I consulted Dr Ratnadeep Patil when I was suffering from a condition (constant bilateral eye pain)related to TemporoMandicular joint ) which couldn't get identified and treated by other doctors. I had made visits to multiple specialists across the country. I was severely depressed at that time. I must confess that it was the first time I got hope that I could live a normal and healthier life. Dr Ratnadeep Patil is a highly knowledgeable and confident doctor who also posses the key qualities of a doctor i.e. patience, understanding patient's problem, providing comfort to the patient and giving ample time to him/her. For the treatment of this condition, I had made multiple visits to the doctor and found him to be same as he was during the first visit. Slowly, my condition started improving and now I can say that I do not have any eye pain from past 6 months. My life has changed now. I would also like to acknowledge that not only Dr Patil but all staff members of his clinic are highly experienced and more importantly, are good human beings.
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)
