Around a third of children need orthodontics treatment so if your teeth are crowded, protrusive, spaced too far apart, meet in an abnormal way, or do not meet at all, a correction may be recommended. Braces and aligners are the “appliances” orthodontists most commonly use to guide your teeth into their proper positions. Retainers preserve and stabilize the results of your orthodontic treatment.
In the past, orthodontic treatment was associated with children and teens, but today many adults seek orthodontic treatment to correct long-standing problems or problems that stem from maturational changes. Orthodontists can help people of any age achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
Orthodontics is important because misaligned teeth or improper positioning can lead to a higher risk of tooth decay and gingivitis. An improper bite can make teeth harder to teach or more painful to floss, leading to poor oral hygiene in those particular regions which can affect your oral health.
Orthodontics is an effective treatment method that can be used to:

Though both are considered Orthodontics, Orthopedics is usually initiated earlier in an effort to assure more favourable facial growth and jaw structure. Different influences act upon the developing lower face almost from birth and it is important to try to counteract these negative influences early and allow for more normal development. Well-timed functional therapy can have an astounding influence on your child’s development often discouraging mouth breathing, poor sleep habits and a slow physical growth pattern. Functional orthopedics is usually therapy of short duration, may involve removable appliances and often makes more extensive therapy (braces) unnecessary.
Functional Orthopedics are a great way to help younger patients avoid many of the conditions that have plagued their parents, such as poor sleep habits, T.M.J. pain, sleep apnea, small lower jaws (weak chin profile), protruded upper teeth (buck teeth) that may lead to poor self-image.
Orthodontics more classically involves the use of braces that are bonded to the teeth. These braces allow us to control the teeth accurately so that we can fine-tune their relationship to one another and create that beautiful smile. The end result must be preserved by using retainers. Dr. Rahmani with your input will best decide if fixed or removable retainers are your best option. Why wait another day to take the first step toward straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile
Invisible orthodontics is a relatively new method that is carried out by orthodontists without using brackets and wires. Its advantages are less visible. In an invisible orthodontist, movable retainer plates are made especially for each patient, so that movable plates are made by an orthodontist with the help of computer tools and special software after diagnosis and treatment plan.
For each patient, several plaques are made and the patient, according to the stages of treatment, uses these transparent plaques for a period of time, and each placement brings the tooth position closer to the ideal position and ultimately after use They are arranged from the last teeth.
the cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to braces, but that’s where the similarity ends. Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you can keep living your life and caring for your teeth throughout treatment the same way you always have
depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months.2 but you’ll start seeing results in a matter of weeks.
If you have mild crowding and thought about changing it without having to get braces; Invisalign might be the option for you. This process involves making a series of custom trays. They are made to be worn 24hrs a day to help guide your teeth into place throughout your treatment.

The biggest mistake many parents make when it comes to the oral health of their children is assuming the health of their teeth is not important, since they are going to lose their baby teeth anyway. On the contrary, it is more important for children to receive proper dental care, as they are more vulnerable to cavities, and tooth issues at an early age could affect the way the permanent teeth grow in.
Subsequently, it is highly encouraged to have children make all their scheduled dental checkups and take advantage of other opportunities offered by family and general dentistry.
