Orthodontics (or dentofacial orthopedics) is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws. The field was established by such pioneering orthodontists, and the name "Orthodontics" is derived from the Greek orthos ("correct", "straight") and -odont ("tooth").

At Ideal Dental Clinic, we encourage everyone to get at least one check-up every year to consider whether such a procedure is needed or not. To schedule an appointment contact our clinic in New Cairo.

Orthodontics Q & A

What age is appropriate for orthodontics?

There's no set age for a child's first orthodontist visit — some kids go when they're 6, some kids go when they're 10, and some go while they're teens. Even adults can need orthodontic treatment. Many orthodontists say kids should see an orthodontist once their permanent teeth start coming in, around age 7.

Are braces good for teeth?

A dentist usually recommends braces to improve a patient's "orofacial" appearance. Through orthodontic treatment, problems like crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints are corrected. And braces aren't just for kids!

Can braces ruin your teeth?

Have a look in the mirror at your new braces. You need to pay special attention to cleaning your teeth everyday and to your diet. Permanent damage to tooth enamel can occur if the teeth and brackets are not kept clean.

  • Fixed braces, wich could be Metallic braces or Ceramic (invisible) braces.
