What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the correction of crooked teeth and other jaw and bite defects. Orthodontic equipment is worn in the mouth, and slowly shifts the teeth into proper place.

For best results, orthodontic treatment should be started at an early age. We recommend signing your child up for an orthodontic evaluation as young as seven years old. The orthodontic evaluation includes assessment of the teeth’s alignment, jaw growth, and bite capacity among other things.

Common Reasons For Orthodontic Treatments

The following are the common reasons for getting an orthodontic treatment:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Bruxism
  • Wide spaces in between teeth
  • Speech difficulty
  • TMJ diseases

Upon evaluation, your dentist will tell you if you have any dental problem that needs an orthodontic treatment. At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, we make sure to fully educate our patients about their conditions, including the nature of the condition, how it affects everyday life, possible dental problems resulting from it, and what we can do to help.

Benefits Of Orthodontics

Orthodontics is an amazing dental treatment that not only perfects your teeth’s look, but also offers other amazing benefits:

  • Corrects malocclusion or bite/jaw defects
  • Promotes correct jaw growth
  • Treats destructive oral habits such as thumb sucking
  • Improves speech
  • Improves face structure
  • Prevents development of dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease

The Orthodontic Procedure

Treatment begins with an evaluation of your mouth and your jawbone. Your bite capacity will be among the things checked. X- rays may be taken for best results. The result of the evaluation will help your dentist craft your orthodontic treatment plan.

The orthodontic treatment plan includes how long the equipment will stay in your mouth and if there are other procedures that should be done such as extraction.

After the plan is created, your dentist will explain it to you. This is the best time to ask questions and share your doubts if you have any. We are more than happy to guide you every step of the way, and make sure that you are 100% comfortable with the process.
