Depending on your problem, the dental professional will be choosing a suitable treatment for you.

Before starting to work on fixing your teeth, they will first assess its current condition. By making use of diagnostic tools similar to plaster models, clinical exams, x-rays as well as photographs, the orthodontist will be able to figure out whether or not you are eligible for the treatment.

In addition to that, if you have conditions similar to the following, then rest assure that you’ll be a perfect candidate for orthodontic treatment.

Number 1. Underbite – if the lower part of your teeth stick out of or perhaps, the front one is too far back, then you have an underbite.

Number 2. Overbite – this is basically the opposite of underbite.

Number 3. Open bite – it’s an open slot between the biting surfaces.

Number 4. Spacing – generally speaking, if you have gaps and spaces between teeth, it has to be corrected.

Number 5. Crowding – this is when you have more teeth than usual for dental ridge to accommodate.

Number 6. Crossbite – this takes place when the upper portion of your teeth doesn’t come down in front of the lower teeth.

Number 7. Misplaced midline – basically these are just misaligned lower and upper molars.

The way an orthodontist performs orthodontic treatment demands several tools and devices to retain oral muscles and help the teeth to move with your jaws. Either it is removable (aligners, removable space maintainers, jaw repositioning appliances, palatal expander etc.) or fixed (braces, special fixed appliances and fixed space maintainers), these should be done by putting pressure on your jaws or teeth. Always take into account that any orthodontists should have access to these appliances otherwise, they won’t be able to do their job correctly.
