Orthodontic Solutions For All Ages

Today, everyone desires to have a beautiful smile which has become the token of confident appearance. Thank to the modern technology, orthodontics is now available regardless of age.

Braces and orthodontic treatment are used to correct “bad bites,” or malocclusion (teeth that are crowded or crooked). In some cases your teeth may be straight, but your upper and lower jaws may not meet properly. These jaw or tooth alignment problems may be inherited or could result from injury, early or late tooth loss, or thumbsucking.

Straightening your teeth can be accomplished in different ways. The kind of orthodontic treatment you have will depend on your preference and the options provided by your dentist or orthodontist. (ADA article)

When are braces necessary?

Orthodontic treatments might not only be necessary because of aesthetic reasons - we can get rid of bad habits and even jaw development is influenceable when it comes to children. As far as adults are concerned, not only aesthetic corrections justify the usage of braces but they might also be needed before getting dental prostheses or because of jaw joint problems. Braces might also be a part of periodontal disease treatments.

If you have an abnormal bite your dentist may recommend braces or another orthodontic treatment to straighten out your smile. Correcting the problem can create a nice-looking smile, but more importantly, orthodontic treatment results in a healthier mouth. Not correcting an abnormal bite could result in further oral health problems, including:

  • tooth decay
  • gum disease
  • tooth loss
  • affected speech and/or chewing
  • abnormal wear to tooth enamel
  • jaw problems

Thus, we aim not only to restore regular smile but also to shape up the proper occlusion and functionality.

Is it only worthwhile from childhood?

It’s expedient to visit the orthodontic specialist during early childhood since this is the beginning of the mixed dentures period. At this early stage, all the bad habits are recognizable - in most cases even a removable instrument is enough to achieve the desired result. In certain cases we are working together with a speech therapist in order to get the perfect result.

At the same time you don’t need to give up having braces as an adult: thanks to modern orthodontic instruments, this treatment can be done after the jaw development is over.

Step by step

At your first visit to our clinic, we examine the status of the teeth, we take an imprint of the jawbones and we take photos - then we discuss the demands with the patient, including the reasons why he/she wants an orthodontic instrument.

At the second visit, after having examined the patterns, imprints, x-rays and photos - we suggest various treatment alternatives and price calculations to the patient. These documents contain the detailed treatment plan comprising the whole period of orthodontia.

We apply all types of orthodontic instruments - whether fixed or removable, made of metal, aesthetic or invisible.
