What are Orthodontics?
Orthodontics are the dental practice of correcting improper bites and tooth misalignments. Numerous people suffer from crooked teeth, missing teeth, overbites and other such dental issues. While some people might believe that orthodontic dental issues are merely cosmetic, those cosmetic issues can lead to major health issues over time if they are left untreated. The way that the teeth interact with an individual’s muscles and bone structure can influence his or her overall health significantly. Therefore, in some cases, orthodontics are not only cosmetically required but medically required as well.
How are Orthodontic Procedures Performed?
The manner in which orthodontics are performed depends upon the specific orthodontic issue that is being addressed. For instance, if you are suffering from grinding your teeth in your sleep because of sleep apnea or some other such condition, then the treatment might consist of medication for sleep apnea as well retainers that you wear at night to keep yourself from damaging your teeth any further. However, if you suffer from crooked teeth, you might need braces. Some patients might be candidates for Invisalign braces that are invisible trays that are custom tailored to your mouth to straighten your teeth without anyone even knowing that you have braces.
