Orthodontics for Children
In some situations, we prefer to treat children as early as the orthodontic problem is detected.
Early orthodontic treatments not only help your child to have a better smile with confidence but also it improves the quality of life.
For example, children who suffer from sleep apnea could be treated with special orthodontic appliances. Those who grind their teeth, may need a night guard to protect the teeth from wearing.
Habits such as finger sucking and teeth malalignments such as cross bites, severely protruded teeth and open bites should be treated as early as possible to prevent major complications in the future. For instance, sleep apnea, mouth breathing, Jaw joint (TMJ) issues and teeth fracture/wear.
Teeth are moving faster in growing children who have the best ability to adapt the changes taken place while being treated with orthodontic appliances.
Orthodontics for Adults
There is no age limit to get your smile improved with orthodontic treatments. With modern orthodontics, we can customize your orthodontic treatment plan to that which best fits your life style and budget.
These appliances (plates) are commonly used for young children to correct cross bites, expanding jaws to make room for adult teeth and maintaining spaces for adult teeth if baby teeth have fallen out at very early ages.
Braces / Fixed Orthodontics
Most of the children and adults need braces to treat their malaligned teeth and jaws. We are able to provide you with either metal or ceramic braces depending on your requirements.
Invisalign / Clear Aligners
If you are keen to have a minimal visibility of the orthodontic appliance while being treated, invisalign is the best choice for you. You will be introduced a series of custom made clear plastic plates to wear during the treatment. They have minimal appearance and are very hygienic as they can be removed while brushing and eating.
As teeth have a memory, they tend to go back to their original position. You will be introduced to either fixed or removable retainers to make sure your teeth are held in their newly moved position for recommended period of time.
