Braces, one of the dental instruments used in orthodontic treatment; These are mostly metal tools that are misaligned, superimposed, used to straighten curved and crooked teeth or jaws. Orthodontic treatment is not only concerned with the appearance of your teeth, it is also very necessary for dental and oral health. Overlapping teeth are difficult to clean and therefore can lead to dental caries and gum disease.
With this treatment, it is also aimed to provide the bite force and pressure distribution that is spread evenly on the teeth, to prevent dental caries and to create oral hygiene. Braces can be applied at any age for children and adults, with all teeth completed. Although braces are not preferred by adults due to an aesthetic problem, one of the five people who apply for orthodontic treatment is observed to be adults. Oblique and crooked teeth are one of the most common mouth problems. In orthodontic treatment, the teeth that are positioned incorrectly by using braces are flattened and seated. The teeth are both straightened in appearance and easy to clean. Thus, teeth with improved bite shape can fulfill their functions in a healthy way.
Improperly positioned teeth can cause tension in the mouth and jaw muscles, and may even cause headaches. Deformations in the teeth can also cause speech impairment. You can have a dental examination checked if you need orthodontic treatment. Your dental x-ray may also be requested if it is deemed necessary after the examination. You can get information about which dental treatment you should receive at the consultation and the treatment process. Models of your teeth are created by taking photos of your jaws and teeth from different fronts.
