Founded in 2007, SmileSolution is a state-of-the-art Specialist Orthodontic Clinic in Hong Kong. At SmileSolution, we offer orthodontic patients all the attention and care they deserve in order to get them a beautiful and healthy smile! We follow the philosophy of "Face Driven Orthodontics", for both children and adults.
The American Association of Orthodontists and SmileSolution highly recommend children should visit an Orthodontist for an initial orthodontic check up not later than the age of 7. The Orthodontist can assess when is the best time for orthodontic treatment for each child, as he/she has different times of growth and maturity.
Conventional braces work using individual brackets and archwires to move your teeth into position. Each bracket is fitted to the surface of your tooth and the archwire is slotted into these brackets. As the archwire attempts to straighten using light force from elastic bands, it gradually moves your teeth into their desired position. Ceramic or Clear braces are getting popular nowadays as they are esthetically more pleasing.
The terms “invisible aligners" or "clear aligners” refer to type of orthodontic system that is less easily noticed than traditional braces. It also typically refers to systems such as Invisalign®, Spark® that are used to correct cosmetic problems with front teeth. Problems invisible braces can correct include crooked or spaced teeth, crowded teeth, and a few teeth that are out of position. However, clear aligners are usually not suitable for extraction cases, and patients compliance is the most important factor in treatment success.
Lingual braces (Incognito® by 3M Oral Care or WIN® System by DW Lingual Systems) are similar to traditional braces in that brackets and wires are installed in the mouth and on the teeth to fix misalignments. However, lingual braces differ because they are almost entirely invisible. They are placed on the back of the teeth facing the tongue, rather than the front of the teeth. Because of this, lingual braces allow for a more discreet option for orthodontic patients not willing to wear traditional braces for a lengthy amount of time. And lingual braces is best for those cases which are not suitable for Clear Aligners. (e.g. Extraction cases)

Your initial visits
Each individual’s orthodontic needs are unique and deserve personalized care and attention. Your initial visit is the best opportunity for you to tell us what you wish to accomplish with orthodontics. The initial examination will also provide the opportunity to ask questions or express any concerns you may have about treatment.
The initial consultation is a 20 minutes appointment which consists of a comprehensive clinical and radiological examination. These include digital photographs, radiographs of the teeth and the jaws and impressions to fabricate a digital model of your teeth. This examination helps to determine your orthodontic needs.
In the next consultation appointment, the Orthodontist will sit down with the patient and family with all the records and analysis ready, and explain in detail how he can help straightening the patient’s teeth and smile by orthodontic treatment.
