What is Orthodontics?

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with improper positioning of teeth. A person may have an over bite, under bite, overcrowding of teeth, crooked teeth or a jaw misalignment—which could cause eating or speech problems. In such cases, orthodontic treatments are recommended to slowly change the positioning of the teeth to be straighter and more aligned. Orthodontics can also be used for cosmetic purposes if the person wishes to have a better smile.

A person may be born with malocclusion or a bad bite, or they may obtain it over time through injury or habits, such as sucking their thumb as a child. Whatever the problem may be, it is important to treat it right away. Malocclusion or a “bad bite” can be capable of causing you oral health problems in the long run.

Your Orthodontic Treatment Options

Your Orthodontic Treatment Options

There are several orthodontic treatment options that are offered by the 123Dentist.com Community Network to correct teeth and jaws that are misaligned or improperly positioned. This type of treatment involves a slight amount of pressure gradually being applied to your teeth, until they align to a certain position. Orthodontic treatment may take months or years to work effectively, depending on your specific set of needs and preferences.

Orthodontic treatment is important to your oral health because when your teeth are not properly aligned, you can easily miss cleaning certain parts of your mouth. The parts of your mouth that you miss cleaning are at a higher risk of tooth decay and plaque build-up, amongst other oral health problems. Having aligned teeth can also help you build confidence in your teeth and smile.
