What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is systematically planned correction of malaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment is a way of aligning straight or moving teeth, to improve the look of the teeth. It also helps to look after the long term health of your teeth and jaw joints, by dividing the biting pressure equally over all your teeth.

Why do you need orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is necessary not just to improve the positions and alignment of teeth which improves the appearance of a person, but also for better function of the jaws with respect to each other and the jaw joint. It also improves speech functionality.

Orthodontic treatment manages to :

  • close wide gaps between the teeth

  • align the tips of the teeth

  • straighten crooked teeth

  • improve speech or chewing ability

  • boost the long-term health of gums and teeth

  • treat an improper bite

  • prevent  excessive wear or grinding of the teeth in long term

How does orthodontic treatment work?

Before the dentist starts the orthodontic treatment, he will do a thorough evaluation of your chewing pattern, teeth alignment, take your impressions and study your models and also evaluate your OPG or CBCT.  Then your dentist will plan your treatment. Your dentist might recommend extraction of one or more teeth as per your case and schedule you for putting braces.

The first appointment when braces are put is a long one, it might take around an hour or more. In this appointment, specific spots on your teeth are etched and braces are cemented on to those predecided spots.

Next, wires are applied between the braces. Your orthodontic bends the wires in various patterns so as to adjust the force applied on various teeth as per the movement of respective teeth required.

You are called for an adjustment appointment after 3 to 4 weeks.

This time, the orthodontist re-bends the wire or puts a stronger wire to modify the force acting on your teeth.

Every further visit will be after an interval wherein your orthodontist will adjust the force by the wire put on your teeth to guide their desired movements.
