How to resolve jaw joint problems by using orthodontics

Typical symptoms of joint-related problems you can easily notice yourself:

  • Restless sleep and waking up tired (sure any of these can occur for many other reasons but they are often the signs of jaw joint syndromes) .
  • Regularly painful joints (including other joints).
  • Clacking sounds from the jaw joints while speaking or eating.
  • Occasionally cracking jaws.
  • Creaking feel in the jaws.

If any or more of these phenomena occur to you then you are more likely involved in a dental disorder that has the probability of 87,9% in Hungary: namely the malfunctioning jaw joints.

The evolution of this problem may be led by several factors upon we have little or no influence at all:

  • grinding teeth daytime or at night
  • stressed lifestyle and bruxism as its negative impact
  • uneven loading of the teeth while chewing

As a young adult when should I turn to an orthodontic specialist?

The answer to this question is very simple: when you are in need for this. There is of course a more technical definition because the goal for this group of age is to support the healthy and smooth development of permanent teeth and preserve the soundness of these teeth.

The solution of deep overbite with orthodontic treatments

We are referring to deep overbite when the vertical overlap of the teeth occurs. The lower front teeth bite too far up behind the upper front teeth into palate. The distance between the upper and lower arch is more than 1-1,5 mm. This phenomenon can easily be examined by you when looking in the mirror. There are different volumes of deep bite, but the bigger the distance the more serious the problem. So we need to look for solutions and the reasons are more anatomical than aesthetic.

As an adult when should I turn to an orthodontist?

The world has changed a lot in the last decade regarding orthodontic treatments in adult age. Firstly because of the new techniques that came into light and finally took the special anatomic attributes of the adult into consideration thus applying the appropriate technique for the treatments. Secondly the perception of our environment about adults wearing braces has also changed significantly. Their braces are no longer a sign of immaturity but more of a health-conscious person of high personal standards and demanding environment.

The orthodontic therapy during the exchange for permanent teeth in childhood

Children turn 5-6 years old when it is time for the replacement of the baby teeth. The result of this natural process is the arrival of permanent molars. The front teeth got their replacement shortly after: first come the lower incisors, then the uppers arrive, later the lateral incisors got the position.

In what kind of situations should we take our kids to an orthodontic specialist?

Orthodontic treatment can improve the beauty of our smile and the health of our teeth at any age. However there is an ideal time to get started. This is when one can achieve the best results over the shortest period of time at the lowest costs.
