What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontists are dental specialists that specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental and facial irregularities to help correctly align teeth, bites and jaws, including straightening teeth.

When it comes to orthodontic care, we do not recommend that patients see anyone who is not a specialist orthodontist.

Adult Orthodontics:

There are a number of reasons why an adult might have crooked teeth or a bad bite and choose to have orthodontic treatment. Genetics is one of the main causes of common orthodontic problems such as underbites and overbites. Prolonged habits during childhood, such as biting your lips or sucking your thumb can cause the front teeth to become misaligned.

It’s also natural for our teeth to shift position as we age, lose or wear down our teeth, or if gum problems develop. Sometimes that means that adults who have had orthodontic treatment as a child and haven’t worn their retainers as instructed require further orthodontic treatment as an adult.

What orthodontic treatments are suitable for adults at our dental center?

For some adults, the thought of having traditional metal braces is unappealing. Some people are concerned that wearing braces might have a negative impact on their lives, for example by making them more self-conscious at work or impacting on their social lives.

Thanks to modern technology however, orthodontic treatment is a viable option for almost any adult, with a much wider range of discreet options. The fact that one in five orthodontic patients is adult, goes to show that there are plenty of suitable treatment options which can fit comfortably with your lifestyle.

Our experienced specialist orthodontist can determine the most effective treatment available for your individual case.

Aligners

Clear aligners are one of the most popular options for adults looking to undergo orthodontic treatment.

They are transparent pieces of custom-moulded plastic that sit over the teeth and gradually shift them. Often hailed as ‘invisible braces’ because of their subtlety, they are also a removable appliance. While you usually need to wear clear aligners for 20-22 hours a day, you’re able to take them out to eat, drink and clean the aligners.

Clear aligners can be an effective, simple and comfortable form of treatment. However, they’re only suitable for people who are disciplined enough to follow instructions on how to wear and care for their clear aligners.

Just like other forms of treatment, clear aligners should be fitted by a qualified orthodontist, who is fully trained to provide you with the best result.

Metal Braces

Traditional braces are more effective at treating extreme overcrowding. They give the orthodontist the control he needs to move the teeth in small increments at a time.

While less noticeable orthodontics like aligners may seem like a better choice for those who are conscious of their appearance, today’s braces are more visually appealing than in past years, with a range of color options for both the brackets and the elastics. Wearing these types of braces also means that you don’t have to worry about ever misplacing your aligners.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable.

They are less noticeable than metal braces; move teeth much faster than clear aligners

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of teeth.

Lingual braces are one of the “invisible” treatment methods that our orthodontist may have to offer. For the most part, they look like conventional dental braces that have been mounted on the backside (lingual, tongue side) of your teeth. This hides them from view, making them unnoticeable to others.

Self Ligation Braces (Metal and Ceramic)

This is the most preferred braces by our orthodontist. The technological advancement in metal braces in recent decades has been very significant and we are able to offer low-profile metal braces at our center. Both conventional and self-ligating braces which are available in metal and ceramic can be used to move teeth, and both types of metal braces can produce the desired outcome. When we are asked why we use the types of braces we use, the answer is that it comes down to our orthodontist’s experience and preference, patient experience and most importantly your oral hygiene.

Made In Japan

The In-Ovation self-ligating brackets by Dentsply (Made in Japan) that we utilize are low profile so patients find them fairly comfortable to wear after the necessary initial period of discomfort. Negating the use of modules also means that there is less material for plaque debris to potentially collect around. This in turn allows for better cleaning of the teeth and braces and better oral hygiene in general.

The care instructions that are provided by our staff after braces are fitted also extend to ensuring that the modules are held in place. Occasionally, a module can come off the bracket wings and, while easily solved, this may be problematic depending on the individual circumstances. With the self-ligating system, the gate holds shut until it is opened with a special manufacturer’s instrument. There is one less thing for the patient to be concerned about!

Our orthodontist’s clinical experience also means that they are able to use these braces optimally to maximize your benefit and help you to achieve your healthy smile.

Damon Q

The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.

Damon System available in Metal and Ceramic is the most preferred orthodontic appliance by our patients as it delivers profound esthetics and comfort to our patients

Orthodontics for children

When should my child see an orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association recommend all kids be evaluated for orthodontics by age 7. By this age, the orthodontist can detect subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth. Most kids begin active treatment between ages 9 and 14.

Our orthodontist recommends you correct dental problems while your child is still growing. Once they stop growing, treatment may take longer and require more extensive work.

When should my child see an orthodontist?

Along with the orthodontic treatment sometimes our orthodontist uses fixed functional appliance when all the permanent teeth are erupted or about to be erupted to correct jaw discrepancies like:
