4 Dental Health Problems that can be Fixed by Orthodontic Treatment

4 Dental Health Problems that can be Fixed by Orthodontic Treatment

November 26, 2020

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws, misaligned bite patterns. It can also focus on modifying facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics. Abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws is common.

Here are the most common dental orthodontic treatments:

  • Occlusal problems: 

Issues with alignment of teeth and jaws are seen when your teeth are not in proper occlusion because of crossbite, overbite or underbite. These problems cause speech difficulties with change in the facial form and structure. With the help of an orthodontic treatments, one can fix these issues to get a more appealing and well aligned teeth.

  • Bruxism and tooth grinding:

What is bruxism? Bruxism is a condition in which you grind or clench your teeth. This can happen while you are awake or while sleeping. Sometimes symptoms like headache, spasm of jaw muscles or tooth pain can be noticed. Bruxism and tooth grinding can happen due to abnormal alignment of jaws, during concentration or while having anxiety or stress. If bruxism and clenching is because of underlying psychological reasons, a dental guard along with visits to the therapist can help in reducing the loss of enamel and stress respectively. For misaligned jaws, orthodontics treatment can be done to overcome the habit.

  • Spacing and crowding:

A lot of times we see patients with space between their teeth (most commonly the front two teeth: diastema) or overlapping of teeth (also called crowding) which are not aesthetically pleasing. These problems can easily be fixed with a removable or fixed orthodontic appliance. Sometimes crowded teeth are seen when there is no space in the jaw (tooth-jaw discrepancy), such cases are treated with extraction followed by orthodontic treatment for alignment of teeth.

  • Facial asymmetry:

Facial asymmetry is presence of a clinically significant variation between the two halves of the face that the patient (or parents, in the instance of most congenital asymmetries) is concerned about and that can be quantified by the clinician. Facial aesthetic evaluation is the most important part of orthodontic treatment planning and its attainment is a primary goal throughout the procedure. 

Depending on the age of the patient the treatment plan is made. If the patient is in a growing age, orthodontic appliances (like headgears, functional appliances, etc.) can be used to get the symmetry. If the patient has surpassed its growing age, sometimes surgical treatment can be done along with the orthodontic treatment to get the required result.
