What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty within dentistry that diagnose, prevent and correct issues with crooked teeth or bite problems, also known as a malocclusion. Orthodontists treatments also helps in correction of malpositioned jaw.

Common dental issues resolved through orthodontics are:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth
  • An overbite or “buck teeth”
  • An underbite
  • An open bite
  • A crossbite

Earlier, Orthodontics was known as kids’ issue, but with advanced orthodontic treatments like clear braces, adults and teens can get a unique and beautiful smile. Dr. Tran and his team serving families to meet their dental goals in San Diego.

Why is proper teeth alignment important?

Usually, we ponder orthodontics as purely an aesthetic problem, but the effect of misalignment and bite problems on the mechanics of eating, chewing, and even speaking is equal. When your teeth are overlapped, it becomes difficult to clean them properly, increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

The outer harder layer of teeth known as enamel, act as a protector against tooth decay. Your enamel is worn down when your teeth and jaws are misaligned, which causes additional stress on gums and jawbones. Eventually, this creates a headache, sore jaw joint and lead to migraines.

How is skeletal anchorage used in orthodontics?

Skeletal anchorage comprises titanium anchor screws and plates that are surgically placed in the bone and used in coordination with traditional braces. These temporary anchorage devices provide stable anchorage while preventing tooth movement. Dr. Tran may use this technique in, particularly complex cases.

What are the treatment options in orthodontics?

Earlier, orthodontics had only a few choices, when metal braces ruled, headgear was commonplace, and only kids got braces. Today adults are also getting healthy outlook by using braces. Although there is more range in the types of braces offered, the underlying assumption is the same: correcting misalignment.

There are three main types of braces:

  • Traditional, metal braces, which are made from stainless steel with metal brackets
  • Ceramic braces, which use tooth-colored or transparent materials
  • Clear braces, which are clear, removable aligners that fit over teeth
