What is Orthodontics? How can orthodontics contribute to your wellbeing?

Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that aims to align the positioning of inaccurately situated teeth when the mouth is closed. This dispositioning is called malocclusion, and it causes an abnormal bite. In other words, an orthodontist specializes in straightening the teeth. Orthodontics carries out treatment either for cosmetic or appearance reasons. In addition to making oral functions better and treating malocclusions.

In scientific terms, orthodontics is the area of dentistry that studies the growth and development of the teeth and relevant anatomical structures from birth to dental maturity.

Our Patients Can Find All Kinds of Dental Braces at Levantine Dental Clinic

The periodontal ligament located around our teeth and under the gums absorbs the shock of hard textured foods such as apples and carrots. This shock absorber preserves the teeth and jawbone from all chewing forces. However, when the teeth are misaligned, chewing food and talking become a hassle. Therefore, braces are applied to tether the teeth, pulling them together or pushing them apart. Braces apply steady force to the patient’s teeth. When the periodontal ligament senses sustained force, parts of the jawbone get dissolved and new bone is formed. Hence, braces force your body to dissolve and build parts of your jawbone to be in perfect shape. Many kinds of dental braces align teeth, including eon aligner, Invisalign, lingual, Damon system, and others. Each kind is related to a specific set of metrics that the dentist takes into consideration to choose the option that fits each patient best.



What are Crystal and Metal Braces?

Both crystal and metal braces deliver the needed results perfectly, however, there are some advantages of crystal braces over metal ones. One of the biggest advantages is aesthetics. Crystal brackets are designed to be invisible and blend in with the patient’s natural tooth color. Crystal braces are also not as obvious as metal braces in person or pictures. Therefore, if a patient is looking for a discreet option, dentists recommend lingual braces which go on the inside of the patient’s teeth or Invisalign. Both crystal braces and metal braces work for teenagers and adults. However, patients who have to be in meetings often favor crystal braces over metal. These patients are usually adults.


What is the Damon System and How is it Different from Traditional Braces?

Dr. Dwight Damon introduced the Damon System in 1996 to mitigate the friction between the wires and the brackets. Damon Braces use a special slide method that reduces friction and gives more freedom to the teeth.
Damon braces are different from traditional ones in regards to their method of holding the wire in the slot of the bracket. They allow the orthodontist to carry out non-extraction treatments. Therefore, there is no need to extract one or more teeth to make space.
The Damon System is the ideal system for patients who have a lot of overcrowding. Damon braces also result in creating wide smiles without the need for uncomfortable expanders. Moreover, they move the teeth with lighter forces than the forces applied by the other traditional braces. The Damon system is the best adult system, but it can be used for teenagers as well.


Lingual Braces

What are Lingual Braces and How do they Work?

Lingual braces are fixed braces that deliver the exact results as traditional braces. However, the difference is that lingual braces are situated behind the teeth. Therefore, lingual braces act as the best cosmetic alternative for patients who do not prefer their braces to show.
The process of getting lingual braces is simple and takes about six weeks. First, a dental professional takes an impression of the patient’s teeth. The dental impression sends the impression to the dental lab. The impression is used to create customized brackets at the lab.
The process for lingual braces is simple. A dental professional will take an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to a dental laboratory and used to create customized brackets. This process takes about six weeks.
After the brackets are finalized, the orthodontist will cement the braces onto the back of the patient’s teeth. Lingual braces function the exact way traditional ones do. They apply continuous pressure on the teeth to make them shift into the correct position. The treatment can take a year and a half to three years. The period depends on each case separately, a patient’s teeth overcrowding or bite.
Invisalign Braces

What are Invisalign Braces and How do they Work?

Invisalign braces aim to straighten the patient’s teeth without the use of metal braces. It is clear braces that cover the patient’s teeth and alter their position to become correct with time. Invisalign is less noticeable than traditional metal braces as it is clear and can be taken on and off. Most patients want to enhance their smile and are unaware of options other than traditional, metal braces. Invisalign braces don’t require metal brackets or wires. All they need is clear plastic aligners that the patients wear on their teeth. This is the reason they are the most common kind of braces. Moreover, they deliver the results in half of the time traditional braces would. Invisalign treatment is suitable for teenagers as well as adults.

Invisible Braces – Clear Aligners and How they Differ from Invisalign

Invisible braces are made of transparent, clear plastic and are widely known as clear aligners. They are hardly visible to others. Orthodontists create customized plastic aligners that perfectly fit each patient’s teeth. The patients wear the clear aligner on their teeth, and they can take it off. To notice continuous progress and transformation to the correct positioning of teeth, the patient should visit the dentist regularly. Clear aligners are comfortable to wear as they don’t cause any pain or cuts in the patient’s mouth. In addition, they don’t need installation. Therefore, they are suitable for all ages.
Clear aligner is similar to Invisalign, however, there are a few differences. The most important difference to know is that they differ in thickness. Clear aligners are thinner, which requires lighter material to create them. Consequently, making clear aligners less visible than Invisalign.

Therefore, it increases patients’ oral health. Moreover, teeth that fit together function properly, so they do not wear down faster over time. Above all, orthodontic treatments significantly increase patients’ self-esteem after the treatment is complete. In addition, as children’s permanent teeth grow in, parents should monitor that growth. For example, whether there is enough room for teeth or are they crowded? Are they coming into a semi-appropriate position? Parents have to work with our orthodontists to guide those teeth into the right spot as they are erupting.

Another crucial issue our orthodontists monitor and treat is bite correction. How is the child’s bite fitting together? Is the bottom jaw off to one side or the other? Is the bottom jaw out too far or is it back too far? Are there any habits such as finger habits or prolonged binky habits?
