Can Orthodontics in Dubai change your looks

Orthodontics in Dubai can be a big part of a person’s life. For instance a person may need to wear braces at some point in their lives.

In the past only kid’s were famous for wearing braces. But in recent times it has been frequented mostly by adults and young adults due to the changes in appearance of orthodontic appliances and speed of movement. You are never too old to get braces says a Dental Surgeon in Dubai.

There are several types of orthodontic treatment that are available today with your local Dentist in Dubai to make them as esthetic as possible with shorter treatment time. While the teeth are being cared for, they may have a significant effect on the mouth, lips, chin and cheeks. Most patients who complete an orthodontic treatment, will notice a minor change in their face and expressions. These patients may see a significant change when they smile fully, showing off the new symmetry of their smile.
Here is a look at some procedure that has a dramatic effect on your facial appearance,

  • Overbite changes – Before tooth movement, an overbite causes the upper lip to protrude. In some patient’s the upper lip is so far advanced that the lips do not fully cover and close the mouth. After movement, the area from nose below right up to the chin flattens and the appearance is much softer than before.
  • Under bite Changes – Before tooth movement, an under bite causes the chin to protrude and lower lip to retrude, giving you a moon shaped profile. After movement, the face loses much of the concavity and flattens and softens the patient’s features,  bringing the lips together more harmoniously. Under bite correction may not require surgical assistance in some instances.
  • Open bite correction – Before tooth movement the mouth and lips looks overstretched. After movement, the middle of the face looks more relaxed and the lips come together. In certain instances, severe open bite may require surgery to be fully corrected.
  • Jaw extension – Certain patients are born with too little space in one or both arches causing the face to be narrow and cheeks to look a bit hollow. If space needs to be opened, a device is custom fabricated called an expander. The expander can either be made for the top or the bottom. Expanders are used very often in children, but when required they can also be used in adults as well, together with surgery. The expansion is usually done in very small increments and will  go unnoticed by others. The end result will be a more  symmetrical smile and wider midface.

Dental Treatment in Dubai can use Orthodontic treatment to change a person’s appearance in many dramatic ways. Some of these dramatic changes include, a much more fuller smile, straighter teeth, and balancing out the face proportionately.  The changes, eventhough it has a dramatic effect, are very slight unless there is surgery involved.  When a person’s teeth are in proper alignment, their profile too will be more in line with the rest of the facial appearance giving them a stunning new look.
