What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating dental, jaw, and facial abnormalities. Orthodontic treatments assist in jaw development in young children, which helps the teeth grow in the correct position. Additionally, orthodontic treatment for adults can correct existing dental misalignment, irregularities in bite, and jaw disorders. With orthodontic treatments, you can achieve a healthier mouth structure and a more impressive appearance. If you are considering orthodontic treatment and have any doubts, you can continue reading our article.

Why Do Orthodontic Problems Occur?

Orthodontic treatment is needed in situations such as:

• Patients having an underbite or overbite

• Skeletal irregularities

• Mismatched jaw structure

These problems mostly occur due to incorrect placement of teeth and jaw during development. These abnormalities that affect a person’s appearance and mouth structure require dental braces and various dental treatments.

Other factors that contribute to the formation of orthodontic problems include:

• Excessive use of pacifiers and baby bottles

• Thumb sucking

• Early loss of baby teeth

• Delayed shedding of baby teeth

What are Orthodontic Treatment Methods?

Orthodontic treatment is carried out in several stages. Firstly, during a dental examination, discrepancies in the teeth are identified, usually in the form of crooked or overcrowded teeth. The dentist then informs the patient about the treatment process and determines which treatment method to proceed with. The preparation stage then begins, where hygiene is emphasized. Oral care is carried out, and any decay present in the mouth is treated before proceeding with the treatment.

There are multiple options available during orthodontic treatment, and the process varies from patient to patient depending on their dental and jaw structure. In some cases, tooth extraction may be required due to a narrow mouth. Orthodontic treatment is carried out using fixed or removable appliances applied to the teeth or jawbone. The type of appliance is determined by the patient’s needs rather than their preference.

The following are some of the orthodontic treatments available:

Removable Appliances: This method is commonly used in children between the ages of 7 and 12, and it helps with jaw development.

Metal Braces: These are the most commonly used appliances in orthodontic treatments. Metal brackets are individually attached to the teeth, and wires pass through them to move the teeth into the correct position.

Clear Braces: These braces are designed using tooth-colored or completely transparent materials and work on the same principle as metal braces. The biggest difference is that they are less noticeable than metal braces. However, clear braces require more maintenance and are generally preferred by adults.

Lingual Braces: These are fixed metal braces attached to the inside surface of the teeth, making them invisible from the outside. The treatment process is longer due to the difference in technique.

Invisalign: This treatment method aims to correct dental problems using transparent aligners. The teeth are gradually corrected using the aligners, which are not visible from the outside. The aligners are removed while eating and brushing teeth but must be worn at all other times. This method is only suitable for patients with dental problems and should not be used for jaw and facial abnormalities.

Why is Orthodontic Treatment Necessary?

Orthodontic treatment is not just for aesthetic concerns as commonly believed.

On the contrary, it:

• Prevents gum diseases that may occur in the future,

• Eliminates problems in the jaw joint,

• Provides functionality in chewing,

• Resolves speech problems in individuals.

At What Age Does Orthodontic Treatment Start?

There is no age limit for orthodontic treatments. Individuals of all ages can receive orthodontic treatment. However, treating teeth during the developmental stage offers significant advantages. Therefore, the ages between 9 and 14 can be considered the most suitable for orthodontic treatment.

What Should Be Considered During the Orthodontic Treatment Process?

The most important aspect to consider during orthodontic treatment is dental care. Regular brushing of teeth and detailed cleaning of the brackets after each brushing is necessary. This is because brackets have a design that is suitable for food residue and bacterial buildup. In addition to brushing teeth, it is necessary to clean the brackets and the spaces between the teeth with dental floss or interdental brushes once a day. Regular dental check-ups are also essential. Although the treatment process varies from patient to patient, failing to attend appointments and neglecting necessary care can cause the treatment process to be prolonged.

I asked a simple question about what the cost of crowns is. They refused to answer on WhatsApp. I know it's just preliminary information, but they didn't provide it.
