A few things to know about braces and orthodontist

To begin with let us understand what orthodontist actually means. It is a word formed after the conjunction of two words: “ortho” that means correct and “dentist” meaning teeth. So, as can be deciphered an orthodontist is someone whom a person visits for the purpose of getting their teeth straightened. For a Leigh man this explanation would be enough but there is a lot more to an orthodontist. They also specialize in correcting the jaw alignments as well. One may have teeth aligned correctly but the jaws do not fit together ideally, leading to problems such as incorrect bite that may result in further problems related to gums and teeth.

A common result of visiting an orthodontist would be a person wearing braces. Braces are appliances that are used for correcting malocclusion of teeth. They are made up of three parts- brackets, bands and metal wire. Wearing them over a period of time causes the teeth to move from their improper position to the ideal ones resulting in the correction of dental problems. They can be made of different materials like stainless steel commonly known as metal braces; ceramic or porcelain known as clear braces and more. The difference between the two is that the latter is less noticeable than the former and has been developed mainly for cosmetic reasons but nevertheless, is equally effective.

Often there are cosmetic reasons behind people opting for dental treatment to improve their appearances by correcting/customizing the way they smile. The orthodontic treatment is not age specific, which means that it can be started at any age but it is advisable to see an orthodontist as and when the condition is known so as to avoid worsening it. One should know that timely addressing the problem can result in its correction without much hassle but ignoring it might lead to serious condition affecting the heart as well.
