Orthodontics is derived from a Greek word which means to straighten teeth. Orthodontic treatment aims to improve the appearance, position and function of crooked or abnormally arranged teeth. Orthodontics uses mechanical devices, such as a brace, over a certain period of time (usually 18 months to two years) to correct the position of the teeth.
Who needs Orthodontic Treatment?
Sometimes, a child's teeth and jaw do not develop in the normal way. The medical term for teeth that are out of position is "malocclusion". Some cases of malocclusion occur for no obvious reason. Other cases are the result of certain behaviours, such as frequent thumb sucking, or an injury to the teeth or bones of the face. Many cases of malocclusion do not pose serious health concerns. However, if malocclusion is not corrected during the teenage years, it may affect the appearance of the teeth and the shape of the face. This could cause psychological and emotional problems, such as lack of self-confidence, anxiety and depression.
More severe cases of malocclusion can affect the functioning ability of the teeth, mouth and jaw. For example, it can make it difficult for person to eat food; cleaning the teeth may be harder and the teeth may be vulnerable to damage.
