Orthodontic treatment is needed to correct improperly positioned teeth and jaws. If the teeth are crooked there are more chances of decay and gum disease. If the jaws are not properly aligned, it can cause temporomandibular joint disorders.


Who is an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is an expert in repairing misalignments of the teeth and jaws. The orthodontists are dental specialists catering to preventing, diagnosing and treating dental and facial irregularities for example malocclusions or bad bites. Around 6% of dentists are orthodontists who deal with debilitating problems related with misalignment such as speech defects, chewing difficulty and problems associated with maintaining sufficient oral hygiene. These dentistry experts successfully treat acute oral disorders like Anteroposterior deviations, Overcrowding and Aesthetic issues.


What does an Orthodontist look after?

The primary job of an orthodontist is to correct malfunctions within the mouth, including crooked teeth, misplaced teeth and misaligned jaws. They check their patient’s teeth to determine if they require braces and provide suitable solutions depending on the prevailing dental condition. The specialist dentists also design and construct individual dental appliance such as retainers. They do so by referring to the dental history of the patients. Furthermore, they keep a regular check on dental appliances in patients and makes necessary adjustments. They also ensure that braces don’t get damaged and make repairs, as deemed essential.

Some of the common issues handled by orthodontists are as follows:

  • Anteroposterior Deviations: Common problems include underbite where the lower teeth are positioned too forward than upper teeth and overbite where the upper teeth are way too forward in position than the lower ones. Such issues cause difficulty in articulating and chewing.
  • Overcrowding: There is a lack of jawbone space which means adult teeth cannot erupt in alignment with existing teeth. The dentistry experts realign the teeth by using unobtrusive treatments and devices.
  • Aesthetic Problems: Often, the shape of the whole face gets affected by malocclusions. In this case, the jaws, lips and teeth are reshaped and restructured to create an even smile.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic appliances can be both fixed and removable. They exert pressure on teeth and jaws to align them in proper position. The orthodontic approach depends on the kind of problem.


Determining the kind of Treatment Needed

You need to consult an orthodontist if there is:

  • Crowded or misplaced teeth
  • Sucking the thumb or fingers or other oral habits
  • Speech difficulty
  • Protruding teeth
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Inability to close lips
  • Front teeth that do not meet

Treatment: Braces and Retainers

Everyone has a slightly different bite, so treatment techniques vary. Braces are the most common approach. They help to move the teeth slowly by applying precise amounts of light pressure over a long period of time.

Most orthodontic treatments occur in two phases:

  • The active phase — Braces or other appliances are used to move the teeth into proper alignment and correct the bite.
  • The retention phase — A retainer is used to hold the teeth in their new positions for the long term. In addition to braces, orthodontists sometimes use special appliances (called functional appliances) to direct the growth of the jaw in young children. These appliances are rarely used in adults, that's because they are not effective after growth is complete.

Procedure

At first, an assessment of patient’s teeth is made by using X-ray and making plaster models. The orthodontist then decides the need for either removable, or functional or fixed appliance.

In some cases, it might be necessary to remove a tooth to correct the position of other teeth.

Retainers are often used near the end of orthodontic treatment. They hold newly fixed teeth in place while the adjacent gums and bone adjust to new position of teeth.


Types of Braces available

Clear Aligners: Clear Aligners are removable medical grade plastic appliances which patient wears instead of brackets and wires to correct malocclusion. Dental aligners are a modern alternative to braces, for teeth that are in need of straightening.

Removability
You can remove Clear Aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss or for special occasions.

Metal Braces: When most people think of metal braces they think of the big clunky braces of the past. They were extremely uncomfortable and more than capable of cutting your lips. From a cosmetic point of view they were, at best, unattractive and are wholly responsible for the stigma attached to braces today. However, times have changed and so have braces.

Modern braces are smaller and more comfortable than old fashioned braces. They have what is called a low profile design, which is less irritating to your lips. They also have special contours to make your orthodontic treatment go faster and be less painful Braces now use new plastics and bonding adhesives rendering metal bands a distant, somewhat painful memory. Wire and brackets can be "super-glued" directly onto the teeth making them far more secure. There are even some braces that seem "invisible".

Invisible Braces/Ceramic/Tooth Coloured Braces/Clear Braces: Clear braces offer a unique advantage over conventional metal appliances. The material composition and design allows an uncompromising level of care and enable you to look good during treatment. Many people may not even be aware that you're wearing braces at all.
