Tips for Wearing Braces

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

Dental braces are the most common solution to crooked teeth, poor upper and lower jaw alignment, and pressure on temporomandibular joints. Braces may also improve structural aesthetics of the face. The alterations to the mouth and face with use of devices such as braces and dental appliances, is a branch of dentistry known as orthodontics. Orthodontics can be used to treat the aforementioned conditions in people of any age; however, the most ideal results are typically achieved in children, when the bones are not fully formed and are therefore more pliable for adjustment. Significant adjustment to the adult jawbone generally must be achieved through surgery. Learn more about affordable orthodontics as a solution to many dental care issues.

TMJ Therapy

Braces may be an effective treatment for reversing the necessity for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) therapy. TMJ issues are generally a result of the lower jaw being positioned too far back, compressing the blood vessels and nerves of the joint. Many patients suffering TMJ pain and discomfort turn to splint therapy to relieve the pressure. The splint moves the lower jaw to a new position. Following successful use of a splint, dental braces are needed to stabilize the new position of the jaw.

Overcoming Oral Fixations of Youth

Orthodontics are also useful in the treatment of infantile habits related to oral fixation, such as thumb sucking or using a pacifier. You do not need to be concerned with your child’s sucking habits unless they continue beyond the ages of six or seven. At this point, the permanent incisors and molars begin to erupt in the mouth and habitual sucking can cause a misaligned bite. It can also lead to teeth or lips that protrude and a distortion of the face. The impact of excessive sucking can be observed in the inward shape of the muscles of the cheek, which will cause the upper dental arch to constrict. Such an occurrence leaves the tongue without adequate space to rest and results in unnatural behaviors, like habitual tongue thrusting. It may also aggravate breathing and induce allergies. Pediatric orthodontists can help parents identify worrisome sucking habits in children and recommend solutions.

Other Treatments

Cleft palates, improper jawbone growth, and even evident disruptions to growth patterns while the baby teeth are still in place may be treated with orthodontics. Due to the limited years during which the bone can be altered with orthodontics, it is ideal to seek treatment the moment misalignments are observed in teeth or jaws. Regardless of the age that orthodontics are pursued, to optimally retain results, a retainer must be worn at night for the duration of the lifespan.
