Antalya Orthodontic Treatments
Orthodontic treatment (usually with braces) is most often used to improve the appearance and alignment of crooked, protruding or crowded teeth, and to correct problems with the bite of the teeth.
Why would we need orthodontic treatment?
- Correction of dental crowding and straightening of your teeth,
- Correction of your bite so the front and back teeth meet evenly,
- Reducing the chance of damage to prominent teeth,
Many people have crowded or crooked teeth or their teeth do not meet correctly when they bite. These problems can mean it's harder to keep your teeth and gums clean and your teeth are more likely to become damaged.
In some cases, abnormal positioning of your teeth and jaw can affect the shape of your face. Orthodontics can also help in the treatment of other health problems, such as a cleft lip and palate. Orthodontic treatment is usually started after most of a child's adult teeth have started to come through.
This is usually when they're about 12 years old but it depends on how many of their adult teeth have come through and the growth of their face and jaws.
For adults, it can start at any age, but the treatment options would be more limited.
Treatment will not start unless you have a good standard of oral hygiene, as orthodontic treatment can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum problems.
