When to Consult an Orthodontist: Indications for Consultation

Indications for orthodontic treatment include irregularities in the position of the teeth and jaws such as crooked teeth, overlapping teeth, open bite, deep bite, crossbite, and other bite and appearance issues. You should consult an orthodontist if you notice any irregularities in the position of your teeth or if you have difficulties with speaking, chewing, or swallowing.

Types of Orthodontic Braces

There are different types of orthodontic braces, including fixed and removable, chosen according to the specific needs of the patient and the complexity of the case. Fixed braces are permanently attached to the teeth, while removable braces can be taken out, providing greater flexibility in daily oral hygiene maintenance.

Fixed Braces

Fixed orthodontic braces are a traditional but highly effective method for correcting dental and jaw irregularities. These braces consist of brackets, wires, and elastic bands that apply pressure to the teeth to move them into the desired position. An individual treatment plan is designed considering each patient’s needs and goals. Fixed braces enable precise alignment of the teeth and require regular check-ups with the orthodontist.

Removable Braces

Removable orthodontic braces are a more flexible option for patients seeking minor orthodontic corrections or control of tooth growth and development. These braces are easy to remove and reinsert, facilitating oral hygiene maintenance and adapting to various life situations. Their adaptability makes them a popular choice for both children and adults.

Proper maintenance of removable braces is crucial for their effectiveness and longevity. This includes regular cleaning of the braces and avoiding foods that may damage or stain them.

Myofunctional Appliances

Myofunctional appliances are specifically designed to influence oral functions such as breathing, swallowing, and speech. These appliances target changes in muscle tone and tongue function, often using mechanisms like tongue guards and lip retainers to promote proper movement patterns. They are primarily used in children to correct poor oral habits that can affect the development of teeth and jaws.

Maintaining Orthodontic Braces

Maintaining orthodontic braces involves regular cleaning of both the teeth and the braces, avoiding hard and sticky foods, and wearing protective mouthguards during sports activities. Regular visits to the orthodontist are crucial for monitoring the progress of the treatment.

Braces Adjustment

During the treatment, you will need to attend regular check-ups with the orthodontist. During these visits, the orthodontist will adjust the braces to achieve the desired result.
