All of us are unique in many ways and it is natural to have different smiles. Further, it is okay and completely human to have some imperfections in our smiles. However, misaligned and crooked teeth are very common sources of low confidence, negative self-image, and embarrassment for kids and teens. We, at The Dental Roots, believe that everyone deserves to feel confident with a beautiful smile. So, we offer advanced orthodontic treatments in our clinics.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that concentrates on bringing a person's smile and oral health into better alignment by realigning their teeth and jaws. Teeth that are crooked and do not fit together properly are more difficult to maintain hygiene and are more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay.
Here is what the dental ortho treatment at The Dental Roots looks like.
Our orthodontist will initially gather your general case history before doing a clinical examination. The study of the skeletal, dental, and soft tissue structures of the craniofacial areas takes place with full mouth X-rays and lateral cephalograms. These aid in the diagnosis of orthodontic issues during the entire process.
Next, our orthodontist will take the impressions of the upper and lower jaws to create study models that aid in examining the tooth alignment and occlusion from all angles. It is done to take extraoral and intraoral pictures, which are then compared with pictures taken before or after the therapy and stored as records. Finally, our orthodontist will assist you in finding the best possible treatment route for you.
Why is Orthodontic Treatment Important?
Teeth that are crowded and crooked are more difficult to keep clean. Tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss may arise from this. The abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, poor chewing function, and excessive stress on the bone that supports the teeth are some other dental problems that can arise with a misaligned dental structure.
To provide painless orthodontic treatment, we at The Dental Roots are well-equipped with cutting-edge technology and contemporary equipment. Along with endodontics and implantology, our chief dentist, Dr Dheeraj Setia, has a wealth of expertise in the field of orthodontics. We also provide adult aligners and braces at our dental care clinics in addition to treatment for youngsters. For kids or teens who find braces awkward, we provide customised invisible braces. They are hardly visible, more comfortable, and won’t interfere with your usual activities. So, if you are looking for an orthodontist near me, feel free to drop by our dental clinic in Delhi or Gurgaon.
Which Orthodontic Treatment is right for you?
Here are the available options you can choose for yourself or your kid.
These are the braces that are most widely used. For this procedure, you will need to wear metal brackets on your teeth for a number of months and more than a year in some cases. Compared to other bracket types, metal brackets are less expensive. When it comes to the ligatures’ colours, you also have a wide range of options.
Metal braces are more effective at treating extreme crowding than transparent braces or Invisalign aligners. They provide your orthodontist with the control necessary to move the teeth subtly at a time. Traditional braces’ primary drawback is their metal-mouth appearance which some patients feel conscious about.
These are constructed from sturdy composite materials specifically created to match the teeth’s colour. Many patients prefer these because they are less apparent. The wires are constructed of metal alloys, while the brackets are made of ceramic or porcelain materials, delivering a steady, moderate force to shift teeth. The orthodontist occasionally employs wires that match the teeth for even less visibility.
They advance teeth a lot more quickly than transparent plastic aligners. But, if you do not take proper care, discolouration is the biggest drawback of ceramic braces.
Some people who don’t want wires and brackets on their teeth should use these braces, and we have a solution for them as well. We offer clear aligners, which are manufactured specifically for you and will gradually and gently move your teeth into position. You can get a fantastic smile without changing your way of life because these are detachable.
A set of personalised, clear plastic aligners that look like mouthguards make up the invisible braces. These aligners need to be changed every two weeks. You can consume foods and drinks of your liking without any trouble. The main drawbacks of these procedures are that they are more expensive, take longer to produce results, and do not work for significant dental issues.
On the teeth’s chewing surfaces, metal brackets are used here. These “hidden” braces are made to be used with sophisticated wires and brackets created especially to provide the unique outcomes your teeth require. Incognito braces are successful in treating all situations for both adults and children.
The biggest drawback is that they are more difficult and expensive to maintain than conventional braces. So, some patients may feel unpleasant at first.
