Orthodontics is a highly specialized field of dentistry concerned about the treatment of improper bites caused by tooth irregularity, a disproportionate jaw relationship, or both.
Improper bites often become apparent between the ages of 6 to 12, when children start to shed their baby teeth. Orthodontic treatment usually starts between the ages of 8 and 14 to help teeth alignment. In adults, the treatment is prescribed to correct problems such as crooked or crowded teeth, overbites, or jaw-joint disorders. There are no age restrictions for fixing teeth alignment, as the biological process involved in moving teeth remains the same across the ages. However, it is observed that adult treatment usually takes longer than that of children.
In Dubai, a city obsessed with perfection, the use of Orthodontic treatment is extremely popular. In recent years the utilization of ceramic braces has encouraged more and more adults to take advantage of Orthodontic treatments for teeth alignment and beautification. The use of clear aligners, for correction of mild improper bites, has also gained popularity in Orthodontic circles. In fact, as far as Orthodontics in Dubai is concerned, the increased use of such treatments in recent years has paved the way for brighter smiles and happier faces in the city.
