Dear Dr Ratnadeep Patil, My congratulations to you for your dedication and professional capability in establishing an institution like Smile Care. Your personality seems to infuse the place as I remember all the warm and smiling faces that always welcomed me during my numerous visits. The quality of your work and your team's work was excellent and caring. After many years my bite is normal. My heartfelt thanks to you and Dr.Dimple who looked after me with great care and skill. And a special thanks for the gratis enamel on my two front teeth.
Orthodontics is that branch of dentistry well known for the use of braces to straighten crooked teeth. However, Orthodontics has much more to offer than just that.
It actually is the art and science of studying the dental and facial aspects of a person at various ages and carrying out necessary treatment via specifically designed appliances for desired changes in jaw bone position and shape and to guide the jaw growth in the desired direction (Myofunctional Orthodontics ), monitoring the eruption pattern of permanent teeth and strategically planning extraction of milk teeth(Interceptive Orthodontics) or providing treatment options to patients after they have passed their growing age(Adult Orthodontics-Lingual Orthodontics and Ceramic braces)
In special cases where jaw discrepancies are due to the existing jaw sizes, corrective jaw surgeries (Orthopedic surgeries) could be required in conjunction with braces or other restorative procedures. Such surgeries show a dramatic change in the appearance of the patient.
The use of custom made, snap on, removable almost invisible aligners- Invisalign is the most recent technology advancement used for straightening crooked teeth. This branch also looks at providing special protective appliances for contact sports (Ortho guards)
