Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty of dental practice aiming to correct structural irregularities of the jaw and teeth. Common examples of these concerns include crooked teeth, poor spacing of the teeth, crowding, and misaligned jaws. 

Orthodontics also prevents the development of future problems through careful planning and specialized equipment. Braces, Invisalign®, and advanced software support orthodontic procedures. 


What are the benefits of orthodontics?

In addition to correcting jaw alignments, your bite, and tooth positions, orthodontics prevents the development and progression of other ailments. These corrections help prevent headaches and pain caused by poor structure. Also, when the oral cavity is evenly distributed, brushing and flossing become more accessible, reducing the risk of infection and gum disease.


Are braces the only form of treatment in orthodontics?

Braces are the most common and traditional form of orthodontic treatment. Braces safely secure wires and metal brackets onto the teeth with rubber bands to remedy irregularities. However, with today’s technological advancements, several other treatments fit your specific needs. 

Aligners have quickly become a popular orthodontic treatment option for adults. Aligners offer the same benefits as traditional treatment options, such as bracers and headgear. Products like  Invisalign offer a noninvasive option with a clear appearance that minimizes the tool’s appearance. 

Your dentist may also use appliances that support and expand the palate inside your mouth. Both removable and permanent options work to push your teeth outward while providing more space for rearrangement processes.


What are the risks associated with orthodontics?

When implemented properly by qualified professionals, orthodontic procedures offer minimal risks. You may experience temporary, minimal discomfort when the specialist implements necessary equipment. Additionally, the occasional sensation of soreness occurs and indicates treatment is working efficiently to maneuver teeth and space inside the oral cavity.


Are treatments for orthodontics affordable?

Treatment options vary depending on the selected service. There are many financing plans available to ensure affordable orthodontic services. Diamond Dental dedicates its practice to offering the most affordable and accessible options.
