Orthodontics in Guntur, Hyderabad, Bhimavaram, Mancherial

Orthodontics Home

Orthodontics is a type of dentistry which deals with improper positioning of teeth. A person may have an over bite, under bite, crooked teeth or a jaw misalignment, overcrowding of teeth which could cause eating or speech problems. In such cases, orthodontic treatments are done to slowly change the position of the teeth to be straighter and more aligned. Orthodontics can also be used for cosmetic purposes if the person wishes to have a better smile. We have best Orthodontics working in our hospital at all branches located in Guntur, Hyderabad (Vivekananda Nagar, Kukatpally), Bhimavaram and Mancherial.

The benefits of Orthodontics are:
Orthodontics is necessary because misaligned teeth or improper positioning can lead to a higher risk of tooth decay and gingivitis. An improper bite can make teeth harder or more painful to floss, leading to poor oral hygiene in those particular regions which can affect your oral health.

Orthodontics is an effective treatment method that can be used to:
  1. Straighten crooked teeth.
  2. Close gaps between teeth.
  3. Ensure that your teeth and jaw are properly aligned.
  4. Improve oral function (such as eating or speech).
  5. Mend improper bites.

Lingual Orthodontics

Most of the orthodontics problem can be corrected by using lingual orthodontics with the conventional labial technique that includes malposition of teeth, anteroposterior discrepancies and pre-prosthetic surgical cases. This system consists of specially designed brackets which is suitable to be placed in the lingual surface of the tooth. The adult patients segment has higher resistance in committing to orthodontic treatments as opposed to younger patients. The lingual orthodontic treatment has become a treatment of choice due to its aesthetic appeal for most adults with the increasing number of adult patients in orthodontic practices.
Lingual orthodontics is one of the good options for comprehensive treatment of most malocclusions because of the lingual surfaces of the teeth appear to be less prone to caries than the buccal surfaces due to differences in surface morphology, plaque retention, salivary flow and the mechanical cleaning of surfaces by the tongue.

Invisaligns

Invisalign aligners are an effective alternative to metal braces. Most patients get the same results with these clear aligners that they would achieve with brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are clear, unobtrusive, and easily removable.
Invisaligns can be removed at any time. Just pop them out at mealtime and brush your teeth carefully before putting the aligners back in. Invisalign is a comfortable alternative to traditional braces. Living with Invisalign is easier than you might think.

Malocclusion

The term Malocclusion refers to the abnormal alignment of the teeth and the way in which the upper and lower teeth fit together. Normally, the upper teeth overlap slightly outside the lower teeth.
There are several causes of malocclusion, including:
  1. Mismatch between jaw size and size of teeth.
  2. Thumb sucking or tongue thrusting habit.
  3. Premature or congenital loss of missing teeth.
Your orthodontist may recommend various treatments depending on the type of malocclusion which includes:
  1. Braces to correct the position of the teeth.
  2. Removal of teeth to correct overcrowding.
  3. Reshaping, bonding, or capping of teeth.
  4. Surgery to reshape or shorten the jaw.
  5. Use of wires or plates to stabilize the jaw bone.

Child Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment in young children is called as interceptive orthodontics, and it can start at the early age of 6 or 7. At this age, teeth are still developing and the jaw is still growing. That means certain conditions, such as crowding, may be easier to address.
It is important to note that early treatment does not apply to all orthodontic problems; however, it may help in certain cases.
Two conditions that need early intervention are crossbites and protruding front teeth.
  1. A crossbite can cause the jaws to grow unevenly.
  2. Front teeth that stick out may be fractured or injured in an accident, such as a fall.

Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical orthodontics is also known as orthognathic surgery. It is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct severe cases that include bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities and malocclusion. Surgical orthodontics may be used to treat adults with improper bites or other aesthetic concerns. Jaw growth stops by age 16 in females and 18 in males typically. In order to receive orthognathic surgery, the jaw must be done growing. The need for surgical orthodontics occurs when the jaws do not line up correctly, and a proper bite cannot be achieved with orthodontic treatment alone. Surgical Orthodontics will help properly align the jaw and orthodontic braces will then be used to move the teeth into their proper position.

Adult Orthodontics

Investing in a smile makeover can have significant benefits, socially and professionally. Straightening teeth can be a vital part of that confidence-boosting makeover process. Adult Orthodontic treatment can be done for crooked teeth or uneven bites, just as it is for children and teenagers. Some of the most common situations where orthodontic treatment might be considered in adults are: Realignment of the teeth prior to the placement of veneers, crowns, implants or even dentures. At any age, healthy teeth can be moved so there is no such thing as being too old for braces.

Ortho Home care

General Soreness
You may feel general soreness in your mouth, and your teeth may be tender to biting pressure for three to five days, when you get your braces or orthodontic appliance. Rinsing your mouth with cold water can help relieve some soreness. If the discomfort is severe, every 6-8 hours for the first 48 hours, Tylenol or Motrin pain reliever is recommended. If your lips, cheeks and tongue become irritated, you can use orthodontic wax to alleviate the irritation.
Brushing and Flossing
When you have braces or an orthodontic appliance, it is very important to brush and floss regularly. Brushing three times per day or after every meal is recommended. Make sure the teeth are completely free of food and plaque.
It is important to get floss under your orthodontic wire, and then the floss is pushed up toward the gum line and then pulled down towards the wire to ensure all plaque is removed.
Eating
Stick to soft foods for the first few days. You'll need to protect your braces and orthodontic appliances while eating for as long as you wear them.
Foods to avoid:
  1. Ice.
  2. Hard and sticky candy.
  3. Gum.
  4. Hard potato chips.
  5. Soda.
Emergency Care
If you have an emergency such as a broken bracket, loose or poking wire, or anything else that is causing discomfort, please call your dentist.

Invisible Braces

Invisible braces are the latest technology in the field of orthodontics. It is ideal for the people who want their teeth to be straightened but are conscious about their appearance and do not want wires to be hanging from their teeth all the time. This process can straighten your crooked teeth without the use of metal, ceramic, wires or any lingual brackets. These braces work just like the conventional ones and correct irregular or protruding tooth/ teeth.
Adults who do not wish to meddle with their looks and are running short of time can go for this slightly more expensive process. This treatment is painless and does not require anaesthesia or hospitalisation.
