With advanced orthodontic treatment options, children, teenagers and adults can correct the alignment of their teeth, jaws and lips in a safe and comfortable manner. Perfectly aligned attractive teeth contribute towards providing a pleasant smile and charming facial appearance, which will in turn boost your level of confidence.
Orthodontic Treatment Ensures Outstanding Dental and Physical Health
Dental malocclusions such as protruded teeth, crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, extensively spaced teeth, overbites, crossbites, openbites, underbites and several other irregularities can be rectified with suitable orthodontic treatment. Properly aligned teeth are an essential requirement when it comes to avoiding chewing disorders, digestion problems, gum diseases, abnormal wear of tooth surface, tooth loss and speech impairments.
Comfortable Procedures to Align Your Teeth, Jaws and Lips
To recommend the right orthodontic treatment procedures, the orthodontist would evaluate your teeth, jaws and facial structure with the help of X-rays, photographs and bite impressions. Once your particular disorder is clearly identified, treatment with orthodontic braces including conventional metal braces, ceramic braces or Invisalign braces is recommended.
Orthodontic treatment with metal braces is usually prescribed for children. Ceramic braces are less noticeable and don’t get stained or discolored. Adults and teenagers prefer procedures with Invisalign, the clear invisible aligners, as it offers more comfort and aesthetic benefits. These braces are designed using 3D imaging technology according to your teeth structure. Normally, Invisalign treatment can be completed within 9-15 months and the patient has to wear about 18 -30 sets of aligners; all this might vary in individual cases. Orthodontists regularly assess the progress achieved and suggest modifications according to the current requirements.
Approach an Experienced Orthodontist
Orthodontic treatment to correct the alignment of your teeth, jaws and lips should be provided only by an experienced orthodontist. Make sure that your orthodontist has the necessary qualifications and experience. It is also important to check out how well-equipped the orthodontic facility is. These considerations will ensure that you enjoy a rewarding experience as regards your orthodontic treatment.
