When need for orthodontic treatment?
To have a bright smile, of course, it is inseparable from a set of white and straight teeth. While everyone wants to smile beautifully, the reality is often less than satisfactory. It can be said that good-looking teeth are always the same, and bad teeth have their own styles:
Some people have sparse teeth, the gap between the teeth is large, and the teeth are stuck after eating;
Some people prefer to crowd their teeth together, and the neat teeth are crowded into a pile;
Some people’s front teeth don’t stay in place properly, they just stick out and turn into buck teeth;
There are also people whose lower teeth cover the upper ones, forming an unsightly sky.
Misaligned teeth are not just a face problem, it has four consequences:
- Affects occlusion and chewing of teeth
No matter what kind of dental deformity it is, it will affect the normal occlusion and chewing of the teeth, cause the mandibular joint to be disordered, and over time, it will cause gastrointestinal dysfunction, and even cause changes in facial shape.
2, bring oral diseases
Misaligned teeth can easily cause oral diseases, such as crowded teeth, which will make the food residue between the teeth unable to be cleaned in time, which will easily breed oral bacteria for a long time, leading to periodontitis, tooth decay, toothache, and bleeding gums. Loose teeth etc.
3. Affect normal pronunciation
For example, the gap between the teeth is wide, and the front teeth are sparse, which will affect the normal pronunciation and cause slurred speech.
4. Feeling inferior
Irregular teeth will make people feel insecure, they will not dare to laugh like others, and they will not dare to show their teeth when taking pictures. They will always envy others for having good teeth.
Orthodontic treatment, also known as orthodontic treatment, is necessary at this time. However, adults always have concerns about orthodontic treatment. They are afraid of spending money and time, and the orthodontic effect will not be good when they are older.
So, I would like to know if it is possible for adults to do orthodontic treatment? When do you need orthodontic treatment?
Can adults have orthodontic treatment?
In fact, orthodontic treatment is suitable for all ages. Even at the age of 80, as long as the teeth are healthy, they can be rectified. It is normal for the teeth to move during the growth process. However, each person’s situation is different, and the timing to start the orthodontic treatment will also be different. , you can ask a professional orthodontist for correction advice.
The doctors of Beijing Jonson Bromatological Hospital have been strictly screened. Most of the doctors working now have skilled orthodontic technology and many years of clinical experience. They can give professional answers to whether they need to straighten their teeth. Friends who want to do orthodontics can go to Consult.
In short, there is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. Although adults are fully developed, they are more difficult to straighten than children and take longer to straighten, but they can still do orthodontics.
When is orthodontic treatment necessary?
Some people know that there is something wrong with their teeth, but they are not sure if it is necessary to straighten them.
Usually, when the teeth are crooked, irregular, deep overbite, overbite, crooked, overlying, or occlusal problems, etc., we recommend orthodontic treatment.
Of course, you still have to analyze specific problems in detail, or as the old saying goes, go to a regular dental hospital for an examination, and let a professional dentist give you the exact treatment plan. If you have periodontal disease, people with oral problems need to be treated first and then have their teeth straightened.
From a long-term point of view, we recommend that if conditions permit, the earlier the correction time, the better. Correction of teeth is actually an investment that is not correct, effective and cost-effective. Of course, the premise is to go to a good dental hospital.
