Get a Beautiful, Healthy Smile at Every Age with Boon Dental
Orthodontic treatments help straighten crooked teeth, close gaps and fix bite problems, improving mouth function, aesthetics and overall oral health. They involve using traditional braces or clear aligners such as Invisalgin and Spark aligners to improve the alignment of the teeth by dentists over a course of treatments.
Orthodontic treatments are suitable for individuals of all ages, with early intervention starting for children aged seven, if not younger where necessary, and above. The treatment duration is based on your dental history, mouth condition and age.
At Boon Dental, we offer a range of orthodontic treatments customised to your teeth to correct teeth alignment and resolve jaw irregularities with quality dental tools and care – giving you the confidence to show your beautiful smile and maintain oral health.
Why Do You Need Orthodontic Treatments
Orthodontic treatments are recommended for several reasons:
- Bite problems such as under, over, cross and open bite
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Jaw misalignments or irregularities
- Closing gaps between teeth
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatments
Orthodontic treatments offer multiple benefits to children, teenagers and adults looking for a solution to misaligned teeth and the ensuing health problems such as bite problems, speech disorders, and gum and mouth disease. Some of them include:
- Early detection of potential teeth problems in children
- Reduces the risk of invasive and extensive treatments in the future
- Improves mouth and gum health and prevents tooth decay
- Boosts your self-esteem with a straight and even smile
- Helps maintain oral hygiene because of easy cleaning
- Treats chewing and speech problems
- Improve breathing capacity
Orthodontic Treatments for Young Children and Teenagers
Early orthodontic treatments minimise the risk of gaps and crooked and crowded teeth in children. It is usually recommended to get the initial check-up by age seven, if not younger where necessary, because your child’s jaw and teeth structure is still developing and permanent teeth are beginning to emerge. This allows our dentists to spot potential issues earlier and prescribe the correct course of treatment to prevent more extensive treatments later on.
Not every child will need orthodontic treatments at such a young age. The initial screening and evaluation help us diagnose your child’s mouth condition and recommend the best treatment if early intervention is required.
Some of the issues we check for in the initial dental screening include bite problems, spacing, protruding teeth leading to jaw or bite problems and teeth alignment. Since a child still has both primary and permanent teeth at this age, our treatments are divided into two phases to guide the teeth into the correct position, with braces or aligners recommended according to the child’s age and diagnosis.
Depending on the severity and the extent of the issue, we aim to correct the tooth placement and growth with a combination of dental tools and professional dental care.
Some of the early interceptive orthodontic treatments we provide include:
- Space maintainer for early loss of baby teeth and excessive spacing to maintain the area for permanent teeth to
erupt in the correct position
- Palate/ Maxillary expanders to correct jaw position
- Crossbite correction treatments
Orthodontic treatments for teenagers or older children whose primary teeth have fallen include using braces and clear aligners to correct the teeth alignment. It’s important to note that the treatment for each patient depends on the severity of the issue, age, and overall oral health.
Orthodontic Treatments for Adults
Orthodontic treatments are not only for children. Adults can also benefit from them at any age to straighten their teeth, maintain oral health and get a healthy, beautiful smile. Boon dental offers a range of orthodontic treatments for adults to help them smile confidently.
We understand that aesthetics is a determining factor in getting braces as an adult. The thought of wearing metal braces or retainers can put off adults from getting the treatment they might need. This is why we offer the latest orthodontic treatments customised to the patient’s teeth and comfort for faster and lasting results.
We work with you to determine the type of treatment you need, keeping you informed throughout with one on one monitoring, ensuring you receive the appropriate treatment and personalised care.

Types of Orthodontic Treatments
At Boon Dental, we have a highly qualified team of orthodontists specialising in treatments for children, teenagers and adults. We use the latest technology and techniques to provide first-class orthodontic treatment tailored to your individual needs. They include:
Traditional braces are fixed and attached to the teeth with metal brackets and wires. They are adjusted as the treatment progresses and may take up to a year or more depending on the condition of your teeth.
Clear Aligners (Invisalign and SPARK aligners)
Clear aligners are custom-made, invisible aligners made with your teeth impression. They don’t need brackets or wires to be attached because clear aligners are designed to fit your teeth seamlessly. Clear aligners are comfortable, almost invisible and can be removed while eating or drinking. They must be worn for at least 22 hours per day to get the desired results. Orthodontic treatments with clear aligners are faster while providing more flexibility and comfort.
Invisalign, Spark and Clearcorrect are just some of the clear aligner brands available in the market. Boon Dental can help you choose the aligners that suit your teeth, budget and schedule to ensure your orthodontic treatments yield the best results.
