Orthodontic treatment refers to the use of braces or other devices to correct dental and jaw misalignments, which can cause issues with bite, speech, and appearance.
Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment and involve attaching brackets and wires to the teeth, which are then adjusted over time to gradually shift the teeth into their correct position.
Other orthodontic treatments may include clear aligners, such as Invisalign, which are removable trays that gradually shift the teeth into position. Orthodontic appliances, such as headgear, are sometimes used to correct more severe bite problems, and orthodontic surgery may be required for cases that cannot be corrected with other treatments.
Orthodontic treatment can be beneficial for both children and adults and can help to improve dental health, self-confidence, and overall quality of life. The length and cost of treatment can vary depending on the severity of the misalignment and the chosen treatment method. It is important to consult with an orthodontist to determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs.
