Frequently Asked Questions about Orthodontic Treatments
What is orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontic treatment is centred around straightening the teeth with the aim of improving the health and appearance of the teeth.
Straight teeth are easier to clean that misaligned ones and are als less likely to experience problems in the future due to undue pressure caused by uneven bites.
How does orthodontic treatment work?
Orthodontists are able to help patients by creating custom-made dental appliances such as braces or aligners that fit onto the teeth and gently move them into their desired positions.
The braces are adjusted as the teeth move or, if the patient is using dental aligners, these are replaced every 2 weeks or so and until the teeth reach their final positions mapped out for them at the treatment planning stage.
How long does the treatment take?
The time required to complete treatment varies depending on the complexity of the treatment and the individual case. Some orthodontic treatments can be completed in a few months, whereas for more severe cases, the patient may need to wait up to 2 years for their treatment to be completed.
