Orthodontists provide treatment for issues like under or overbites and crowded or misaligned teeth. The most common treatment offered by an orthodontist is braces and these can bem prescribed for adults and children alike. Fixed braces are normally made from metal, sometimes referred to as 'train track' braces and will be visible on the front of your teeth. However, it is also possible to have clear braces such as Invisalign fitted, or even braces that have been fitted to the back of your teeth, though both these options usually attract an additional cost. Braces can help resolve both crowded and misaligned teeth and though treatment time is extended, the results are permanent.
After you've had braces removed, you will need to wear a retainer. Retainers are usually worn at night and work to maintain the movement caused by the braces. An orthodontic specialist will be able to provide you with a retainer as well as advice on how long you will need to wear it and how to keep it clean. If you do not wear your retainer as advised by your dental professional you may find that the good work done by your braces is undone.
Although the changes made by administering braces are permanent, remember that further movement in the positioning of your teeth will occur throughout your lifetime and is completely natural. This is why some adults require braces who did not need them as children.
The length of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case. On average, orthodontic treatment takes about 12 to 24 months, but some cases may take longer.
While orthodontic treatment can cause some discomfort, it should not be painful. After adjustments, you may experience soreness or tenderness, but this should subside within a few days.
You will need to visit the orthodontist regularly throughout your treatment for adjustments and progress checks. Typically, patients every 4-6 weeks.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, primarily concerning misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment involves the use of braces, aligners, or other dental appliances to gradually move teeth into proper alignment.
