What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses upon position and alignment of a person’s teeth. An orthodontist is an individual who will,by checking your teeth, determine whether you could benefit from orthodontic treatment. Along with prosthodontics, orthodontics is considered to be an area of cosmetic dentistry.

What is Orthodontic Treatment and how could it help me?

Once an orthodontist checks the current condition of your teeth they will inform you of what treatments you are eligible for, or may need. An orthodontist can help improve many things, including but not limited to:

  • The general appearance of your teeth
  • How comfortable your teeth feel in your mouth
  • Functionality and movement of your teeth and jaw
  • The long term health and wellbeing of your gums, teeth, jaw and mouth.

A number of people growing up will experience having teething issues and a large number of those issues are related to straightness and general positioning and shaping of teeth. Although orthodontic treatments are better suited for younger people anyone can be eligible, and benefit from,orthodontic treatments;todaybraces for adults are becoming more and more common as braces for kids. If you are looking for professionals that are specialists in children’s oral health please explore our Paediatric Dentistry professionals.

The most popular treatment carried out is done by using an appliance that is commonly referred to as a brace. Clear braces can be applied, as can coloured braces, for the patients preference; invisible braces can also help conceal the patients appliance.

Do I need an Orthodontist?

If you ever find yourself with concerns about the appearance and feeling of your teeth you could look to see a dentist who will then recommend whether you need or could benefit from seeing an orthodontist. You may be qualified for orthodontic treatments if you find yourself with some of the following problems:

  • Front teeth out of place/sticking out
  • Interference with chewing from either the inner side of your cheek and/or your tongue
  • Constantly asking yourself “Do I need braces?”
  • Dissatisfaction with the appearance of your teeth
  • Weaker back teeth due to shape of jawline/teeth
  • Strained jaw/joints whilst chewing (sometimes leading to headaches)

An orthodontist’s primary job role is to make sure you can bite, chew and move your teeth evenly without strain or stress on the teeth, jaw, gums or tongue.
