Orthodontics Çayyolu Ümitköy

The word “orthodontics” is derived from the words orthos, meaning proper or straight and odons meaning teeth. Orthodontics is specifically concerned with diagnosing and treatment of misaligned tooth and irregularity in the jaw area. Orthodontic treatment aims to provide the perfect alignment of the teeth. Initially, orthodontic treatments were geared toward the treatment of teens and pre-teens, but these days around 50 percent of orthodontic patients are adults.

Here are some of the benefits of orthodontic treatment:

*Easier cleaning and better oral hygiene,

*A more clearer and fluent speech

*A more pleasant smile

*A better chewing function.

Though orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, the Turkish Dental Association suggests that an orthodontic assessment should be performed around the age of seven. The earlier orthodontic treatment begins, the more quickly the problem can be successfully resolved.

What problems can be treated with orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a versatile branch of dentistry that can be used alone, or in combination with maxillofacial or cosmetic dentistry.

Here are some of the common conditions treated with orthodontics:

* Anteroposterior deviations – The discrepancy between a pair of closed jaws is known as an anteroposterior discrepancy or deviation. An example of such a discrepancy would be an overbite (where the upper teeth are further forward than the lower teeth), or an underbite (where the lower teeth are further forward then the upper teeth).

* Overcrowding – Overcrowding is a common orthodontic problem. It occurs when there is an insufficient space for the normal growth and development of adult teeth.

* Aesthetic problems – A beautiful straight smile may be interrupted by a single misaligned tooth. This tooth can be realigned with ease and accuracy by the orthodontist. Alternatively, orthodontists can also work to reshape and restructure the lips, jaw or the face.

We wish you a healthy smile and a very nice day=)
