Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of irregularities in the teeth and jaw. Abnormal alignment of these features is common and can be overcome easily through good orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic treatment is done to bring about the following outcomes.
Orthodontic treatment is performed by an Orthodontist and it is a long term procedure that involves:
When the teeth don’t meet correctly, it puts a strain on the jaw muscles, which can cause joint problems and even severe headaches. Dental braces treatment can help you get perfectly aligned teeth and reduce the strain.
Crooked and crowded teeth make it difficult to clean the mouth. This can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss in the long run. With the help of orthodontic treatment, your teeth can be straightened or moved into a better position. This improves your appearance and makes it easy for you to clean your teeth.
The prominent front teeth that stick out can also be fixed by pushing them back into line with proper dental braces treatment. The upper and lower jaws might not be perfectly aligned, resulting in an uneven bite, even though the teeth appear to be straight.
Orthodontic treatment may be suggested by the dentist to correct issues which could improve the bite/function and jaw relation of a patient, restoring complete health of the facial structure or purely enhance the appearance of the patient.
The expert orthodontists at Designer Smiles will examine your bite & with the help of digital x rays and models plan the best orthodontic treatment for you.
1. Metal braces
These are traditional metallic braces. They work well, but are clearly visible when you talk, laugh & smile. However they are least expensive as compared to the other options.
2. Ceramic braces
Many patients opt for ceramic braces because they are clear or tooth-colored, making them less visible. These braces also work faster than other dental braces treatments, by giving you perfectly aligned teeth in just 18 to 36 months!
3. Invisible braces for the teeth or Clear Aligners
Several sets of specially molded, invisible orthodontic braces are made for each patient. These aligners are made from clear plastic and are nearly invisible. You will be straightening your teeth and no one will know! Nowadays, invisible braces for teeth are the most preferred option.
If you don’t take good care of your teeth during treatment, they can be affected. The braces will not harm your teeth, however poor oral hygiene and consuming sugary foods and beverages or hard food can. Braces can trap food, causing plaque to build up faster than normal. As a result, you must thoroughly clean your teeth and dental braces.
