What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics focuses on correcting bite defects and jaw problems. Orthodontic equipment, once placed onto the teeth, moves the teeth into their proper and ideal place, addressing a number of possible dental issues along the way.

For best results, orthodontic treatment should begin early in life. Children aged around seven should be given an orthodontic evaluation. This assesses your child’s bite capacity, and analyses potential problems.

Common Reasons For Orthodontic Treatments

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Wide spaces between teeth
  • Speech problems
  • Bruxism
  • TMJ disorders

  • Promote correct growth of the jaw
  • Improve speech
  • Correct bad oral habits (thumb-sucking)

Orthodontic Options At Western Clinic Dental

Invisalign.

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment because it makes use of clear polyurethane, or virtually-invisible aligners custom-made for each patient. The removable Invisalign trays discreetly shift crooked teeth into their ideal position. Each tray is worn for two weeks and should stay in the mouth around 20-22 hours a day. They should only be removed during eating, brushing, and rigorous sports activities.

Metal braces.

Stainless steel brackets are sued to straighten the teeth. They are visible and create a “train track’ look in their wearers. Today, the braces are smaller, making them less noticeable and more comfortable than before.

Porcelain braces.

These braces are made of materials that closely match the shade of your teeth. The tooth-coloured brackets blend with the rest of your natural teeth.

The Orthodontic Procedure

The dentist will examine you or your child’s mouth (the jaw and bite included). X-ray and impressions may also be taken. The result will help your dentist create an orthodontic treatment plan for you or your child.

You dentist will discuss the plan and how to take care of teeth before starting the treatment. In some cases, particularly with crowded teeth, extraction may be needed. Rest assured that everything will be explained during the process. Feel free to ask questions so your Torrensville dentist can help you.
