Orthodontics

Last Updated on Wednesday, 06 April 2011 19:22

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialist type of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of dental irregularities such as rotated, crowded, protruding teeth and poor jaw alignment.   It is about making the best of your teeth and improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Following treatment you can often eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily.

Overall, the aim is to improve your smile and personal appearance and to contribute to greater confidence, socially and professionally. It's to ensure you look your best for life's big occasions: professional events, weddings, anniversaries and birthdays.

Anyone who feels that their teeth are not quite as straight as they could be should consult an orthodontist. There's no age limit for treatment.

Adult Orthodontics

You're never too old for braces and therefore it's never too late to achieve the smile you have always wanted. Adults are now able to receive orthodontic treatment which may not have been available to them as children. Technological advances in orthodontics have made braces more discreet and easier to wear.

Braces for children

For children, we usually wait until patients are 11 or 12 but earlier intervention may be beneficial long term if an orthodontic problem is detected. Sometimes, there may be orthodontic problems hidden behind seemingly acceptable smiles and while treatment may not be started until years later, early examination will allow the orthodontist to detect and evaluate these problems in order to plan treatment for the   appropriate time.

Some early warning signs that may indicate your child should see an orthodontist:

  • Crowded or misplaced teeth
  • Protrusion 
  • Deep bite (overbite)
  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Thumb and finger sucking
  • Speech difficulty
  • Difficulty in chewing or biting
  • Grinding or clenching of teeth
  • Jaws that shift or make sounds
  • Missing teeth
  • Signs of enamel wear

Treatment Options

We use the very latest orthodontic techniques, equipment and technology to give you the smile you desire, in modern and comfortable surroundings. Treatment may involve the extraction of teeth but only when necessary. 

 Fixed braces are available in tooth coloured ceramic or metal. They consist of small brackets which are fitted to your teeth and very thin metal wires that gently push your teeth into their new, beautifully aligned positions.

 Lingual braces are the perfect choice if you want to change your smile without everyone knowing.  Working similarly to traditional fixed braces, but fitted behind the teeth, lingual braces are totally invisible when you smile.

Devon Dental  05NEW“We have for many years treated a great number of patients who are extremely nervous of dental treatment and where a local anaesthetic is required, there are various methods we will consider. One of my favoured techniques is the WAND™ pain-free injection system. It reduces anxiety and is particularly helpful when treating children or those with needle phobia who we find don’t even realise they’ve had an injection” Dr Mitesh Badiani

The Wand™ System is the easy alternative where local anaesthesia is required, having many advantages over a standard syringe.

Key Benefits:
  1. Higher Patient Comfort
  2. Reduced Patient Anxiety
  3. Faster numbing onset and sensation recovery
  4. Especially useful for paediatric patients

It is very popular with our patients!
