Where to have braces in Malaysia? – check out this blog before saying yes

Now that you have decided to take the plunge and have braces, the next step is to determine where to get the braces done.

The decision depends on many factors:

1. Convenient location and opening hours

This is a very important point to consider because the entire treatment might take at least 1 year and you would need to see the dentist/Orthodontist every 4-6 weeks. Do make sure you are able to travel to the clinic every month for check-up. In fact, if you are travelling from another state/country (e.g. Singapore) for your braces check-up, it is usually advisable to book your appointment 2-3 months ahead. That way, you are almost assured of an appointment slot.

2. Cost and payment plan

Your choice of clinic is also dependent on the cost of braces and payment plan offered. Is the treatment affordable given your current expenditure and lifestyle? If not, there is no harm (for most cases) in delaying treatment until you have saved up enough money.

3. Availability of specialist (Orthodontist) at the clinic

Both dentists and Orthodontists can provide braces treatment. However, some may choose to see an Orthodontist for a more specialised care as they are better trained to handle a wider range of orthodontic problems.

4. Types of braces offered

Your choice of braces (e.g. metal braces, clear braces, lingual braces or clear aligners) would also determine where you choose to have braces done. For example, most government dental clinics only offer metal braces whereas private dental clinics usually have more options.

5. Rapport with the dentist/Orthodontist

It is a good idea to have consultation with a few dentists/Orthodontists to find someone you are comfortable with. After all, you will be seeing the same person every month for the next year or so (Hint: find a dentist/Orthodontist who is willing to explain the procedures and answer all questions patiently).

6. Recommendation from others

With so many dental clinics to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to decide on one. The easiest way would be to ask family members and friends for personal recommendation. Get their feedback and ask them about the entire braces experience and what they like or don’t like about the clinic. You could also look up online reviews of the clinics.

Most private and some government dental clinics offer braces treatment. We have compiled a list of government, military and university dental clinics in Malaysia offering braces treatment.
