See 10 Questions For Normal Orthodontics
- Why do I extract teeth asymmetrically?
For patients with crowded dentition, most doctors will propose a treatment plan for the extraction of the first small molar symmetrically. However, if you encounter the original missing tooth problem or the condition of severe asymmetry in the midline, you may adopt an asymmetric single Only by pulling the teeth can the midline be pulled back to the correct position.
In addition, under the treatment plan for tooth extraction, some patients worry that some teeth are dentures, tooth decay or nerve-extracted teeth, hoping to replace the healthy small molars by removing the damaged teeth to create space. However, due to the different size of each tooth and the significant functionality and irreplaceability of certain incisors and molars, not all teeth can be removed, and it is up to the physician to make a correct judgment.
- Can I use correction to lock up the missing teeth?
Patients who already have a missing tooth will always want to use the correction method to close the missing tooth space to save the cost of dental implants or bridges after correction. When the missing tooth space is small, it is indeed possible to close the missing tooth space with correction, but if the missing tooth is located in the molar area, if the rear teeth are moved forward by correction, it may be caused by excessive force and the root of the tooth needs to be removed. Even if it closes reluctantly, it is likely that only the crown above the gums is dumped, and the root of the original tooth has not moved. Instead, the tooth gap under the crown is too large and it is easy to catch food debris, so this method is not recommended.
- Can I only do unilateral correction?
In a few cases, it is possible to make unilateral corrections only if the doctor judges it feasible. However, because of the corresponding relationship between the upper and lower occlusal teeth, when correcting one side, the opposite side should also be adjusted accordingly, in order to achieve the final symmetry and beauty, so most of them will still focus on full mouth correction.
- I have periodontal disease, can I still do orthodontics?
If it is mild periodontal disease, the clinical symptoms may only be bleeding gums, swollen gums, or more plaque during brushing. As long as the doctor before correction corrects the periodontal cleaning, and cooperates with the doctor to perform oral cavity maintenance, perform dental correction no problem.
However, if the patient has moderate to severe periodontal disease, the periodontal pocket or gum bone has been eroded by bacteria, or the tooth itself has been loosened, I am afraid that it cannot withstand the pulling force of the correction device, and rash correction may cause the tooth to fall out, so it is not recommended. Make corrections.
- Will the teeth be moved during orthodontics, will the teeth become unhealthy in the future?
In the orthodontic treatment, the orthodontic device exerts force on the teeth to promote the reconstruction of the tissues around the teeth, so that the teeth are loosened and slowly moved to the ideal position. After the teeth are corrected to the correct position and stop moving, the body will stabilize the small circle of teeth through its own repair ability, so there will be no problem of permanent teeth loosening. If the oral hygiene is properly maintained, it will not affect the health of the teeth. Make an impact.
