Can Orthodontics in Dubai change your looks

Orthodontics in Dubai can be a big part of a person’s life. For instance a person may need to wear braces at some point in their lives.

In the past only kid’s were famous for wearing braces. But in recent times it has been frequented mostly by adults and young adults due to the changes in appearance of orthodontic appliances and speed of movement. You are never too old to get braces says a Dental Surgeon in Dubai.

There are several types of orthodontic treatment that are available today with your local Dentist in Dubai to make them as esthetic as possible with shorter treatment time. While the teeth are being cared for, they may have a significant effect on the mouth, lips, chin and cheeks. Most patients who complete an orthodontic treatment, will notice a minor change in their face and expressions. These patients may see a significant change when they smile fully, showing off the new symmetry of their smile.
Here is a look at some procedure that has a dramatic effect on your facial appearance,

  • Overbite changes – Before tooth movement, an overbite causes the upper lip to protrude. In some patient’s the upper lip is so far advanced that the lips do not fully cover and close the mouth. After movement, the area from nose below right up to the chin flattens and the appearance is much softer than before.
  • Under bite Changes – Before tooth movement, an under bite causes the chin to protrude and lower lip to retrude, giving you a moon shaped profile. After movement, the face loses much of the concavity and flattens and softens the patient’s features,  bringing the lips together more harmoniously. Under bite correction may not require surgical assistance in some instances.
  • Open bite correction – Before tooth movement the mouth and lips looks overstretched. After movement, the middle of the face looks more relaxed and the lips come together. In certain instances, severe open bite may require surgery to be fully corrected.
  • Jaw extension – Certain patients are born with too little space in one or both arches causing the face to be narrow and cheeks to look a bit hollow. If space needs to be opened, a device is custom fabricated called an expander. The expander can either be made for the top or the bottom. Expanders are used very often in children, but when required they can also be used in adults as well, together with surgery. The expansion is usually done in very small increments and will  go unnoticed by others. The end result will be a more  symmetrical smile and wider midface.

Dental Treatment in Dubai can use Orthodontic treatment to change a person’s appearance in many dramatic ways. Some of these dramatic changes include, a much more fuller smile, straighter teeth, and balancing out the face proportionately.  The changes, eventhough it has a dramatic effect, are very slight unless there is surgery involved.  When a person’s teeth are in proper alignment, their profile too will be more in line with the rest of the facial appearance giving them a stunning new look.





  • 覆咬合改变- 牙齿移动前,覆咬合导致上嘴唇突出。一些病人的上嘴唇前进得如此之远,以致于嘴唇没有完全覆盖和合闭嘴。移动之后,从鼻子向下到到下巴的区域平化,外观比之前更软。
  • 反颌改变 – 牙齿移动前,反颌导致下巴突出,下嘴唇后移,给您月亮形状的轮廓。移动之后,脸失去了很多凹度,平化和软化病人的特色,让嘴唇在一起更和谐。在一些情况下反颌可能不需要外科支持。
  • 开牙合矫正– 牙齿移动前,嘴和嘴唇看起来过分伸展。移动之后,脸的中部看起来更放松,嘴唇在一起。在某些情况下,严重的开牙合可能需要外科手术,以得到完全矫正。
  • 颌延伸 – 某些病人天生就一个或两个牙弓空间太小,导致脸狭窄,脸颊看起来有点空。如果需要打开空间,一个设备被定制,称为扩张器。扩张器可以为顶部或底部制造。扩张器在儿童中经常被使用,但是需要时,它们也可以在成人中被使用,与外科手术一起。扩张通常以很小的增量进行,其他人不会注意到。结果是更匀称的微笑和更宽的中面部。
