Orthodontics

Overview - Orthodontic Treatment in Ajman

Orthodontics is a specialized field within dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of misaligned teeth and jaws.  Orthodontists are dental specialists who undergo additional training beyond dental school to become experts in the field of orthodontics. 

The primary goal of our orthodontist in Ajman is to provide quality orthodontic treatment to improve the alignment of teeth and jaws, leading to better oral health and overall facial aesthetics.

Key aspects of our orthodontic treatment in Ajman

  1. Diagnosis and Treatment Planning:

    Orthodontic treatment begins with a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth, jaws, and facial structure.

    Diagnostic tools such as X-rays, photographs, and impressions may be used to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

 

  1. Orthodontic Issues Addressed:

    Malocclusion: Misalignment of teeth or jaws, which can result in problems such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites.

    Crowding: Insufficient space in the jaw for teeth to properly align.

    Spacing: Gaps between teeth due to excessive space in the jaw.

    Dysfunctional Bite: Problems with the way the upper and lower teeth come together when the mouth is closed.

 

  1. Orthodontic Appliances:

    Braces: Traditional metal braces consist of brackets attached to each tooth and wires that apply pressure to move the teeth gradually.

    Clear Aligners: Transparent, removable trays (e.g., Invisalign) that gradually shift teeth into the desired position.

    Lingual Braces: Brackets and wires are placed on the inside (tongue side) of the teeth for a less visible appearance.

 
  1. Treatment Process:

    Our Orthodontic treatment in Ajman typically involves a series of appointments for adjustments and progress assessments.

    The duration of treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case, patient cooperation, and the chosen orthodontic appliances.

 

  1. Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment:

    Improved Oral Health: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.

    Enhanced Aesthetics: Orthodontic treatment can improve the appearance of the smile and facial features.

    Functional Improvement: Correcting misalignments can lead to improved bite function and jaw alignment.

 

  1. PostTreatment Maintenance:

    After the active phase of treatment, patients often need to wear retainers to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original positions.

    Regular follow-up appointments with the orthodontist are recommended to monitor long-term results.

Orthodontic treatment can be provided to individuals of various ages, from children to adults. Early orthodontic intervention in childhood can help prevent more severe problems and simplify treatment later on. However, orthodontic treatment is effective at any age, and many adults choose to undergo treatment to improve their oral health and smile aesthetics.
