Common questions, answered...

What do orthodontic records entail and why are they indispensable?

Orthodontic records encompass X-rays, dental and facial photographs, and tooth models. These records offer comprehensive insights beyond visual inspection, revealing details like tooth and root conditions, jaw and facial growth patterns, symmetry, and more. They serve as the cornerstone for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment planning.

Why is "Early Treatment" advocated for certain children?

Early intervention can proactively steer jaw and teeth alignment, enhance jaw growth, maintain space for permanent teeth, and mitigate risks of fracturing protruding front teeth, fostering more favorable dental outcomes.

How does orthodontic therapy impact psychology?

Orthodontic treatment can alleviate appearance concerns, particularly during formative years, influencing aspects such as popularity, social interactions, self-perception, and confidence. It may also mitigate chances of bullying. In adults, it can positively affect career progression, social integration, and self-assurance.

Why is the adolescent growth spurt pivotal in orthodontics?

The adolescent growth spurt phase signifies significant facial development. Treatment during this period offers a window to positively influence facial profile without resorting to surgical interventions later in life, potentially saving both time and expenses.

At what age is an individual considered too old for braces?

Age does not preclude adults from benefiting from orthodontic treatment. As long as teeth and supporting structures are healthy, adults can pursue orthodontic therapy, with an increasing number opting for lifelong benefits like an enhanced smile and boosted confidence.
