Orthodontic treatment deals with correcting the appearance and alignment of crooked teeth. The treatment is initiated after most of the child's adult teeth have begun to emerge. This is usually around the age of 12, but it depends on how many adult teeth have emerged. For adults, the treatment can begin at any age, but their options are more limited.
 

What is Orthodontic Treatment? 

Orthodontics treatment is a highly-specialized branch of dentistry that straightens or moves teeth to improve their appearance and function. It can also help protect the long-term health of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints by distributing biting pressure evenly.
 
Straightening your teeth may appear to have only cosmetic benefits, but this could not be further from the truth. Since the proper alignment of the teeth affects the chewing and biting abilities, it has many useful effects on your general health.
 
It is difficult to clean a crooked tooth which leads to tooth decay or periodontal disease. Teeth that do not fit properly can make chewing difficult, causing headaches, back pain, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

What Are the Different Types of Orthodontic Treatments?

Mostly there are 4 primary categories of braces:
  • Metal braces
  • Ceramic braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Clear aligners (Invisalign)
 

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most popular and oldest version of braces. With the help of technology and innovations, they are now smaller, more comfortable, and more practical. Also, metal braces are children's and adolescents' favorite choices. 
 
The orthodontist applies braces to the teeth, connects them with a wire, and makes adjustments on the wire every 4 to 8 weeks. Maintaining proper dental hygiene and caring for metal braces are essential throughout treatment. 
 

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are a less visible and affordable alternative to metal braces. They are mostly preferred by those who don’t like to use Invisalign or lingual braces but would like to be esthetically driven. Their biggest disadvantage is that brushing and nutrition can stain them.
 

Lingual Braces

This treatment requires some orthodontics skills that are peculiar to it. A highly experienced dentist must do the treatment. With this method, the dentist seals the braces behind the teeth, so it is well-suited for those who don’t want to have noticeable braces. 
 
Clear Aligners (Invisalign)
The Invisalign braces have been popular since the 2000s, and now they have become the largest brand of aligners. With this technique, the dentist applies transparent plaques to the teeth. They offer some advantages to users that can’t be ruled out.
 
  • Removable
  • Clear and transparent
  • Allow for easier cleaning
  • Shorter appointments

How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

On average, 24 months is enough to complete an orthodontics treatment. But each patient’s mouth is unique. While some patients require less than 12 months, others may require up to 36 months. It is hard for an orthodontist to tell the exact treatment period, but the factors that influence the treatment time can help us understand it.
 
Age
Younger patients' teeth are less thick and continue shifting and growing. To move teeth into the correct alignment, the procedure could take less time or require less effort. The ages of 9 and 14 are the most preferred ages for orthodontic treatments since the face structure continues to develop and there are both baby and adult teeth.
 
The severity of the condition
More serious jaw alignment takes longer. The treatment may require creating more space, readjusting, and extracting teeth.
 
Oral Hygiene
Throughout the treatment, the patient should keep away from sugary, hard, and sticky foods and avoids chewy. The patient should also keep clean his teeth and braces regularly.

How Much Does Orthodontic Treatment Cost?

The cost of each type of brace significantly varies. The time necessary for the treatment is also another important cause of the cost. So it is difficult to make a price list based on this treatment. But here is a comparison of different types of braces at different locations. The list includes dual arch treatment.

Benefits of Orthodontics Treatments

Orthodentic has lots of benefits as it concentrates on remedying some of the dental problems which otherwise can’t be prevented with normal dentistry. Let’s have a short look at some of its benefits. 
 
1. It decreases the dental damage risk
The unified structure of teeth absorbs the outside shock and prevents the possibility of cracking.
 
2. Helps easier cleaning.
Badly aligned teeth cause food particles to get stuck between them. If food is allowed to remain between your teeth, the possibility of infection increases.
 
3. Reduce the strain on the jawbone.
If the jaw structure and teeth alignment is complicated, the brain notices the uneven pressure and unnaturally changes the chewing style. This cause many aching problems in the body.
 
4. Increase self-confidence
People with misalignment teeth can’t smile as they wish, so this situation negatively influences their psychology. So patients’ confidence increase with the correction of teeth structure.
 

Is Orthodontic Used for Only Children?

There is no age limit for orthodontics treatment. If the person’s health condition permits, it can be done at any age. But orthodontics treatment is usually applied to children because they are always given priority in treatment, and many adults complete their treatment at early ages.

In fact, braces can be an excellent alternative for those who are missing a tooth since they can narrow or expand gaps to provide room for a replacement.

The ideal time to begin braces treatment for children is often when they have lost most or all of their baby teeth. The typical age for children ranges between 11 and 14. But it is accepted that a 7 years old child can have orthodontics treatment if needed.

Braces can cause pain or discomfort, but it is not too much. The first time you put on your braces, you don’t feel pain. After that, your dentist puts bands around your back molar and applies special glue. Within a few hours, some pain and soreness begin to develop. This pain usually lasts one week. Your dentist prescribes some medicine for that pain until you get used to it.
