Orthodontics Dental Clinics, Toronto Orthodontic Specialist

Orthodontics, formally orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, is the first specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusion (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both.

Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.

Some of the most reasons patients seek orthodontics treatment are

Protruding upper front teeth – one of the most common dental problems

Crowding – a narrow jaw may mean there is not enough room for your teeth, resulting in crowding. Conversely, some patients have significant gaps between their teeth.

Asymmetry – particularly when the center lines of the upper and lower front teeth do not match, perhaps because the teeth have drifted or the position of the jaw has shifted.

A deep bite – when your upper teeth cover the lower teeth too much

A reverse bite – when your upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth

An open bite – when your front teeth remain apart when your back teeth meet; the tongue is often still visible between the upper and lower front teeth.

Impacted teeth – in some patients, secondary teeth come through in the wrong position or do not erupt at all. Orthodontic treatment can help bring these teeth into the correct position.

Studies show Malocclusions or bad bites cause problems beyond bad appearance.

Problems like breathing problems, headaches, ear aches, ear infections and mouth breathing can happen becuase of bad bites. Bad bite can also cause other serious disorders like TMD Disorders (commonly called TMJ). Fortunately, a lot of these symptoms seize to exist after undergoing the required treatment. Some basic orthodontic treatments like braces and palatal expander (also known as palate expander or jaw expanders ) can help to solve the problem of misaligned and overcrowded teeth.

More advanced procedures are functional jaw orthopedic treatments, which make complicated orthodontic procedures unnecessary. Moreover, functional jaw orthopedic science can be applied early in childhood as the jaw and teeth take shape, in order to prevent future issues. Orthodontic treatment is about making the best of your teeth; improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Once you can bite together correctly, you can eat much more comfortably, take care of your teeth and gums more easily and your smile will benefit extremely!

Although orthodontic treatment is generally best carried out in children, but adults can have orthodontic treatment too specially considering new technologies like Invisialign. We recommend taking your children to see dentist as soon as they start teething ( when milk teeth appear ) to keep a check on their dental progress. With continual check up, dentist can predict your child’s development and future occurrence of dental problems.
