This is the future of orthodontics and the future is here today…..Improved accuracy, shorter overall treatment times, more patient comfort and less time at the dental chair are some of the advantages of going all digital.

Another key advantage is the computer-aided generation of appliances, designed and customized specifically for you! This leads to increased accuracy and precision and an overall result that is beautifully customized according to your needs, more efficient and faster.

Amongst the first in the Middle East to adopt this technique with extensive expertise in treating various complex cases with aligners in addition to providing continuing education courses and certification courses to orthodontists across the Middle East.

Aligners takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of removable, smooth, virtually invisible plastic trays created and customized for you and only you! Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements we have planned for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

Why Orthodontics

In some cases, Leaving misaligned teeth and poor bites untreated may lead to other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, joint problems, as well as abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces and difficulty in chewing. Orthodontic treatment can help you keep good dental health. In some cases the upper front teeth may ‘stick out’ and become easily damaged by accident. Orthodontic treatment can push your teeth back reducing their risk of fracture.

What is the best age for braces?

Many orthodontic problems are easier to correct if detected at an early age before jaw growth has slowed. In some cases, early treatment may mean that a patient can avoid surgery and more serious complications. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child first visit an orthodontist by age 7 or earlier or earlier if a problem is detected by parents, family dentist or child’s physician.

In most cases, however, full orthodontic treatment usually starts when all or almost all permanent teeth have erupted, typically around age 10-12 years old.

Adult Orthodontics

It’s never too late to look your best! You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. Today, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Advances in orthodontics have made treatment more comfortable and more successful than ever for people of all ages. Technological advances in tooth colored, invisible braces and removable invisible aligners have also made orthodontic treatment for many adults more acceptable. Often we will need to work with other dental practitioners — general dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists, and oral surgeons — to provide you with our best results.

Phase I, or early interceptive treatment, is a limited orthodontic treatment phase that is done before all of the permanent teeth have erupted, between the ages of six and ten. This treatment is sometimes recommended to make more space for developing teeth, correction of cross-bites, over-bites, and under-bites, eliminate harmful oral habits or re-direct abnormal growth of jaw bones. Phase II treatment, also called comprehensive treatment, involves full braces and is done when all permanent teeth have erupted.
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. Everyone wants a beautiful and healthy smile! 20% – 25% of orthodontic patients today are Adults.
Braces and aligners use steady gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper positions. The brackets that are placed on your teeth and the archwire that connects them are the main components. When the archwire is placed into the brackets it applies pressure to move your teeth to their new, more ideal positions. In the case of aligners, each new aligner is designed to progressively exert gentle pressures on teeth in a pre-programmed manner.
Treatment time vary according to each case. Average time is from one to two years. Actual treatment time can be affected by rate of growth and severity of the correction needed. Treatment length is also dependent upon patient compliance. Maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping regular appointments are important in keeping treatment time on schedule.
The placement of bands and brackets on your teeth does not hurt. Once your braces are placed and connected with the archwires, however, you may feel some discomfort for a few days only.
No. Braces do not interfere with speech but removable braces may need a few days of adaptation before your speech is back to normal.
No. It is recommended, however, that patients protect their teeth by wearing a mouth guard when participating in any sporting activity. Mouth guards are inexpensive, comfortable, and come in a variety of colors and patterns.
No. However, there may be an initial period of adjustment. In addition, brace covers can be provided to prevent discomfort.
Call our office as soon as possible to book an emergency visit to have it checked and fixed. If a wire sticks out and is irritating place wax on the wire to reduce the annoyance.
Orthodontic fees depend on the severity of the patient’s case, type of appliance used, phases of treatment, additional auxiliaries and the length of time in treatment. Your specific treatment fee and financing options will be discussed in detail during your Financial Consultation.
