15 Best Orthodontists in Dubai

Before we tell you our reviews for the best Orthodontists in Dubai, find below some general info that you should know before choosing your orthodontists: Types of Orthodontics treatments:


Invisalign®, a revolutionary system from the famous company Align Technology USA. This will straightens your teeth without the need of wires and brackets, using a series of customized and removable appliances called aligners.It is virtually undetectable, which means its very hard for anyone to know that you’re straightening your teeth. The price for the Invisalign treatment starts from AED18,000 in Dubai.

2-Damon Braces

  Ordinary braces use “elastic bands”. The bands might become stained or stretched, which require your orthodontist to change them. They may also retain food, making it difficult for you to keep your braces always clean. However, there are SmartClip™ braces what special about it is that there is no need to ligatures to hold the archwire. Instead of ordinary elastic bands, SmartClip™ braces use small metal clips to hold the arch wire. So you can forget all the problems associated with elastic bands. Damon Braces starting price is 21,000 AED

3-Invisible Lingual Braces

Starting price 20,000 AED in Dubai
