What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of teeth and jaws. The goal of orthodontic treatment is to improve the function and appearance of your teeth while also promoting good oral health. Orthodontic treatment can involve the use of braces, clear aligners, and other appliances to straighten teeth and correct bite problems.
Traditional braces are made up of metal brackets and wires that are attached to your teeth. The brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth and connected with a wire that runs through them. Braces gradually move your teeth into their correct positions over time. They are typically worn for about 12-18 months, although the length of treatment can vary depending on your specific needs.
Clear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces. They are made of clear plastic and are designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them an excellent choice for adults who want to improve their smiles without the look of traditional braces. Clear aligners are typically worn for 20-22 hours daily and are changed every 1-2 weeks.
Types of Bite Problems
Orthodontic treatment can correct a wide range of bite problems, including:
When the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth too much
When the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth
When the upper and lower teeth do not meet correctly
When there is a gap between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed
