When it comes to straightening your teeth, you will need specialist orthodontist advice and treatment to ensure you choose the right option for your unique dental needs. Our resident orthodontist, Dr Nizar Ishaq, is one of Dubai’s leading practitioners, having practiced in the UAE for over 11 years and developed an excellent reputation. Dr. Ishaq is a member of the French Orthodontist Association having trained at the University of Nantes in France, and holds two Masters degrees in orthodontics (DUO, CES).
Orthodontics for adults can be a very different skill, and Dr. Ishaq is uniquely experienced in working with adults as well as children. At Vilafortuny, our team uses some of the most advanced techniques in orthodontics to provide the smile you desire.
At Vilafortuny, we work with our patients in Dubai to create their desired smile, with a treatment plan that works for their individual lifestyle. This differs for every patient. We offer four advanced techniques in teeth straightening to provide a full complement of choices for our patients.
As an overview,
The Damon System is a metal brace with a difference – it is a self-ligating concept, taking away the need for metal or elastic ligatures. This can be more hygienic, offers less discomfort than traditional braces and patients often find the treatment time reduced by up to 50%.
At Vilafortuny we work with every individual patient to create the perfect treatment plan for their dental concerns. When it comes to teeth straightening in Dubai, there are number of options available, with different cost implications. The treatment options offered by Vilafortuny often shorten treatment time overall and lessen the number of appointments needed during treatment, which can reduce costs compared to traditional treatment. For more information about treatment costs for your individual dental needs, you can visit our resident Orthodontist for a consultation.
We do accept all major credit and debit cards for payment for teeth straightening treatment in Dubai. We also offer a variety of payment options at Vilafortuny in Dubai to offer flexibility for our patients depending on their individual circumstances and budget.
We understand that depending on your budget and lifestyle, you may want the option to spread the cost of your teeth straightening treatment, rather than pay in one lump sum at the start of treatment. We have options available for a twelve month interest free payment plan, or a longer interest paying option. You can discuss your payment options for teeth straightening in Dubai in detail with your dedicated Treatment Coordinator to get the right plan in place for your budget.
As part of the Invisalign consultation process, you will see how your smile will look at the end of treatment. This is your Invisalign Clincheck 3D treatment plan, created just for your smile. Providing you follow the treatment plan, you can rest assured that by the end of treatment your smile will look like the picture you have been shown before treatment starts. You can even follow your progress using the Invisalign App, available to download in Dubai.
During your initial teeth straightening consultation, our orthodontist will conduct a comprehensive consultation, discussing your dental concerns and your desired smile. While it is never the preferred option to extract healthy teeth, our orthodontist will explain the treatment plan options available for your desired smile. That is why it is vital you choose an experienced and highly skilled orthodontist, like Dr Nizar Ishaq at Vilafortuny in Dubai, who can draw on a wealth of experience of past complex cases to choose the right teeth straightening procedure for your individual smile. Using state of the art teeth straightening technologies can help avoid the need for teeth extraction before treatment.
The number and frequency of appointments needed will vary from patient to patient. There are a number of factors involved in this. It will depend on the teeth straightening treatment option you choose – for example, on average patients using an Invisalign system visit us once every 6-8 weeks, once treatment has begun, to monitor progress and receive new aligners. Whereas patients choosing the Damon system will need on average up to 50% less appointments than patients using a more traditional ceramic brace system.
When our orthodontist creates your unique treatment plan, you will have a better idea of how many appointments you will need. Booking in advance may be an option in some cases but as it will depend how your individual teeth respond to treatment, this may not always be possible.
At Vilafortuny in Dubai we pride ourselves on our excellent, patient-centred dental care. We always ensure our patients fully understand all the options available for treatment and choose the right treatment plan for their needs from a range of state of the art technologies, such as Invisalign. Our highly experienced and dedicated team bring their wealth of experience and expertise to provide you with the highest possible quality of treatment in our purpose built facility in Dubai.
Once your teeth straightening treatment is completed, your teeth will have moved into the position for your desired smile. As you will have experienced, your teeth are able to move and this will continue to be the case, once treatment has finished. That is not to say that your teeth will immediately move back to their former positions, but over time, your teeth may start to shift again naturally. That is why your specialist orthodontist will recommend the use of a retainer, on a regular basis, to maintain your new smile.
