Orthodontics is the study of dentistry that is concerned with the treatment of improper bites, and crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment can help fix the patient's teeth and set them in the right place. Orthodontists usually use braces and retainers to set the patient's teeth. There are, however, orthodontists who work on reconstructing the entire face rather than focusing exclusively on teeth. After a course of active orthodontic treatment, patients will typically wear retainers, which maintain the teeth in their improved positions while surrounding bone reforms around them.

For comprehensive orthodontic treatment, most commonly, metal wires are inserted into orthodontic brackets (dental braces), which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material. The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into the desired positions.                                                                                                                                            

Orthodontic Treatment

Correction of Misaligned Teeth

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of dental and facial irregularities occurring as a result of:

  • A bad bite or malocclusion   
  • Missing or extra teeth                                                                    
  • Crooked teeth                                                          
  • Crowed teeth                                                                                                                  
  • An overbite                                                            
  • An underbite    
  • Misaligned or incorrect jaw position  
  • A disorder of the jaw joint

An attractive smile wins a lot of hearts and hence should not be underestimated; orthodontic treatment can benefit social career success, as well as improve one’s general attitude towards life.  

At what age can one start orthodontic screening and treatment?

  • Early childhood - you can have an orthodontic screening from the age of 7, by which time enough of the permanent teeth would have emerged, helping to identify potential problems. Do not wait for all the permanent teeth erupt in the mouth, as the earlier you start, the more the advantages.
  • During adolescent and teenage years –all permanent teeth would have come in by now, and treatment is most effective at this age
  • At adulthood –more complicated and often requires more time to fully correct a problem.
