Can Braces Fix Teeth Crowding?
Teeth crowding is an occurrence where several teeth grow across a single jaw. The overcrowding happens due to insufficient space that forces the teeth to change their positions and huddle together. This commonly occurs in children or in adults that did not make necessary corrections at a younger stage in their lives.
This can be easily rectified using a number of interventions, one being installing dental braces that consist of archwires and brackets. These are placed and woven above, below, or around the surface of your teeth to adjust any misalignments, spacing, and protrusion issues. This mediation can also be used to correct overcrowding of teeth in certain individuals with the expertise of an
Dental braces are best recommended for children as their teeth are still in the developmental stages. This procedure might involve additional dental work, it can include the removal of a tooth or two, in order to create sufficient space to align the other teeth to move into alignment.
Alternately for adults, the procedure might be more complicated as overcrowding is a more permanent condition. In your consultation with an orthodontist, a treatment method can be chosen to make the right correction for your teeth.
Types of Dental Braces
When dental braces are used for teeth overcrowding, they are available in 2 types of services: a permanent one versus a temporary. This is decided by the dentist depending on the degree of intervention necessary. Temporary braces can be worn for a certain number of recommended hours within the day and removed by you. As for the permanent solution, it needs to be installed and removed only by your orthodontist.
The temporary kind of dental braces are appropriate for individuals that need a slight adjustment to clear out their teeth’ inconvenient placement. These types of braces are otherwise known as clear aligners and are required to be changed every 2 weeks to adapt to the changing placements of each individual tooth. They are prescribed to both adults as well as children, depending on the extensiveness of the overcrowding.
The permanent solutions include metal braces that are placed on the front side of each tooth for severe cases of overcrowding. For an intermediate severity, ceramic braces are installed at the back of the teeth. These are available in a shade that is complementary to your own teeth that ensures little or no visible difference between the tooth and the braces. This is the most desirable option that offers an intrinsic look along with the needed correction.
The Treatment Plan
Your dentist can determine the best course of action to be taken with the help of an X-ray followed by pictures and impressions of your teeth. This helps the orthodontist understand the extent of overcrowding and choose the apt means of correction given the individual position of each tooth.
A point to keep in mind is that once your teeth have been cleared of overcrowding, the treatment does not end there entirely. A device known as a retainer must be worn for typically a year's worth of time to ensure that your teeth do not revert back to their uneven positions. The exact time period is prescribed by your dentist depending on the various factors affecting the new placement of your teeth.
