Orthodontics or Braces is the science in dentistry that deals with the straightening of crooked teeth. It treats any type of malocclusion that can damage the structure, function and the appearance of teeth and jaws.
What causes misaligned teeth?
Malocclusion or crooked teeth can be an inherited condition, meaning it may be passed from one generation to other.
Malocclusion is also caused because of the issues with the size and shape of the jaw or teeth. One of the common causes of crooked teeth is too much or too little space in the jaw. If a child has small jaw, the teeth may grow in crooked or crowded manner. If the jaw is too big and there is much space in the jaw, the teeth may have gaps in between or drift out of place.
There are few other habits or conditions that may change the shape and structure of the jaw. These include:
Use of a pacifier
Prolonged bottle feeding
Injuries resulting misalignment of the jaw
Tumors in the mouth or jaw
Poor dental care i.e. improper fitting of crowns, or braces
One should get a check-up done for a child at the age of 6-8 years to ensure that his/her teeth will erupt in the desired manner.There are many simple techniques that can be used to avoid crooked teeth if corrective measures are taken in early stages. This is known as preventive orthodontics.
Age group between 10 -14 is ideal to get teeth straightened, as the Best Orthodontics in Pune can take advantage of the growing age to solve many complex problems.
One of the best things about DR. Pharande,s orthodontic treatment is that you have the option to customise the colour of your braces – so you can make them stand out or blend in depending on your mood.
Your brace consists of small metal brackets, which are attached to your teeth for the duration of your treatment. These brackets are moved using a thin wire, which is held in place using tiny elastic bands, also known as ligatures.
These bands come in an array of different and exciting colours – from subtle ‘clear’ and ‘pearl’ to statement colours such as ‘fire red’ and ‘bubble gum’. You can even choose to combine two different colours for a bespoke look and maximum impact!
Every time we adjust your brace – approximately every 6–8 weeks – your orthodontist or therapist will change your elastic bands, giving you the opportunity to change your colour scheme.
Some patients prefer to keep things inconspicuous and opt for ‘clear’, ‘pearl’ or ‘tooth’ coloured bands, while others unleash their creativity. Just remember that you’ll be wearing your chosen colours for around two months, so choose wisely.
Do light colours stain?
While lighter colours such as ’white’ and ‘clear’ are less obtrusive they can be more prone to staining, for example following a curry. So if you’re a fan of colourful foods you may want to choose something slightly darker. ‘Grey’ or ‘silver’ can be good choices if you’d like something discreet and stain proof as they’ll blend in well with your metal brackets.
Some patients also choose to avoid colours that may be mistaken for bits of food – for example green. Yellow is also relatively unpopular for obvious reasons!
Our advice: have some fun and get creative! Don’t let your braces hold you back or stop you showing off a confident smile.
Braces are the traditional type of orthodontic dental appliance for straightening your teeth and improving your bite. Braces are actually a combination of brackets and wires that work together to straighten your teeth and align your bite. Your orthodontist adheres the brackets to your teeth and then feeds a special type of wire through each bracket. Over time, the tension in the wire shifts your teeth into the proper position. As your teeth move, the wires are adjusted or “tightened” during your follow-up appointments to keep a constant pressure on your teeth.
Are Braces Right for Me?
Our experienced orthodontists may recommend braces to correct your poor bite. While braces are most often used for treatment during childhood or the teenage years, more adults are receiving orthodontic braces to correct problems with their bites. Some of the most common oral health issues that may require braces are the following:
Crowded, misaligned, or crooked teeth Relatively large spaces or gaps between your teeth An overbite or underbite A bite that is open or closed
During your consultation appointment, your orthodontist examines your teeth to determine if you have any of these conditions that may benefit from orthodontic braces.

Dental Implants are artificial dental roots that provide a permanent base for solids, replacement teeth. Compared to dental prostheses, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular long-term solution and effective for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Because they integrate, feel and function as natural teeth, dental implants quickly become the new standard in replacement of teeth.

What makes dental implants comfortably and safely? Dr. Pharande’s Orthodontic & Dental Clinic Doctor use a medical grade titanium implant assembly that has effectively fused over time to the life of jaw bone cells. This union forms a strong and durable anchor point for your new teeth, which means there is no skid or any other movement (which can sometimes happen with dentures). There is also no harm in eating with dental implants, no need to repair them regularly and do not have to worry about smiling freely and openly.
Dental implants usually have three parts: 1) The implant: A screw that serves as a base for your new teeth. This is what is permanently attached to your jaw. 2) The abutment: A permanent but removable from your doctor, connectors, supports and holds one or more teeth. 3) The crown: This is the part of the tooth you can see. It is generally made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and aesthetics.
You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, several teeth or a full upper and / or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you can be an ideal candidate for all-in-one treatment. Our surgeons will place four implants and install a semicircular arch of teeth and give the process its name (all teeth, only four implants).
