We have the best Orthodontists at our clinics in Dubai and offer Advanced Orthodontic treatments for both children and adults. Our Team of Orthodontic Specialists, headed by Dr. Joy Antony, are highly experienced and offer comprehensive orthodontics using the latest techniques.
Orthodontic Treatments for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children are seen by the orthodontist at age seven. There is an ideal time to start treatment for children with an orthodontic problem. The time is not necessarily based on age, but on the stage of the child’s development.
Certain problems, like jaw underdevelopment, may require treatment at the tender age of seven, with a second stage of orthodontics after all their permanent teeth come in. Whatever age your child begins treatment, we will ensure that they receive the best treatment that they require.
Advantages of Early Treatment:
- Moves the front teeth back so they are less susceptible to injury.
- Improves the relationship of upper and lower jaws, encouraging better development in the future.
- Improves facial appearance and self-esteem.
- May avoid or reduce the need for further treatment when patients are older.
Orthodontic Treatments for Adults
With an increased awareness of the benefits of a beautiful smile, almost 50% of our Orthodontic patients are now adults. Such patients require only minor tooth movement, and others, major surgical cases with dento-facial deformities. Because adult are no longer growing, treatment is approached differently than with children.
Our Specialist Orthodontists carefully formulate adult treatments, after offering their patients different options based on their dental concerns. Many adults in Dubai do not want to have regular braces due to social concerns. In such cases, we offer INVISIBLE LINGUAL braces and INVISALIGN aligners.
Types of Dental Braces
Self Ligating (Friction Free) Braces: Damon® and SmartClip™ Braces
Self-Ligating braces are the modern choice in Orthodontics. By avoiding the elastic O rings used in traditional braces, teeth move faster with less discomfort, and are easier to keep clean. Damon and SmartClip are the leading brands of self-ligating braces that we use.
INVISALIGN®: The invisible way to straighten teeth
INVISALIGN® is an alternative treatment to regular braces, allowing you to smile confidently during your treatment. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign® straightens your teeth discreetly. The aligners need to be changed approximately every two weeks – your teeth move little by little, towards the smile you’ve always wanted.
Lingual braces are totally invisible as they are bonded behind their teeth. The latest advancements in lingual braces mean they are now very comfortable and works as efficiently as the normal braces. Incognito is a revolutionary system that can treat the most complicated cases. The brackets and wires are custom made for each patient, using advanced CAD CAM technology, thus ensuring maximum efficiency and comfort. However minor corrections can be treated with other simple lingual braces.
Metal and Ceramic Braces
Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are made of a clear ceramic material, therefore, less noticeable than metal braces. The latest ceramic brackets are very strong, meaning they do not break very easily, and are more comfortable.
