What is an Orthodontist?

Orthodontists are dental professionals who work to ensure your teeth and jawlines stay in alignment. 

They use their expertise in orthopedics (the branch of medicine that deals with bone health) as well as dentistry for treatment options like braces or retainers which can help you maintain a healthy smile!

 

Misaligned teeth can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. The bacteria that gather between your overlapping molars will cause hotspots for cavities, discolorations or even decay!

 

Misaligned teeth can also influence your bite, causing issues with speaking, eating, and chewing. Jaw tightness and pain may result as a result of this. Special orthodontic devices, such as braces or retainers, are used by an  orthodontist to address these difficulties.

How do I know if I need an Orthodontist?

Bite problems make it more likely you’ll have cavities and gum disease. Crowded or crooked teeth are harder to clean. Food particles and plaque can become trapped, leading to tooth decay. Over time, you could lose teeth because of advanced gum disease. 

 

 

An improper bite also can interfere with how your teeth work, including your ability to chew. A problem with chewing may cause the surfaces of your teeth to wear down. 

 

 

This puts extra stress on the bones that support your teeth. It can also increase your risk of gum disease and lead to problems with your jaw. If your jaw is misaligned, you could develop.

 

 

Headaches and feel muscle tension as well as face or neck pain.

 

 

Crossbite: One or more of your top teeth don’t line up properly with your bottom teeth.

 

 

Open bite: Your top and bottom front teeth don’t meet as they should.

 

 

Overbite: Your top front teeth cover too much of your bottom front teeth.

 

 

Overjet: Your top front teeth stick out.

 

 

Underbite: Your top teeth sit behind your bottom teeth rather than in front of them.

How does Orthodontics work?

Braces are put in place by an arch-wire that puts significant pressure on your teeth, while many of the other parts work to keep them there. Protecting you from damage is a periodontal membrane (aka “gum layer”), which covers most of our lower half!

 

Clear aligners are a great way to straighten out crooked teeth. OptiSmile is a platinum level Invisalign provider making our advanced dental practice the number 1 choice for aligning teeth and achieving your smile goals no matter how complex your orthodontic requirements are.

 

11 million smiles all over the world have been aligned and straightened beautifully by Invisalign. Our patients generally see results in as little 4-months making this level of Orthodontic treatment the first choice when it comes to a stylish, comfortable and predictable method to achieve the results you need.

Invisalign Orthodontic Braces

“The most professional service and work you could ever ask for. The team literally went out of their way to make sure that I was looked after and kept me up to date on everything I needed to know.”

Does Orthodontics Hurt?

Braces don’t hurt! 

 

When patients are considering whether to pursue an orthodontic treatment solution to their concerns, they often want to know how painful orthodontics will be. Some people have heard horror stories about the pain associated with braces, but these days, that really shouldn’t be the case. Most of those stories come from the days of old fashioned braces with thick wires and high forces being used. 

 

So there’s no reason to be anxious about your placement appointment. You may experience some mild discomfort with metal braces after the wire is engaged, but this usually goes away within a week and only lasts for one day at most with treatment from our expert orthodontists who are trained in getting you comfortable as soon possible so that life can go back to normal again once these braces have been put on properly by an experienced specialist.

 

When using genuine Invisalign there is little to no pressure felt in the very early stages as you get used to feeling the aligner within your mouth. When compared to traditional metal braces the differences in pain and pressure felt is vast and our patients love the natural feeling of Invisalign compared to “train tracks” within the mouth that also have the tendency to nick and cut the lips from time to time.

What`s Included In A Orthodontic Makeover?

Teeth Straightening

OptiSmile is proud to be Cape Town`s 1st platinum level Genuine Invisalign provider. Dr. Harris Smeyatsky is one of the most skilled Orthodontists in the world with Invisalign being his number 1 method for straightening teeth predictably and accurately.

Tooth Implants

Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums, in order to provide bone-like support for the replacement teeth that will be placed onto it. We use the highest quality dental implants.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a cosmetic technique in which composite resin is shaped and moulded on your teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, whiter smile. It can be used as a cosmetic solution to chipped teeth and gapped teeth.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring shapes your gums to fit your teeth structure. This results in a less gummy smile. If your gums seem too big for your smile, or they protrude awkwardly, a gum contour may be a part of your smile makeover.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is the process of lightening the color of human teeth. Whitening is often desirable when teeth become yellowed over time for a number of reasons, and can be achieved by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic color of the tooth enamel.
