Home | Orthodontics


Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry involved in correcting the placement and alignment of the teeth and jaw. Fixed and removable appliances can be used to treat overbites, underbites, spacing and crowding. These appliances include braces both metal and ceramic, aligners, space maintainers, removable retainers and headgear


Braces are the most common appliance used is orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, they have come a long way. Basically, braces have two parts: brackets and wires. Wires move the teeth; brackets serve as stationary handles to hold the wires. As needed for an individual’s treatment, other components can be added.

1) conventional metal brackets

Brackets are affixed directly to teeth. Wires are threaded through slots in the brackets. Most braces go on the front of the teeth

1) Damon self ligating metal brackets

The Damon System utilizes a patented slide mechanism to connect archwires to the bracket while allowing the wire to move freely. The Damon System reduces friction and improves oral hygiene by eliminating elastic ties


Ceramic braces are constructed of a tooth-coloured, transparent material. They function similarly to metal braces, but they are more subtle and less noticeable.

Ceramic braces are less noticeable than metal braces and are a more ideal pick for ADULTS AND CHILDREN.


Clear Aligners are transparent trays made of special material which are used to straighten teeth just like braces. They use gentle and constant force to move the teeth in the required position without going through the hassles of metal wires and brackets. They are custom made for each patient through a digital scan.


Invisalign is one brand of clear aligners, an orthodontic device that corrects crooked teeth. Clear aligners, also known as invisible braces, are custom-made mouthpieces molded from medical-grade plastic that apply pressure to teeth, guiding them to the desired position.


Unlike metal braces, clear plastic Invisalign aligners closely fit a user’s teeth and are nearly invisible from a distance. A discreet style is one of the main reasons many people choose transparent aligners over braces.


Clear aligners fit flush against teeth and don’t cause the cuts or discomfort that braces can. While wearers do experience some discomfort with teeth repositioning, the inside of the mouth is largely spared pain with Invisalign.

Ease of Brushing and Flossing

With clear aligners, users simply remove the mouthpiece and brush and floss normally. No need for a lengthy and challenging dental care process as with traditional braces.

No Danger With Hard or Chewy Foods

Braces wearers should avoid hard and chewy foods, including nuts, popcorn, and bagels, to prevent damage or irritation. But because people with aligners must remove them before eating, they don’t need to avoid these foods.

Fewer Orthodontist Visits

Some patients won’t need to visit the orthodontist as frequently with aligners as with braces. While Invisalign treatments usually require a visit every four to six weeks, some online companies provide customers with clear aligners and zero orthodontist visits, although this isn’t the best option for everyone. For braces treatment, customers must come into the office for every adjustment.

The Drawbacks of Clear Aligners

Not for Complex Corrections

Transparent aligners do not work for every situation and are typically best for people who need only minor straightening.

Must Remove to Eat

Patients may drink water when wearing Invisalign trays but should remove them whenever eating or drinking anything other than water. The plastic is soft and easily damaged by food. Additionally, the clear plastic stains easily and warps with heat, so users should remove the aligners when drinking hot or colorful beverages.

Requires Discipline

People must wear the Invisalign or clear aligner at least 20 to 22 hours daily. Wearing them less often may slow progress or even harm the final results. Because it’s easy to take them out, only people who are disciplined enough to wear them the required number of hours each day should opt for clear aligners. Another concern, especially for kids, is losing aligners, which costs more money and extends treatment time.
