Regardless of age, orthodontic treatment can be beneficial. It embellishes the smile, gives confidence and promotes good oral and overall health. Well-aligned teeth are easier to clean and therefore less prone to cavities and wounds.

 

WHAT IS A TREATMENT IN ORTHODONTICS

The dentist or orthodontist diagnoses dental irregularities, then treats them or prevents them with a fixed and / or removable dental appliance. A treatment can last a few weeks, months or sometimes years.

 

There are several types of orthodontic treatments:

  • braces
  • removable devices (such as Invisalign)
  • retention and retainers

 

Orthodontic appliances are used primarily for straightening teeth. However, they can also help correct an occlusion abnormality or to correct the alignment between the teeth and the lips.

Care with an orthodontic appliance

Having a dental appliance cannot correct your dentition if you do not take care of it. Therefore, having good oral hygiene is important, especially with an orthodontic appliance.

Also, keep in mind that you can wear your device for months or even years; one more reason to take care of it.

 

Here’s how to take care of your oral hygiene when using a dental appliance:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  • Use dental floss once a day, ideally at the end of the day.
  • Avoid sweet snacks between meals.
  • Consume as little hard food as possible (nuts, apples, caramel, chewing gum, etc.).
  • Consult your dentist regularly.

We invite you to consult the Canadian Dental Association’s article on orthodontics.
