The Techniques and Treatments of Orthodontists

Orthodontics is a specialty discipline in dentistry that deals with cosmetic dental correction. A flawless set of pearly

white teeth is not inherited by all. While some are lucky, others are not. However, it is within the reach of dentistry

to reverse such imperfections and rectify them precisely. That is what orthodontics is all about. It is the diagnosis,

cure and prevention of unusual dental spacing, alignment and growth. While the branch of dentistry often offers

resolve in the form of minimally invasive surgeries, in other cases removable and fixed attachments are used to

make the corrections on a simpler level.

Following are the fixtures commonly recommended by a orthodontist in Richmond Hill, or other parts of the

globe, to reform the structural irregularity. Let’s take a look at what all is used in orthodontic treatments.

Braces: Almost everybody has heard about wire braces. One of the oldest dental corrective fitments, these ones still

make the first choice for any kind of dental cosmetic irregularity. These removable metal bands are fitted around the

teeth to bond them well and give them a perfect arc. The brackets work as anchors holding the teeth together. The

tension help keep the teeth in place. Acute over and underbites have been treated with steel braces over the

formative years of a child’s life. However, they are unmistakably hideous and that make the users easy targets of

ridicule in schools, colleges and even workplaces. That encouraged doctors to develop clear braces that are invisible

and can be worn day and night for a sooner correction.

Aligners: Another removable variety of wire braces, aligners are fashioned specifically for adults. Like clear braces,

they are virtually invisible to naked eyes. Removal is needed only at the time of eating and cleaning. You might also

want to take them out when you are brushing and flossing.

Space Maintainers: There are two different varieties of space maintainers, one that is fixed and another that can be

removed when needed. These acrylic bands are fitted on the jaws. Wire branches emerge from the upper bands that

maintain the space between teeth, neither letting them widen or close.

Palatial Expander: Sometimes, the arch of the jaws are too close. Palatial expanders are prescribed to widen the

arch of the top jaw. The fitment comes with a plastic plate that sits seamlessly on the roof of the mouth exerting

pressure on the outward direction. The screws attached to the plate cause the device to spread outward. As a result,

the palatal area widens up with time.

Removable Retainer: Another dental fixture that is made for the roof of the mouth, these removable retainers help

maintain the shape of the arch attained through years of brace use. It keeps the teeth in place preventing them from

going back to their previous misalignment.

A kit of other devices is also recommended conjunctively or independently to correct dental irregularities.
