Best Orthodontic Treatment in Bellandur | Bangalore | Nelivigi Dental Clinic. Orthodontic treatment is done to align the teeth and the jaws in correct occlusion. Orthodontic treatment is most commonly done during the teens, however adult orthodontics constitutes a significant proportion of our orthodontic practice.
Orthodontic treatment is done to align the teeth and the jaws in correct occlusion. They eliminate the problem of
  • Crowding/spacing
  • Crooked teeth
  • Deficient/excessive Lower jaw
  • Deficient/excessive Upper jaw
  • Intercuspation of teeth etc.,

7 yrs of age is the right time to meet your orthodontist to know if your child has any jaw problem which needs an early intervention (where functional appliance needs to be given). If the only malalignment of teeth is present, 13-14 years of age (when the full complement of permanent teeth would be seen) is the right time for orthodontic treatment.

There are various types of orthodontic treatment:
  • Preventive Orthodontics (treatments are done at an early age which prevents a malocclusion from developing)
  • Interceptive Orthodontics (intervening at the time when malocclusion is developing so that you reduce the severity of the malocclusion)
  • Corrective Orthodontics (correct the malocclusion that is present)
  • Surgical Orthodontics (intervene with a surgical approach to correct the problems with the teeth and jaws that cannot be done with orthodontics alone)
There are various appliances that can be used to achieve Orthodontic correction:
  • Functional appliances (in children requiring bone repositioning)
  • Metal Braces
  • Ceramic Braces
  • Self-ligating braces
  • Lingual Braces
  • Clear aligners
Your orthodontist would be the right person to tell you which appliance to choose.
    • Functional appliance: is required in young patients who have the problem with the jaws. If an individual is in the
      growing age (under 11-12 years for girls and under 12-13 years for boys) the jaw discrepancy can be corrected with
      these appliances. Once the patient is an adult when skeletal growth is complete, they need to get a surgery done to
      achieve the same correction.
    • Surgical Orthodontics: Adult patients having jaw discrepancies and problems like Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate need
      to undergo surgery along with Orthodontic treatment for the correction of the problem.
