Dr Teena Sareen has included the tip edge technique in her practice for the better and faster results.
Why choose our unique technique
Easier and faster to move a tooth by tipping first, then uprighting the root, rather than moving the tooth bodily. This reduces the force considerably and thus comfortable for the patient with less pain.
Easier and faster to correct overbites and over jets so it takes lesser appointments. Our new tip edge technique reduces the treatment time to an average of 2 years.

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
How do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?
Orthodontics, visually just a cosmetic change, also include changes in your bite pattern (malocclusion), chin position, space closures and many other nuances. These might appear to be subtle changes to you, but these are very important to good oral health and maintaining a better bite efficacy for long term. In short, having a mouth full of teeth for long might directly depend on how you use your pearly whites. A traumatic bite can cause early chipping and fracturing of teeth. Had several fractured teeth and need several crown recently? this might be a good time to talk about braces. You don’t have to be shy about a metal smile, we have invisible braces/ invisalign/ ceramic braces options for adults and adolescent.
A good time to have a check up is at your early ages (8-12 yrs) when your child is still in her mixed dentition, or even before. In orthodontics, catch them young is the mantra.
If you have any of the following, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:
- Overbite, sometimes called “buck teeth” — where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth
- Underbite — a “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
- Crossbite — when the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
- Open bite — space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
- Misplaced midline— when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
- Spacing — gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth
- Crowding — when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate
