Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening and correcting the tooth alignment altering bone growth to produce a natural, regular arrangement and a beautiful smile.
Who Needs Orthodontic Treatment?
Today children as well as adults are choosing to have orthodontic treatment since age is no longer a factor that governs the feasibility of the treatment. But as you grow older the duration of the treatment is increased since it is easier to shift and align teeth during the growth phase of the jaws. Orthodontic treatment corrects
- Malocclusion (bite or occlusion is off)
- Tooth misalignment (crooked teeth)
Malocclusion (the way the upper and lower jaw meet) is quite often a reflection on what is happening in the rest of the body. Unfortunately for the teeth they grow in as a malocclusion because of the underlying deeper problems. To straighten the teeth without looking at these other issues might lead to the teeth moving again after treatment. With the Braces it is now possible to make room for all the teeth but at the same time align the upper and lower jaws and also crooked tooth.
Types of Braces Available
Metal brackets are the ones that are mostly used. These brace small as compare to older metal braces. These are less expensive than other types of braces. The new heat-activated archwires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painful than in the past.
The clear path system uses a unique slide mechanism that minimizes the friction and binding associated with conventional braces. With this System teeth align more quickly and comfortably. Most people want better looking teeth but they also do not want people to know that they have braces or deal with the unattractiveness of having those things in your mouth for so long. They are a little more expensive but they will get the job done.
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable. Ceramic brackets are made of composite materials. Adults like to choose ceramic because they "blend in" with the teeth and are less noticeable than metal.
Lingual braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that the braces are placed in inner side of teeth. This technology is best in hiding the braces. They are placed on the back side of the teeth so no one will see that you have them on. Usually, lingual brackets are made of metal.
