Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that centres around treating malocclusions, or misaligned teeth, and treating misaligned jaws.
Orthodontic treatments in Singapore help reposition patients’ teeth to become straighter and more aligned, resulting in improved oral health and a more beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatments also correct bite for better chewing and biting, and better function overall.
Orthodontists are specialist dentists who have undergone additional education and training in order to effectively identify, prevent and treat teeth and jaw misalignments. At PKWY Dental Specialist Practice, our orthodontists in Singapore are accredited and experienced to provide a full range of orthodontic treatments.
Orthodontic treatment can be given to anyone at any age, including older adults! Generally speaking, however, it is best to seek orthodontic treatment in the pre-teen to teenage years, in order to detect, monitor and treat one’s teeth as early as possible while the jaw and pattern of permanent teeth are still developing.
