Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with problems relating to your ‘bite’ or ‘malocclusion’. If you find that you have crooked or misaligned teeth; or that there are too many teeth in your jaw (overcrowding) then you will need some form of corrective device known as a brace.
At one time, you rarely saw anyone in braces except kids and teens.But more and more adults are learning that they too can enjoy a straight, healthy smile.Whether you suffered a relapse after not wearing your retainer or you want to check into orthodontics for the first time, we can help. Orthodontic treatment has really advanced with the development of a certain known as the Damon system of brackets. This ensures a very comfortable and quick treatment for our patients mostly without any extraction required.
Benefits of Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment provides a number of functional and aesthetic benefits to both adolescent and adult patients. These include:
People are discovering that straightening their teeth is something that can be achieved and effectively, and that treatment can be performed at any age.
An adult’s jawbones are more mature than an adolescent’s, so it may take a bit longer for the most effective results.
Damon orthodontics are the best bet anyone with complicated alignment and bite problems and we are proud to be able to offer such an option
It’s very important that children have an orthodontic evaluation by the time they have reached age 7, which is typically the time when they have already developed some permanent teeth.
This makes it easier for your dentist to see if they may encounter mis alignments and other dental issues later in life that can be corrected before they become serious.
Early treatment can reduce the risk of eventual permanent tooth extraction, impacted teeth, and other conditions, as well as correct over-, under-, or cross-bite issues.
As permanent teeth start to come in, orthodontic treatment can guide them into a good position and give them enough room to result in straighter teeth alignment.
Damon system is widely utilised as it does not require excessive forces to move the teeth, making the treatment very comfortable and pain free.
