How To Straighten Teeth In Addition To Braces?
Afternoon, want to ask, besides using braces are there other tools that can back teeth? I have 4 rather advanced front teeth, is there a tool that can help improve this? Tools that can be easily removed and reused … thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The condition that you have is one type of dental malocclusion called overbite. Overbite can be caused by genetics, it can also be caused by bad habits (for example, thumb sucking as a child). To improve the condition of overbite, your doctor will recommend the use of braces to get maximum results. In addition, the use of braces will also be recommended if the malocclusion you have is classified as moderate to severe or your teeth are also messy.
Your dentist can further ask why you don't want to use braces. If the problem is appearance, your dentist may recommend the use of lingual braces, a type of braces that are placed inside the teeth (so the wire is not visible from the outside). If you don't want to use tools that stick to your teeth, your dentist can recommend using a tooth aligner. This principle of alignment works is to wrap teeth tightly and give encouragement to the teeth so that they can shift into more neat. Although cosmetically the teeth aligner looks better, but the aligner can only be used to correct mild to moderate malocclusion. In addition, you are also expected to use your aligner throughout the day and change your aligner to the dentist every 2 weeks to get maximum results. If the problem is the cost, then the use of an aligner is likely to cost more or less the same (even more expensive) than braces.
It is better to further discuss your dental problems with your dentist. Your dentist must first examine your teeth directly to determine the best therapy for your teeth.
You need to remember that an aligner that is sold freely (without a dentist's examination) will not be able to improve the condition of a messy or advanced tooth. Dental problems of each person must be different, so we need braces or aligners that are made specifically in accordance with these dental problems.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
