What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that is responsible for correcting malocclusion and misaligned teeth. 

Although this specialty has a lot to do with the aesthetics of the smile, its most important role is to correct deformations and bad positioning of the jaw bones and teeth to achieve a functional bite, good oral health, and even improve facial features.

There is a wide variety of orthodontic treatments to treat each of the pathologies, and they can be placed in children and adults. With the help of an orthodontist, you can get amazing results no matter how severe it is.

How to know if you need orthodontics?-

Orthodontics includes restorative dentistry procedures to correct very noticeable problems and cosmetic treatments whose main intention is to achieve a perfect smile.

To find out if you need orthodontics, you should consult with a dentist to find out what is the problem to be solved and what treatment will be indicated for you. These are the pathologies that can be treated:

  • Crowded teeth: The teeth are grouped on top of each other. This happens when there is not enough space in the mouth because the teeth are too large and the molars push them against each other.

  • Spacing: In this case, contrary to the previous one, the teeth are very small or there is too much space in the mouth, which creates spaces between each tooth.

  • Open bite: When the upper and lower front teeth don’t touch, which causes chewing and speaking problems in patients. In many cases, this occurs due to prolonged use of bottles or pacifiers in childhood, although it can also be inherited.

  • Crossbite: It happens when the upper teeth do not fall on the lower ones, but these are slightly displaced to one of the sides. This causes the dental pieces to wear easily, problems when chewing, and poor appearance.

  • Overjet: When the upper jaw protrudes more than it should form the lower jaw; In some more severe cases, the lower teeth can touch the palate when biting normally, causing damage to the gums and roof of the mouth, gum disease, and tooth loss.

  • Underbite: In this case, the lower jaw is the one that protrudes from the upper one, causing dental wear and poor appearance.


To determine the type of occlusion problem that you may have, your orthodontist in Los Algodones will perform a dental examination, which includes a review to see if you have any gum disease, cavities or serious wear of teeth, x-rays of your mouth, and, in some cases, impressions of your bite.

With this, the dentist will be able to determine if you need orthodontic treatment and what would be the ideal procedure to offer you personalized dental care.

Types of orthodontic treatments

In recent years there have been many technological advances in this dentistry field, and now you can opt for less invasive and more aesthetic procedures to align your teeth. At Los Algodones Dental Solutions we have state-of-the-art technology, first-class materials, and the best professionals to offer our patients quality treatments. 

These are the most popular types of orthodontics:

orthodontics braces | Los Algodones Dentists

Metal braces

It is the most popular type of orthodontic, although not the most aesthetic. These braces offer a lot of resistance and can be used for restorative and cosmetic treatments. The teeth alignment procedure takes about 3 years and it can provide incredible results. 

This treatment uses metal brackets that are fixed to the teeth and are joined together by an arch and rubber bands. By applying pressure, the dentist can bring the teeth into their ideal places. Special rubber bands are used to correct bite problems; with time they will bring the jaw to where it needs to be.

Ceramic and zirconia braces

They work the same as metal braces, but their big advantage is that the brackets are made of transparent porcelain, so they offer better aesthetics during the procedure. They are just as resistant and can be used as a cosmetic treatment or to correct improper occlusion. Unlike traditional braces, the price of these can be a bit higher. Patients who choose this type of treatment must pay special attention to oral hygiene to keep the clear color of the braces.

On the other hand, the zirconium braces are even more imperceptible and there is no risk of yellowing over time. This material is a bit more expensive, but it is an ideal option for those looking for a discreet option.

Damon braces

Damon braces are a new system that will allow you to get excellent results in less time than the traditional braces. The main characteristic of this system is that it doesn’t use rubber bands to fix the wire to the brackets; in this case, each bracket has a lock that keeps the wire in the desired position. This creates less friction and pressure, allowing the teeth to have more range of motion and results can be obtained faster.

The cost of these braces is not that different from the traditional ones, they have two types, metal, and transparent ceramic, and they offer a lot of advantages, such as fewer visits to the dentist to adjust the arch.

Invisalign

Invisalign is the best treatment for those who don’t want to compromise the aesthetics of their smile during the procedure. This type of orthodontics uses removable plastic aligners custom-made for each patient and can achieve as good results as any of the methods we have mentioned before. The aligners are completely transparent, removable and by not using friction, the procedure will be less painful and faster.

The aligners must be changed every 2 weeks, but the patient will only need to have a checkup with the dentist every 2 months. For this reason, Invisalign is highly recommended for patients who visit our clinic in Baja California, Mexico from the USA or Canada. Invisalign is used in adults, in most cases, because it takes a great commitment to keep the aligners in place for at least 22 hours a day to get the desired results.

Lingual braces

It is a completely imperceptible method, and therefore the most aesthetic of all. This treatment works the same as metal braces, but the brackets and wire are placed on the lingual face (the back side) of the teeth.

This method is mostly used for cosmetic dentistry treatments in adults.

Retainers

Retainers are removable dental appliances that must be worn after each type of orthodontic so you can ensure that the teeth will stay in their new place.

In some cases, retainers can function as the only treatment, since, depending on the type of appliance, they can correct the occlusion and align the teeth.

Benefits of orthodontics

  • By improving the appearance of the smile, the self-esteem of patients is increased.

     

  • Braces and aligners can restore the function of the teeth, eliminate chewing problems and even improve speech and pronunciation.

     

  • When the teeth are aligned correctly the risk of cavities is reduced since fewer bacteria, plaque, and tartar accumulate.

     

  • Orthodontic reduces the risk of gum disease, damage to the palate, problems in the muscles of the face, damage to the jaw joint, and much more. Also, facial features can be improved by correcting occlusion problems.

     

  • The patient will enjoy good dental health, will look better, and feel better.


Orthodontic treatments can be combined with other dentistry procedures to restore the smile, such as a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.

It is important to mention that in some serious cases of deformation of the jaw and malocclusion, orthodontics alone will not be enough and it will be necessary to perform maxillofacial surgery.
