What are the benefits of undergoing Orthodontic Treatment?
People are often very self-conscious by the way they smile. When teeth are aligned it enhances our self esteem which is important in many social and professional circumstances.
ORAL HYGIENE/CLEANING OF TEETH:
As important as our overall appearance, orthodontics is beyond the aesthetics. Teeth that are crowded are often difficult for daily routine cleaning and flossing. Inadequate cleaning are major factors in tooth decay and periodontal disease due to the buildup of plaque and calculus and unhealthy gums. When teeth have good alignment they help enhance an individual’s oral hygiene as it is much easier to brush, clean and floss!
The occlusion refers to the meeting of the Upper and Lower teeth during chewing or when the jaws are closed – also commonly known as the ‘Bite’. The proper alignment of teeth will promote proper and thorough chewing of food and can avoid problems such as unnecessary wearing and grinding. A Bad Bite may lead to more serious problems such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint).

What is the right age for braces?
the first assessment for orthodontic intervention should be around the 8 years of age. An assessment of the development of the bone pattern and teeth pattern are usually done to ensure the child's upper and lower jaws are developing at the right position. we also check of any undesirable habits that can impede the growth and development of the upper and lower jaw.
