FAQs about Orthodontics
Due to the uniqueness of each child, their teeth develop differently. As a child grows, teeth, mouths, and jaws change. You may notice problems with teeth alignment and teeth as they grow. Most of your child’s orthodontic problems will be evident by the age of seven. Among some of the problems are crooked teeth, uneven bites, overbites, underbites, and protruding teeth.
If you see any of these issues, schedule your child’s first orthodontic appointment right away. An early visit to the family dentist can help prevent future complications. The earlier a dentist identifies a patient’s orthodontic problem, the sooner the problem will be treated and the less complicated will it be.Treatment at a younger age also leads to shorter treatment time.
The dentist will help you determine the best time for starting treatment, whether you choose traditional braces, clear braces, or clear aligners such as Invisalign. Orthodontic treatment can begin as early as six years old for some children. The optimum time to get braces or any other type of orthodontic treatment is between the ages of 8 and 14, when the teeth and jaws are most receptive to treatment.
Investing in braces has many advantages that go beyond gaining a straighter, more attractive smile. If you are a parent considering aligning your child’s bite or your own, here are a few reasons why taking the first step may be well worth it.
You May Have Fewer Chances of Tooth Decay
Those with crowded and crooked teeth are more likely to get cavities than those with properly aligned teeth. If you make an investment in braces, you can reduce your risk of developing recurring dental decay.
Reduce the Risk of Gum Disease
When teeth are misaligned, periodontal infections are challenging to manage as there are more areas that are difficult to reach when the teeth are crooked. A comprehensive approach to improving your oral health can be achieved by including orthodontic treatment as part of your gum disease treatment.
Manage TMJ Disorder Symptoms
Your bite directly affects the movement of your jaw (TMJ). An abnormal bite means your joint has to compromise its natural range of motion for eating and speaking. Aligning your smile promotes healthier TMJ movement, thereby potentially reducing muscle tension.
Less Dental Emergencies
You are at a higher risk of dental injuries if you have protruding front teeth especially if you participate in recreational sports. By aligning your smile, you may reduce your risk of breaking, chipping, and having knocked-out teeth.
Enhances Oral Health
Orthodontic treatment contributes to making teeth function properly and creating healthy smiles. When you have a good bite, you can chew, bite, and speak more easily. Misaligned teeth are difficult to clean and can result in abnormal wear of the tooth enamel, which may require extensive and costly dental procedures in the long run.
For many people, orthodontic treatment is about more than just improving the appearance of their smile. It can also be a powerful tool for boosting self-confidence. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, orthodontic treatment addresses the underlying cause of dental irregularities, which can profoundly affect a person’s self-esteem.
Treatments come with certain risks and limitations. Fortunately, orthodontic complications are rare and usually of minor consequence. It is, however, essential to fully comprehend the risks before undergoing treatment. Risks include:
- Damage to enamel
- Resorption of the roots
- Damage to the gums
- Physical trauma
- Temporomandibular disorder (jaw issues)
- Pulp damage
- Headgear injury
- Prolonged treatment
- Treatment failure
- Speech problems
Orthodontic treatment varies from patient to patient. Even though some orthodontic problems are managed faster than others, the average orthodontic treatment takes about two years. Nevertheless, experienced dentists can resolve more moderate problems in as little as six months to one year, while more complex issues may require three to five years to repair.
