Few Treatment Modalities We Provide Under Orthodontics

At Dr. Laud’s Clinic, we are equipped with the latest technology, expert practitioners and the facilities to be able to bring this treatment to you. There can be many reasons why children and adults alike can have alignment issues, however, with Orthodontics we are capable for correctional work on any such concerns.

Pre-teen treatment (AGE 8 onwards)

One of the most commonly seen habits in children that adversely impacts jaw structure and teeth alignment is thumb sucking. In the growing up years if a child persists with this habit, it causes a significant misalignment of their teeth. However, with the Orthodontic treatment this problem can be corrected for the child.


A permanent solution to teeth alignment issues has been the usage of braces. Orthodontic treatments can be carried out with a removable brace or fixed braces. A removable brace is a simple plate which can be taken out to be cleaned up. It has fine wires and springs attached that move the teeth using gentle pressure. Whereas, a fixed brace is used when the teeth need to be guided more accurately. These have brackets and bands which are temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and allows the teeth to be moved. Since this can’t be taken out by the patient, it is called a fixed appliance. Fixed braces are not always made up of metal. Other materials such as plastics or ceramic can also be used, especially for adults.

Metal Braces

These are the most common type of braces. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. With the evolution of time, research and technology, braces are no longer significant and bulky somewhat; now they are smaller, more comfortable and aesthetically acceptable.

Ceramic Braces

This is a relatively newer development in Orthodontics wherein due to the ceramic base, these braces are less visible and more comfortable.

Power Self Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces use little metal doors to hold the wires instead of elastic ties. Some of the primary advantages of self-ligating braces are that it can speed up the first stage of Orthodontics. Add to that since the metal doors are smaller than the ties, they can be easier to clean in some cases.

Adult Patient Treatment Options

Invisible Braces

These work just like regular braces, except no one, will see them. These are small, smooth and will seamlessly fit onto the back of your teeth.

Clear Aligners- Invisalign

The Invisalign system is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to move the teeth gradually. This system is available to adult patients with specific orthodontic bite problems.
