What is Orthodontic?
Orthodontics is a part of dentistry that corrects a patient's teeth and jaw structure to improve your smile. For example, dental issues, such as crooked or crowded teeth, can hamper your smile, chewing, and health in general.
Further, misaligned teeth put additional pressure on the gums, teeth, and jaw joints, leading to temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and severe migraines.
Every year, many kids and grown-ups decide to start their orthodontic treatment, and there are various types of orthodontic treatments to choose from. Your decision relies upon which treatment is best for you, and each approach has its own advantages.
Below, we have discussed the different types of orthodontic problems.
What are the different types of orthodontic issues?
A crossbite is a dental condition where the upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth when your mouth is closed. It can affect the teeth' cosmetic appearance and cause jaw problems, teeth grinding, and abnormal facial development.
Crowding happens due to a lack of space for all the teeth to fit appropriately within the jaws. It is one of the main reasons people visit our clinic, Everest Dental Solutions in Andheri, Mumbai, for orthodontic treatment.
Crowded teeth are difficult to floss and can cause tooth decay. Dr. Jyotsna Anjankar suggests early interventions as it can help children from not developing more severe problems later.
Spacing is the excessive gaps between your teeth. It may cause tooth decay or gingivitis as more gum area is exposed to the bacteria.
Malocclusion (Bite) :
An improper bite implies your upper and lower teeth do not meet accurately when you bite. It can affect the appearance of your teeth and even the shape of your face.
There are several types of malocclusion, such as open bite, underbite, and deep bite. According to Dr. Jyotsna Anjankar, most patients with these kinds of bite issues prematurely wear out their teeth and frequently need more dental care as they age.
Improper eruption :
Improper eruption often happens when there is a blockage caused by the baby teeth, due to which permanent tooth cannot grow correctly.
To fix this problem, our orthodontist may suggest braces, aligners, or extraction. Undergoing early screening at around eight years helps as this issue can be easily corrected or prevented if caught early.
Impacted teeth :
An impacted tooth is one that has been blocked from breaking through the gum. It usually happens to the wisdom teeth causing pain. It can also affect canines due to crowded teeth. Early expansion of jaws helps by preventing impactions.
Now let’s discuss the different orthodontic treatments you can avail of at Everest Dental Solutions, a hi-tech dental clinic in Andheri, Mumbai.
Types of Orthodontic Treatment
Dr. Jyotsna Anjankar, a proficient dentist in Andheri, Mumbai, will recommend the best orthodontic treatment depending on your issue, the severity of the problem, age, and budget.
Braces are the mainstay of orthodontic treatment. Our orthodontist may suggest braces if you want to align your teeth or close the gaps between them.
Today’s superior braces wires are less detectable, and children love to experiment with colorful elastic bands. Generally, braces are more popular among teenagers and young adults, but nowadays, many adults opt for braces to correct their smiles.
Two-Phase Orthodontics :
Two-phase orthodontics is beneficial for younger patients as it prevents them from needing severe orthodontic treatment when they grow up.
Get your child assessed by our orthodontist when they are 7 or 8 for issues that could be resolved with early-phase treatment. The implementation of orthodontic treatment will be less severe and less uncomplicated as the teeth and jawbones are still developing.
Phase 1 treatment includes expanders and other dental appliances that help create more space in the jaw for incoming teeth. In the long run, it reduces the need for tooth extraction or jaw surgery in the future.
Phase 2 treatment will start when all the adult teeth have come, and it includes the use of braces and aligners.
With orthodontic aligners, we can straighten your teeth without the wires or brackets of conventional braces. Aligners utilize a progression of removable, clear, plastic trays that fit over your teeth.
You wear each aligner for a specific duration every day, usually around 20 hours per day for about fourteen days, prior to advancing to the next tray.
Aligners can straighten your teeth within 12 to 18 months, depending on your teeth misalignment.
In contrast to conventional braces, you can remove aligners when you eat, brush, and floss. This treatment is highly popular among adults and college-going children who stress about the braces' aesthetic appearance.
We at Everest Dental Solutions offer Invisalign, one of the most preferred treatments worldwide.
Sure Smile Technology :
With braces and aligners, Dr. Jyotsna Anjankar at Everest Dental Solutions has executed a plan to make orthodontics quicker and more precise than conventional techniques.
We use 3D-imaging, modern technology, and computer-aided smile design to produce beautiful smiles efficiently.
