Orthodontic Treatment Types

Aligners

Orthodontic aligners can straighten your teeth without the wires or brackets of traditional braces. Aligners use a series of clear, plastic, removable trays that fit over your teeth. You wear each aligner for a specified amount of time each day, usually about 20 hours a day for two weeks, before progressing to the next tray. Aligners can straighten your teeth in anywhere from six weeks to 18 months, depending on the severity of your teeth misalignment. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove aligners when you eat, brush, and floss. This type of treatment is most popular among adults and older teens who are worried about the aesthetic appearance of braces.

Dental Braces

Metal brackets, wires and bracket bands form the basis of orthodontic treatment. He or she may recommend braces for major orthodontic problems or if you want to quickly align your teeth and close gaps. Today’s high-tech braces are less noticeable than the braces of the past, and colorful elastic bands make braces more fun. While braces are most popular with young adolescents, adults also opt for braces to fix their smiles.

Two-Phase Orthodontics

Two-phase orthodontics prevents young patients from receiving serious orthodontic treatment later in life. It is recommended an evaluation by an orthodontist when your child is 7 or 8 years old to assess for problems that could benefit from early-stage treatment. This is because if early orthodontics are implemented while the teeth and jaw bone are still developing, orthodontic treatment will be easier and less severe.

What are the Advantages of Orthodontic Treatment?

The benefits of orthodontic treatment go beyond physical changes such as straighter teeth. It’s also an excellent way to change your overall self-image. Having straight and beautiful teeth is important, but even more important is the need to alleviate any potential health problems with your jaw or teeth.

Be aware that jaw problems or crooked teeth can cause tooth decay, tooth loss or gum disease. In addition, untreated orthodontic problems can cause digestive and chewing difficulties, speech disorders and unusual wear on tooth surfaces. Here are some of the benefits associated with orthodontic treatment:

Enhanced Oral Health: When your teeth are straightened, both your gum and dental health will improve significantly.

Self Confidence Boost: Feeling awkward about your appearance can sometimes make you hide your smile. Or withdrawing may prevent you from expressing simple joys. When speaking or laughing in public, you can cover your mouth and not smile in photos.

Tooth Protection: Problems with tooth alignment and jaw development may become apparent when the patient is very young. Early intervention can be beneficial in restoring the growth of their lower and upper jaws and creating space for their permanent teeth to erupt properly.

How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

Proper alignment of your jaw and teeth is important for healthy oral functions such as chewing, speaking and breathing. It can reduce tension and pressure on your jaw, reduce the likelihood of cavities and periodontal disease, and increase your self-confidence.
Orthodontic treatment addresses improper alignment (or malocclusion) and varies widely from patient to patient. Some treatments may take several months, while others may take several years. On average, typical treatment takes 12 to 36 months.

Before starting any treatment, your orthodontist will perform a comprehensive oral and facial examination along with x-rays, impressions and/or facial scans to determine your orthodontic treatment. Your personalized treatment plan will then be developed based on the current shape, placement and structure of your teeth, jaw and facial bones.

Can Orthodontic Treatment Be Done at All Ages?

Although orthodontics is thought to be a treatment for children or teenagers, it is a completely viable treatment even if you are an adult. So there is no age limit.

In the case of teenagers, the concern of parents is the minimum age at which they should start treatment, although at first glance this treatment may not be needed, it is recommended that the first examination be done at the age of 6 years.

Adults, on the other hand, have a greater mystery because many of them don’t think it’s an appropriate treatment for them. But this idea is completely wrong, there is no age limit for treatment and there are many hospitals and clinics that provide adult orthodontic services.
