Looking For a perfect Smile?
A beautiful smile to light up the day. A good alignment of teeth greatly improves dental hygiene, which in turn prevents cavities and gum problems. But you should never underestimate the aesthetic aspect of a beautiful smile that enhances self-esteem and confidence.
Children and teenagers are not the only ones who need orthodontic treatments. Increasingly, adults in the late 60’s are turning to orthodontistry to improve their bite and prevent early loss
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime
When To Go In For Treatment
- Overbite, sometimes called “buck teeth”— where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth
- Underbite— a “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
- Crossbite— when the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
- Open bite— space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
- Misplaced midline— when the centre of your upper front teeth does not line up with the centre of your lower front teeth
- Spacing— gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth
- Crowding— when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate
Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws.
