What Are Orthodontics?

Orthodontics area branch of dentistry that focuses on aligning and correcting the position of the teeth. Due to the natural development of the mouth, many people develop misaligned jaws resulting in underbites, overbites, and other misalignments. The teeth tend to be crooked or crowded which makes it challenging to maintain proper oral hygiene.

At Arrow Dental Centre, we take pride in offering orthodontic dental care in Nairobi to all patients, from children to adults. Our goal is to help you restore your beautiful, appealing smile.

Orthodontic Treatment in Nairobi

For many people, having a beautiful smile is the reason for considering orthodontic treatment. If you have misaligned teeth, having braces can enhance the way you look and feel. Orthodontic treatment procedures address problems like malocclusion, producing a beautiful smile that can last for long with proper care.

At our Nairobi dental clinic, we help adults and children find the most effective and affordable orthodontic treatment. With options ranging from invisalign, dental braces to removable orthodontics, we can help you find a treatment that will give you a healthy, bright smile and enhance your confidence.

Are You A Good Candidate For Orthodontics?

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, orthodontic solutions like braces may be the right solution for you. Aligning your teeth with braces will not only restore the function of your mouth but also make you feel good sharing your smile.

Ideal candidates for orthodontic dental care are those with healthy teeth but want to remove dental imperfections such as:

  • Overbite: This is a condition in which your front lower teeth bite too closely to the gum by the upper teeth.
  • Crowding: This is usually a result of genetics but can also be caused by habits such as thumb sucking or nail biting. Crowded teeth can be crooked, overlapped, or turned which can affect your bite.
  • Crossbite: This is a condition where your top or bottom teeth fall inside or outside of the opposite teeth, making chewing food challenging.
  • Too much space between teeth
  • Overjet: This is a condition where the upper front teeth protrude too far from the lower teeth usually due to thumb sucking habits as a child.
  • Open bite: This is where the front teeth do not touch, adding pressure on the back teeth and making chewing difficult.
  • Gummy smile: This is a condition where the upper lip is shorter or the upper jaw is enlarged, showing too much gum tissue.

Depending on your condition, you will have a range of orthodontic options. The best way to find which option is right for you is to let our orthodontists in Nairobi conduct an oral diagnosis during your appointment.

Our affordable orthodontist in Nairobi might recommend one of different types of orthodontic care depending on your problem, its severity, budget, and convenience. Some of the options include:


Teeth braces are the most common option in orthodontic treatment. It may be recommended for major orthodontic problems if you want to align your teeth or close gaps quickly. Today’s dental braces come with additional customization options and remain a popular choice for people looking to align their teeth.


Orthodontic aligners also known as invisalign can straighten your teeth without the wires or brackets of traditional braces. They’re worn for a specified period every day. Aligners help in straightening teeth in anywhere from 3 months to 18 months, depending on severity of the problem.


A dental retainer is an appliance used to protect the results of orthodontic intervention. There are various styles of retainers, such as removable and fixed retainers each used to prevent teeth from shifting out of alignment. This allows the newly formed bone to harden around the teeth.

If you have spent years with crooked teeth, you should straighten your smile with professionals. You can achieve a straight smile in months with our orthodontic treatment in Nairobi. With Arrow Dental Centre, you will experience:

Short Treatment Time: While individual treatment periods vary, our orthodontic treatment procedures typically take a few months to achieve the desired results.

More Comfort: Our dental braces use less force compared to other types of braces to align your teeth reducing discomfort and ensuring a positive experience.

How Much Do Orthodontics Cost?

The cost of orthodontic treatment will vary by patient depending on the procedure chosen as well as the severity of the problem.

Is orthodontic work permanent?
Even after the procedure, you experience minor tooth movements. However, it is unusual for teeth to change enough to warrant more orthodontic treatment.

It is important to have your teeth checked by your dentist regularly while you are undergoing orthodontic care. You should clean your teeth everyday and cut down on sugary foods that can damage your brace.
