Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with malocclusions, which are bites or teeth that are misaligned or have an unpleasant look.
The most common use of orthodontics is the installation of braces to correct “crooked” teeth. Although this is a treatment commonly associated with teenagers or preteens, modern dental technology allows braces to be used with adults.
Adults today have a bad impression of braces because they remember the braces of two decades ago, which were shiny, obvious, and uncomfortable. Braces today are a very different breed. Patients can choose braces that are very discreet and tooth-colored, or they can choose braces that are pleasant-looking and customize them to their liking. In fact, the stigma of wearing braces has virtually disappeared today. It’s not uncommon to see teens spending time selecting the type of braces they are going to wear as well as the color of the bands they are going to wear with their braces.
Aside from aesthetics, aligning teeth can prevent problems in the future, such as bad bites, uneven bites, jaw fatigue or unnecessary tooth pressure or wear.
The length of time that braces will need to be worn depends greatly on the condition of the patient and the severity of the malocclusion. However, most cases take about one year.
