Orthodontics is a specialised branch of dentistry that deals with the management and treatment of irregularities and abnormalities of teeth, jaws and face. It aims to produce a healthy bite, creating greater resistance to disease and improving your appearance. Some common appliances used in orthodontics are fixed metal braces, invisible braces and lingual braces. Retainers are an important part of orthodontic treatment since they enable your teeth to stay in proper position once the braces are removed.
Practising orthodontics requires professional training and proper skills in the application and control of corrective appliances or braces and designing to bring your teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and achieve facial balance.
Orthodontics makes it easy to clean your teeth, which means there is a nominal risk of tooth decay or gum disease, also called gingivitis. It will ensure that your teeth meet together properly and there isn’t much stress on the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. This will help relieve problems such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines and shoulder pain.
Undergoing an orthodontic treatment involves great commitment and the benefits of the treatment include:
The cost associated with an orthodontic treatment will vary depending on the severity of the problem, appointment requirements and experience of the orthodontist. There are certain techniques such as aligner systems or lingual braces that seem to be more expensive. Probable patients should ask for the necessary information about costs and anything related to the treatment from the dentist/orthodontist. Your orthodontist will be happy to discuss with you the cost before the treatment.
When a sudden toothache interrupted my London trip, I had the good fortune to be referred to Dr. Wahab Shakir.
He was exceptionally through, identified the problem(s), and provided me with an action plan (report and x-rays) to convey to my dentist back in the States. He also prescribed the really helpful medication I needed for my flight home.
He truly was a godsend, and I am most grateful!!
I have been a patient for the last year and I have always been satisfied with the treatments I received. The dentists, their assistants and the receptionist are friendly, informative and very professional.
The clinic is modern and well equipped.
I recommended this clinic to all my friends and few of them went there. They were extremely pleased- and I must say that I wasn’t surprised.
The kindest and most professional dentist I have seen in London. Not only the dentist, but also the other staff. They show honesty and understanding and they handled my emergency without any objections. I visited this practise for a cavity feeling. The dentist made it fun, and his work was truly professional! Highly recommended!
I have been in London for two years and have had to go to the dentist twice for quite important operations (a root canal treatment and an extraction).
The staff of the clinic is kind and efficient, I immediately felt in good hands.
Dr. Fabrizio Castellari is simply one of the best dentists I've ever had: serious empathic and able to work in total absence of pain.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist I have ever found. Thank you for everything.
