Orthodontics

ORTHODONTICS

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening and correcting the tooth alignment.

Who Needs Orthodontic Treatment?

1Who Needs Orthodontic Treatment?

Today children as well as adults are choosing to have orthodontic treatment since age is no longer a factor that governs the feasibility of the treatment. But as you grow older the duration of the treatment is increased since it is easier to shift and align teeth during the growth phase of the jaws. Orthodontic treatment corrects -malocclusion (bite or occlusion is off) -tooth malalignment (crooked teeth)

2Why Treat Malocclusion?

Orthodontics is not only used to improve your appearance. Malocclusion or malaligned teeth can have long term effects, such as:

  • Interference with normal growth and development of the jaws
  • Abnormal swallowing patterns
  • Abnormal facial muscle function
  • Impairment of chewing
  • speech defects
  • susceptibility to cavities due to the difficulty of removing plaque from crooked teeth vulnerability to accidents or fractured teeth (if your front teeth stick out, they may be more easily injured)
3How Do Braces Work?

Teeth can slowly be moved and shifted into proper position by applying pressure in certain directions. Bands, wires and elastics are placed on the teeth to move them in the right direction. This takes place slowly and carefully over an extended period of time. Shifting teeth back into a functional position can take months to years, but eventually you'll have a new and improved mouth! Retainers are often used after the braces, to hold the teeth in their new position until they are stable. It is important to wear the braces or an appliance for however long it takes. If you quit at any point during treatment, the teeth can shift back into their old position.

2Can I be treated with Invisible aligners ?

Invsible aligners have been proven to be successful for the correction of a variety of malocclusions, to discuss your individual case please visit your Dentist

3How much does it cost ?

Cost of the appliance varies depending upon severity of malocclusion, duration of treatment and the treatment plan decided by the treating Dentist

4What’s the usual time it takes for treatment to complete?

Since each malocclusion is different and the response to the treatment varies from patient to patient, so predicting actual treatment plan is difficult. Your treating Dentist will be in a better position to answer such queries. Normally the treatment time is comparable to the time taken by conventional braces.

5Where do I get the Invisible aligners?

To get Invisible aligners you need to visit your nearest general dentist providing the treatment.

6How long do I have to wear the aligners?

While wearing appliance, it applies continuous correcting force to align teeth, so it’s empirical that the appliance is worn full time, except when brushing, eating or drinking hot and cold beverages.

7How do I make sure teeth wouldn’t shift back after the treatment?

At the end of treatment retainers are given to maintain the position of teeth as achieved at the end of treatment. Duration to wear retainers, in order to maintain the teeth in corrected position, varies from patient to patient and is also dependent on the type of malocclusion thus can be better prescribed by the treating Dentist.

Cost effective

Using Original patient dentition to make the aligners During the whole manufacturing process They uses original patient dentition from casting to treatments and aligner fabrication which adds to the accuracy of the end product and ensures better treatment outcome.

More precision at every step of the treatment

Invis Align enables you to increase your standard of care. The entire process is designed to deliver customized aligner that moves each tooth directly along the most efficient path to achieve the desired goal. By optimizing each aligners output, you minimize the number of aligners and intermediate changes required that means shorter treatment times for patients, and increased capacity for practice.

Actual diagnostic setup

Invis Align provides actual diagnostic setup images for precise information regarding the desired goals.

Using original gum tissue of the patient

Invis Align uses original gum tissue to fabricate aligners, thus providing lesser number of clinical modifications at the time of insertion of aligners.

Faster turn around time

Invis Align commits to provide aligners within 3 weeks after receiving the impression at our manufacturing facility.

Precise space gaining through IPR of the original dentition No virtual IPR

InvisAlign provides you precise information regarding IPR on each surface of the tooth without any digital errors

Damon System

Advantages:

The Damon® System of low-friction passive self-ligating brackets, hi-tech light-force archwires and minimally invasive treatment protocols is clinically proven to deliver remarkable advantages for you and your patients.

  1. Extraordinary results
  2. Faster treatment
  3. Fewer appointments
  4. Greater patient comfort
  5. Less reliance on extracts, surgery, RPEs and headgears

Damon Clear

Damon Clear uses what's called a "passive" slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket, allowing them to move freely. This reduces friction and binding, so your teeth can move quickly and more comfortably.

Fast Treatment

See results faster than you might think. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces. In contrast, Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.

Another benefit: No need to worry about lost, misplaced or forgotten clear aligners, so you get in and out of treatment quickly.

Greater Comfort without Tightening

Clinical studies show that the Damon System provides more comfortable orthodontic treatment than traditional braces.5

Damon Clear uses tieless braces that don't need to be "tightened" and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. Other styles of braces use elastics or active clips that bind archwires in place, which can slow down treatment and cause pain.

Easy to Keep Clean

Clinical studies indicate that the elastomeric rings of traditional braces collect more bacteria and plaque and can lead to adverse gingival conditions.8 Unlike traditional clear braces, Damon Clear does not use elastomeric rings, so your braces are easy to keep clean.

Ceramic (Tooth Colored) Braces

Ceramic brackets are made of composite materials. They are very strong and generally do not stain. Adults like to choose ceramic because they "blend in" with the teeth and are less noticeable than metal. The ligatures (tiny rubber bands) that hold the arch wire on to the ceramic brackets are often white or clear. This looks great at first, but the ligatures can stain. Unless you eat a lot of curry, smoke, or drink a lot of black coffee, this generally isn't a problem. Note that the ligatures are changed each time you get an adjustment -- usually, monthly. It's only the ligatures that stain, not the brackets themselves!

Lingual Braces

These are the ultimate in brace concealing technology. They are placed on the backs of your teeth so nobody will even see that you have them on, unless they get an up close and personal look at the inside of your mouth.

Usually, lingual brackets are made of metal.
Orthodontists need special training to be able to treat patients with lingual braces. Therefore, not every orthodontist provides them.

Metallic Braces

Metal brackets are the ones that are most frequently used. They appear as small metal buttons that are glued to the front of each tooth. These tend to be less expensive than other types of brackets. Additionally, they can be made colorful with ligature rubber bands that come in a wide range of colors.
A major drawback of these braces is there color which makes its use very limited in cases of adult orthodontics. .
