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.
