Orthodontics is a field within dentistry that relates to the straightening of teeth, correcting of bites and the realignment of a smile. Using modern systems such as discreet braces or clear plastic aligners, Dentiq has helped many patients to have straighter teeth with great results. Thanks to advances in the discipline, treatment time is greatly reduced while using lower forces gently guide the teeth into a more aesthetic position.
Some of the orthodontic systems use special treatment planning software to map out how the teeth will move with the braces or aligners, giving the patient an idea of how their smile will look at the end of treatment. Depending on the extent of the alignment required and the orthodontic system, treatment can take from several months to over a year. Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won’t move after treatment is completed.
The main benefit of having orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth.
