|Q.1 Why is correction necessary?
Poor occlusion of the teeth affects the shape of the chin or features of
your child, and it also has an unfavorable influence on the growth and
development of the entire body. Also, it may become a cause of decayed
teeth or periodontal disease.Mentally, a child is liable to be concerned
about his or her
It depends on the degree of poor occlusion or the time the child comes to the clinic, but there is no restriction about age. Adults are also acceptable.
Please wait until the child becomes conscious of the need for treatment and is cooperative.
Before the start of treatment, it is necessary to come to the clinic three to four times for examination, diagnosis, and brushing guidance. After the beginning of treatment, and while equipment is inside the mouth, the patient must come to the clinic once a month for adjustment purposes. The period for treatment varies, depending on the state of occlusion, and the time for starting treatment, but it may be one to two years, and it sometimes needs several years.
Because a tooth is moved slowly with very weak force, not much pain or discomfort is felt. When equipment is installed for the first time, however, the patient may feel the floating of teeth, a sense of incongruity, or mild pain for three to four days.
- Because plaque is liable to attach to corrective equipment, when it is
installed, more brushing than before will be necessary.
Most foods can be eaten as usual, but there are foods that require attention,
and also those that cannot be eaten.
Bad features due to abnormal alignment of upper and lower teeth or reversed occlusion will be corrected, and the look of the face will be improved.
It may become necessary for the purpose of treatment if space is too little to form correct occlusion because the chin is too small for the size of teeth, or in the case of protruding teeth or a protruding lower lip.
