Orthodontic Treatment

What is the significance of Orthodontics?

Orthodontics can enhance a person's self-image as the lips, jaws and teeth become proportionately aligned as smile is just a part of the wide range of benefits. Avoid health issues is another benefit as ignorance can lead to gum disease, chewing and digestion problems, bone damage and caries. A "bad bite" can cause chipped teeth, speech impairments, tooth loss and other dental trauma.

At what age should an adolescent first visit an Orthodontist?

We suggest getting checked up by an Orthodontist before the age of 7. Some problems can be easily corrected if detected at an early age when the jaw growth hasn't slowed down yet as it also helps avoid surgery and complex procedures in future.

Till what age can a person get braces?

Any person having healthy teeth can get his teeth realigned. Patient’s can be treated from as early as 7yrs and as late as 60yrs or older!

Difference between a normal Dentist and an Orthodontist

Orthodontists are dentists with specialization in rectifying irregularities of the face and teeth. An orthodontist can realign teeth and then help maintain them, improve 'bite' and improve functioning of the jaw. As per the guidelines laid down by the American Dental Association, a person can be called an Orthodontist only if he's completed the rigorous two year post-graduate training in orthodontics from an accredited University.

What about expenses?

Depending on the complexity of the issue, the expense will vary. Surprisingly Orthodontic treatment is cheaper than one thinks as many problems need limited treatment. Our orthodontist will be glad to talk about fees. We offer various payment plans depending on the financial condition of the patient.
