A new smile can begin today
Many people think that orthodontic treatment is just for children. A large percentage of patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset - their smile.Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. The biological mechanism of tooth movement is consistent at any age, albeit occurring over a slightly increased period of time in adults. Patients of all ages, including adolescents and adults, receive orthodontic care for healthier teeth and gums, improved chewing from properly aligned teeth, and increased confidence from aesthetically pleasing teeth and smile.
The benefits of an improved smile :
Straight teeth can make you look younger and are a part of a healthy lifestyle for today's active adults. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Straight teeth can also help you resist gum disease as you grow older. Renewed self-confidence can be helpful in landing a new job or relating to others with an attractive smile.
Latest Advances :
Recent advances in scientific knowledge and orthodontic technology have greatly enhanced the aesthetics, precision and comfort of orthodontic appliances. The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options.
Individualised Solutions :
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, lingual braces (Harmony®) or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth. One treatment method we and our patients have grown to like is Invisalign®, this treatment consists of a series of clear aligners used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. The Invisalign® system is custom-made to address each patient’s individual problems using a treatment plan devised by the orthodontist. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment.
We specialise in the treatment of patients with complex orthodontic problems; Dr. Nasim often coordinates interdisciplinary treatment provided by a number of dental specialists who work together as a team, to ensure the an optimal result is achieved for each individual patient. Our patients receive the finest coordinated and collaborative care provided by leading adjunct dental specialists including corrective jaw (orthognathic) surgery as well periodontal, prosthodontic and/or restorative therapy.
