An orthodontist can improve your bite

The irregular shape, improper/abnormal positioning of teeth is a problem that not only gives rise to complex dental problems but also affect the visual appearance of a person. The crowding of teeth causes a problem that in medical parlance is known as malocclusion or in common words bad bite. This also creates difficulties in maintaining a healthy oral practice i.e. proper brushing or flossing as it becomes difficult to reach all the areas for removing food particles. This also affects the appearance as the asymmetry resulting due to misalignment of teeth will be visible when smiling or talking. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with these oral conditions. If unchecked this may cause tooth decay, bad breath among other such problems.

The various orthodontic problems can be a result of two factors- natural and accident/childhood habits like thumb sucking, etc. These can manifest themselves in different form like crowding, overbite, underbite, gapped teeth etc. This may further affect the ability of speech, biting and more. The treatment and its duration vary from person to person depending upon the age and severity of the condition that generally ranges from one to three years. For mild problems, the most commonly followed procedure is wearing orthodontic appliances like braces. For severe cases surgical procedures might be required.

While an orthodontist works to improve the functionality of teeth, cosmetic dentistry is aimed at improving their appearances. To achieve this various procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, teeth reshaping, gum surgery etc. are employed. This is mainly done for cosmetic reasons as they improve the visual appearance and also the smile as well. However, before considering the option of cosmetic dentistry, it is advisable to take the opinion of a dentist as to whether one really needs it. Remember, cosmetic dentistry is just for improving the way the teeth look and it won't cure any dental problem.
