The process of straightening teeth is called Orthodontics. It may be loosely defined as the science of moving teeth, straightening irregular, crowded or improperly placed teeth. Dentist who are specially qualified in this area of expertise are referred to as Orthodontists. We are one of the few clinics in DELHI that take pride in providing entire spectrum of orthodontic treatment options, including LINGUAL/INVISIBLE braces,Ceramic braces, SELF-LIGATING braces and also the Metal braces.

Why choose a specialist- Orthodontist?

Orthodontist is a dentist who is specially trained and qualified in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. All Orthodontists are dentists, but only about 6% of dentists are Orthodontists. One key piece of advice to patients, is seeking treatment from “Orthodontists” who have been formally trained in Orthodontics and awarded a degree recognized by the Dental council of India.

Who requires Orthodontic treatment?

Anyone with maligned and irregular teeth, buck teeth, crowded teeth, overlapping teeth or ones with with gap in between may require orthodontic treatment.

Why is Orthodontic treatment Improtant?

Orthodontic treatment can improve your dental health and change your facial appearance for the better, and it can boost your self esteem. Crowded teeth are difficult to clean and may contribute to tooth decay and gum diseases.

When should the treatment begin?

There is no single answer for this question because each orthodontic problem determines its own best starting time. For this reason it is recommended that every child first visit an orthodontist at the age of seven years. In many patients early treatment achieves better results that are unattainable once the face and jaws have finished growing. Another plus point is that early intervention frequently makes the completion of treatments at a later age easier and less time consuming.

What about adult treatment?

Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. The health of an individual’s gums and supporting bone is what’s most important in determining the prospects of improving an adult’s smile. Because an adult’s facial bones are no longer growing, certain corrections cannot be accomplished with braces alone and may require surgical intervention.

What does treatment involve?

This is commonly done by fixing braces to teeth and straightening them out. In some cases a patient may need to get some teeth removed in order to fix the braces. However, if the patient is seen at a young age and if the problem is not severe then entire treatment may be carried out without removal. It is critical therefore to visit an orthodontist at the earliest sign of irregular teeth.

Is the treatment very painful?

The treatment is certainly not painless, but the pain is mild and lasts for 2-3 days after initial visit to orthodontist. Recent advances in orthodontics have made treatment far more comfortable.

Does this treatment affect my performance at school/ work/ sports?

Not at all. You will only need to take reasonable care of your braces during contact sports like boxing, football, hockey, cricket etc . to prevent damage to the braces and injury to the teeth and lips. Treatment timeActive treatment with orthodontic appliance ranges from one to two years. The actual time depends on the growth, the co-operation of the patient and the severity of problem. 

 Lingual Orthodontics

Lingual orthodontics technique involves use of very small braces from behind the teeth,making them perfectly invisible!The best part is that the patients can appreciate the corrections of their tooth alignment as and when they happen.We use the S.T.B. line of lingual brackets, which are, arguably, the most advanced and smallest brackets in the world. Due to small size, speech is not at all disturbed and comfort is even more than with the conventional braces. Dr.Gandhi is specially trained to treat patients with this latest technique. Apart from lingual orthodontics, we also offer CLEAR ALIGNERS to treat moderate irregularities without using any wires or braces!

 

TIPS FOR PATIENTS

Dental decay (caries) and periodontal (gum) disease are among the most common diseases afflicting mankind, especially in the so-called advanced nations. The higher the standard of living, the more likely it is for tooth loss to occur.  As has been shown already, both dental caries and periodontal disease are the result of bacterial action, in the plaque, which collects on the teeth and gums.
If it is possible to cleanse the mouth completely of the bacterial plaque and maintain it that way, there would be low incidence of tooth decay or any other gum problems.

BRUSHING TEETH

The tooth has five surfaces - front, back, the two sides and the chewing surface. Brush the top and bottom teeth separately. Most dentists agree that the bristle tips should be applied at 45 degrees to the gum area just above where the teeth emerge and should concentrate on the gum margins (where most people miss). The bristles are moved back and forth with a gentle circular scrubbing motion and short strokes. Do not forget the teeth right at the back of the mouth and also the inside surface of the teeth. Finally brush all the biting surfaces. It often takes three or four visits to teach someone to brush effectively!

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are used to counter tooth loss. The procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, though it also falls into the category of cosmetic dentistry as well.

Although you have a number of restorative options for the treatment of missing teeth, none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as implants. In many cases, dental implants may be the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functionality of the teeth and supporting structures.
