Basics about orthodontics


Now with today’s subject, let’s see how the process begins. Orthodontics serves the purpose to straighten the patient’s teeth. Chances are that most people will need orthodontics at some point in their life. It can be due to bad luck and genetics that your teeth crowd together. One of the most common reasons is because of the wisdom teeth impacting the others. They grow in the teenage years and can impact other teeth, making them crowd together.


That is why some people get their teeth ruined so late. I have seen patients in their 40s that do not have space for the wisdom teeth to grow. The best way to know if you have to extract them is to get panoramic x rays. This way will help the dentist know if you need extractions before the worst happens. For some patients it can begin very early at teenage years, in this case the braces have to be installed earlier.


That would be the best case scenario because it makes it easier to solve the problem. Usually brackets need to be used for 2 year at least, with adjustments every 2 months. The orthodontist will tighten the brackets so teeth are correctly aligned. This can feel uncomfortable at first, but after some time you will get used to it.


Taking care of dental hygiene while using braces


You cannot skip is your dental hygiene, it is very important. Some patients can find it difficult or frustrating because of the orthodontics. What you need to know is that you have to keep up with cleaning your teeth even while using brackets. Your teeth will decay if you do not brush them every day. That is why I am going to share some tips so this becomes piece of cake for you.


To brush between your teeth easier use an interdental brush. This tiny brush is perfect to clean your teeth and braces alike. It can reach all places, even difficult ones. Get rid of the food debris that gets stuck between your teeth thank to this little fellow. It is a dental item that cannot be missing from your bathroom. On the other hand, using dental floss and mouthwash also helps to maintain your teeth clean and healthy.


You have to beware when eating because it can make your life hell. Many foods can get stuck in your brackets and it is difficult to remove. Chewy stuff specially is really bad for you. Try to avoid them if you do not want to spend hours getting it off. Also you want to avoid hard food that can break the wires of your braces. You do not want to spend your hard earned money getting braces again.


After using  your braces

Life is not over when you finish the braces treatment. You are halfway of the journey but did the hardest part first. Your teeth should look straight and beautiful by now bot it is not over. You need to use retainers for a while to keep your teeth in place. If you skip this phase, your teeth will move to their previous position. What this means is that they get crooked again, so wear your retainer at all times!


Cleaning your retainers is also part of the job. Keeping it neat and clean will help you stay healthy and avoid diseases. There is nothing worse than a dirty retainer, trust me, you do not want it. Many patients come with halitosis, gingivitis and caries because they failed to clean their retainers. Remember daily dental hygiene is important!


On the other hand, all this can be simplified when using Invisalign. It is a custom treatment with transparent retainers that function as braces too. It is comfortable and do not requires the adjustment at the dentist. The treatment comes with different retainers you have to use according you are advancing. You can get Invisalign at our dental clinics and for less the cost than the US and Canada. SO book your appointment now to get you’re the perfect teeth you deserve!
