What Problems Can Orthodontics Fix?

There are a number of different problems that orthodontics can fix in children. If your child is struggling with dental issues, you may wonder if they would benefit from orthodontic treatment.

One of the most common issues that orthodontics can correct is crowding. Crowding occurs when certain teeth, usually the front ones, are spaced too closely together. In severe cases, the teeth may overlap or even bite into each other. This can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, as well as bite abnormalities.

Another common problem that orthodontics can address is overbites. An overbite is when the upper teeth stick out beyond the lower teeth. This can cause a number of complications, such as ligament strain and headaches. An overbite can also make it difficult to clean your teeth properly.

FAQ About Childrens Orthodontics

Choosing orthodontic treatment for your child is a big decision. There are many options to choose from and there are pros and cons to each option.

There are three main types of orthodontic treatment, braces, headgear, and Clear aligners. Braces can be fixed or removable with brackets that attach to the teeth or gum line that need adjustment or they can be hooked on wires which attach them in place. Headgear uses a harness that goes around the head and used with straps that attach to the upper and lower jaw. clear aligners are a group of clear removable aligners which are bonded to the teeth.

Each type of treatment has its advantages and disadvantages. It is important to consider how each procedure works, how long it takes, how well it works, its cost, and whether it is right for your child.
Some kids will suffer from crooked stars and wonky teeth, but this does not have to be the case. As long as they are taken in for yearly checkups, their teeth can be fixed with braces if needed. The sooner they fix orthodontic issues, the better the results of their treatment will be.

Many children start to get orthodontic issues by age 10 or 12. They start teething around this age, and the extra teeth often push their teeth out of alignment. Spacing issues can develop, and crooked teeth may begin to appear as well.

As a child enters the teen years, they begin to suffer from different orthodontic issues. Because of their hormonal changes, they may develop overbites and underbites. They can also develop misaligned teeth, which requires braces to be able to treat.

Early treatment is the best way to fix orthodontic issues in children.
There’s no mystery about what a dentist does. Dentists work with teeth, and so they are also called dentists. Orthodontists, on the other hand, work with teeth, but more specifically they are experts in tooth alignment and biting positions. Generally speaking, they can straighten your teeth while a dentist might help fix cavities or fillings.
