What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment involves diagnosing, preventing, and fixing teeth and jaw malposition. Procedures include braces treatment, tooth extraction, oral surgery, and fitting other dental appliances such as headgear, palatal expanders, and retainers.

What are the Chances of Successful Orthodontic Treatment?

To ensure successful orthodontic treatment, you must commit to it by looking after your teeth and brace by following the dentist's instructions. As long as you regularly visit the dentist to adjust the braces, they can make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. This will significantly boost your chances of successful orthodontic treatment.

Unfortunately, some patients experience complications during or after their treatment. For instance, the dentist will ask you to wear retainers for some time. If you don't follow their instructions, your teeth might not look like the patient on the leaflet. Secondly, you should expect some teeth movement after retainer removal. This is normal and part of the aging process.

Moreover, most patients experience a little redness and swelling initially while wearing a brace.
