Intro to Orthodontics

Let’s guess! Your teeth don’t meet correctly when you bite because they’re crowded or crooked, and you need a permanent solution to this, right? You also might be worried about damaging your teeth and find it hard to keep them clean. Well, let’s introduce you to braces or orthodontics, which hold the key to ending your struggle!
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that aims at improving the alignment of crooked or crowded teeth and treating bite problems or malocclusion. Such problems can arise out of injuries, bad habits, or hereditary reasons.
The orthodontic treatment depends on using orthodontic devices, which can be fixed (such as braces) or removable (such as aligners, headgear, and retainers).

    Candidates for Orthodontics

    Dentists usually suggest orthodontic treatment for people with fully developed teeth. For children, this happens around 12 or 13 years. Your dentist may suggest orthodontic treatment for you in case you have one of the following problems:

    • Your upper teeth come behind the bottom instead of coming a front of them (underbite)
    • Your top and bottom front teeth don’t properly come up together (open bite)
    • Your top front teeth cover the lower front teeth too much (overbite)
    • One or more of your upper teeth don’t line up perfectly with your bottom teeth (crossbite)
    • The tops of your front teeth significantly protrude (overjet)

    Preparation for Orthodontics

    The dentist is often the first to notice malocclusion and misaligned teeth during a usual visit. They usually refer patients to a specialized “orthodontist” to get the necessary treatment. An orthodontist can perform the right examinations and provide the optimal consultation. To prepare you for orthodontic treatment, your orthodontist may do the following:
    • Perform a comprehensive oral exam
    • Take clinical photos of your teeth
    • Order X-ray imaging, especially panoramic (360 degrees) X-rays
    • Create molds (impressions) of your teeth

    Steps of Orthodontics

    Orthodontic treatment needs around 18 and 24 months to be completed, depending on the complexity of the problem. The steps of the treatment involve the following:

    1. Brace Placement

    The first appointment involves the placement of braces. This process requires time and patience and starts by providing a place to cement on the brackets to prepare the surface of the teeth and place the first wire. Based on predetermined positions, your orthodontist cements the brackets in place after priming your teeth.

    2. Wire Insertion

    To insert the first wire, your orthodontist cuts the right length of the wire and may insert bends into the wire to encourage faster movements for the teeth into the new positions. Furthermore, they place the wire into the brackets and close their doors.

    3. Wire Adjustment

    After 3-4 weeks, you must visit your orthodontist again to do the right adjustments. This process involves shortening the wire, inserting a new one, or bending it again. Patients usually need to visit their orthodontists repeatedly to adjust the wire to manipulate the teeth’s position in a different way as needed.

    4. Brace Removal

    Once your teeth occupied the right positions, your orthodontist finishes the treatment by removing the braces. Brace removal is usually simple and doesn’t involve any sort of pain.

    Recovery After Orthodontics

    Remember the following instructions during and after your orthodontic treatment:
    • Maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid certain sticky foods that can stuck under the braces.
    • Avoid foods and drinks with high sugar and hard foods that can break braces or the bond between the brackets.
    • Brush your teeth adequately, especially after lunch, to avoid damage to the enamel.
    • Use fluoride mouth rinses and interdental brushes to clean beneath the dental archwires.
    • Your orthodontist will give you a “retainer” after one to two weeks of brace removal to keep the stability of your teeth.
    • Wear the retainer all day during the first six months after brace removal. After this period, you can wear it only at night.

    Risks of Orthodontics

    Orthodontic treatment provides great advantages, but it also has some disadvantages that you need to be aware of. For instance, not all people get their desired outcome from the treatment. In addition, orthodontic treatment contributes to the following risks:

    • Tooth decay (if oral hygiene is neglected)
    • Dissolving of teeth’s roots
    • Gum inflammation
