What is Orthodontics?.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
A specialist in this field is called an orthodontist.
How do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?
Only your dentist or orthodontist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, an orthodontist or dentist can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that's right for you.
It is more beneficial for the patient to get checked by the dentist regularly during growth period so that alterations in the bone growth achieved by the orthodontist taking advantage of growth spurts (puberty) in both boys and girls & thus give patient very good facial profile. This intervention at early stages will potentially avoid surgical treatments for the skeletal deformities later after the growth is stopped.
If you or your child has irregular or malalignedteeth, then they may be brought to normal alignment or retracted by using straight wire technique within the shortest period of time.
The brackets used in straight wire technique are more comfortable for the patient and more precise in result than the conventional Begg’s technique.
