Dr. Naeem is an advocate of 'face-driven' orthodontics, wherein the patient's facial profile and bone structure are taken into consideration when determining the orthodontic treatment plan. This approach would allow Dr. Naeem not only to achieve the desired smile but also to ensure a balanced and more harmonic facial appearance.
An orthodontist specializes in the branch of dentistry that focuses on the development of the face and teeth to achieve the best aesthetics, position and function. An orthodontist can provide treatment options on handcrafting your smile by aligning the teeth to create a more natural bite.
In general, it is recommended to visit your orthodontist when your child is about 7 years old as the orthodontic concerns will start becoming visible by that age.
Although the orthodontist may not initiate immediate treatment, the initial appointment can enable the orthodontist to identify potential facial growth concerns, prevent orthodontic issues going forward and help the specialist arrive at a treatment plan if required. There is a general consensus that the preferred age to do orthodontic treatment is between the ages of 8 and 14.
As long as the periodontium (supporting gums and bone) and teeth are healthy, there is no specific age limit for braces and any patient with an orthodontic concern can benefit from braces. In adults, the bone tissue is denser and may take slightly longer time to align teeth to its new positions. Although this can mean a more involved treatment process in most cases, the right orthodontic treatment plan is usually all that is required to straighten and align teeth at any age.
Most people tend to experience some mild discomfort for the first week when the braces are initially installed as a response to the teeth being moved. This is primarily due to the pressure of the brackets and wires slowly pulling the teeth into alignment.
It is recommended to brush teeth after every meal and snack when you wear braces.
Orthodontic tooth movement can vary from person to person. In some cases, you can start noticing changes in your teeth as early as 4 weeks from being fitted with braces. Studies show that the teeth movement on an average is about 1mm per month.
It depends on the type of treatment. In general, your orthodontist will see you every 4 to 8 weeks to monitor your treatment.
