Braces, also known as orthodontic appliances are used to align, straighten or guide the teeth to the corrected positions. Braces should be used for people who have the following teeth condition or issue:

  • Overbite
  • Openbite
  • Underbite
  • Deepbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Jaw problem
  • Over crowded teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

There are several types of braces which are:

  • Metal braces (Conventional / Self-ligating)

Metal braces consist of brackets and wires that are placed on your teeth. The brackets are joined to each other with a thin arch wire that puts pressure on the teeth that cause them to move slowly into the correct position.

  • Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are the one with clear bracket but the shape and size same as metal braces.

  • Lingual braces

Lingual braces are heavy braces which placed behind the teeth.

  • Clear aligners

Clear aligner is made with clear plastic that do not required any bracket and wire. They remain in the mouth for 20 to 22 hours per day, only removed for meals and cleaning.

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
