Orthodontics

Orthodontist - Precision Dental Clinic Downtown Dubai

At Precision Dental Clinic we offer “Holistic orthodontics” for children and adults. This includes a thorough examination of the face, teeth, jaws and jaw joints to develop an individualized treatment plan for every patient.

Orthodontic treatment can straighten your teeth, improve your smile and correct your bite. But best of all, it can improve your confidence and self esteem!

Dr Punit, our specialist orthodontist, has many years experience and advanced education in this field to enable him to offer a solution for every situation and use the latest technology in his field.

We treat to the time tested objectives of Orthodontics –
Esthetics, Function and Stability.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have their first orthodontic consultation at age 7.  At this age any developing jaw and teeth alignment problems can be identified and treatment can be initiated if needed.

For many reasons, the teenage years are the best years for orthodontic treatment. We have a number of different options for treating teenagers, including:

  • Metal braces with and without colours
  • Ceramic braces
  • Invisalign Teen

An increasing number of adults are opting for braces nowadays. And for good reason! With the cosmetic options available, adults can get the smile they always wanted without anyone knowing!

Adults who need tooth replacement or other dental treatment, or suffer from gum issues may sometimes also benefit from a short course of orthodontics (known as adjunctive orthodontics), which can improve the quality of the dental treatment, and longevity of their teeth.

At Precision Dental Clinic we offer the following orthodontic solutions:

It is not uncommon for people who need tooth replacement or gum treatment, to require some form of minor orthodontic treatment. Getting the teeth in the correct position is important for the success and longevity of these treatments.

Sometimes, a short course of orthodontic treatment (upto 6 months) can be beneficial in treating such problems.

ortognatic-surgery

Benefits of orthognatic surgery include:

  • Complete correction of jaw deformities
  • Improved jaw function
  • Better facial esthetics

Improved airway patency (helps correct snoring)

Temporo mandibular joint treatment

Temporo-mandibular Joint Treatment

TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) pain, or TMD (Temporo-mandibular dysfunction) involves many elements of the jaws, including teeth, muscles, jaw bones and jaw joints.  Dr. Punit has been trained in the Roth-Williams, Functional and Cosmetic Excellence (FACE) philosophies of Orthodontic treatment and functional occlusion, which places a lot of importance on the harmony of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint, or jaw joint), jaw muscles and well aligned teeth.

As part of our “Holistic Orthodontics “approach, we manage TMJ pain treatment in a multi-stage process, starting with pain relief, and progressing to diagnosing and treating the dental problems that cause the TMJ.

If you suffer from Jaw pain, facial muscle pain, clenching or night grinding, neck or shoulder pain, frequent headache, do get in touch with us to book an appointment as it might be the sign of a bad bite that can lead to severe TMJ problems.h.
