Orthodontics is a specialty in dentistry, which helps diagnose, prevent and treat misaligned teeth, jaws and malocclusions (improper bites). Problems such as crowded teeth, spaced teeth, deep bite, open bite, cross bite, missing teeth, thumb sucking, speech difficulties, grinding or clenching of teeth or clicking of the jaws by opening and closing, require orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic problems can be detected as early as seven years of age or even earlier. An early examination allows noticing these problems and a better planning of the appropriate treatment. The early treatment often reduces the effort of the later alignment of permanent teeth and set up the chance to treat dental crowding without extractions of permanent teeth. The strategy of our treatment is first to build up Neuromuscular balance by jaw development and alignment of posture then straighten teeth. Successful and stable Orthodontic treatment results are more than just straightening teeth.
Orthodontic treatment can be performed at any age, successfully. In severe cases of malocclusion in adults, because the facial bones don't grow anymore, the correction with braces alone are not possible. In these cases, a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment would be the best treatment option.
An attractive smile with straight teeth improves self-confidence and self-esteem, aside from this, having aligned teeth will help to improve your oral condition also. Well-aligned teeth make it possible to follow good oral hygiene routine and reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. A misaligned bite can cause grinding and clenching of the teeth, which can lead to tooth wear and pain in the jaw joint area, headaches, ear noise, dizziness, nausea and back pain. Also, difficulties to speak properly can be related to misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment involves the design and use of corrective appliances such as braces, lingual braces, removable plates and functional appliances, aligners, retainers to bring the teeth and jaws into proper alignment.
Orthodontic Treatment for Children
More than half of teeth & jaw misalignments are originated after birth. The reason for that could be a pacifier, extended thumb sucking, wrong swallowing patterns or a restricted upper airway. Also, after the early loss of baby teeth, an orthodontic treatment can be necessary as early as 4 years of age.
Waiting for the completion of permanent teeth eruption to reduce the treatment time may result in serious disadvantages for the child.
After 10 years of age, 90% of the growth of the upper jaws are completed. An incorrect jaw position can cause major asymmetries. This can affect important functions in the oral cavity and can have a negative effect on the neck, shoulder and back.
Orthodontic Treatment for Adolescents
As our Orthodontic experts have been seeing patients at our clinic for almost 10 years, their well-known expertise has been requested for many second opinion consultations. In particular, dysfunction with Temporomandibular joint pain and Aesthetic perfection are often reasons for secondary treatment. Usually, the orthodontic treatment should be carried out as early as possible and not after the eruption of all permanent teeth. Earlier, the gentle transformation of the dental arches and the corrective influence of the growth, secure an orthodontic treatment without the removal of permanent teeth. In these cases, an optimal breathing through the nose, the improving of tongue function and head posture will influence the long-term success in harmonizing the position of the teeth and jaw. Our experience shows that young patients at puberty or shortly thereafter feel self-conscious with fixed braces. In these cases, "invisible braces" are a perfect solution. In the case of small misalignments transparent trays (Aligners) can be used and in extensive correction cases, solid inner braces are used (lingual treatment). Our Orthodontists, Dr. Sostmann and Dr. De Zutter both hold a master's degree in Lingual Orthodontics, the only Orthodontists in the Middle East. Sometimes this method is the only way to ensure nice smiles without having conflicts at home about accepting a "metallic" smile.
Orthodontic Treatment of Adults
An attractive smile and white teeth are the symbols of being young and successful.
Very often adults are disturbed by their misaligned teeth as they have missed orthodontic treatment during childhood. Asymmetric smiles, gaps between the teeth, different length of the teeth are reasons for dental unattractiveness and reduced confidence in smiling.
An orthodontic treatment can improve the quality of life dramatically. With healthy gum conditions, it is possible to correct any misalignment of teeth. After an exact diagnosis with the help of diagnostic casts measurements, radiological and functional analysis the orthodontic treatment can be completed within two years.
Apart from the esthetic reasons, most of the orthodontic treatments for adults are due to functional reasons, like Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, headaches, ear noise or back pain.
A lot of tooth replacement treatments and implantations can be done only after correction of tooth position and after orthodontically opening of closed or too small gaps as a result of early tooth loss or extraction.
The treatment options available today are much easier and more comfortable for the patients. Invisible aligners to move the teeth can be a great alternative for patients, who want to avoid visible braces.
Modern ceramic braces and super elastic white wires or even better individually fabricated inner braces (Lingual Braces) can help adults to match the treatment to their lifestyle with a minimum treatment time.
