What Does An Orthodontist Do & How Can One Help Me?

An orthodontist’s main talent is helping to correct a situation where the teeth and jaw have become misaligned. This may be causing problemswith respect to chewing, issues with oral hygiene or speech defects and correcting these problems can make a big difference to quality of life. Experienced orthodontics staff are able fix a broad range of conditions such as these.

Below is a list of some of the most common problems:

Anteroposterior deviations – this term includes a number of problems that orthodontists regularly work with, for example an underbite – where the lower teeth have become positioned further forward than the upper teeth – or an overbite – where the upper teeth are positioned further forward than the lower teeth. The main issue with underbites and overbites is that the person can have difficulty chewing so correcting this can make eating much easier.

Overcrowding – by far one of the problems that orthodontists have to treat the most often is overcrowding. This is exactly what it sounds like i.e. there simply isn’t enough room in the mouth for all the teeth. This may be caused by a lack of jawbone space, which means that when adult teeth begin to come through they cannot do so in perfect alignment with those teeth that are already there. This results in misaligned new teeth and an overcrowded looking mouth. This can be treated straightforwardly and unobtrusively in most cases.

Aesthetics – although the jaw and teeth are largely unseen inside the mouth, they can have a negative impact on the entire shape of the face where there is, for example, an over or under bite or malocclusions. Where this has happened an orthodontist can easily realign the jaw or restructure it and reshape teeth and lips, resulting in an aesthetically appealing, confident smile.

How Can An Orthodontist Help Me?

You may have crooked teeth or an underbite or overbite, or perhaps your teeth might be sticking out – this may cause you to feel embarrassed by your teeth and to have trouble eating. Where teeth aren’t aligned properly this may strain the jaw muscles and this can cause headaches or you may find that overcrowded teeth are difficult to clean and you’re struggling to maintain basic oral hygiene standards. An orthodontist can help with all these problems – we offer specialist orthodontics services in Bristol, London, Chertsey & Salisbury.
