or BRACES is one term one and every is familiar
with, be it a small child or an adult. Any dental or facial
irregularity needs to be treated in todays aesthetic
Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics
of the smile but it also improves bad bites(malocclusion). Malocclusion
or bad bites in any form, should be treated as if left
untreated they can result in a variety of problems.
Crowded teeth are
more difficult to brush and floss which may further
contribute to tooth decay and gum

Crossbites can result
in unfavourable growth and uneven tooth wear.
Openbites can result in
tongue thrusting habits and speech impediments.
not only creates a pretty smile but a healthier you!!!!
orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, however
there is an optimal time period to begin the treatment. Beginning
treatment at this time ensures the greatest result
and least amount of time and expense, because of timely
detection of problems.Through our INTERCEPTIVE PROGRAMME
FOR KIDS we can …create room for crowded erupting
teth,….reduce need for tooth removal,…preserve
space for unerrupted teeth,……..reduce
time with braces and…..create a facial symmetry
by influencing jaw growth.
at GUMS N SMILES recommends that the initial orthodontic
evaluation should occur at the first sign of an ortho
problem or no later than age 7!! At this early age
orthodontic treatment may not be necessary but a vigilant
examination can anticipate the most advantageous time
to begin treatment.
the everchanging scenario in the dental field and
newer techniques being introduced everyday the GOOD
NEWS is that orthodontic (braces) treatment isn’t
limited for kids anymore!! We at GUMS N SMILES believe
that its never too late to change your tooth alignment
with orthodontics (provided your gums and bone structure
teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone
loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel,
headaches and jaw joint pain.Orthodontic treatment
at later stages in life can not only dramatically
improve your personal appearance and self esteem but
also create a healthier you.
The new techniques and appliances used by the orthodontist
at GUMS N SMILES greatly reduce discomfort, frequency
of visits, treatment time and also allows you to choose
from several options.You now don’t have to stick
to using metal braces but have an option of choosing
from transluscent and /or tooth coloured ceramic braces, invisible
(lingual) braces or transparent aligners (invisible braces)
to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
braces are the most common type that are now smaller, more
comfortable and more attractive.They are also very
popular with kids as they love using different colours
of ligature ties.
&/OR CERAMIC BRACES
braces or clear braces are very similar to metal braces
in function but are tooth coloured thereby making
them less noticeable. They are most popular with adult
patients due to their cosmetic appeal.
TRANSPARENT ALIGNERS (INVISIBLE BRACES)
Transparent aligners (invisible braces)
is a great option for patients who do not have severe
problems and / or are concerned with aesthetics during
the treatment.The invisible braces system is a series of
clear overlay templates called aligners that have
been generated by computer simulation to gradually
move the teeth. Each tray is made to move your teeth
slightly and is worn for a few weeks.This system is
availableto adult patients and some teenagers with
certain bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate
for the invisible braces system.
BRACES (INVISIBLE BRACES)
are the ultimate in brace concealing technology!! Lingual
braces are attached to the backside of the teeth, which
makes them completely non visible.This advanced method
makes lingual orthodontics particularly well suited
for adults, who often want to improve the look and
function of their teeth without letting anyone else
know about their treatment.
Lingual orthodontics are truly remarkable. They let
one achieve the stunning results orthodontics offer, while
at the same time being completely invisible!!!
