How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?

We have been straightening smiles for years through Amazing Smile’s orthodontics, where Surrey and Langley residents can correct their misaligned teeth and improve their bites. Orthodontics is process of slowly shifting and correcting the alignment of teeth through different appliances made of metal, ceramic, and/or plastic. These appliances might be removable plates (retainers) or they might be metal brackets and wires adhered to your teeth (braces). We usually associate braces with a part of the teenage experience, but because of modern advancements orthodontics are for anyone of any age. Modern orthodontic methods make for a far less invasive process than in the past: Appliances are less noticeable, more comfortable, and work quicker. A beautiful, straight smile is easier to achieve than ever before.

How Do I Know If Orthodontic Treatment is Right for Me?

If you are unsatisfied with the state of your smile then we have a solution for you. Typically patients suffer from a handful of different of issues that affect the alignment of their teeth. The following issues can all be corrected by orthodontic work from Amazing Smile:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Open bite
  • Deep overbite
  • Underbite
  • Spacing of teeth
  • Overjet

Even though the Canadian Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist at the age of seven, treatment is not exclusive to children and teens. Since the process is the same at any age, about one in every five orthodontic patients are older than 21.

However, orthodontics can do a lot more than fix just your smile or correct an aesthetic issue. In fact, misaligned teeth can lead to other more serious problems if left untreated:
  • Bite: While straight teeth are nice, your bite is just as important. Having a proper bite is crucial to effective mastication (the process of chewing). And, because chewing is the first step in the digestive process, any out-of-sorts bite can damage your metabolism and digestive system.
  • TMJ: Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMJ, is a more common problem than you might think. Though it is worsened by stress, the problem can be alleviated through proper teeth alignment. The worst part about TMJ is that if the resulting tooth bruxism goes on for too long, your teeth can begin to wear out. When the enamel on your teeth wears down, you become more vulnerable to cavities and eventual tooth decay. TMJ can be alleviated through proper teeth alignment.

How Long Will Treatment Last?

The average length of treatment can last anywhere between six and 30 months, but most standard treatments take about 22 months. But your specific timing completely depends on a few factors like the severity of your condition, age, and treatment methods. As you explore your treatment options with your Amazing Smile dentist, he or she will be able to give you a better sense of how long you can expect your process to be.
