The goal of orthodontic treatment is a beautiful smile and a good bite—meaning straight teeth that mesh well with the teeth in the opposite jaw and look great. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. Many people find a beautiful smile adds to self-esteem, self-confidence and leads toward career advancement.  We live in a competitive world and a great smile can give you the edge.

Orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan. With good care, including orthodontic treatment when necessary, teeth can last a lifetime.

Treatment in children or teenagers who are still growing may yield results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have completed their growth.

A healthy bite and good looking smile is as important at age 60 as it is at age 16. Even though adults are no longer growing, they can also enjoy improvements that come from orthodontic treatment. Your age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age.

Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your family, your smile, as well as your dental, physical and emotional health.

Orthodontic Treatment with Fixed Braces

Fixed appliances are braces that are stuck to the teeth. It cannot be removed from the mouth and should not become detached. Treatment of fixed braces is started after completing general dental treatment if required like dental filling, RCT, teeth cleaning and polishing, crown and bridge. Active treatment will, on average, take 1 or 2 years. In some cases, treatment may take longer and in other cases, shorter. Subsequently, you will usually be given retainers. Regular appointments are usually arranged 1 months once.

You should expect the following:

·    Some possible pain, funny speech or mouth ulceration, in the first few days after fitting of the appliance, and after appliance adjustments. You will get used to the appliance after a while. You can take your usual painkiller medication if necessary. 
·      Some possible discomfort while eating and jaw clicking due to the change in tooth positions. This is usually temporary and will settle after treatment.
·     The successful outcome of treatment is mostly dependent on your own effort. You must fulfil your responsibilities.

You must do the following during treatment:

  •           Keep your mouth clean. You must brush your teeth well after every meal. Failure to do so may cause caries and gum disease to develop. Use a fluoride toothpaste and a special 'bottle brush', if necessary, to clean under the wires. Added use of a fluoride mouthrinse may also be beneficial.
  •           Eat only soft foods. Hard large and sticky pieces of food (nuts, crisps, chunky meat, chewing gum etc) may damage your brace. You should cut large pieces of food into small ones before eating them.
