Orthodontics has changed a lot in the last 20 years. As technology has improved, so too has the treatment. In the past, braces were one-size-fits-all, with each person getting the same basic appliances, regardless of comfort or use. Dentists used to just pull teeth to solve a problem, rather than use braces and aligners to move the teeth.
But now, patients are treated as individuals, who the dentists work with to create an individual treatment plan and make sure that all their needs and concerns are addressed. This might be the first way treatment is made more comfortable. Patients from Delta, Surrey, or anywhere else in the Lower Mainland are taken care of with the best, personal care. Our dentists and treatment coordinators discuss treatments and strategies, getting to know our patients and making sure all questions are answered.
Better ways of seeing what we’re working with have made orthodontics better as well. At Maduke Bulat, we take a 3D visual scan of the patient’s mouth. We’re not taking an x-ray; we’re actually making a three dimensional computer model of the teeth and jaw so that we can have the best possible idea of what’s there. The more information we have, the better was can treat the problem.
Comfort in the offices is important as well. A trip to a dentist’s office can be stressful. A comfortable office that doesn’t feel like an office helps patients relax and, dare we say, enjoy their trip. Some people love the free coffee, others the gifts for maintaining their braces, and others the flat screen TVs. But no matter what helps you enjoy your trip, the less stress in the visit, the better.
And finally, the skill of the dentists and dental team makes orthodontic treatment the most comfortable. When you know that your orthodontists are some of the best in Surrey, when their skill is making your appliances feel better in your mouth, you will feel much more comfortable.
So if you’re feeling a little uncomfortable about your smile, come see us at Maduke Bulat and we’ll make sure you’re as comfortable as can be.
