Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that is concerned with the development and management of irregularities and abnormalities in the teeth and jaws. If you have crooked teeth and/or a misaligned bite, there are a variety of treatments that can help straighten your teeth, including braces and retainers. If the patient decides to proceed with treatment, an appointment with orthodontists is needed to collect records.  The record includes the following

  • Impressions from which plaster models of the teeth are constructed.
  • X-rays of the teeth and jaws.
  • Photographs of the teeth and face.

Records allow the orthodontist to analyze each case accurately. They are also used to record the existing malocclusion for future reference. In some cases, a removable retainer will be all that’s necessary. In other rare cases especially when there is an extreme overbite or underbite, surgery may be necessary. In most cases, however, braces will be needed.

Generally, there are three types of braces that are

Orthodontics

1) Brackets: Made of stainless steel or tooth-colored ceramic or plastic, brackets are bonded to the front of each tooth. Ceramic or plastic brackets are often selected for cosmetic reasons. Plastic brackets may become stained and discolored by the end of treatment. Another disadvantage of ceramic or plastic brackets is that they cause more friction between the wire and brackets, which can increase treatment time.

2) Traditional bands: These are the generally outdated “full metal-mouth” look, which consists of the use of metal brackets soldered to metal bands that wrap around each tooth.

3) Lingual-type brackets: These are brackets that attach to the back of teeth, hiding the bracket from view.

Advantages of braces:

  • Straighten teeth
  • Correct an irregular bite
  • Close unsightly gaps
  • Bring teeth and lips into proper alignment
  • Better appearance of teeth, smile and face
