“Orthodontics is not just a science but is an art as well”.
In order to achieve harmonious facial balance, the soft and hard tissues have to be fully assessed and the proportions and balance of the face need to be analysed.
As an orthodontist, Dr Sher works closely with highly accomplished maxilla facial surgeons. Together they team up to perform surgical orthognathics to rectify skeletal discrepancies and bites, to achieve an aesthetically beautifully balanced face and smile with corrected malocclusions.
As Albert Einstein so perfectly penned,
“After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in Aesthetics, plasticity and form. The greatest scientists are always artists as well”.
