate oral hygiene. Below are some of the most common issues an orthodontist is successfully capable of treating:

  • Overcrowding - This is one of the most common problems an Orthodontist usually deals with. Lack of jawbone interrupts the growth of adult teeth. This new teeth are usually not in alignment with the existing set of teeth. The orthodontist works towards realigning the teeth using several unobtrusive devices.
  • Anteroposterior deviations - In some instances, the upper set of teeth is positioned much further than the lower. This problem can cause a huge amount of discomfort while articulating and chewing. It can be corrected by aopproach an orthodontist.
  • Aesthetic Issue - Malocclusions or a bad bite may result in the disfiguration of the face to some extent. In such a case, the orthodontist carries out a surgery to restructure the jaw, teeth and the lips with an intention to help you get back that lost smile.

Here are a few of the common orthodontic treatment options, which experts at our clinic offer:

Smart clip braces- Also known as self-ligating braces, since these braces are literally without any ligatures, the smart clip braces come in very handy when a patient has to take care of dental hygiene. Functioning with these braces is remarkably easy as the patient’s tooth movement is well facilitated and the number or orthodontist visits are also greatly reduced.

Metal braces- These kinds of braces are compiled of metal brackets and wire themselves; it is probably what most people imagine when braces are suggested. However, with advances in technology, the metal braces too have much smaller brackets and are possibly lesser noticeable nowadays. They are the least expensive of all braces and often serve the patients needs very well.

Ceramic braces- Similar to metal braces in size and formation, the ceramic ones are often the patient’s choice when they feel the need to have braces more camouflaging with their teeth. Ceramic braces are tooth-colored i.e. have clear brackets on them, which blend in with the teeth, once they are placed.

Invisalign - These are the aligners, which are mouth guard like, and our custom made, to suit the individual’s needs. Invasalign works with only particular treatment and dental defects but is surely one of the most eccentric and classy looking kinds.

Invisible lingual braces (Incognito & Harmony) - They are the same as traditional metal braces but with the added advantage of being fixed on the inside of the teeth. Hence they are commonly referred to as invisible braces.

Damon System: This method is one of the more passive and self-ligating methods in orthodontics, which is used to correct malocclusions of the teeth. To be able to hold the braces and wires in the place, Damon system uses the concept of small sliding doors in addition to the ‘stop’ option available on the wire, which ensures that they don’t dislocate.
