It’s a common delusion that orthodontics is the treatment for children and teenage only. Nowadays with state of art technologies and treatment advancement adult orthodontics can beautifully carve your smile which you have never thought before.
Orthodontic involves the diagnoses, prevention & treatment of dental & facial irregularities and is termed as malocclusion technically which means bad bite. While most malocclusions are inherited some are acquired. Inherited dental problems include overbite, crowding of teeth, too much space between teeth & missing teeth.But malocclusions can also be because of skeletal growth problems. The most common being under development of lower jaw. Early treatment in these cases makes a big differences.
Problems which are acquired can be caused by trauma, thumb sucking & premature loss to teeth. Further the consequences of teeth irregularity could lead to-
Constant general forces are applied in carefully controlled directions with an orthodontic appliance to move the teeth into proper alignment i.e. teeth straightning.Many choices exist today like metal braces, ceramic braces, clear braces, orthodontic aligner etc. Beside traditional braces which are applied to front of the teeth, there are new braces known as lingual braces that are attached back of the teeth. Another way to move teeth is through clear orthodontic invisible aligners. Aligned teeth allows you to bite chew & speak more effectively & may be easier to clean leading to better oral health.
We recommend the children should be evaluated by 7 yr of age. Early diagnosis of orthodontic problem is important in order to take early corrective/ preventive actions & to avoid more difficult treatment later. However orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. In fact adults represent 1 out of every 5 orthodontic patients today. Treatment time typically ranges from 1 to 3 years depending upon growth of patients mouth/face severity of problems. Early interceptive treatment for children as well as minor tooth movement in adult may take as little as 6 months. Once treatment is completed, retainers are often used to maintain the results & keep your smile beautiful.
