Orthodontics

Achieving a Straighter, Healthier Smile

Orthodontics in dentistry focuses on the alignment and positioning of teeth and jaws. It encompasses the identification, prevention, and correction of dental and facial irregularities. Orthodontic treatments aim to straighten teeth, correct bite issues, and enhance the overall appearance and functionality of your smile. At Newcastle Dental Care, we offer a range of orthodontic solutions to help you achieve a straighter and healthier smile.

Why might a person need orthodontics?

Misaligned Teeth

Crooked or Misaligned Teeth

One of the most common reasons for seeking orthodontic treatment is to address crooked or misaligned teeth. Orthodontic appliances, such as braces or clear aligners, apply gentle and controlled forces to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment, resulting in a straighter and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Jaw Joint Disorders

Bite Irregularities

Orthodontics can correct various bite irregularities, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. These issues can affect proper chewing, speech, and jaw function. By aligning the teeth and jaws, orthodontic treatment can improve bite alignment and promote overall oral health.

Active Lifestyles

Dental Crowding or Spacing

Orthodontics can address dental crowding, where there is insufficient space in the dental arch for all the teeth. It can also close gaps or spaces between teeth caused by missing teeth or natural gaps. By creating proper spacing, orthodontic treatment enhances oral hygiene, reduces the risk of decay and gum disease, and improves the overall appearance of the smile.

jaw irregularities

Jaw Irregularities

Some individuals may have jaw irregularities, such as an overdeveloped or underdeveloped jaw. Orthodontic treatment, often in conjunction with other dental specialities, can help align the jaws, improve facial symmetry, and enhance overall oral function.

Orthodontic Protection

Improved Confidence

A straighter and more harmonious smile can significantly boost self-confidence and self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment not only enhances the appearance of your smile but also positively impacts your overall well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

What factors influence the duration of orthodontic treatment?

The duration of orthodontic treatment is contingent upon factors such as the complexity of the case, the type of treatment administered, and individual considerations. On average, orthodontic treatment can range from several months to a few years. During your consultation, our orthodontic specialists will provide an estimated treatment timeline based on your specific needs.

Are braces the only option for orthodontic treatment?

Braces are a common orthodontic treatment, but they are not the only option. Clear aligners, such as Invisalign®, are an alternative for mild to moderate orthodontic corrections. However, not all cases are suitable for aligners, and braces may be recommended for more complex issues. Our orthodontic specialists will assess your case and recommend the most appropriate treatment option for you.

Will orthodontic treatment be painful?

You may experience some discomfort or pressure after orthodontic adjustments, but it is typically temporary and manageable. Non-prescription pain relievers can aid in mitigating any discomfort. Our team will provide instructions on how to manage any temporary discomfort during your orthodontic treatment.

Can adults benefit from orthodontic treatment?

Absolutely! Orthodontic treatment extends beyond children and teenagers, encompassing individuals of all ages. Many adults choose orthodontic treatment to improve their smile’s appearance, correct bite issues, and enhance their overall oral health. We offer orthodontic solutions specifically designed for adult patients.

Will I need to wear retainers after orthodontic treatment?

Yes, retainers are an essential part of orthodontic treatment. They assist in preserving the newly achieved position of your teeth and prevent any potential regression or shifting. Our orthodontic specialists will provide detailed instructions on retainer wear and care to ensure the long-term stability of your orthodontic results.
