Orthodontics is the practice through which your teeth appearance and smile is enhanced by straightening the teeth but also improves your over-all dental health and comfort. Misaligned teeth and dental over-crowding can result in discomfort and can affect the function of teeth. Often, people with these symptoms feel less confident in smiling or engaging with others. Correcting these problems require orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontics can be used to treat:
- Missing Teeth.
- Extra Teeth.
- Protruding Teeth or Jaw.
- Deept Over-Bite.
- Cross Bite.
- Difficulty in Chewing or Swallowing.
How Orthodontics work.
Common Orthodontics treatments require the patient to wear braces (appliance) designed and installed to add gentle pressure on the misaligned teeth to correct their alignment and position. This process often takes between one to two years depending on the severity of the diagnosed condition. Essentially, Orthodontics is a cosmetic dental practice aimed at correcting teeth positioning and protrusion providing better appearance and function of the teeth.
Types of Orthodontics Braces.
There are a number of braces that can be used. Often, the use of particular braces is dependent on the dentists assessment and patient’s preference. At Blue Spa Dental, we use the most advanced orthodontics braces designed for providing optimum comfort and enabling the patient to get used to the braces in a relatively short time. In addition, we understand that patients want to look their best even while wearing braces, therefore, we consult with our patients and help them select the best possible braces available.
Patients who have braces are often seen by our orthodontists periodically so that the braces can be adjusted as the correction process progresses. The frequency of those periodical checks and adjustments relies on the speed at which the teeth are correcting or re-positioning. The adjustment process involves adjusting the tension — fastening or tightening — the braces to accommodate the required pressure on the teeth. In some cases, adjusting the braces may require disengaging or removing the braces from one or more teeth. Neglecting the periodical check-up and adjustment can render the braces ineffective until they are properly adjusted.
Ignoring misaligned teeth and jaw?
In addition to the cosmetic effect and poor appearance of the teeth, dental misalignment can cause more complex problems including discomfort in eating and grinding the teeth which can potentially cause the teeth to loosen as well as pain at later stages.
Orthodontics and Children
Parents are strongly recommended to have their children examined for teeth and jaw misalignment issues as they can be relatively easy to correct with proper orthodontics procedures and treated at early stages to avoid future dental problems. In addition, once their teeth are corrected, children will develop greater confidence and self-esteem.
