Moving Teeth with Technology
Our mission: To provide the best that orthodontic technology can offer with the best that humanity can offer!
The quality of care and experience is evident when you walk into our warm tropical paradise. Be it your child’s first orthodontic evaluation (recommended no later than age 7) or your own as an adult, Dr. Bhatia’s dual specialty enables her to be an orthodontist for children, teenagers, and adults. Her expertise ranges from preventive and interceptive orthodontics for children, early orthodontic and orthopedic treatment, and Invisible braces for teenagers and adults.
At Kihei * Lahaina Orthodontics we use the latest proven technology that makes braces less noticeable, improves patient comfort and reduces frequency of appointments and treatment time. Especially important is the fact that new techniques can possibly eliminate the need for extraction of permanent teeth and the need for future surgery in growing children.
Less Tin in a Grin
Less visible, clear or tooth-colored brackets are available. Dr. Bhatia is also a Premier Provider for Invisalign® and an exclusive provider for Invisalign® Teen. This enables her to offer this technological breakthrough to help straighten teeth without traditional braces.
At Kihei * Lahaina Orthodontics we use "Space Age" wires that have been developed through the NASA space program. The wires are made from flexible metals that are heat activated.
We use the latest brackets that allow for more control of each tooth. These high tech materials enable us to spread out your appointments 6-8 weeks apart as compared to the traditional 3-4 weeks apart. The force applied to the teeth is gentler and there is less discomfort.
We also use digital photography and x-rays that speed up the time needed to make the diagnosis. The digital x-ray exposes the patient to minimal radiation as compared to typical x-rays.
Lastly, and most importantly, is the relationship we establish with our patients. We consider you a member of our patient family the first day you come into our office. We strive to get to know each and every one of our patients on a personal level because we truly care about you! We hope that you will share and laugh with us throughout your treatment in our office. In our office it’s not just about teeth straightening, it’s about the experience. WELCOME ABOARD!
