What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics, is a specialized field of dentistry, and is dedicated to diagnosing and treating "bad bites" or malocclusion. Popular orthodontic interventions encompass braces, clear aligners, and retainers. The alignment of your teeth plays a crucial role in oral health, influencing factors like cavities, gum disease, and erosion. By addressing the way upper and lower teeth meet, orthodontics can effectively reduce the risk of various oral health issues.

Who offers orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontists are the professionals overseeing this form of treatment. Distinguished as doctors with two to three years of supplementary training post-dental school, orthodontists specialize in bite enhancement. Unlike general dentists, they do not administer treatments such as fillings, crowns, or bridges.

When should I take my child to the orthodontist?

As per the American Association of Orthodontists, it is recommended that children undergo their initial orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. Although many children may not require immediate treatment, this early visit is valuable for identifying potential concerns. Early orthodontic intervention can often mitigate the need for extensive dental procedures later on, contributing to long-term oral health.

Who benefits from orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a valuable option for nearly everyone, with varying levels of need. While many individuals pursue orthodontic care for aesthetic reasons, desiring an enhanced smile, the benefits extend beyond cosmetics. Orthodontic treatment not only improves the appearance of your teeth but also enhances chewing function and overall oral health.

Common Orthodontic Problems

Orthodontic problems encompass a range of issues, including:

  • Overbite: where upper teeth extend beyond lower teeth.
  • Underbite: when lower teeth protrude more than upper teeth.
  • Overlapping teeth.
  • Crowded teeth.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Rotated teeth.
  • Impacted teeth: partially or fully trapped within the jawbone.

Who shouldn’t have orthodontic treatment?

For a patient to be recommended to have orthodontic treatment, it's crucial to be free from significant dental issues such as extensive decay or gum disease. Applying braces to compromised teeth can severely impact the patent's oral health.

If patients are dealing with cavities or gum disease, seek prompt treatment from a dentist. Once these conditions are addressed, the patients can consult with their dentist to determine if orthodontic treatment is a suitable option for them.

Procedure Details

What are examples of orthodontic treatment?

Within the realm of orthodontics, numerous treatments cater to diverse needs. Here are some prevalent options:

Braces

Braces work by gently guiding the patient's teeth into optimal alignment through a blend of brackets, bands, and wires. Tailored to individual needs, options include traditional metal braces and clear (ceramic) braces.

Clear Aligners

Clear orthodontic aligners, such as Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® utilize custom-made, clear aligner trays. Wearing each set for one to two weeks gradually shifts the patient's teeth into the desired positions, offering a discreet and effective orthodontic solution.

Retainers

After completing orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners, a custom retainer becomes crucial. This oral appliance prevents the patient's teeth from shifting out of their newly aligned positions. Patients should consult orthodontist for guidance on the recommended frequency for wearing their retainer to ensure lasting results.

Palate expanders

Orthodontic specialists often advise specific treatments during childhood due to the ongoing development of facial bones. The use of a palate (palatal) expander, for instance, aids in broadening a child's upper jaw. While not every child requires palate expanders, these devices can be beneficial in certain situations, creating additional space without resorting to tooth extractions or other procedures.

What are Carbide Burs?

Carbide Burs are dental rotary tools crafted from Tungsten-carbide material, a compound (WC) with equal parts carbon and tungsten atoms. Initially, a fine gray powder, it transforms into various shapes through sintering, finding applications in dental instruments, industrial machinery, cutting tools, chisels, abrasives, armor-piercing shells, and jewelry.

What are Dental carbide burs?

The popularity of tungsten carbide burs in dentistry has surged in recent years due to their excellence in the preparation, adjustment, and cutting of various materials. These dental burs, composed of a super-hard and highly resistant chemical compound, are ideal for precise cutting and drilling. In contrast to diamond burs, carbide dental burs leave a smoother surface rather than a rough one. They come in various types and sizes, distinguished by shank, head, and grit. Among the most sought-after types are inverted cone burs, straight fissure burs, straight fissure cross-cut burs, fissure tapered burs, short fissure burs, zekrya surgical burs, Lindemann burs, metal-cutting dental burs, cross-cut tapered fissure burs, and safe-ended endo burs.

Differences between Carbide and Diamond burs

Diamond and carbide burs vary in precision, durability, and surface roughness. Diamond burs offer greater accuracy and less invasiveness, minimizing the impact on the tooth's inner pulp. Carbide burs are known for durability, longevity, and resistance to heat. Opt for carbide burs for achieving a smoother surface, while diamond burs excel in high-speed grinding tasks like cutting zirconia or ceramic crowns.
