It’s never late to get your smile straight! At Kamal Dental Clinic, our orthodontic interventions help people with irregularly aligned teeth. The problem is treated or corrected with the use of braces or, in some cases, through surgery. Although childhood is the best time to get your smile corrected, adults can also have the orthodontic treatment done! Orthodontic treatment can be done with many kinds of appliances, which are commonly known as ‘braces’. Call us today to mend your smile.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment

Fixed Brace
In a fixed brace, the brackets (usually of metal or ceramic) and bands are temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and transmits a force onto the teeth, which causes them to move gradually to close the spaces.
Removable Brace
Removable braces are mainly suggested after you have completed the treatment with a fixed brace. The procedure involves attaching delicate wires and springs across the teeth. These wires put slight pressure and move the teeth to close gaps. The plate used in a removable brace is easy to take out to clean. Hence, maintaining oral hygiene is fairly easy and convenient with removable braces.
Functional Brace
When there is a need to alter or improve the way the jaw grows, functional braces are used. They work by using the power of your jaw muscles and can even help improve various jaw problems.
Invisible Brace
If you don’t want to wear hideous-looking braces, invisible braces are for you! They are tough, clear plastic aligners (or moulds) which are used to straighten teeth. Several sets of specially moulded, slightly different aligners are made for each patient. They can be easily removed for eating, drinking and brushing.

Importance of Orthodontic Treatment

Crooked and crowded teeth often result in tooth decay and gum diseases which leads to tooth loss. Other orthodontic problems can cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient functioning, excessive stress on the bone that supports the teeth.

Kamal Dental Clinic is well equipped with the latest technologies to ensure painless orthodontic treatment. Our head dentist has extensive experience in the field of orthodontics to ensure efficient treatment. We offer both adult and children braces at our centres. Other than this, we also offer customized invisible braces.

What Should One Know Before Getting Braces?

  • Age is just a number to get braces: adults and children both can get braces.
  • Choosing an experienced Orthodontist is important for efficient treatment.
  • It takes around two years to finish an orthodontic treatment and the cost varies on your teeth alignment.
  • Be prepared for some temporary discomfort, however, after the braces settle in you can eat whatever you like, just avoid sticky food like toffees.
  • Beware of allergies before getting braces as some people are allergic to elements found in brackets and wires of braces. Our dentists can provide alternative elements.
