How can Orthodontic Treatment Help?
An orthodontist can carry out work that aims to achieve the following:
closing wide gaps between the teeth
aligning the tips of the teeth
straightening crooked teeth
improving speech or chewing ability
boosting the long-term health of gums and teeth
preventing long-term excessive wear or trauma of the teeth
treating an improper bite
Treatment can improve the appearance of the teeth, but it can also lead to better chewing and speech function and help protect teeth from damage or decay, in some cases.
To achieve these goals, the orthodontist uses a range of medical dental devices, including headgear, plates, and braces.
When should people start seeing Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment can start as early as the age of 7. Early interceptive treatment can start with braces and aligners so that the teeth can be shaped from an early age for the best smile possible. Individuals are encouraged to keep seeing the orthodontist on a regular basis as these professionals play a very imperative role in preserving good oral health at all times.
Types of Orthodontics:
People get confused about applying braces as an orthodontic treatment because of its various kinds. Braces include:
Also known as traditional braces are commonly used by kids for its affordability. They are metal brackets that are applied to your teeth, and the metal wire which is threaded on the brackets is meant to exert pressure on the teeth and finally move them.
A retainer is another form of orthodontic treatment; usually used during the final process of treatment; it can either be fixed or removable.
When incorporated, this treatment holds the teeth while the gum and bones are moved to a new spot. You can permanently straighten your teeth if you consistently wear a retainer for the better part of your lifetime.
Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made of a strong plastic material and are fabricated to fit each individual’s mouth. If a series of aligners are needed, each aligner moves the teeth in incraments until the desired movement is achieved.
