Using Advanced Technology

Braces will straighten your teeth and correct your bite to create a more attractive smile. Not only would they improve the appearance of your smile, but straighter teeth will also help in getting healthier gums, increasing self-confidence. The main problems that can be corrected by braces are :

  • Crowded teeth

  • Spacing

  • Overbite

  • Deepbite

  • Crossbite

  • Narrow smiles

When should a child get braces? If it is a problem related to the growth of the jaw, it is recommended to start as early as 8 years old. We would then use a combination of a functional appliance and fixed braces, depending on what’s needed, to correct various growth problem, such as underdeveloped jaw, bite probles, narrow arches causing crossbites and crowding of the adult teeth. The advantages to start orthodontic treatment early (phase 1) are :

  • Guiding permanent teeth into more favourable positions

  • Reducing or eliminating the need for future jaw surgery

  • Reducing the need to extract permanent teeth

  • Allowing improved speech & swallowing by improving oral architecture
