Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that includes all the procedures used to restore the alignment of your teeth and bite problems. It aims to give you a perfect smile. You can visit our clinic for various orthodontic procedures and restore your smile. Here are the popular treatment options that we may use:
Traditional braces are made using metal and are a popular form of orthodontic treatment worldwide. People of all ages can opt for braces to restore their smiles. They include a series of brackets attached to your teeth, further linked by the wires. This arrangement works by gradually moving your teeth into a suitable position.
You may have to visit us regularly to loosen or tighten the wires as your teeth move during the treatment course. You can also opt for tooth-colored brackets to give your smile a more natural appearance.
They are similar to traditional braces and work by attaching your teeth and bringing them to proper alignment. When you visit us for the procedure of lingual braces, we will attach the brackets to the rear surfaces of your teeth so that they appear to be hidden. After the application of lingual braces, you wouldn't feel conscious about your smile.
Invisalign has become an effective method to restore your teeth and correct your smile. This procedure doesn't use metal brackets but a clear plastic aligner tray on your teeth. You can visit us every two weeks to change the tray and adjust it according to the altering shape of your teeth. The advantage of Invisalign is that you can remove it while eating your food or drinking. They are easy to maintain.
A dental retainer is a removable appliance that we may recommend if you have recently had any realignment treatment. Retainers help to maintain the new shape of your teeth in the long run. Alongside this, they also help you correct your bite and prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position. Our dentist will recommend a suitable type of retainer for you after checking the shape and size of your mouth.
Also known as orthodontic elastics, they are rubber-band-like devices that our dentist may recommend in conjunction with your braces. They help you restore the position of your teeth and correct jaw problems. Elastics work by pulling your jaw forward and backward to improve your bite. Besides, they also speed up teeth alignment.
