Orthodon­tics with or­tho­don­tists

Central Leader - - News -

Orthodon­tics is a spe­cialised branch of den­tistry ded­i­cated to straight­en­ing crooked teeth and jaws. It of­fers many ben­e­fits, in­clud­ing health­ier teeth and gums, im­proved ap­pear­ance, and the greater con­fi­dence that comes with hav­ing an at­trac­tive smile.

Dr Prashant Zaveri is a highly skilled and ex­pe­ri­enced or­tho­don­tist who has helped many peo­ple to im­prove their ap­pear­ance and den­tal health through or­thodon­tic treat­ment.

Orthodon­tics is gen­er­ally con­sid­ered a treat­ment for chil­dren and ado­les­cents. Dr Zaveri says there is no age limit for or­thodon­tic treat­ment, as the bi­o­log­i­cal process to move teeth is the same, and he has treated many adult pa­tients suc­cess­fully. Mod­ern tech­niques al­low the straight­en­ing of teeth without braces in some cases.

The or­thodon­tic treat­ment process be­gins with a detailed anal­y­sis of the fa­cial struc­tures with the help of x-rays of the head and face, mod­els of the teeth and pho­to­graphs. Dr Zaveri can then de­vise treat­ment op­tions which take into ac­count the pa­tient’s needs and bud­get.

In or­der to achieve the best or­thodon­tic re­sults, Dr Zaveri em­pha­sises the im­por­tance of healthy teeth and gums. His vast ex­pe­ri­ence in pe­ri­odon­tics, a spe­cialty ded­i­cated to main­tain­ing healthy gums and the treat­ment of gum dis­ease, pro­vides a unique and valu­able fea­ture in his treat­ment tech­niques.

Den­tists have to pur­sue three years of fur­ther post-grad­u­ate stud­ies to be­come a spe­cial­ist or­tho­don­tist. Dr Zaveri at­tained a mas­ters de­gree in orthodon­tics and in pe­ri­odon­tics from the Uni­ver­sity of Mum­bai. He was the first per­son to achieve this dis­tinc­tion of dou­ble mas­ters de­grees at the uni­ver­sity’s den­tal fac­ulty. He has com­pleted his spe­cial­ist regis­tra­tion in orthodon­tics in New Zealand and has been in pri­vate prac­tice for the past 12 years in Auck­land.

Dr Zaveri’s clinic is lo­cated on the ground floor of Build­ing C of As­cot Of­fice Park, Green­lane, near As­cot Hospi­tal. This new fa­cil­ity is fit­ted with state-of-the-art equip­ment sup­ported with pro­ce­dures fo­cused on pa­tient safety in­clud­ing the high­est stan­dards of ster­il­i­sa­tion tech­niques and low dose dig­i­tal xray sys­tems.

You are wel­come at the clinic with or without a re­fer­ral from your den­tist. Phone Brenda on 529 2592 for a prompt ap­point­ment.
