Orthodontics is the name of a treatment department that aims to bring the teeth of the people who suffer from dental crowding into a normal arrangement. Orthodontic treatment, which is a specialty of dentistry, takes place between 1 year and 3 years.


To ensure proper alignment of your teeth, your braces should be periodically tightened and the pressure increased every month. You should visit the orthodontist regularly every month and perform regular checks. Going to each appointment will affect the length of your treatment.


After each appointment, pain and pain occur as the wires increase the pressure. Therefore you can use painkillers. Orthodontics can be applied at any age, although dental braces are much more effective in children.


What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics is a special branch of dentistry which deals with the diagnosis, protection and treatment of irregularities in the teeth and face. Irregular or “bad” closure called malocclusion can be corrected by orthodontic treatment. Corrective devices are used in orthodontic treatment and these are usually brackets. These tools are used to smooth out irregular closures and teeth, to close up irregular cavities, and to bring the teeth and lips to their proper positions. It can also be used in other branches of dentistry such as implantation or cosmetic dentistry. Orthodontic treatment ensures proper jaw growth and permanent tooth removal in young children.


Closing Disorders:

Irregularities such as perplexity and gaps between teeth can be seen in many people. Many adults have closing disorders. Closure disorders cause cosmetic problems as well as functional problems such as chewing and speech difficulties.


Closing disorders may be genetic. Trauma can also cause closing disorder. When the teeth move as a result of fracture or impact, they may join the surrounding bone. If this abnormal root union, called ankylosis, occurs in a child of growing age, the teeth cannot be properly aligned on the jaw and closing disorders occur. Sucking of the thumb and pacifier use are also a cause of closure disorder. The upper jaw teeth can grow to cover the lower jaw teeth. The force of the tongue during swallowing may also cause this problem.


If the primary teeth fall prematurely, the permanent teeth cannot be ordered properly. Because under normal conditions, primary teeth act as placeholders for permanent teeth. Thus, the permanent teeth cannot come into the mouth correctly and are arranged perpendicularly. In some cases, they may be present in the mouth as half-drained. Teeth next to the premature lost milk tooth tend to move or move into the cavity, and the permanent teeth cannot therefore move into that cavity they need to drive.


Why Orthodontic Treatment Is Necessary?

Whether orthodontic treatment is performed depends on the individual. Many people live with irregularities, perplexities and implicit closures. However, many people live a more comfortable life as an orthodontic treatment and are more confident. Because with orthodontic treatment, dental health is maintained and appearance is improved in the long term, which helps to increase self-confidence. Daily oral and dental care, such as brushing and flossing, can be done more easily in properly sorted teeth. Compared with perpendicular teeth, properly sorted teeth have less risk of caries and gum disease.


When closure disorders are corrected with orthodontic treatment, it is easier to chew and digest food. Orthodontic treatment protects the posterior teeth from the risk of premature wear. When you bite, a large amount of force is applied to the teeth. If the teeth do not fit exactly, the rear teeth wear more.
