Key Terms When Looking for an Orthodontist

If you or a family member is in the need for an orthodontic work, there are several things you should know before getting started. If you have a regular dentist, they may be able to refer you to an orthodontist. Surgery is not always necessary. The resolution may vary depending on whether the problem is crooked teeth or a chipped tooth. If the teeth or gums ache, then emergency surgery may be necessary. Your dentist will have a recommendation. If the problem is cosmetic, there is no immediate rush to resolve the issue. The following are key terms when you are looking to have orthodontic work done.

  • Appliance - A term that refers to any device that is used to move the teeth or hold the teeth in place. Removable items such as dentures are also considered orthodontic appliances.
  • Braces - An orthodontic appliance that is used to straighten and align teeth. Braces are made up of archwires, brackets, bands and ligatures.
  • Archwire - An orthodontic appliance that attaches to brackets to move the teeth. An archwire is a metal wire.
  • Bracket - A metal, ceramic or plastic attachment. The brackets are bonded to each tooth and has a slot for the archwire.
  • Band - A ring that is used to strengthen the tooth and keep it in place.
  • Ligature - An elastic or twisted wire that is used to hold the archwires and brackets together.
  • Dentures - A device used to replace missing teeth. These are usually removable and are commonly referred to as false teeth.

    Orthodontists are dentists who specialize in the alignment of teeth and jaws. They often use braces, retainers, rubber bands, and wires to rotate and move teeth so that they are straight. Some think of this as a cosmetic procedure, but maintaining a straight bite with wires and rubber bands can also improve overall oral health. Today's orthodontists have many more products for teens and adults than those of the past. For instance, it is common for modern orthodontic dentists to use clear braces. Many patients prefer the aesthetics of these invisible braces because they do not want other people to know that they wear them. They can, therefore, use the devices for improved dental cosmetics in the future without sacrificing their looks in the present. Some dentist offices focus on specific types of patients. They might, for instance, concentrate on providing services to kids. Many of them, however, work with children, teens, and adults. If you are looking for an orthodontist to straighten your teeth or jaw, you should contact them to make sure they can address your specific needs. You can learn more about the crowns, bridges, and tooth implants that dentists offer by reading about the orthodontic profession. There are several websites devoted to dental care techniques that address crowded or crooked teeth. This is a good place to start learning about the different types of hygienic and cosmetic services that orthodontic dentists offer. You can learn about the specific offices that serve your area by using an internet search that includes keywords, such as the name of your town and “orthodontist.” Many sites offer information about pediatric services and insurance plans to lower costs.
