Correction of bite is possible at any age, but the older the person, the more difficult it is to do it – the treatment takes longer, and its cost is much higher. We are approached with various problems – disorders of the growth of teeth, congenital malocclusion, significant interdental spaces, etc. This is not the whole list of problems that can be dealt with by resorting to the help of an orthodontist and special constructions.
Correcting the occlusion with braces prevents a large number of dental problems. First of all, malocclusion is an excessive load on the teeth, which can cause negative changes in the temporomandibular joint. An incorrect bite significantly complicates the hygiene procedures, as a result of which the risk of caries and inflammatory processes in soft tissues increases. Many of us do not realize that facial asymmetries, microcracks in the enamel, increased tooth wear, cervical defects and, as a result, increased tooth sensitivity are also associated with an incorrect bite.
There are the following types of bite:
An incorrect bite is not only an external defect, but also a high risk of facing various dental problems, diseases of the digestive system.
This can be avoided with the help of timely treatment, for which the following methods are used:
In addition, a set of exercises – myotherapy – can be prescribed to correct the occlusion. It is especially effective in young children. Exercise develops the jaw bones, reduces the risk of malocclusion in the future, which creates favorable conditions for the correct growth of permanent teeth.
Surgical occlusion correction is practiced in difficult cases when it is not possible to correct the occlusion using the above methods. In this case, maxillary or mandibular osteotomy, aesthetic genioplasty (face asymmetry correction) are performed.
In adults, bite alignment without braces is impossible. Their jaw bones are already fully formed, so removable appliances will be ineffective. Crowns are not a contraindication to the installation of a bracket system. It is possible both to move the tooth under the crown, and to use it as a reference when correcting the position of other teeth in the dentition. If a patient has a veneer installed before bite correction, there is a risk that it will have to be changed after braces. If the plan is a complex correction of the dentition (alignment and elimination of defects), then first it is advisable to correct the bite, and only then to install veneers.
To help your child not have to wear braces for a long time, be sure to visit an orthodontist.
Common reasons for the formation of an incorrect bite:
In childhood, you can use removable orthodontic structures that are installed on one or two jaws. They do not cause discomfort, you can remove them yourself, so nothing can interfere with the upcoming holiday or photo session. They are worn for at least 12 hours a day, which helps to correct the identified violations and prevent more serious defects.
To avoid the need for your child to wear bite correction machines for a long time in the future, make an appointment with an orthodontist at our clinic. Don’t forget that eight out of ten people are born with a malocclusion, but modern dentistry has everything to cope with these disorders.
