Orthodontics treatment

Orthodontics treatment is about making the very best of your teeth, addressing the issues highlighted above generally through the use of braces but, in extreme cases, it can even involve wearing special headgear or having pins temporarily inserted in the jaw.

Orthodontics treatment is not often begun until all of a child’s adult teeth have emerged, usually around the age of 12. For adults, treatment can begin at any age.

It’s not normally a treatment that’s carried out by a dentist and they will refer you or your child to an orthodontist.

Types of orthodontic treatments

There are numerous different orthodontic treatments which can be used, depending on the corrective procedures recommended.

The first thing a dentist or orthodontist will do is examine the teeth, take photographs and X-rays and probably also moulds. Then a treatment plan will be devised. This might involve several options to talk through with the orthodontist before deciding which one to follow.

There are four main methods:

  • Fixed braces are made up from brackets that are attached to the front of each tooth and linked using wires.
  • Removable braces that generally have plastic plates that fit in to the roof of the mouth and attach to a few teeth for security. These are generally only used when limited tooth adjustment needs to be made.
  • Functional appliances that are a pair of plastic braces that are joined together and are designed to fit on top and bottom teeth.
  • Headgear that is used with other appliances and usually only worn at night.

Orthodontic FAQ

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

Correcting mis-aligned teeth is a slow and gradual process, especially if the best results are going to be achieved. So you should reckon on a timeframe of between 18 and 24 months.

What happens at the end of treatment?

At the end of treatment patients are advised to wear a retainer, at night at least, to hold the straightened teeth in place until they become fully established in their new positions. There will probably be a follow-up appointment or two with the orthodontist to check that the treatment continues to be effective.

Won’t having braces affect my eating?

For the first few days after fitting it will certainly feel a little strange to have braces. After a while patients get used to the feeling and can return to eating their normal diet. But some food and drinks like toffees, cola and hard sweets should be avoided as these can damage the braces and even the teeth.
