A dentist with additional training in addressing jaw abnormalities, bite problems, and tooth misalignment is known as an orthodontist. Orthodontists are in charge of assisting kids, teens, and adults in achieving their finest smiles.
Here are some important facts about orthodontists and who benefits most from their care.
When it’s clear that teeth are erupting crookedly, many parents seek orthodontic treatment for their kids. In addition to reducing discomfort when eating, correcting the smile can assist in boosting self-esteem. Conversely, unaddressed bites may result in the teeth wearing incorrectly, which could be painful.
Many people value having a smile that is aesthetically beautiful, even if the position of their teeth doesn’t affect their ability to eat or speak. First impressions are frequently based on your grin when you meet someone for the first time. People who pass judgement quickly frequently stigmatise those who have crowded or crooked teeth.
Orthodontic treatment is also available for adults, despite the fact that historically children and teens have made up the bulk of orthodontic patients. Due to the ease with which teeth can be moved into appropriate alignment while a child’s mouth is still developing, children are more frequently seen in the orthodontist’s clinic.
Orthodontic treatment is still available for adults, but it may require more effort or take a little longer. Our orthodontists will also need to take into account age-related conditions that don’t affect kids, like marginal bone loss.
In order to offer the patient the finest smile possible, a skilled orthodontist evaluates the patient’s teeth and jaws to decide what has to be fixed. An orthodontist may use imprints or X-rays to better understand the extent of your tooth misalignment while arranging your treatment.
With this knowledge, the orthodontist develops a workable strategy and communicates it to their patients. Each patient’s treatment plan is different, but generally speaking, most people wear braces for 1-3 years until the desired look has been achieved
Depending on the patient’s preference and the degree of treatment required, patients are equipped with either metal or ceramic braces. Your teeth will be put under enough pressure by the braces over time to shift toward their ideal alignment. Each time you visit, our orthodontists will make a little adjustment to ensure that your teeth move as intended.
Our orthodontists also provide Invisalign® clear aligners if you’ve indicated a desire for a more covert orthodontic procedure. The majority of patients see the desired improvements in 12–18 months after wearing aligners 20–22 hours each day. The need for orthodontic appliances may also be determined by our orthodontists.
