Orthodontics involves the diagnosis and treatment of all problems associated with an malocclusion. For example, if your teeth are missing , misaligned , crowded or split or have not developed properly as a result of an injury to your teeth or jaw or thumb sucking or any other reason, this may be the cause of an malocclusion.
We can bring your teeth together and straighten them into harmony and correct any functional problem with your bite. Malocclusion may affect the person’s physical appearance, the speech, the self-confidence and wellbeing.
Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are adhered to your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic adjustment so very light pressure can gradually straighten your teeth over a period of time.
At Smile Point Dental our comprehensive orthodontic treatments include:
- Computerized methods for planning and operative perspectives.
- With this modelling appliance, Brackets, wires, and bands are specifically crafted for each individual tooth acquiring precise fixtures.
Throughout the course of wearing braces, you’ll need to take care of them. That means eating well and avoiding foods that are hard, crunchy and sugary. Eating too many sugary foods with braces can lead to plaque build-up around your brackets, and that could permanently stain or damage your teeth.
We recommend you still have regular check-ups and cleans to maintain your oral health throughout your orthodontic treatment.
