Orthodontics is concerned with the diagnosis, prevention, interception, guidance, and correction of misaligned bites.
Orthodontic treatments aim to create a healthy bite—straighter teeth that properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier to bite, chew, and speak properly.
Qualified Candidates for Orthodontics
This is usually when they’re about 12 years old but depends on the number of adult teeth that have grown, and the growth of their face and jaws.
Orthodontic treatment for adult patients can start at any age, but the treatment options are more limited.
Treatment will not start unless you have a good standard of oral hygiene, as treatment can increase the chance of developing tooth decay and gum problems.
If you have any of the following, you may be a qualified candidate for orthodontic treatment:
Types of Orthodontic Treatment
An orthodontist can carry out work that achieves the following:
- closing gaps between the teeth
- aligning the ends of the teeth
- straightening crooked teeth
- improving speech or chewing
- boosting the long-term health of teeth and gums
- preventing long-term wear or trauma of the teeth
- treating an improper bite
To achieve these goals, your orthodontist uses a range of medical dental devices, including headgear, plates, and braces.
