Surprised by how dramatically different you look once your orthodontic treatment is complete.
Orthodontic (Braces) Treatment
At Lee Dental Surgery Kajang, we provide orthodontic services for children and adults looking to straighten their teeth and align their jaw. Our professional orthodontists are able to treat any issues pertaining to the jaw. We can also move and adjust teeth, even if they are completely formed and hardened. This makes it possible to straighten teeth in adults, rather than only children.
Overall, our orthodontist treats the position of teeth and the jaw, while also changing the overall shape and appearance of a patient’s face. We find that many of our patients are pleasantly surprised by how dramatically different they look once their orthodontic treatment is complete.
Some tooth alignment problems happen when children develop and can be guided before puberty but become more apparent once the permanent teeth begin to come through the gum (erupt).
Not correcting an abnormal bite could result in further oral health problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, affected speech and/or jaw problems. Straightening your teeth can be accomplished in different ways.
CLEAR ALIGNER SYSTEMS (Invisalign®)
As the demand for aesthetic treatments is increasing, more people are seeking alternatives to fixed orthodontic appliances. Clear aligners are an aesthetic and comfortable option for orthodontic treatment and have gained immense popularity over the last decade.
At Lee Dental Surgery Kajang, our orthodontist offers Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign® clear aligners are a set of clear braces, made from BPA-free plastic which gradually moves the teeth into their correct position. Their transparent appearance has resulted in them being known as ‘invisible braces’.
Invisalign® is the clear alternative to metal braces for kids, teens, and adults. The Invisalign system is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Backed by two decades of innovation, the Invisalign system has helped bring smiles to over 9 million people including over 2.3 million teens.
Invisalign® clear aligners straighten teeth more predictably and comfortably than other aligners and dental braces, at a similar cost. Our orthodontist will review your goals, create a treatment plan that you will be satisfied, and manage your treatment every step of the way.
Dental braces are devices used in orthodontics to straighten teeth and align the jaw while helping to position the teeth with regard to a person’s bite. Dental braces work by putting pressure on your teeth over a period of time to slowly move them in a specific direction.
At the same time, dental braces also work to improve oral health. The type of braces you have depends upon the extent of your orthodontic problem and your budget. There are two types of braces: fixed and removable. You can also choose among various options in regard to the materials used.
There are several types of brackets, including stainless steel and tooth-coloured ceramic or plastic. Some braces also include rubber bands or metal ties that link the brackets to the wire. Instead of headgear or rubber bands, TADs (Temporary Anchorage Device) may be an option for some patients.
Besides, modern metal brackets are smaller and less noticeable than they used to be.
The main reasons for fitting dental braces are:
- Crooked teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Overcrowded Jaw
- Asymmetrical teeth
These jaw or tooth alignment problems may be inherited or could result from injury, early or late tooth loss, or thumbsucking. Moreover, you will need braces if you want to close gaps between teeth and correct bite problems.

Fitting of a Brace
The fitting process of braces involves two stages. The first stage involves the taking of an impression of your mouth, teeth and gums through X-rays which acts as a blueprint for the brace. You’ll get a series of X-rays to determine the position of teeth. This dental impression is sent to a dental laboratory where technicians use this to fabricate your brace.
The second stage is the fitting of your new brace. The orthodontist slots this over your teeth before checking the fit and position. If you have chosen a fixed brace then this will be cemented into place.
After the brackets and/or metal bands are in place, a metal wire (or “archwire”) is placed in the brackets and secured with elastic rubber bands (or clipped into place with self-ligating brackets).
As you wear them, braces slowly straighten and align your teeth so you have a normal bite.
However, it’s important to be extra mindful about your oral care when you have braces.
You will need to visit the orthodontist on regular appointments in order to examine the progress of the brace. Adjustments will be made if necessary. In order to prevent the teeth from moving back to their original position, retainers are worn once the treatment is complete. The mechanical process used to move teeth with braces is the same at any age.
At Lee Dental Surgery Kajang we are pleased to offer our valued patients Damon® Braces. The Damon Braces allow your teeth to move more effectively and comfortably than traditional braces, which will give you a broader and healthier smile, resulting in a more youthful look.
Damon braces are self-ligating appliances that are fitted in the same way as traditional metal braces. However, the Damon System employs a patented slide mechanism to connect archwires to the bracket while allowing the wire to move freely. It helps to reduce friction and improve overall oral hygiene by eliminating elastic ties.
You will definitely be surprised as this new innovative system can help you to achieve a new and healthy smile easier and faster.
Damon® Braces are the ideal choice to fix:
- Protruding Teeth;
- Open Bites;
