Child Dental Benefit Scheme

Treatment Options

Preventive Orthodontics

A malocclusion/malrelation of teeth and jaws that is about to develop is diagnosed and treated. Habits such as thumb sucking, digit sucking, mouth breathing and tongue thrusting that could lead to malrelation of teeth and jaws if left untreated are dealt with early. Space maintainers are placed following early loss of baby teeth to allow sufficient space for the permanent teeth to come through.

Interceptive Orthodontics

A malocclusion of teeth and jaws that has begun to manifest is intercepted and treated. Growth is redirected in a more favourable direction and teeth are aligned to match the face and jaws.

Corrective Orthodontics

Correction of a malocclusion, which has already occurred, is treated by Orthodontics only, or a combination of Orthodontics and orthognathic surgery (surgery of the jaws and face).

Adult Orthodontics

Dr Anand has extensive experience in treating adults with malrelation of their teeth. Adults are a bit different than children in that more care should be taken in the pre-treatment assessment in determining the quality of bone support for Orthodontic treatment. You would be given the exact picture at your first few visits and great care would be taken even during active treatment in maintaining the quality of your gum and bone support.

Surgical Orthodontics

A few patients fall into a category where Braces alone are not sufficient to correct the malrelation of your teeth. This is because the problem lies in the alignment of the jaws rather than the teeth.  In such cases Dr Anand would explain the whole treatment plan with you including showing you videos on surgical procedures which would help line up your jaws. A period of braces before and after the surgery would be necessary. You would be under Dr Anand’s care during the whole treatment. The surgical procedure to line up your jaws would be done by an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Treatment

OSA can significantly affect a person’s quality of sleep and life.

Symptoms such as:

  1. Snoring and periods of cessation of breathing during sleep (usually noticed by the partner)
  2. Daytime sleepiness
  3. Low energy levels when awake

OSA is a complex condition which would require comprehensive care involving many clinicians. At your initial consult appointment, a detailed plan would be explained. A sleep study would then be recommended to determine the extent of apnoea.
