What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics covers the diagnosis, prevention, interception, guidance, and correction of bad bites or dental irregularities caused by crooked teeth. 

Many patients today opt for invisible braces as an alternative to standard orthodontic treatment, though clear aligners aren’t as effective in correcting severe dental problems. In comparison, traditional metal braces are a tried and true method of correcting:

  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Bite problems such as open bite, crossbite, underbite, and overbite

The Importance of Properly Aligned Teeth

Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. This may make you more prone to gum disease and tooth decay. Properly aligned teeth are easier to monitor, treat, and clean, allowing you and your dentist to more easily remove bacteria.

Aside from poor oral hygiene, misaligned teeth can affect your bite force. When the upper and lower jaw aren’t aligned perfectly, it can result in dental conditions such as bruxism, TMJ disorder, and tooth enamel erosion. These conditions can have painful symptoms and may result in tooth damage. 

Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are often thought of as ill-fitting appliances, but recent advancements in orthodontics have made braces more comfortable than ever. Braces apply pressure on your teeth using metal wires and brackets to gently shift them into proper alignment. Each month, our dentist in Luck, WI, will tighten the wire to allow the teeth to gradually shift into place. 

Depending on their personalized treatment plan, patients may need accessories such as elastic bands. Every patient’s case is unique, so treatment timelines may vary. However, orthodontic treatments like braces last 24 months on average.
