One size never fits all in orthodontic treatment

Just as every personality is individual and every face is unique, so is every smile. Importantly, the orthodontic treatment required to enhance and perfect that smile will also be specific to an individual. The upshot is one size will never fit all when it comes to orthodontics, which is why we take a customised approach.

Here’s an insight into how orthodontics is all about the individual and achieving the best result specifically for them.

Individual assessment

Specialist orthodontists see a number of common issues arising when it comes to teeth position and jaw misalignment. However, despite similar causes, every individual’s experience of them is unique. Some people might have a combination of factors affecting their bite, others, might have only one.

The art lies in attaining an accurate insight into current issues and creating an individual plan to remedy them. At Norwest Orthodontics we do this by harnessing the power of the best available diagnostics and imaging technology. This is then combined with the industry-recognised skill of our staff including registered specialist orthodontist Dr Shimanto Purkayastha.

For example, we utilise state-of-the-art technology such as intra-oral iTero scanners which allow us to capture an extremely accurate digital replica of any person’s teeth within minutes.

Dr Purkayastha then uses this data to customise bracket placement which is then transferred to 3D printed trays. This innovative method of appliance design allows optimal bracket positioning and end of treatment tooth position to provide the best possible function and aesthetics.

Individual orthodontic treatment

No two people will ever share exactly the same teeth position and bite, which means no two people should share exactly the same treatment plan.

At Norwest Orthodontics, we believe that orthodontic treatment for each individual patient requires a specific and customised treatment plan as well as customised appliances.

Our primary aim is to ensure you walk away with a great smile that lasts a lifetime, but in creating that, we also want to ensure the treatment process works for you.

We not only look at the best orthodontic methods and appliances available but consider your lifestyle, and what treatments may best suit, such as Invisalign or Damon braces. We consider the timeframe in which you would like your orthodontic treatment undertaken, and we factor in your budget.

Then we devise a customised plan that not only achieves the best orthodontic results but meets your personal requirements as well.

A great example of this is our Insignia Smile Design Lab. This computerised system allows us to combine digital treatment planning with specially made brackets and wires tailored to your specific treatment needs.

Insignia ensures each aspect of treatment is precisely calculated to affect tooth movement in the most optimal way, resulting in fewer office visits and exceptional comfort. And because Insignia treatment is 100 per cent personalised, patients often see a reduction in the amount of time they would ordinarily wear braces.

In short, unlike off-the-shelf braces and wires, an Insignia treatment plan creates a layer of meticulous detail that provides fast, accurate, and predictable results.
