Orthodontics

Explainer Video

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting irregularities in the alignment of teeth and jaws. It aims to improve both the function and aesthetics of the smile by using various orthodontic appliances and techniques to reposition teeth and align the bite. Orthodontic treatment can address a wide range of dental issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps between teeth, and misaligned jaws, helping patients achieve healthier, more balanced smiles.

Orthodontics Procedures

1. Traditional Metal Braces
  • Description: The most common and traditional form of orthodontic treatment. Consists of metal brackets attached to the teeth, connected by wires that are periodically tightened by the orthodontist to gradually move the teeth into the desired position.
  • Best For: Treating a wide range of alignment issues, from simple to complex.
2. Ceramic Braces
  • Description: Similar to metal braces but made of clear or tooth-colored ceramic materials. They are less visible on the teeth, making them a popular choice for adults and older teenagers.
  • Best For: Patients looking for a less noticeable option than metal braces but with similar effectiveness.
3. Lingual Braces
  • Description: Custom-made braces that are placed on the backside of the teeth, making them invisible from the front. They are as effective as traditional braces but require a specialist trained in this specific treatment.
  • Best For: Adults and teens concerned about the aesthetic aspect of braces.
4. Clear Aligners (Invisalign)
  • Description: A series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth to gradually move them into the desired position. Aligners are removable and need to be replaced every two weeks with the next set in the series.
  • Best For: Adults and teenagers looking for a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment option with the convenience of being removable.
5. Self-Ligating Braces
  • Description: Braces that do not require elastics or rubber bands. Instead, they use special clips or doors to hold the wire, which reduces the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and can shorten treatment time.
  • Best For: Patients seeking a more comfortable alternative to traditional braces with potentially shorter treatment times.
6. Palatal Expanders
  • Description: A device used to widen the upper jaw in cases where the upper jaw is too narrow compared to the lower jaw, resulting in a crossbite. The expander is usually used in children and adolescents while their jaws are still growing.
  • Best For: Correcting crossbites and making room for crowded teeth in growing patients.
7. Retainers
  • Description: After the active phase of orthodontic treatment, retainers are used to hold the teeth in their new position. They can be removable or fixed and are an essential part of maintaining the results achieved through orthodontic treatment.
  • Best For: All orthodontic patients post-treatment to maintain results.
8. Headgear
  • Description: An external appliance used primarily in children and adolescents to correct bite and support proper jaw growth and alignment. It is usually worn for a specific number of hours each day.
  • Best For: Correcting severe bite discrepancies and promoting favorable jaw growth.
9. Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)
  • Description: Small titanium anchors are used in some orthodontic cases to help achieve tooth movement more efficiently and effectively. TADs serve as a fixed point from which to apply force to move teeth.
  • Best For: Complex cases requiring additional support for tooth movement.
10. Orthognathic Surgery
  • Description: Surgical repositioning of jaw bones to correct severe jaw discrepancies that cannot be addressed with braces alone. Often done in collaboration with orthodontic treatment for comprehensive care.
  • Best For: Adults with severe bite problems or jaw irregularities that require surgical correction.

Orthodontics

Benefits:

Orthodontic treatment offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved Smile Aesthetics: Orthodontic treatment can straighten crooked teeth, close gaps, and correct other aesthetic concerns, leading to a more attractive smile and enhanced self-confidence.
  • Better Oral Health: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems associated with misaligned teeth.
  • Enhanced Bite Function: Orthodontic treatment can correct bite issues, such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite, improving chewing efficiency, speech clarity, and overall oral function.
  • Prevention of Dental Problems: Addressing orthodontic issues early can help prevent more serious dental problems from developing later in life, such as tooth wear, jaw pain, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
  • Long-Term Stability: Orthodontic treatment aims to achieve stable and lasting results, providing patients with a well-aligned smile that can last a lifetime with proper maintenance.

Risks

While orthodontic treatment is generally safe and effective, there are some potential risks and considerations to be aware of, including:

  • Discomfort: Patients may experience temporary discomfort or soreness in the teeth, gums, and jaws, especially after appliance placement or adjustments.
  • Soft Tissue Irritation: Braces and other orthodontic appliances may cause irritation or sores on the lips, cheeks, or tongue until the mouth adjusts to their presence.
  • Increased Oral Hygiene Demands: Maintaining good oral hygiene becomes more challenging during orthodontic treatment, requiring patients to be diligent about brushing, flossing, and using specialized cleaning aids.
  • Risk of Tooth Decay: Food particles and plaque can accumulate around braces or under aligners, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum inflammation if oral hygiene is neglected.
  • Length of Treatment: Orthodontic treatment may require a significant time commitment, with treatment durations ranging from several months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting malocclusions – improperly positioned teeth and jaws that cause dental irregularities and abnormalities in facial development.

Treatment is recommended for issues like crowded or crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, misaligned jaws, or improper bites that can lead to problems with oral health and aesthetics.

Common appliances include metal or ceramic braces, clear aligners, headgear, retainers, expansion appliances, and functional appliances. The type used depends on each case.

The average treatment time with braces or aligners ranges from 1-3 years depending on the complexity of the case. Proper use speeds results.

There may be mild soreness and discomfort after adjustments to wires or aligners. Any pain is typically brief as the teeth get used to gradual movement.

Treatment can be done at any age, but many orthodontists recommend ages 8-14 while facial growth is optimal. However, adult orthodontics is also very common.

There are some diet restrictions with braces or aligners to avoid damage. However, patients can still eat a varied, healthy diet. Orthodontists provide guidance.
