Orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. Confusing isn’t it?

Read on to learn more about orthodontists and their dental specialty.

What is an Orthodontist?

Orthodontists are dental specialists who completed an advanced education program after dental school to learn the special skills required to handle tooth movement and guide facial development.

Orthodontics for Everyone, at Any Age

Everyone wants that perfect smile; Teeth that bite perfectly are healthy and present a bright smile to the world. But very few of us are born with these perfect teeth.

Most of us are born, or grow into, teeth that are far from perfect.

This can lead to dental health problems, eating and speaking discomfort, and issues with how we look and are perceived by the world.

At Smile Dental Studios Gosnells, we have an answer – orthodontic treatment!

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that treats patients with alignment problems of the teeth, jaw, and facial growth. Orthodontics also includes cosmetic dentistry, in which the treatment improves appearance.

Bad bite or malocclusion is the most common orthodontic issue. This can result from accidents, congenital disabilities, disease, thumbsucking, or genetics. This and other orthodontic problems can affect anyone at any age.

Common Problems Treated by Orthodontics

  • Crooked teeth
  • Bruxism or teeth grinding
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Speech problems
  • Wide spaces between teeth
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders

Benefits of Orthodontics

An improved smile comes with several remarkable benefits:

Look Good, Do Good, Feel Good

Your dental health directly affects your overall health and comfort. How you feel about yourself plays an important role in the quality of your life.

When you feel unattractive because of misaligned teeth or jaws that don’t meet properly, you may become conscious of how you look.

You may cover your mouth when speaking or laughing; hesitate to smile, or hide your face.

Orthodontic treatment can improve your dental and overall health and change your facial appearance for the better, and it can also boost your self-esteem.

It can provide you an opportunity to participate in improving your appearance. Patients often feel more confident even before the treatment is finished.

As you look better, you may find yourself feeling better and enjoying a greater quality of life. With a more attractive smile, you can face your career and your relationships with confidence.

It’s a Great Feeling, at Any Age

Orthodontic treatments can help people, regardless of age. Today, more adults are wearing braces to correct a less than perfect smile.

Modern orthodontic advances like less visible braces, as well as affordable payment plans, have made treatment an easy option for adults.

At the same time, some young ones may greatly benefit from early detection of irregular bites and early treatment of those issues.

Orthodontics can help guide tooth growth and jaw development as a child grows and as permanent teeth come in.

Early treatment may prevent more severe problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.

Better Teeth, Better Health

Orthodontic treatment can improve one’s dental health as it also improves appearance. Straight and properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain.

Correcting orthodontic problems can help prevent cavities, periodontal disease, and even tooth loss.

With a healthy and beautiful smile, you feel better about yourself and your interactions with others.

Diagnosis of Teeth and Jaw Alignment Problems

Teeth and jaw alignment issues are identified using several tests, such as:

  • X-rays of the mouth and jaw
  • Impressions of the upper and lower jaws, which are used to make moulds of your teeth

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

Orthodontists require additional schooling as a dental specialty; the situation is similar to a doctor who obtains additional education to become a surgeon. Another difference is that orthodontists specialise in helping patients with teeth alignment, improving the bite, or fitting them for braces and corrective appliances.

How does orthodontic treatment work?

Braces use gentle pressure to shift teeth gradually into ideal positions. The brackets placed on your teeth and the archwire that connects them are the main elements. When the archwire is placed into the brackets, it tries to return to its original shape. It applies slight pressure to shift your teeth to their new and more ideal positions.

Do braces hurt?

The placement of elastics and brackets on your teeth doesn’t hurt at all. Once your braces are placed, you may feel soreness in your teeth for a few days. Your lips and cheeks may take one to two weeks to get used to your braces.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

Treatment length varies on a case-by-case basis, but the average length is from one to three years. Treatment time can be affected by growth rate and severity of the correction needed. Treatment length also depends on patient compliance. Having good oral hygiene and attending to regular appointments are important in keeping treatment time on schedule.
