The branch of Orthodontics involves misalignment, positioning of teeth and jaws. In this treatment, teeth can be straightened and also can be moved to a better position. It leads to not only the better appearance but also the way the teeth bite together.

Everyone do not have beautiful teeth. It is highly probable that people with misaligned, crooked teeth will be self-conscious, feel embarrassed and possess low self-esteem.

In Smiline, we offer a wide range of orthodontic solutions to help achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

Studies have indicated that parents and children are interested in finding solutions for their common dental issues such as crowded teeth and overbite at an early age. They believe that this in turn helps in enhancing the child’s self-image, oral function and social life.


One should see an orthodontist if he/she is looking for a solution to one or more of the following problems:

Crowding – when they have more teeth than the normal total which results in misalignment of teeth.

Spacing – gaps and spaces are created due to inadequate tooth size and in case of few missing teeth.

Bite Problems – excessive vertical overlap of the upper and lower jaws can cause teeth to look unsightly which lead to an incorrect bite (overbite); Inadequate vertical overlap of upper and lower jaws may also cause incorrect bite (underbite).

When upper front teeth are forwardly placed and look unaesthetically

It is possible that these ‘prominent’ teeth may get damaged, but orthodontic treatment will assist you in moving them back to their ideal positions.

When the teeth are not meeting correctly, muscles of the jaw could get strained and results in jaw & joint problems as well as headaches in some cases.

With the orthodontic treatment, we reduce the strain and help you in improving the bite

Stainless braces are more traditional treatment option for correcting bites and crooked teeth.

They are the most common orthodontic treatment for children and teens.

Strong, stainless steel brackets, tiny rubber bands called "ligatures" or "o-rings" and wires make up these braces.

Stainless steel braces which are also called as train tracks have undergone lot of developments over the years and now they are visually appealing and very comfortable than earlier.

Advantages :

  • Patients are also offered a variety of choices to choose color of the ligatures.
  • They are strong and rarely break.
  • Stronger and more durable than ceramic braces.

Tooth coloured braces made of ceramic alloys that are made to match the color of your teeth. The brackets are made of ceramic or porcelain materials. Metallic alloys are used to make wires which deliver a constant, gentle force to move teeth.

Adults and teens have an inclination towards ceramic braces as they “blend in” with the teeth so that the braces are not noticeable.

Advantages :

  • Less noticeable when compared to the metal braces
  • Usually ceramic brackets are stain-resistant. They will not become discolored throughout the course of your treatment.
  • A preferred aesthetic option

Self-ligating braces which are discrete, comfortable and easy to keep clean. In this system the wires are held by brackets, therefore the usage of either elastics or metal ties are avoided. There is more freedom of movement and the need for tightening is eliminated.

Advantages :

  • Since elastics are not used in to hold the brackets in Self-ligating braces, friction will be less.
  • As the elastic ties attack and collect plaque, in their absences brushing and cleaning can be performed with ease.
  • Fewer adjustments due to light high-technology shape-memory wires.
  • Self-Ligating braces are also available in ceramic brackets.

What are Clear aligners and how do they function ?

Clear aligners are an advanced when compared to traditional braces that uses sequences of individual removable trays to move the teeth in desired position.

This treatment relies on 3-D computer imaging technology and uses a series of aligners made of clear, almost invisible plastic trays that fits snugly over teeth. Invisalign treatment plan includes a series of custom-made trays which will move the teeth from initial position to the final position. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

Child quickly gets adopted to sucking thumb /fingers as it provides a sense of security and comfortable feel in the absence of availability of mother.

It is normal for a child of 2-3 years but continuing the habit beyond 3 years of age or even after eruption of permanent teeth can cause improper growth of jaws, jaw musculature and dental alignment. Severity of maldevelopment either skeletal or dental depends on the frequency and intensity with which child sucks.

Treatment :

If all the methods such as putting a sock or mitten on the hand at night and applying bitter tasting substance on the hands fails then the use of fixed appliance therapy such as thumb crib or blue grass appliances are recommended.

This is a kind of habit that is difficult to notice, but has serious potential effects.. The reason it is of so much concern is that tongue thrusting can cause similar detrimental effects on the teeth and jaws in growing children that we see from thumb sucking.

  • Anterior or posterior open bite(gap between upper and lower teeth
  • Pushing out and up effect on upper teeth
  • Narrow high arched palate.

Treatment :

Generally, a child has to relearn the swallow pattern . Steps in treatment include the following :

  • Conscious learning of a new swallowing pattern by making the child aware of how "good" and "bad" swallows feel to the tongue and roof of the mouth, and having the child practice "good" swallows over and over.
  • Inducing conscious effort to swallow in correct pattern.
  • As a last choice, we may install something called a "HABIT BREAKING APPLIANCE" which makes it difficult for the patient to put their tongue near their teeth in the improper position. It gently catches the tongue and helps to position it in correct position.

Mouth Breathing Habit:

Chronic mouth breathing habit develops when ever child had any obstruction in the nasal passage. Obstruction can be of any type such as enlarged adenoids, blocked sinuses, septal deviations etc. it is one of the potential cause for the development of a long, thin face which is also called "Long Face Syndrome".

Treatment :

  • Habit intervention is done with the help of a removable device called "ORAL SCREEN"

Surgical orthodontics refers to the surgical repositioning in order to correct jaw deformities of the upper jaw, lower jaw or both the jaws.

Indications :

  • Smokers.
  • Small upper jaw or large lower jaw ( Skeletal Class III)
  • Large or normal upper jaw with small lower jaw (Skeletal Class II)
  • Deep bite in non-growing patients
  • Extremely vertical excess or deficiency in upper jaw or lower jaw
  • Skeletal asymmetry

Three possibilities of correction in case of severe malocclusion :

  • Growth modification
  • Orthodontic treatment or orthognathic surgery
  • In conjunction with orthodontics to establish proper jaw relationship.

Planning of orthognathic surgery :

  • Clinical examination
  • Socio- psychological evaluation
  • X-rays , Photographs, Cephalometric evaluation, Study model, Prediction tracing , Model surgery Procedure.

Various types of surgical procedures available at Smiline :

  • Anterio- posterior (back and forth) correction

    Maxillary surgery (upper jaw) – advanced & retraction

    Mandibular surgery (lower jaw) – Advanced & set back

  • Vertical correction

    Maxillary surgery & Mandibular surgery

  • Transverse correction

    Maxillary surgery & Mandibular surgery

  • Skeletal open bite correction
  • Genioplasty

Why to use a combined orthodontic and surgical approach?

Although larger proportion of the population will have a bite problem, the correction is required for only smaller fraction of the population with these problems using surgical procedures. Surgery is often necessary to correct the problems associated with size, shape and postion of a jaw bone. As surgeon alone can’t straighten or align the teeth, an orthodontic treatment is usually mixed with surgery while placing the teeth in the right positions within the jaws. Therefore an orthodontist and a surgeon always work closely together to achieve the best possible functional as well as aesthetic results.

Duration of the treatment

Type and severity of the problem will decide total duration of the treatment. The necessary dental treatment has to be undergone before the starting of pre-surgical orthodontics. This pre-surgical treatment, which may vary between nine and eighteen months, is often required. Factors such as age of the patient, severity of the problem, teeth movement and cooperation by the patient will have a final say on the actual duration for the treatment.

Once the surgery is done, to adjust the final position of the teeth as well as to retain the teeth in the desired final positions, a post-surgical treatment is also often recommended and practiced. This takes a time normally between six and twelve months. After this, there will be a retention and observation for duration of nearly three years to maintain the corrections performed.

What are the future implications if the surgical treatment is not done?

The existing problems could remain the same. But in some cases, these problems could become worse, resulting in abnormal wear of teeth as well as loss of bone support to the teeth. With time, as the stress is continued on the jaw joint and related muscles, facial pain and jaw-joint symptoms may be developed.

Two phase therapy :

Phase I therapy: This phase usually starts when all the permanent first molars and permanent incisor are erupted. A growth modifying device usually an expander, Myo-functional or orthopedic appliance is utilized.

After completion of phase I a "Maintainance" or "Resting Phase" with retainer is usually recommended, which continues till the second phase .

Phase II therapy : this phase usually starts when the last milk tooth is lost or when all the permanent teeth are erupted. Treatment may begin earlier if required

Two phase treatment allows the orthodontist to achieve results that couldn’t be achieved with single treatment. Putting off treatment can result in a need for more invasive treatments, such as extractions or surgery, later in life.

Invisalign and Invisible Aligners in Hyderabad

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is one of the most convenient methods to straighten teeth instead of using conventional metal braces. Modern dentistry has introduced the latest techniques and methods to treat misaligned teeth without any metal braces. One such option is called Invisalign Aligners – Invisible Braces, this Invisalign aligner is used for orthodontic treatment as a technique to move and properly align teeth for a beautiful smile.

Invisalign Treatment Process

The Invisalign treatment process made easy and affordable when you choose a Dental Clinic like Smiline. Here is what you can expect during the Invisalign treatment process:

Your dentist will choose to begin your custom treatment plan by taking a precise 3D digital image of your teeth. After your doctor analyses the image or impression, he/she will then provide a customized treatment plan to map out the exact movements of your teeth and estimate the length of your treatment plan. Based on the 3D image, a series of aligners are made for you wherein each aligner is slightly different from the previous one to set your teeth to move towards the desired position. You will need to wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your dentist. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign is the prime choice of people when teeth-straightening is required. It is a kind of orthodontic treatment that fixes teeth without the utilization of regular metal braces. Here are some advantages why one might wish to choose Invisalign over conventional metal braces:

  • Invisible Appearance

    Invisalign is virtually invisible. It means you can always smile with confidence, as compared to traditional metal braces.

  • Safe and Removable

    Invisalign aligners are completely removable and can be taken out of the mouth whenever needed. Traditional metal braces come with dietary restrictions due to their physical nature certain foods are difficult to eat and can cause the braces to come loose. Invisalign allows the freedom to choose one's diet because they are removable.

  • Comfortable

    Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic and fit tightly to the teeth, so they do not irritate the gums or surrounding tissues compared to metal braces.

  • Saves Time

    With Invisalign, you will be able to spend less time at the orthodontist or dental clinics as they only need to be maintained every six weeks on average. Other teeth straightening options can take much more time and many more visits.

  • Better Oral Health

    Invisalign aligners are removable and do not block any part of the teeth. When you are ready to brush and floss your teeth just remove the aligners, clean your teeth, then put them back in. Oral hygiene is much better than with traditional metal braces. A clean mouth is a healthy mouth. It is vital to have healthy teeth and gums while straightening your teeth then only you get the best possible smile at the end of treatment.
