What is growth modification?

Developing problems in the growth of the jaws (either too small or too Big) , affecting an imbalance in the relationship of the jaws and rest of the face. This jaw bone problem goes unnoticed in young age group. Parents are also not aware of this problem. It requires an active intervention.

At SAKTI Dental & Orthodontic Clinic, We can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth. If there are obvious problems which exist that could be intercepted or prevented from getting worse. Dr. Shivasankar may advise you to have your child undergo a First phase treatment. There are some special procedures used apart from braces to either restrict the excessive growth of the jaws or stimulate the under grown jaws. These techniques are useful only during early active growing periods, just before the patients attain puberty. There exist special appliances such as Bionators, Frankles  Appliances, Twin Blocks, Face Masks, Rapid Maxillary Expansion for this purpose

In simple term it means changing the size, shape, and relationship of the bones of the face and jaws. Extra oral appliances such as headgear, face mask and chin cup to stimulate or restrict jaw growth. The point to be kept in mind is that it can be employed only if patient is treated at growing age, viz. 8-13 years average. Hence we work on reconstructing the entire face rather than focusing exclusively on teeth.

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.
