WHY DO I NEED ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?

 

Orthodontic treatment is for anyone wishing to improve the alignment of their teeth for a beautiful smile. We have highlighted some common reasons why smile aesthetics may be affected in our website.

 

Treatment may also be recommended for dental health implications instead of aesthetics. For example, an impacted tooth may dissolve the root or an adjacent tooth, or a severe overbite may lead to permanent trauma to the gums.

 

To help you understand how orthodontic treatment can benefit you or your family members, simply book in for a consultation and see the projected outcome of your teeth with our various treatment options.

HOW MUCH WILL MY TREATMENT COST? / HOW LONG WILL MY TREATMENT TAKE?

 

Every client is unique with different orthodontic needs and preferences. Therefore, determining the cost and duration of orthodontic treatment will require an individual appraisal with a check-up and consultation.

 

We ensure our clients are informed of all the details such as treatment options, duration, and the cost of treatment following a comprehensive appraisal with 3D facial and dental scans, radiograph(s), and photographs. Should you wish to keep your own 3D-printed facial portrait or teeth, they are made available upon request.

DO I NEED A REFERRAL TO SEE AN ORTHODONTIST?

 

No. Anyone can book an appointment with an orthodontist directly, and there are no extra benefits from being referred.

CAN I GET TREATED WITH INVISIBLE OPTIONS LIKE INVISALIGN OR INCOGNITO?

 

All our treatment options will be available to each of our clients. Hence this is ultimately up to you after a full discussion on the pros and cons of each option.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I BRING MY CHILD IN FOR AN ASSESSMENT?

 

It is recommended that you bring your children in for an assessment when all the adult teeth are about to come through. This is typically around the age of 11 - 12.

 

In some cases, treatment may need to be started as early as age 7. These are usually for cases when early intervention could eliminate the future need for a comprehensive orthodontic treatment or significantly reduce its complexity.

DO I NEED TEETH EXTRACTIONS?

 

It is possible to treat most clients without the need for any extractions. However, there may be cases where teeth extractions will assist in attaining better aesthetics and dental health.

 

For clients that are likely to attain additional benefits via extraction, we provide visual treatment predictions and information to help you understand these benefits so that you can make a fully informed decision.
