Our experienced dental team takes the time to explain and guide you through your braces journey. You will learn from us how to take care of your oral hygiene while wearing braces, which foods you should avoid, and how to best manage your new lifestyle.
Straightened teeth will not only improve your smile and self-confidence, but also contribute to better chewing function and oral hygiene.
On the other hand, a misaligned bite can lead to tensed muscles in the mouth and teeth wear due to difficulty in chewing. There is also a higher possibility of getting gum disease as it is often a challenge to maintain good oral hygiene.
Dentists reposition teeth with the help of a selection of corrective appliances, including braces, clear aligners, and retainers. Though they work best during childhood and adolescence, adults benefit from braces as well, and more adults are seeking treatment for their crooked teeth than ever before.
Also known as traditional braces, the brackets and wires are of a metal color, which come with colorful elastics used for applying steady pressure required to move your teeth.
These can create outstanding results in both children and adults. We usually recommend that you bring your child in for an orthodontics evaluation when they are around the age of 7 so that we can monitor their oral development.
Lingual braces look exactly like traditional metal ones, except they are placed at the back of your teeth. They can help a range of dental problems, so there’s a strong chance you would be a candidate.
As an advantage to clear aligners such as Invisalign, lingual braces remain on your teeth at all times. You won't have to worry about losing them, removing them to brush or eat, or getting a new one every couple weeks.
Not every orthodontist will offer lingual braces, as this procedure requires additional training and certification. If you are interested in this orthodontic treatment method, you're welcome contact our clinic.
Ceramic braces are tooth coloured and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. They are more commonly used on older teenagers and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns.
However, ceramic braces require more attention to oral hygiene as they are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Brands such as Damon and Forestadent have systems to enable fast movement of teeth which shortens treatment time and requires lesser adjustments.
Self-ligating braces are placed much like conventional braces, with the exception of ligature: No elastic or rubber bands or metal ties are used because they are not necessary. Instead, they have a special inbuilt mechanism that can be opened and closed to secure the archwire and move your teeth into desired positions.
Invisalign is a leader and pioneer in clear aligner treatment. It uses a series of transparent and removable aligners that are custom-made to straighten specifically your set of teeth.
These braces gradually straighten your teeth between 6-15 months, and are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible polymer, making them an attractive option over traditional metal/ceramic wiring braces.
The process is simple – you will receive a personalised set of aligners, all you have to do is wear a new set every 2-3 weeks, as well as come to the clinic for routine checkups every 4-6 weeks so we can ensure that you’re making progress.
Throughout the treatment, you will have the support of our friendly team of dentists and staff, who will also provide advice and tips on overcoming any challenges you may face.
Myobrace System is a no-braces approach to straightening your teeth and jaws. Treatment with myofunctional orthodontic techniques uses light, intermittent forces to align the teeth. This is done through the use of a series of removable dental appliances that are worn for just 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping.
Daily use of the Myobrace combined with regular activities (to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture) results in straighter teeth and improved function, leading to optimal facial development and a healthier smile.
The ideal age to have braces is around 12 or 13. Earlier orthodontic intervention as early as 7 years old may be needed if the young patient has problems such as crossbite, severe overbite or reverse bite.
Adults benefit from braces as well, and more adults are seeking treatment for their crooked teeth than ever before. So if you think you may require orthodontic work, don't be shy to contact our clinic for an evaluation!
The success of orthodontic treatment depends on the operator and the patient.
For removable appliances, it is important that the patient comply with the number of hours of wearing time. For metal brackets, it is important for the patient to clean his/her teeth well during treatment. This is because there is an increased chance of residual food trap and plaque formation on the metal surfaces. If not, tooth decay may result.
For most, orthodontic treatment is an elective procedure. There are alternative solutions to crooked teeth, such as using veneers and/or crowns to align the teeth. The risks and benefits of each alternative can be better comprehended through discussions with your dentist.
