Where is the best place to get braces in Dubai

It can be hard to know which dentist or dental specialist to go to, especially when it is for something as important as cosmetic dental surgery. It’s always a good idea to get recommendations from friends, colleagues, or your regular dentist.  In Dubai, the American Medical and Dental Centre has a wide range of dentists, all of whom are highly trained, have excellent skills, and work with children, teens, adults and geriatrics. The AMDC can get you that Hollywood smile.

What about dental braces?

Most people will go to an orthodontist for their dental braces, in particular children or teens who need ceramic braces or metal braces. These teeth braces cost less and work well, and are usually the best braces for teeth straightening. Many teens prefer invisible braces – they find it awkward smiling and bearing a mouthful of metal – but it really is an individual choice, and a budget choice. The orthodontists at AMDC are well aware that having braces can be awkward, for anyone of any age, and have made quite sure that their invisible braces are well priced and available to all.

Is there such a thing as cheap braces?

Parents sometimes procrastinate when it comes to taking their kids to the orthodontist, or themselves, because they feel the price is going to be daunting. Getting dental braces is a process, and depending on the state of the teeth, may be a year, or two, and sometimes worst case scenario, longer. The good news is you can pay off the braces, and generally, and again it depends on which Dubai dentist you choose, the monthly fees are not too high. Technology has ensured that not only can you get the best braces at decent prices, but also that you can get invisible braces and ‘skip’ that awkward stage. Dental clinics in Dubai use the latest technology, always good for the news.

Metal, ceramic or invisible braces

There is a huge trend towards adults getting dental braces as the invisible braces really are incredible and are almost incognito braces. They also work pretty quickly, are less painful (hardly painful at all actually) and the adjustments are easy. Saying that, ceramic braces or metal braces have also made huge advances in technology and the given the teeth braces cost, many people opt for metal braces or ceramic braces.

It is important to note that there are other types of invisible braces, such as Invisalign, also on offer at the AMDC in Dubai, and a good dentist can do these, and are trained to do these, one does not have to go to an orthodontist. When you need specialist dental work in Dubai, you can get hold of AMDC.

What questions should you ask your orthodontist?

A good orthodontist in Dubai will always tell you what to expect. You probably should not have to ask any questions, as they will go through the process with you, but:-

  • Is there a difference between metal braces and ceramic braces?
  • Are invisible braces an option for you?
  • What is the cost of all the dental braces?
  • Which are the best braces recommended for your particular problem?
  • How long will the entire process take?
  • How long is each visit?
  • What can you expect at the end of your dental braces procedure?
  • Is there such a thing as cheap braces?
  • Will there be discomfort?

And always, always, insist and before and after pics.  Because your mouth is going to look fabulous!

Do you need to get to the dentist urgently?

One of the things everyone realised during the Covid-19 lockdown was how desperately they needed the dentist. Nobody likes that fuzzy and grimy feeling that you get on your teeth from a build up of plaque, and pretty much everyone realised how they do need to maintain their dental hygiene!

General dental hygiene

Whether you want a regular dental check up, teeth whitening, orthodontics, veneers, root canal or dental implants, visiting the dentist over this time of Covid-19 can be stressful. It is important that you choose the right Dubai dentist, one who follows all the protocols. You want to ensure that you go to a dentist where you are safe, and also, where the staff are safe.  Let’s take a look at some of the dental protocols in place.

Dental protocols during Covid-19

  1. Appointments must be made in advance.
  2. Patients must complete a Covid-19 form prior to the appointment.
  3. If patients have been travelling, or exposed to Covid-19, they must quarantine prior to seeing the dentist.
  4. Patients and staff will have their temperatures taken.
  5. Patients and staff must wear masks.
  6. Hand sanitiser must be available in all dental clinics, in all rooms.
  7. Staff, including dentists, specialists and cleaners, must be tested regularly.
  8. Anyone with any exposure or signs of illness must stay home / be quarantined.
  9. Patient details must always be noted in case tracing needs to be done.
  10. Dentists in close quarters with patients must wear protective gear.
  11. All staff must maintain social distancing.
  12. Social distancing, between dentist and patient must be undertaken when possible.
  13. When social distancing is not possible, the dentist must be fully masked / correctly geared.

If you are having dental implants, or any dental issues, of course your dentists is going to be working with his or her hands in your mouth. In this case, just like going to a doctor, social distancing is possible. Your dentist must therefore take extreme measures with hygiene, masks and protective gear, to ensure that neither you, nor they, can transmit a disease.

A good Dubai dentist will always follow the strictest hygiene protocols. You and your dentist, especially if you are getting dental implants, are going to spend a bit of time together. You have the appointment, the assessment, the measuring and design, and then the fitting. It is imperative that this is all done correctly, professionally and safely. Saying that, Covid-19 is not a time to avoid the dentist or doctor. The longer you leave a  necessary dental procedure, the worse your condition will become.

If you feel you need to get to your dentist, whether urgently or for a regular check-up, make the appointment now. The Covid-19 form is not a difficult one to complete, and your dentist will probably want it completed the day prior to your appointment. Thereafter, on arrival, they will take your temperature and ensure your safety. In Dubai we would recommend the American Medical and Dental Clinic, safe, professional and extremely hygienic.

Dental implant : To implant or not, that is the (dental) question

Dental implant has always been a word that is associated with age. As you age, you lose your teeth and implants are a good option. Yet there are many young people in this world with dental implants, and you would never know it. If you are in Dubai and need dental implants done by a Dubai dentist, you need to choose your dentist carefully.

When do you need a dental implant?

If you have lost a tooth, a dental implant could be the best treatment for you. People lose teeth for various reasons – it could be dental decay or perhaps an accident such as a sport injury. Some people are just born with bad teeth, and this is genetic. The thing is, you don’t have to walk around with gaps in your teeth. Dental implants are a great option, and much better than dentures!

What is a dental implant?

Your dentist will explain the way dental implant works. Basically it is a replacement tooth with a replacement root. It literally gets screwed in, and once in, is there to stay. It looks like your own tooth, it feels like your own tooth and it works just the way your own tooth would look.

Advantages of dental implants

Dental implants make your mouth and your smile look good again. As we said, there is no need to walk around with gaps in your mouth and a dental implants, or more if you need more, will give you back your confidence. They help you with:-

It all depends on how bad your gap is, if your tooth is fully missing or partially broken, the state or stage of decay, the position of your damaged tooth, and more!

Are dental implants successful?

When done by a good dentist, Dubai dental implants are hugely successful. Of course, you must get your dental work done by a reputable and professional dentist. You also need to care for your implant, in exactly the same way you would care for your own teeth. Dental implants needs to be brushed twice a day, flossed daily, and even if you are filled with dental implants, you still need to visit the dentist on a twice yearly basis for regular check ups.

Veneers : Do you also want a beautiful Hollywood smile?

There was a time when good smiles and veneers were only affordable for the rich and famous. Today there are a variety of ways that regular people can also have beautiful Hollywood smiles, without paying a small fortune.  If your teeth are cracked, stained or discoloured or crooked, They are a great option.

How long do Veneers take?

A good dentist in Dubai, one who specialises in veneers, should usually take two visits. Your teeth will have been assessed in advance and appointments for veneers or dental cosmetic surgery will have made. At the first visit your dentist will remove some of the existing enamel from your teeth, to make room for the veneers. This is the more uncomfortable part of the process. The second appointment will be the placing of the veneers over your existing teeth. Veneers are custom made for you.

Who should do your veneers?

If you are in Dubai, or anywhere in the United Arab Emirates, the American Medical and Dental Centre specialise in all kinds of cosmetic dental surgery, including simple tooth whitening and dental implants. For any of these procedures, you want to go to a specialist. Dubai veneers are best done by the AMDC, where you know you are going to get fantastic results. Veneers are also affordable and remember, you do not have to do all your teeth. Your dentist will give you all the advice you need and tell you which procedure is best for you.

Why have veneers?

As we say, you do have options when it comes to fixing teeth. Teeth that are discoloured may just need a good teeth whitening, either by laser, Zoom or a home treatment. Teeth that are missing most likely need dental implants. The teeth that are chipped, crooked or broken, would do well with veneers. Dental veneers, or at least having a good smile, will give you confidence. There will be no more putting your hand in front of your mouth, covering your mouth, or giving a half-hearted smile through tight lips! You can show off your teeth and with veneers, they will look beautiful. They make all the difference to a face!

What exactly are Veneers?

We thought you’d never ask. Veneers are in fact custom designed ‘shells’ that are made of porcelain (mostly) and are bonded to your teeth. They are made of porcelain (mostly) because of its strength and durability. They are a quick option if you don’t want to go through the whole process of orthodontics, especially as an adult, or if you have teeth that are pretty much beyond repair.

If you are considering orthodontics as an adult, chat to your Dubai dentist. Orthodontics, whilst easier to do in your teens, are an option in adulthood. You have choices today which you did not have a few decades ago. Our dental clinic in Dubai has a team of dentists, specialists, orthodontists and cosmetic dental surgeons who can ensure your teeth look and feel fantastic!

Dental clinics in Dubai use the latest technology

Dubai is known as being a high tech city. Our residents are high tech too, with the latest smart devices in their offices, homes and on their bodies. Technology makes life easy for us and that includes technology within health care and at a dental clinic.

dentists AND Technology 

Technology is used to examine your teeth, identify problems and fix the problems. A good dentist uses smart tools, ensuring your visits are quick, easy, professional and less painful. While we can never guarantee a pain-free experience, because some treatments are more uncomfortable than others, the best technology ensures your experience is as comfortable as possible.

Tooth whitening

Many dentists today offer tooth whitening as a cosmetic dental service. You can do home tooth whitening as well. But when you have it done by a dentist, a specialist at a Dubai dental clinic, you are going to get a far superior result. Dentists today use the latest technological advancements meaning that the tooth whitening works, it lasts, and it is a pretty comfortable experience.

Dental imaging

Dental imaging is used if x-rays are needed of your mouth, to check for decay or to check for any dental / oral problems you are experiencing that cannot be seen with the human eye. A good dentist in Dubai will use the latest technology to not just treat you but also, to prevent you from having problems.

Technology works a few different ways. It makes it easier for a dentist to treat you. Technology makes the treatment far more comfortable for you. It also helps to prevent further onset of oral disease, as well as fewer cavities, less gum disease and in general, better oral health.

Dental treatment should never be sore

While some dental treatment is going to be uncomfortable, it should never be sore. Anything that is painful needs to be done under anaesthetic. While nobody really looks forward to having a dental filling, root canal treatment or dental implants, technology means that it is far less stressful having these treatments today. Our dental clinic in Dubai makes use of the latest technology, and combining technology with an excellent team of dentists, means your visits are going to be smoothness and seamless.

You can even use dental technology at home

Nobody wants to get too carried away and there is nothing wrong with a good old toothbrush, toothpaste and brushing teeth the right way. An electric toothbrush is a great tool to have (have both, electric and ordinary). You can find apps online that track your tooth brushing or flossing!. We feel you just need to get into a good routine.. There is no reason for you to use technology when it comes to your teeth, unless you want to. But visit the dentist on a regular basis, brush your teeth twice a day and if you are in Dubai and looking for a dental clinic, the American Medical and Dental Clinic is the best.
