ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Orthodontic treatment helps you have a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.

 

WHEN DO I NEED ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?

Your oral health is assessed using diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs to confirm whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan for you.

 

Each tooth has an ideal position in the mouth for proper dental function and aesthetics. These are a few examples of the ideal alignment and occlusion for teeth:

  • Normal Occlusion (Normal Teeth)
  • Normal Smile Line

  • Flat Smile Line — The smile line is an imaginary line that extends from the incisal edges of the maxillary incisors and is parallel to the curvature of the lower lip and when it flattens it disfigures the beauty of the smile.

 

  • Dental Crowding — Dental crowding is defined as a discrepancy between tooth size and jaw size that results in a misalignment of the tooth row. Proposed reasons for crowding include excessively large teeth, small jaws, and a combination of both.

 

  • Spacing — Spacing, the opposite of crowding, is an excess of space for your teeth, resulting in gaps between your teeth. This generally occurs when the teeth are smaller than the available space.

 

  • Open Bite — This type of malocclusion has no vertical overlap or contact between the upper and lower incisors.

 

  • Deep Bite or Deep Overbite – Deep Bite or Deep Overbite is defined as excessive vertical overlapping of the mandibular incisors by the maxillary incisors in centric occlusion.

 

  • Increased Overjet — Increased Overjet describes what happens when the top front teeth point outwards, or protrude, over the bottom teeth towards the lip. It is also known as ‘protrusion’.

 

  • Reverse Overjet — A reverse overjet also known as “Reverse Bite” or “Underbite”  is defined as the lower incisor edge occluding anterior to the upper incisors.

 

  • Bidental Protrusion — Bidental protrusion is a condition characterized by protrusive and proclined upper and lower incisors and an increased protrusion of the lips.
