Orthodontic braces are an advanced method in modern dental treatment. More than 10 years ago, you may have difficulty figuring out how this method works. However, orthodontic today is no longer strange. So do you know which cases should be orthodontic treated? Let’s take a look.
According to the analysis and classification of dental professionals, some of the following situations are common in orthodontic patients in Vietnam
1 / Crowded teeth:
This is very easy to see with the naked eye, the number of teeth on your jaw more than the position need to teethe. Therefore, the teeth crowded together, pushed each other very messy.
In this case, it is usually necessary to remove the tooth, make a gap on the jaw, and pull the other teeth to the desired position.
Note: Tooth extraction is only most effective under the direction of the orthodontist.
2/ Sparse teeth, missing teeth or loss of teeth:
In this situation, it is up to the individual who the orthodontist will consider using whichever method is most appropriate.
In cases of missing teeth or loss of teeth, the tendency of neighboring teeth to move to the empty space, leading to other areas of teeth will be sparse.
Solution: The orthodontist can move the tooth to close the gap or widen the gap at the missing tooth position, so that you can recover missing teeth by implant or porcelain bridges.
3/ Protruding teeth:
When the upper jaw protrudes more than the lower jaw (overgrowth), or the teeth of upper jaw protrude, or the lower jaw develops poorly
Refer to the following clip:
This is the wrong bite situation Class II Angle. And depending on the reality of each patient, there will be a single or combined treatment.
If the problem is due to a misalignment, or a light protrusion, the orthodontist can use the braces to pull the teeth toward the correct axis. Maybe in some situations need to extract teeth.
But if the problem is due to the development of the jaw bone, it should be combined surgical cutting of the jaw bone.
This surgery is performed at the Dental Faculties in Hospital.
4/ Underbite teeth in orthodontic:
Because the lower jawbone is overgrown, it is also possible that the upper jaw bone develops poorer, or by trending teeth inward.
Easiest to see in reverse articulation bite expression compared to ordinary people, teeth of lower jaw covered with upper jaw.
This is the wrong bite situation Class III Angle. As well as protruding teeth, depending on the cause of the disease have appropriate treatment.
If the underbite is caused by a teeth problem, or a light underbite, the orthodontist will be able to apply the braces to help your teeth return to the standard of the bite properly.
However, if the lower jaw develops to a severe degree, or if the jaw remains severely underdeveloped; We will need surgical facial surgery, cut and move the jaw bone in standard proportions.
This operation is also required to be performed at the Dental Facial in Hospital
5/ Some bite defects: deep bite, open bite, cross bite
Normally, in the standard bite, the upper teeth will cover the lower teeth, and the coverage is only about 2/3 of the upper teeth (in closed state).
Therefore, if the bite is deep, the upper teeth will overly cover the lower teeth, which can cover the gingival margin of the lower jaw.
Open bite is the incisors of the upper and lower jaw are open, not closed when the jaw is in the normal closed state.
Cross bite is the condition of the lower jaw over the upper jaw. It can occur on many teeth, or some teeth before or after.
6/ Underground teeth:
You may be very surprised when you find your child is experiencing this condition. The teeth on the mouth are missing or are being sparse. And there are teeth in the underground, may be new or not disclosed.
This is often the case in canines and front teeth.
It also depends on the medical situation which the doctor will appoint to remove or surgery to reveal the teeth to pull the teeth to the desired position.
Parents often monitor, observe the development of the baby teeth, will soon detect abnormalities at the stage of replacing baby teeth. If a milk-tooth have lasts too long compared to the normal time, while the symmetrical tooth is replaced; Then the child should be taken to the dentist for taking the film and timely intervention.
