Dentistry is the special branch of medicine which deals with the whole of the oral cavity.
Straight teeth and aligned jaws
Orthodontics from the appearance point of view
The orthodontists take care of aligning the teeth and jaws. They help our smile get better and become more beautiful. Obviously, a smile both makes someone proud and gives them confidence. It is very important for each and every person to shine in this competitive world.
Apart from cosmetic braces reasons, straight teeth also have medical benefits. There is less chance for decay, gum disease, and risk of injury. Some of the problems like overbite, and/or cross bite, can create other problems like pain in the muscles around the mouth, neck pain, shoulder pain, and headaches.
The orthodentist can use braces to straighten the teeth structure. These braces are interconnected with a metal string which is tightened to make the teeth straight and the patient should wear it for one to two years. After the teeth return to their normal position, retainers are used to maintain the latter.
Such teeth problems can easily be treated in the childhood stage instead of the teen or adult one. The bones are softer and more flexible when compared to the adult stage. It is the first doctor visit, recommended around the age of 5, 6 or 7 years, that will determine whether or not the child needs orthodontic treatment.
The habit of having routine dental checkups should be taught at a very young age. Once we start taking our kids for a routine dental examination, at least once every three months or so, this habit will be ingrained in them and they will continue to do this even into adulthood and the practice will continue. With so many solutions available in the field of orthodontics, one must make the best use of them.
Orthodontics for adults
Overlapping teeth, misaligned, too advanced… There is no age limit for orthodontic care. The indications for adult orthodontics are identical to those for children. The particularities are more in the origin of the problem than in the cause of the consultation. For example, tooth aging and tooth loss (due to cavities or periodontal disease) can more often be the cause of orthodontic problems.
The purpose of orthodontics can be aesthetic, but our teeth are essential for chewing. Poor positioning can prevent this essential function and can even handicap phonation… In addition, orthodontics can prevent future dental problems by positioning teeth correctly, which facilitates brushing and thus the plaque removal, the prevention of decay…
In short, what is functional is generally aesthetic while the opposite is not true. Adult orthodontics is often necessary but is never essential: you can lose teeth, have overlapping teeth without it being a disease in the medical sense of the word…. But, for a good quality of life and for social reasons, it is easy to understand the importance of having a harmonious dentition.
