How do I know if I need orthodontics?
When you have a malocclusion or "bad bite," you have a dental or facial irregularity that causes your teeth to be improperly aligned. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of such irregularities.
How long will orthodontic treatment take?
Everyone is different, so there's really no way to predict how long your orthodontic treatment will take. Depending on the severity of the problem, it may last from just a few months to a few years.
In addition, after the course of active orthodontic treatment, patients will usually wear retainers to maintain the position of the teeth while the bone reforms around them.
What happens at an orthodontic examination?
Evaluating you or your child's mouth prior to orthodontic work is much like a regular dental exam, except that models are made from impressions of the teeth. The doctor will use that model in your plan of treatment, which is as individualized as you are. I also will utilize your teeth x-rays, medical and dental health histories, as well as photos of the teeth, face and smile to round out the preliminary work.
