ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS

Why Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment involves diagnosis, prevention, and correction of dental and facial irregularities occurring due to the following factors such as-

A bad bite or malocclusion
• Missing or extra teeth
• Misaligned, crowded or crooked teeth
• Maligned or incorrect jaw position

Orthodontics treatment can also be used to treat other health problems such as cleft lip and palate or cases of mild sleep apnoea. Orthodontics treatment can be started after most of the child’s adult teeth have started come through. The orthodontics treatment for adults can begin at any age with limited treatment options.

TYPES OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS

There are many different types of orthodontics treatment depending upon the state of the teeth and their development. The orthodontics treatment involves using appliances to correct the position of your teeth and this includes using-

Fixed Braces

These braces are non-removable made up of brackets that are glued to each tooth and are lined with wires. These fixed braces are made from stainless steel, ceramics (also known as tooth coloured braces).

Removable Braces

These braces are usually plastic plates that cover the roof of the mouth and clip on to some teeth with limited tooth movements. These braces can be taken out of the mouth for cleaning or when doing certain activities.

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners or invisible braces are one of the most convenient methods of straighten your teeth instead of using conventional metal braces. Invisalign braces are virtually invisible and do not irritate the gums or surrounding tissues compared to metal braces.
