Orthodontics is an old speciality that has undergone dramatic changes during the last 50 years, from being a discipline aimed at treating malocclusions in children to being a discipline aimed at treating patients irrespective of age.

Why Straighten Teeth

An increasing number of adults are seeking orthodontic correction of untreated malocclusions, irregularity of teeth, and late-developed crowding of teeth, as well as relapses of previous orthodontic treatment. The main reason expressed is a desire for aesthetic improvement of dentofacial anomalies.

Consultations

Are sought out to align teeth and improve the position of the teeth , for realignment of teeth caused by pathological tooth migration, or in surgical treatment of severe malocclusions. This indicates that orthodontic treatment in those individuals is aimed at occlusal stability and chewing comfort.

Total procedure

The patient will be instructed to follow an oral hygiene programme to avoid possible dental and gingival damage during the orthodontic treatment, and a strongly motivated adult patient will cooperate excellently.

Orthodontist BRACES

Different Types of Braces available

crystal-braces
These braces provide our patients with a discreet alternative to conventional Stainless Steel Brackets. The ceramic brackets which are manufactured from patented sapphire material are crystal clear and look great throughout orthodontic treatment.

lingual-braces
For those adult patients who want to create a beautiful smile without the awkwardness of any attachments on the front of their teeth, we are proud to offer state-of-the-art lingual brackets. Lingual braces are completely invisible when you smile and do not cause any significant change in the lip and facial contours.
Low-Friction-Braces
This new approach to orthodontics utilizes passive self-ligating brackets with a unique sliding mechanism and high-technology wires that minimize friction and binding of conventional braces. This reduces discomfort throughout the treatment and shortens treatment time.

Orthodontist | Helpline (FAQ'S)

When teeth are rotated, overlapped, blocked out or do not fit together properly, this is referred to as a “malocclusion”.

This can be present at any age, although frequently is noticed when children lose their primary teeth and the permanent teeth are erupting


The formation of a malocclusion is multifactorial. Jaws that are too small will not allow all the permanent teeth to be accommodated and will manifest with various irregularities.

Although the size of the jaws and the teeth is genetically predetermined, growth of the jaws and position of the teeth can be modified orthodontically.

Habits, such as finger and thumb sucking or dummy sucking, alter pressures on the dentoskeletal structures, and may also lead to the formation of malocclusions.

Furthermore, premature loss of teeth, both primary and permanent, will allow adjacent teeth to shift and encourage irregularities.

Orthodontics is a specialized area of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, interception and treatment of dental and facial irregularities (malocclusions).

Orthodontics should be carried out by an orthodontist – a dentist who has specialized in this field.

When teeth are out of position, it is harder to keep them clean and maintain the gums healthy, predisposing the individual to the development of decay and gum disease, possibly leading to eventual tooth loss.

Likewise, teeth that do not fit well together put undue stress on the chewing muscles and may lead to the establishment of grinding habits (tooth wear), jaw and muscular pain and joint problems (Temporomandibular Disorders/TMD’s).

Braces are metal or ceramic brackets that attach to the teeth connected together by wires that exert pressure to effect tooth movement. Auxiliary appliances (fixed/removable) are sometimes used to aid with achieving desired tooth movement.
When first attached/adjusted, braces can cause temporary discomfort. Within a few days, the supporting structures of the teeth adapt to the increased pressure and the discomfort subsides. We provide all our new patients with a topical analgesic and orthodontic wax to soothe minor mouth irritations that may occur during this period of adaptation.
The length of time it takes to properly reposition the teeth depends on the individual’s age, the severity of the malocclusion, the treatment protocol and the way individual looks after their braces. On average, orthodontic treatment lasts approximately 18 to 24 months. Once the braces are removed, a period of retention is necessary to hold the teeth in their new positions until they become more secure in the bone and the gum tissue remodels.
There is no limitation on the age at which braces can be worn. Traditionally, the majority of orthodontic patients were children because they have the advantage of growth and therefore not only can their tooth positions be corrected, but in addition their growth can be modified. In adults, growth of the jaws in complete, however, braces can move teeth at any age and achieve a beautiful result that’s youthful and dynamic. In fact, today, with an increase in aesthetic awareness and with the quest for long-term dental health, an increasing number of adults are turning to orthodontic treatment. It is never too late to have the smile you have always wanted.
