Best Adult Orthodontics Treatment In Tirunelveli

It is never too late to achieve attractive and confident smiles. The number of adults choosing orthodontics is on the rise. Regardless of a person’s age, orthodontic treatment is usually a change for the better. The mechanics involved in the movement of teeth are essentially the same in adults as in children. Gaps between teeth, crowding, protruding front teeth and teeth in abnormal positions are problems that may be corrected in the adults by orthodontic treatment.

However, because an adult’s facial bones are no longer growing, certain conditions cannot be resolved with braces alone. Sometimes, inter disciplinary approach is required to obtain the correct result. The health of teeth, gums and supporting bone, as well as jaw relationships, are key factors in determining the prospects of improving one’s appearance through orthodontic treatment.

Surgical Orthodontics

Adults who have disproportionate growth of the jaw are often concerned about their unaesthetic facial appearance.  The correction involves surgery to align the upper and lower jaw. Prior to surgery the teeth in both the jaws have to be aligned and coordinated to facilitate the surgery.  Following surgery orthodontic treatment is essential to fine-tune the position of the teeth to enhance chewing efficiency. Thus It has 3 stages- Pre surgical Orthodontics, Surgery, Post surgical orthodontics.  This combined efforts results in better function and superior facial esthetics.

Who needs surgical orthodontics?

We will consider surgical orthodontic treatment for non-growing adult patients with improper bites and those with facial esthetic concerns. Jaw growth is usually completed by age 16 for girls and 18 for boys. All growth must be completed before jaw surgery can be performed. However the pre-surgical orthodontic treatment can begin one to two years prior to these ages.

Surgery is performed in the hospital with an oral surgeon, and can take several hours, depending on the amount and type of surgery needed. In lower jaw surgery, the jawbone behind the teeth is separated and the tooth-bearing portion is moved forward or backward, as needed. In upper jaw surgery, the jaw can be repositioned forward or backward, or the jaw can be raised or lowered.

When you have completed surgery, you should be able to return to your work within two weeks. After the necessary healing time (about 4-8 weeks), we “fine-tunes” your bite.

Visited Dr. Shiva after reading the reviews online. Was a little sceptical because my only point of reference was online reviews but in the end must say that the experience far exceeded the expectations!! Dr. Shiva is one who not just loves his profession but also makes u fall in love with the same. He corrected the cross-bite of my 11 year old with ease. The time Dr. Shiva spends in explaining the issue is commendable (a rarity in today's world wherein health-care has become commercial and time is money). The discussion/ explanation/ education was so thorough that my son himself completely knew of the line of treatment and the necessary care to be taken. Not just that, the doctor is also available online for follow up queries!! the most affable doctor I have ever met (this I say after coming from a family of doctors;-)).. the clinic is well appointed, has advanced equipment and located in a serene place..probably the best orthodontist in Tirunelveli region.. I wish him all the best and success.. hope Dr. Shiva keeps spreading smiles!!

I am going to Dr Sankars clinic for more then a year now for orthodontic treatment. I started my treatment in my native in the Netherlands. I was a bit reluctant to do so, but after meeting Dr Sankar for the first time I felt very confident. He takes you very serious as a patient. Does his job meticulous and keeps very good records. He is doing a more precise job then my Orthodontist in Netherlands was doing and having finished my treatment now finally I am very please with the result so I am very happy with the service and treatment provided by This Clinic and Dr Sankar. can recommend it to anyone looking for a treatment. the clinic is well organised and clean as well

Shakti Clinic has been my go to doctor in Tirunelveli. He is very professional and explains the need for every process. Helps one resolve dental issues from the root of the problem. Quite an authority in the field and in times where people are looking to make profits, he on the other hand doesn't take you through unnecessary procedures., until it's needed. He is inclined more towards service than profits. And I'm a happy client of his for two years now.
