Orthodontics Can Help You Get the Straight Teeth You've Always Wanted
A smile plays a vital role in an individual’s appearance. Poorly positioned and crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed about your appearance.
Teeth that are misaligned can lead to a variety of oral issues. It might be difficult to keep your teeth clean when they’re out of alignment, and if they aren’t cleaned adequately, they risk being lost early due to tooth decay or periodontal disease.

Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontic Treatments
1. Crooked or crowded teeth
Having crooked or crowded teeth is one of the most common reasons why a person seeks orthodontic treatment. Aside from being unsightly, crooked teeth also increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease since cleaning them with a toothbrush and floss can be challenging.
2. Bite problems
Patients who experience bite problems may seek orthodontic treatment due to difficulty in eating or speech problems.
When a patient’s upper teeth are too forward for their face, and their lower teeth are almost touching the palate when they bite, this is called an overbite. However, an underbite is when the lower teeth protrude farther than your upper teeth.
When one or more of the patient’s lower teeth sticks out past the upper teeth when a patient bites, this is called a crossbite. And it is called an open bite if the patient’s upper and lower teeth do not come into contact when biting.
3. Spaces or gaps
Patients who have spaces between teeth seek orthodontic treatment to have these spaces closed. Having spaces between teeth can make a person more conscious about their smile, and it can also make it more difficult for them to clean the adjacent teeth leading to poor oral hygiene.
Orthodontic treatments align the teeth and with that comes more benefits other than just improving the smile.
1. Better smile
Orthodontics enhances a person’s smile as it straightens the teeth. A straighter, more symmetrical smile is often seen as more attractive, and orthodontic treatment can help you achieve this smile by improving the alignment of teeth, making them more even with each other.
2. Better speech
Orthodontic treatment improve the quality of one’s speech. The position of teeth affects how words are articulated. When your teeth are in alignment, the tongue can glide smoothly over them, making it easier to produce clear speech sounds. Orthodontic treatment can give you the confidence to speak clearly and confidently.
3. Better oral health
When teeth are crooked or misaligned, they can be more challenging to clean, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can help correct these problems by straightening the teeth, making it easier to brush and floss effectively. Also, orthodontic treatment can help to improve bite alignment, which can decrease the likelihood of TMJ problems and teeth grinding. As a result, orthodontic treatment can profoundly impact oral health.
4. Better digestion
Orthodontic treatment can improve digestion by straightening the teeth which can result in better chewing. It then helps break down food more effectively and allows the stomach to better extract nutrients. While it is not a cure-all for digestive problems, it can be an effective way to improve overall health by improving the function of the teeth and gums.
5. Boosts confidence
A straighter smile can do more than improve your appearance, it can also boost your self-confidence. Orthodontic treatment can produce significant improvements in your teeth’s alignment, leading to increased confidence in both your personal and professional life.
Traditional braces and Invisalign are orthodontic treatments aimed at straightening teeth and improving a patient’s bite. Traditional braces, also called dental braces, use brackets that are cemented on teeth and wires, which exerts the force allowing the movement of teeth to their ideal position.
Invisalign, also called invisible braces, is a removable clear aligner that is thin and flexible. It allows the movement of teeth through the application of gentle, constant pressure. Invisalign is more comfortable and is said to cause less pain to patients.
Clear aligners are removable plastic trays fabricated from the patient’s tooth models. It uses a unique 3-D printing technology to digitally place teeth in their desired position. Using this, they will predict how many movements the teeth take to reach these desired positions and alignments. These movements or steps are divided, and each step is printed into tooth models which is then used to fabricate the clear aligners. Once the patient wears the clear aligner, it will move the teeth by applying gentle, constant pressure. The goal of the aligners is to move the teeth to the same position in the cast from which the aligner is printed.
1. More effective in treating severe cases
Traditional orthodontic braces are considered the more effective treatment option for people with severe cases. The wires in braces produce more tooth movement due to the higher force it generates compared to aligners. Also, teeth with braces have more freedom to move in the direction they are led to, unlike teeth with clear aligners, which are covered and have limited tooth movement.
2. Shorter treatment time
Clear aligners can be removed, and their effectiveness depends on the patient’s compliance to wearing them for 22 hours a day. On the other hand, the brackets of traditional braces are cemented on the teeth and cannot be removed. As a result, traditional braces can move teeth continuously without interruptions, making it more efficient, leading to faster treatment.
3. More affordable and cost-effective
Getting traditional orthodontic braces is more affordable than having clear aligners. Although more insurance companies are starting to cover clear aligners, traditional braces are the one for you if you are looking for a cheaper option to straighten the teeth.
Orthodontic treatment is often very effective, but it can also have adverse effects. It can cause pain, gum disease, loosening of teeth, shortening of the teeth, TMJ disorders, and for some, allergic reactions. The dentist will discuss these risks with patients, and specific measures and instructions will be given to minimise these risks.
Retainers are custom-made appliances designed to keep the teeth in place once the orthodontic treatment is finished. Patients must wear removable retainers daily for nine months except when eating and cleaning the appliance. After which, based on the dentist’s assessment, this can be reduced to nightly wear.
Considering the entire cost, orthodontic treatment can be very expensive, but it has proven to be worth it, which is why more and more people have it. Most people rely on their health insurance coverage for dental services, but unfortunately, not all health funds cover orthodontic treatment. It is best to contact you health fund provider to determine the coverage of your policy.
