Orthodontics in Hutchinson, KS

    Service

    Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities, primarily concerning the alignment of teeth and jaws. At Sage Brush Dental Health, orthodontic treatment aims to improve the function and aesthetics of the teeth, resulting in a healthy, balanced, and attractive smile. Orthodontic treatment primarily concerns correcting malocclusions, which are improper bites caused by misaligned teeth or jaws. Common malocclusions include overcrowding, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. These issues can impact oral function, chewing efficiency, speech, and dental health.

    Clear Aligners

    Clear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces. They are a series of custom-made, transparent trays that gradually move the teeth into alignment. Aligners are removable, allowing for easier oral hygiene and the flexibility to eat and drink without restrictions. They are nearly invisible when worn, making them popular for adults and teenagers seeking a more discreet treatment option.

    Clear Aligners

    Common Uses of Clear Aligners 

    Teeth Straightening 

    The primary use of clear aligners is to straighten misaligned or crooked teeth. They can effectively move teeth into proper positions, resulting in a more aligned and aesthetically pleasing smile. 

    Correcting Crowded Teeth 

    Clear aligners can help create space between crowded teeth, allowing them to align properly and reducing the risk of dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. 

    Correcting Overbites and Underbites 

    Clear aligners can address malocclusions, such as overbites (upper front teeth overlapping the lower teeth) and underbites (lower teeth protruding in front of the upper teeth). By gradually shifting the teeth and aligning the jaws, clear aligners can help improve the bite.

    Addressing Crossbites 

    Crossbites occur when the upper and lower teeth do not align correctly when biting down. Clear aligners can correct crossbites and improve the overall bite alignment. 

    Improving Open Bites 

    Open bites occur when the upper and lower teeth do not meet properly when biting down, leaving a gap between them. Clear aligners can be utilized to correct open bites and achieve better occlusion. 

    Advantages of Clear Aligners 

    Aesthetics 

    Clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them popular for those who desire a more discreet orthodontic treatment. They are made of transparent plastic that allows the natural color of the teeth to show through, reducing the noticeable appearance of braces.

    Removability 

    Clear aligners are removable, so they can be taken out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This allows for greater flexibility and convenience in daily oral hygiene routines and eliminates food restrictions associated with traditional braces. It also makes it easier to maintain good oral health throughout the treatment process. 

    Comfort 

    Clear aligners are generally more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. They are custom-made to fit the individual's teeth, and the smooth plastic material reduces the risk of irritation and discomfort often caused by brackets and wires. 

    No Dietary Restrictions 

    Unlike traditional braces, which can have dietary limitations due to the risk of food getting stuck in brackets and wires, clear aligners can be removed during meals. This means no specific food restrictions exist, and individuals can enjoy various foods without concerns about damaging their orthodontic appliances. 

    Advantages of Orthodontic Treatment 

    Improved Dental Health 

    Orthodontic treatment aligns the teeth properly, making them easier to clean and maintain. Straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Properly aligned teeth also help distribute the forces of biting and chewing more evenly, reducing the risk of tooth damage or wear. 

    Better Oral Function 

    Orthodontic treatment provided by the Dentist in Hutchinson, KS, aligns the teeth and jaws, improving the overall functionality of the bite. This can result in better chewing efficiency, improved speech clarity, and reduced strain on the jaw joints. Proper alignment of the teeth and jaws also helps prevent excessive wear on tooth surfaces and reduces the risk of jaw-related discomfort or disorders. 

    Corrected Bite Alignment 

    Orthodontic treatment addresses bite irregularities, such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. Correcting these bite issues improves the overall function and balance of the bite, preventing excessive strain on the jaw joints and reducing the likelihood of headaches, jaw pain, and temporomandibular joint disorders.
