Orthodontics / Braces

Orthodontics has greatly advanced over the last decade and now every type of patient can find a treatment suited to their condition. A complete alignment of your teeth set is now possible in the matter of just 12 months making it a very comfortable option for any age group including adults. Patients can suffer from a number of orthodontic problems, each of which can be effectively treated at Dr Preeti’s TOTAL SMILECARE, including :

  • Twisted teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Misalignment

Malocclusion or irregular teeth needs attention not only because of cosmetic purpose but also because malocclusion causes many other problems like .

  • Increase risk of decay due to inability to brush or floss the teeth well
  • Tooth wear or grinding of teeth
  • Increased risk of accidental trauma
  • Altered speech
  • Poor aesthetic

“Braces “or “wires” are the most common terminologies used in reference to orthodontic treatment . More popular amongst kids, orthodontic treatment is an excellent option for all age group where teeth straightening or alignment is concerned in its most natural way!!

In today’s world where looks or esthetics are prime concern, an early detection of malocclusion and its treatment can make a child much more confident to evolve as an individual who is ready to face the peer pressure of the society.

Early age attendance to orthodontic problems gives us the opportunity to treat the patient in lesser time because in such case we get an option of designing and formulating the smile in respect to the unerupted teeth which can be aligned and repositioned by creating spaces. Thus there is no need to extract teeth or spend more time with braces!!

Adult patients
For the longest time braces were thought to be a treatment for adolescents, with a cut-off age of 19, after which potential patients would be too embarrassed to consider wearing metal braces. However, there is currently a great range of braces that provide discreet and comfortable teeth straightening, which allows patients to maintain their lifestyle with little or no discomfort.
