Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry which is broadly concerned with the correction of abnormalities and irregularities of teeth and jaws. These abnormalities, or malocclusion is caused by hereditary or any other external factors like accidents. Bad oral habits like thumb sucking, lip biting and breathing from the mouth can also cause malocclusion, thus adversely affecting the normal development of the teeth.
Orthodontic treatments are the dental procedures which help to move poorly aligned teeth to normal position, thus helping you against some serious problems like improper bite, difficulty in speaking and chewing, jaw problems etc.
Nagem Dental Clinic Dubai provides all services related to orthodontics.
There are various types of appliances which help to get your teeth back to normal position. The severity of the malocclusion decides the types of appliance that you should wear. The main types of orthodontic appliances are:
These appliances are fixed with the teeth and cannot be removed by the patient himself. Fixed appliances include:
A patient has to go for regular dental visits to make sure that the braces are working properly. The dentist usually gives an appointment of six to eight weeks which should be strictly followed or the braces will take more time. If your braces are damaged or broken, visit your dental clinic as soon a possible, as this may again extend the total time of the treatment
The duration of this treatment depends upon the severity of the problem, but usually it takes 1.5 to 3 years to correct the position of the teeth.
Our expert dental team at Nagem Dental Center will give you quality advice about your braces. Ignoring the dentist’s advice may elongate your treatment time or make it unsuccessful.
As the name suggests, these appliances can be removed by the patient himself. There are many appliances which can be used, but we at nagem dental clinic use the best one: Invisalign. Invisalign uses the best approach in order to properly position your teeth. These are a series of aligners which are created for a perfect smile. These aligner trays are made up of clear plastic which is very comfortable to wear. These trays gradually shift your teeth in place without someone realising that you are getting your teeth straight.
Before you get teeth aligners note that these are used for the patients who have mild or moderately crowded teeth. But the patients who have overcrowding or large spaces between teeth, they might need a more complex treatment.
Aligners are to be worn for at least 20 hours a day if you want the best results. And the total time aligners take to completely get your teeth right is between 6 months to 2 years.
If you are planning to wear aligners in Dubai, visit Nagem Dental Clinic now.
