What Are Braces?
Braces are dental appliances that correct problems with your teeth such as crowding, crooked teeth, and out-of-alignment teeth. Braces are commonly worn by teenagers, but they can also be worn by adults. Braces gradually straighten and align your teeth so that you have a normal bite as you wear them. Some people wear braces to straighten their teeth.
While many general dentists can perform basic tooth alignment and treat other dental problems, orthodontists specialize in teeth straightening. After dental school, a dentist studies and trains as an orthodontist for two to three years. Dr. Jaydev MDS, MFD RCSI (UK), MFDS RCPS (UK) is a dental specialist who specializes in teeth straightening, bite correction and jaw disorders.
Our orthodontist will ask you health-related questions, perform a clinical examination, digitally scan your teeth, photograph your face and teeth, and arrange mouth and head X-rays. We'll devise a treatment based on this information.
