Definition of Orthodontic Treatment:
Orthodontic treatment is a medical intervention performed by an orthodontist (a dentist qualified to treat problems of the teeth and jaws) to treat and correct irregular teeth (crooked), misaligned jaws, uneven bites, and other related issues.
The orthodontist will use an appliance called orthodontics (dental braces) to correct the alignment of the teeth. Some conditions may require medical care that is more advanced and necessitate surgical intervention using jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) to achieve the appropriate correction.
Causes of Teeth Misalignment:
Several factors may affect the teeth arrangement, particularly, which influence the teeth during growth:
There are five types of orthodontics, which offer several treatment options that can meet your needs and preferences.
1- Metal Braces:
Metal braces are the most commonly used and affordable type of orthodontics. With current advances in treatment technology, we offer metal braces in the most effective and comfortable way to realign crowded teeth and restore healthy dental function.
Understanding the essential parts of orthodontics will help you gain a comprehensive understanding of how they work. Dental braces mainly consist of the following parts:
During your treatment journey, the orthodontist will make several adjustments (usually every 4-8 weeks) on the wire to move and straighten the teeth to the desired degree.
2- Ceramic Braces:
Ceramic braces provide an affordable option for patients who want an orthodontic that is less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces components are similar to metal braces and are attached to the frontal surface of the teeth, but their brackets are tooth-colored. However, the brackets may stain based on your diet (colored foods and drinks), which affects their aesthetic advantage.
3- Self-ligating Braces:
Self-ligating braces are available in metal or ceramic. Compared to traditional braces, they work a lot like them, with the main difference being that tiny clips are used instead of ligature bands to attach the wire to the bracket. These clips will facilitate and shorten the time needed to adjust the wire on subsequent appointments.
4- Lingual Braces:
Lingual braces offer a treatment option for patients who are looking for invisible orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, an orthodontist with experience in lingual braces will attach the brackets to the inner surface of the teeth rather than the front surface. It may cause some changes in your speech until you get along with the appliance.
5- Clear Aligners:
Clear aligners (Invisalign) are becoming a popular treatment option for mild to moderate dental alignment problems. Many patients prefer clear aligners, as they are transparent and removable appliances. If you would like a clear aligner to correct your dental problem, Infinity Smiles Clinic is the perfect place you are looking for.
Orthodontic Treatment Procedure:
1) Initial Oral and Teeth Assessment:
Orthodontist treatment may differ among patients. Therefore, during the first appointment, our experts will carefully evaluate your teeth manually and through X-ray images to tailor the treatment plan for your condition. Adults may also need a referral to a general dentist to treat any existing teeth or gum diseases.
In this stage, you and your orthodontist can discuss the treatment options available and the type of braces that will be most suitable for your needs.
2) Placement of Dental Braces:
At your next visit, the orthodontist will:
3) Treatment Interval:
4) Taking off the Dental Braces:
Once your teeth reach the degree of alignment and correction required, the orthodontist will remove the braces in a simple process and clean your teeth from the remaining cement.
Usually, your orthodontist will recommend that you use a dental retainer to support the new position of your teeth.
Maintaining Oral Hygiene with Orthodontic:
