Dhruthi health CAre
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws, misaligned bite patterns. It can also focus on modifying facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics. At the Dhruthi Dental Clinic, orthodontic treatment involves the use of dental braces and other appliances to slowly move the teeth and jaws around. If the malocclusion is very severe, jaw surgery may be needed. Treatment is usually started before a person reaches adulthood since bones can more easily be moved around in children. people who have crowded or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment will straighten the teeth or move them into a better position. This can improve their appearance and the way the teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean. Some people have upper front teeth that stick out and look unsightly. These ‘prominent’ teeth are more likely to be damaged, but orthodontic treatment can move them back into line. In some cases the upper and lower jaws meet in an improper way which can cause teeth to look unsightly and lead to an incorrect bite. Orthodontic treatment will correct both of these problems. When the teeth don’t meet correctly, this can put a strain on the muscles of the jaw, causing jaw and joint problems and sometimes headaches. Orthodontic treatment can help you to bite more evenly and reduce the strain.

Our success stories
How long will treatment take?
The time required for braces varies from person to person, depending on the severity of the problem, the amount of room available between the teeth, the distance the teeth must travel, the health of the teeth, gums, and supporting bone, and how closely the patient follows instructions. On average, however, once the braces are put on, they usually remain in place for one to a maximum of three years. After braces are removed, most patients will need to wear a retainer all the time for the first six months
How many visits should I take?
Orthodontic braces usually need adjusting every 4 to 6 weeks. Our orthodontist will tell you how often your brace will need adjusting.
How do I care for my brace and teeth?
It is important to keep having your teeth checked by your orthodontist, you also need to take extra care of your teeth and mouth:
Clean your teeth carefully every day, including between your teeth where you can. Braces are delicate and you need to make sure you clean them carefully so that they do not break. Our dental team will be able to show you the special techniques to use depending on the appliance you are wearing.
Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks. Avoid snacks and drinks containing sugars, and fizzy drinks. Also, sticky and hard foods may damage your brace.
Make it mandatory to brush your teeth at night in addition to morning brush. Use mouthwash if you need to. Your dental team may recommend a stronger fluoride toothpaste, or perhaps a fluoride gel or mouth rinse, for you to use.
Care should be taken especially while patients play sports to avoid any trauma as the brackets might invade the soft tissues in cases such as a football hitting the face.
What happens when the teeth are in the right position?
When treatment is finished the teeth need to be held in position for a time. This is called the ‘retention’ period, and the appliances that hold the teeth in place are called retainers. The retainers hold newly straightened teeth in position while the surrounding gum and bone settle. The retainers can be removable or fixed, depending on the original problem.
