When is the best time to begin orthodontics?

Though at Sakti Dental & Orthodontics we can enhance a smile at any age, most orthodontic problems will have an ideal time to be corrected and this will depend on the type of problem and on growth and development of the jaw bone and the teeth. Beginning treatment at the optimal time will simplify treatment while ensuring the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense.

The guidelines put forward by American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) & Indian Orthodontic Society (IOS) recommends that all children should make a visit to an orthodontist by the age of seven or sooner if something is obviously wrong. Fortunately, many young patients don’t need anything more than observation while the permanent teeth are growing into place, however, some young patients may have jaw problems(either too small or too big) that requires or call for immediate attention.

Dr.Shivasankar can identify current or anticipated future dental problems and determine the best time for treatment. Any ongoing oral habits can also be evaluated at this time such as thumb sucking, mouth breathing, or finger sucking. Ideal period to begin active treatment for irregular teeth is between ages 10 to 14.

Please feel free to contact our office and schedule a complimentary orthodontic evaluation and gift a smile to your child.

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!!

Dental Care Patient from Netherlands

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.
