What is
Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with improper positioning of teeth. Children may have an over bite, under bite, crooked teeth or a jaw displacement—which could cause eating or speech problems. Orthodontics can also be used for cosmetic purposes if the person wishes to have a better smile.

Orthodontic treatment for kids primarily helps prevent oral health issues. Children may be born with malocclusion or a bad bite, or they may obtain it over time through injury or habits, such as sucking their thumb. Whatever the problem may be, it is important to treat it right. At Appolonia Pediatric Dentistry, our orthodontists are specialized to treat most conditions successfully. Malocclusion or a “bad bite” can be capable of causing your child oral health problems in the long run. Orthodontic treatment in kids commonly uses fixed braces or removable appliances to treat misalignment of the teeth or jaws, or sometimes both.

Childrens braces & orthodontic treatment from Appolonia pediatric dental center will give your child a healthy, beautiful smile for the future. Our specialist orthodontists welcome you to three convenient locations near your home or work in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Khalifa City.

Some items to consider before seeking orthodontic treatment

The nature of the problem

Some orthodontic issues are better treated early, and others later. For instance, thumb-sucking habits and crossbites are better managed as early as 8 to avoid less desirable permanent effects on the teeth and bite.

The impact of the problem on your child’s overall wellbeing

For example, if a problem like protruding teeth is having a negative impact on a child’s self-esteem (e.g. not smiling, bullying at school, feeling self-conscious) - then this can be treated as early as 8 years old.

Your child’s dental health

Before starting any orthodontic treatment, it is essential the teeth and gums are healthy. If the orthodontist identifies an issue at your child’s examination, they refer to the dentist/ therapist to stabilise his/her oral health before starting any orthodontic treatment.

The cooperation of your child

Do you think your child will be able to complete the whole orthodontic timescale without undue stress to them, or damage to the equipment? Some children will find it harder than others to adapt to orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontics FAQs

What causes orthodontic problems?

Most orthodontic problems (malocclusions) are inherited. Examples of these genetic problems are crowding, spacing, protrusion, extra or missing teeth, and some jaw growth problems. Other malocclusions are acquired as a result of thumb- or finger sucking, dental disease, accidents, the early or late loss of baby (primary) teeth, or other causes.

Why is treatment so important?

Orthodontic treatment creates a better bite, making teeth fit better, and decreases the risk of future, and potentially costly dental problems. Crooked teeth are hard to clean and maintain. A malocclusion can cause tooth enamel to wear abnormally, difficulty in chewing and/or speaking, and excess stress on supporting bone and gum tissue. Without treatment, many problems simply become worse.

Why select an orthodontist?

Orthodontists are dental specialists who diagnose, prevent and treat dental and facial irregularities. They receive an additional two to three years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. Only those who successfully complete this formal education may call themselves “orthodontists”

When should children get a check-up with an orthodontist?

The AAO recommends that your child get a check-up with an orthodontist at the first recognition of an orthodontic problem, but no later than age 7. By then, your child has enough permanent teeth for an orthodontist to determine whether an orthodontic problem exists or is developing. Putting off a check-up with an orthodontist until a child has lost all baby teeth could be a disservice. Some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if they are found early. A check-up no later than age 7 gives your orthodontist the opportunity to recommend the appropriate treatment at the appropriate time. If early treatment is in order, the orthodontist may be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.

What is my role in treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is a partnership between the patient and the orthodontist. The orthodontist provides custom-made fixed or removable appliances that use gentle pressure over time to move teeth into their proper positions. Your job is to follow the orthodontist’s instructions, keep scheduled orthodontic appointments and maintain excellent oral hygiene so you achieve your best results. You will also need to see your primary care dentist as recommended.

How long does treatment take?

Orthodontic treatment averages less than two years, but can range from one to three years. When “active” treatment ends, retainers are prescribed for most patients to keep teeth in their new positions.

How much does treatment cost?

The cost of orthodontic treatment depends on many factors, including the severity of the problem, its complexity and length of treatment. Book now your free consultation and our orthodontist will be glad to discuss the best treatment options and fees with you before treatment begins.
