Orthodontics is a branch of dental medicine that uses modern methods to arrange the position of teeth in the mouth, regulate the alignment of the jaws and thereby facial development. Orthodontic treatment is carried out using various appliances such as braces, retainers and headgears. An ideal arrangement of the teeth is ensured by using precision-crafted brackets to which an archwire is attached, which exerts pressure on the teeth and moves them to their ideal position. This is made possible by the fact that the bone surrounding and keeping the teeth in the gums is flexible and can be reshaped.
5 reasons for orthodontic treatment:
A correct positioning of teeth and jaw alignment allows us to achieve an aesthetic appearance that favours positive self-image and the attitude of others towards you. Beautiful looking teeth are a reflection of your inner beauty.
In order to ensure the balance of the entire masticatory system, the teeth must be positioned correctly one to another. The chewing of foods when the teeth are positioned incorrectly is more difficult, and the wear of the teeth greater. Excessive pressure is applied to certain areas that will cause permanent damage to the teeth, increased incline of the teeth and, ultimately, the loss of a tooth.
A correct positioning of the teeth allows for better pronunciation.
If the teeth are positioned correctly, they are easier to brush and floss. When the brushing is impeded or when the teeth are positioned in the manner that forms many gaps in which dental plaque and food residue accumulate, they present a greater risk of developing caries and gum inflammation.
When the teeth are moved to the correct position and the jaws align one to another, this enables use with minimal wear, which means that the teeth will remain in your mouth for a long time coming. Protect your teeth from early prosthetic treatment.
