Orthodontists for children is designed to treat a wide range of problems from: Crooked teeth; Protruding front teeth, Reverse bites, missing teeth and unattractive gaps between the teeth.
Orthodontic (Braces) treatment corrects the irregularities of your teeth. Teeth in irregular position lead to an undesirable appearance, and smile. To correct such problems, one has to go through this treatment. Wires and brackets help to move teeth from their current position to the correct position. Orthodontic treatment helps in improving the oral health condition and facial bone development too. Orthodontic treatment not only improves the look of your teeth, it may prevent bigger dental problems from developing later in life.
Braces work by applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move teeth in a specific direction. As the teeth move, the bone changes shape as pressure is applied.
The mechanical process used to move teeth with braces is the same at any age. So the benefits of orthodontic treatments are available to both children and adults who wish to improve their appearance and bite. The main differences between treatments in adults and children is that certain corrections in adults may require more than braces alone and the treatments may take longer because adult bones are no longer growing.
