Orthodontic Treatment - Star Dental Clinic

Orthodontic Treatment

What is orthodontic treatment?

  • Orthodontic treatments are dental procedures that help to straighten your teeth and correct problems with your bite.
  • You might need orthodontic treatment for many reasons.
  • The orthodontist will examine your mouth and face, and take x-rays, or make plaster or digital models of your teeth.
  • Treatment often involves using appliances called braces to straighten crooked teeth or to correct problems with your bite.

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

Increased confidence – If your child is being teased at school for the way his or her teeth look then orthodontic treatment will benefit them psychologically and increase their confidence.

It’s also true that an adult who is conscious of their protruding teeth or misaligned smile, will find their confidence soars through the roof once their teeth have been put back into their correct position.

Facilitates oral hygiene – Teeth that are crowded or misaligned are difficult to clean and if particles of food get trapped then this can lead to decay and possible tooth loss. A visit to an orthodontist will help children and adults maintain better oral hygiene through having their teeth aligned properly and being able to brush and floss with ease.

Improves functionality – People suffering with misaligned teeth or a bad bite, may well struggle with biting and chewing their food. This can lead to problems such as a limited diet and bad digestion. By correcting misalignments and bite issues, not only does it look better aesthetically but a person can eat a wider variety of foods and digest them properly, leading to better overall health.

Better long term health of teeth and gums – Straight teeth are easier to clean and less prone to the risk of trauma and injury. It’s considerably easier to remove plaque and bacteria from the teeth when the toothbrush can reach most of the smooth surfaces of the teeth. Severe crowding can lead to decay, gum disease and erosion of the bones which hold the teeth in place.

Improves wear on teeth – Bad bites and misaligned teeth can lead to teeth being subjected to uneven force distribution and wear patterns which can lead to visible wear and tear of the teeth. Sometimes excessive strain on the supporting gums and bone tissues can affect the joints of the jaw leading to headaches.

Orthodontic treatment can improve dental health as it improves your looks. Straight, well-aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain. Correcting orthodontic problems can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss. With a smile that’s truly healthy, you feel better about yourself and your interactions with others.
