know more about Orthodontics
Allow me to educate you on the complicated & often misleading world of Orthodontics.
1. What are Orthodontics?
Some people have naturally straight teeth that fit together. But if you have problems with your bite or the spacing of your teeth, you may need orthodontic care. Orthodontia is the branch of dentistry that deals with abnormalities of the teeth and jaw.
Orthodontic care involves the use of devices, such as braces, to
Correct problems with bite
Close gaps between teeth
Align lips and teeth properly
Most people who receive orthodontic care are kids, but adults get braces, too. In young children, orthodontic treatment may guide proper jaw growth. This can help permanent teeth to come in properly. Straight permanent teeth can help prevent tooth problems later on.
Before giving someone braces, the orthodontist needs to diagnose what the problem is. This means making use of several different methods, including X-rays, photographs, impressions, models, and computers.
The X-rays give the orthodontist a good idea of where the teeth are positioned and if any more teeth have yet to come through the gums. Special X-rays that are taken from 360 degrees around the head may also be ordered; this type of X-ray shows the relationships of the teeth to the jaws and the jaws to the head. The orthodontist may also take regular photographs of the patient's face to better understand these relationships.
And finally, the orthodontist may need an impression made of the patient's teeth. This is done by having the patient bite down on a soft material that is used later to form an exact model of the teeth.
3.Types of Braces
at Dr.Khaled alsayed dental clinic we can outfit patients with a few different kinds of braces.
1- Some are made of lightweight metal and go around each tooth, while other metal ones are attached to the outside surfaces of the teeth with special glue.
2- Clear braces can be attached to the outside surfaces of the teeth, as can ceramic ones that are the same color as teeth. Some patients can get newer "mini-braces," which are much smaller, or "invisible braces," which are affixed to the inside surfaces of the teeth. In many cases, patients can choose which kind they want.
3- A recent addition to treatment options, braceless orthodontics, uses a series of clear removable appliances that are custom made and worn for specified amounts of time. These appliances exert pressure on the malpositioned teeth and move them gradually into their correct position.

Caring for Teeth With Braces
We will make sure that you know how to take special care of your teeth while your braces are on.
Braces, wires, springs, rubber bands, and other appliances can act like magnets for food and plaque, which can leave permanent stains on the teeth if not brushed away. we recommend brushing after meals with fluoride toothpaste and taking special care to remove food stuck in braces.
