Orthodontics

What is Orthodontics?

When describing orthodontics, most people just refer to braces. While the majority of orthodontic cases involve braces, there are alternatives that may be used for younger children. Arch expanders and training appliances for younger children can minimize or eliminate the need for braces when problems are treated early enough.


What are the Benefits of Orthodontics?

  • Reduce the risk of injury - prominent teeth are more prone to trauma

  • Reduce the risk of decay - crooked teeth are harder to clean

  • Reduce the risk of developing TMJ problems

  • Eliminate the excessive wear on your teeth that can be caused by a poorly aligned bite

  • Correcting abnormal tooth alignment can help prevent certain speech problems

  • Straight teeth provide a healthier, more attractive smile

  • A beautiful smile increases confidence and self-esteem

 

Orthodontic Treatments

Misplaced teeth or an “improper bite” can not only detract from people’s smiles; but may also lead to tooth decay, gum disease and eventual early tooth loss. For these, among other reasons everyone should have an orthodontic check-up at least once, the ideal age for which would be 7 years, though age is not a bar for treatment with braces.

Types of Braces

With the latest cutting-edge Orthodontic technology today; young patients, teenagers, as well as adults can feel good about how they look with braces.

Gold Braces / Colored Braces - For those that actually want to be noticed, braces now come in a variety of fun options such as Gold Braces if you want to make a style statement; or with accessories in every imaginable color, to suit your mood.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Braces – Youngsters actually look forward to orthodontic treatment if their braces come in some really cool shapes and designs – star, soccer ball, heart, flower etc.

 

 

Lingual Orthodontics

Lingual Orthodontics or ‘Invisible Braces’ is an efficient, legitimate treatment modality. There are individuals who need and desire orthodontic treatment but are not willing to wear conventional braces. Many of these patients have been hiding their smiles and neglecting their oral health for years. Invisible braces are meant for all those who do not want to compromise on looks, but understand the importance of a beautiful smile. These braces can be worn by people of any age

And have become immensely popular among bollywood personalities, television actors, models, corporates, and air-hostesses alike
