Improper Bite – Not a Reason for Embarrassment Anymore

Improper bites or Malocclusions are one of the most common problems that people face. Improper bites are often a cause of embarrassment. A nice smile is an important asset for people and an improper bite ruins it. Most people are scared of visiting a dentist and therefore suffer with this defect all their lives.

What is Orthodontic?

Orthodontics or Orthodontia is a specialization in dentistry which deals with the treatment and study of malocclusions or improper bites. The root causes of malocclusions are disproportionate jaw relationships, irregularity of teeth or both. Orthodontic treatments are completely focused on dental displacements; they also are concerned with modification and controls of facial growth (dentofacial orthopaedics). This treatment is completely meant for aesthetic reasons i.e. for the improvement of the appearance of teeth. However, some dentists also have expertise on reconstructing a person’s whole face. Nowadays modern technology is being used for orthodontic treatments. Three Dimensional Dental Models for Computer Automated Treatment Simulation is now being used to determine the treatment that is required for a patient. These software provide a very detailed analysis and they are efficient and cost-effective methods for orthodontic treatments.

Orthodontic Diagnosis and Treatment Planning

An Orthodontist while diagnosing a malocclusion ascertains the characteristics of the dentofacial deformity. He further defines the problem which includes the etiology. Based on these reports he determines the strategy which needs to be employed for the specific patient. He then discusses with the patient, the treatment he would be carrying out. After his approval he moves ahead with the treatments.

Methods of Orthodontic Treatments

Although it may seem complicated, it is a very simple procedure, for complete orthodontic treatment metal wires are inserted into orthodontic brackets. These brackets are either made of ceramic material or stainless steel. These wires interact with the brackets and get the teeth into the desired positions. Apart from this two more methods are employed in Orthodontical treatments ,apart from using braces, there are some more components that can be used for Orthodontical treatments; these include removable appliances, headgear, expansion appliances. These are used to move teeth and jaw bones, and align them perfectly. Also, for patients in growing age, functional appliances are used for modifying jaw relationships and dimensions. This particular therapy is known as Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dentofacial therapy is frequently followed by fixed multibracket therapy for aligning teeth and refining occlusion.
