Dental braces can straighten teeth and correct your bite for a beautiful smile.

Dental braces

A healthy and beautiful smile can light up a room. Let us support you on your journey to achieving straight teeth with dental braces, suitable for all ages, including youths and adults.

Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, straightening your teeth helps with improving your oral health by making your teeth easier to clean and reducing the risk of plaque build-up.

By having an aligned bite, your teeth will be able to rest properly when chewing, reducing teeth grinding which may lead to premature wear and tear and can even improve speech problems such as lisps.

  • At the first visit, our dentist may take X-rays, impressions, and photos of your teeth to diagnose any problems like an overbite, crowded or misaligned teeth, before providing a treatment plan.

    The next 1-3 visits involve inserting the braces. Thereafter, our dentist will be seeing you every 4-8 weeks to adjust your braces, following the plan carefully crafted for you.

  • It might take a day or two to get used to talking and eating with your newly fixed braces.

    The slight discomfort you experience is normal. Your teeth are in the process of straightening. Over time, this discomfort reduces as your teeth straighten out.

    Meanwhile, avoid biting on hard pieces of food such as whole uncut apples to prevent your braces from dislodging.

    If ulcers develop on the side of your cheeks or lips due to the friction from the braces, you can relieve it with dental wax provided by our dentist or bought over the counter at pharmacies.

    Talk to our dentist if you experience any further discomfort, and we will adjust the treatment plan to a pace you are comfortable with.

  • Some people may find the idea of the look of rubber bands in the teeth off-putting, preventing them from starting on a braces plan. For such cases, we may recommend the Damon system.

    Damon braces are a self-tightening system that removes the need for elastic or metal ties. Combined with transparent brackets, they also look more discreet than conventional braces.
