Orthodontics Treatment

Malocclusion is a disorder in which the teeth are not properly aligned when the mouth is closed. Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that treats malocclusion. As a result, the bite is incorrect.

An orthodontist is a dentist who specializes in straightening teeth. Treatment can be cosmetic in nature, aimed at improving a person’s look, but it frequently also tries to improve oral function.

An orthodontist can perform work to fulfill the following goals:

  1. Filling up large gaps between teeth
  2. Straightening the teeth’s tips
  3. crooked teeth straightening
  4. Improving one’s capacity to speak or chew
  5. Improving the gums’ and teeth’s long-term health
  6. Preventing long-term severe tooth wear or trauma
  7. Taking care of a bad bite

Treatment not only improves the appearance of the teeth, but it can also improve chewing and speech performance and, in some situations, help preserve teeth from damage or decay.

The orthodontist uses a variety of medical dental equipment, like as headgear, plates, and braces, to achieve these aims.

Malocclusion can occur if the jaws and teeth do not develop properly. Teeth that are crooked and misaligned, as well as the bottom and top sets of teeth, may not line up.

Malocclusion is not a disease, and it has no physical consequences. It’s a change in the location of the teeth. However, it may have an embarrassing effect on the shape of the face and the appearance of the teeth, a lack of self-confidence, and even depression.

Reasons include injury to the teeth or facial bones and frequent thumb or finger sucking, among others.

Severe malocclusion might make it difficult to eat, speak, or keep your teeth clean. Orthodontic treatment can aid in the treatment or improvement of the following conditions:

  1. Protruding front teeth: Treatment can improve the appearance of the teeth while also protecting them from injury during sports or falls.
  2. Crowding: In a narrow jaw, all of the teeth may not be able to fit. One or more teeth may be extracted by the orthodontist.
  3. Impacted teeth: This occurs when an adult tooth does not erupt completely from the gum or bone.
  4. Asymmetrical teeth: When the mouth is closed but the teeth are visible, the upper and lower teeth do not match.
  5. Overbite or deep bite: When the upper teeth are clinched, they protrude too far over the lower ones.
  6. Reverse bite: When the teeth are clinched in the other direction.
  7. Reverse bite: When the upper teeth are clinched, they bite into the lower teeth.
  8. Open bite: There is a gap between the upper and lower teeth when the teeth are clamped.
  9. Underbite: Too far back in the upper teeth or too far forward in the lower teeth.
  10. Crossbite: When the teeth are clenched, at least one of the upper teeth does not fall down slightly in front of the lower teeth.
  11. Gaps or spaces between teeth: Gaps or spaces between teeth occur when a tooth is absent or when the teeth do not complete the mouth.

This is the polar opposite of suffocation. An orthodontist can also assist with issues such as teeth grinding or clenching, as well as jaw clicking or movement. The teeth and supporting bone can become misshapen as a result of thumb or finger sucking.

Before any orthodontic work can begin, it is necessary to maintain good oral hygiene. Food particles are more prone to become lodged when devices are placed on the teeth. During therapy, the person will need to brush considerably more carefully and frequently to avoid tooth decay.

There is a danger of tooth decay during therapy if you do not practice appropriate oral hygiene. The orthodontist may also advise you to avoid sugary drinks, snacks, and other foods that can cause tooth decay.
