Orthodontists are the dentists who focus on the practice of orthodontics. An orthodontist is typically required to complete an additional two to three years of post-dental school education before becoming a certified practitioner of orthodontics.
There are many Causes of crooked teeth and bad bites(malocclusions). Problems can arise from early loss of teeth, abnormal growth patterns, injuries, and hereditary factors, Habits such as finger and thumb-sucking, mouth-breathing and tongue-thrusting are also recognized as contributing to many orthodontic problems
Treatment of adults for orthodontic problems is markedly increasing. Although adults can definitely benefit from treatment, there are important differences when compared to adolescents. Adults are not growing, they have often had teeth extracted, and previous gum disease can complicate the treatment. Sometimes, jaw relationships may be severe enough to warrant combining orthodontics with surgical procedure.
There are no hard and fast rules for the commencement of treatment because everyone is an individual. However, most orthodontists would prefer to see a patient for the first time at eight or nine years of age to consider the possibilities of intercepting any problems, Commonly, children are treated once the permanent(adult) teeth have erupted or are due to erupt, if the problem is essentially overcrowding of the teeth. There are however advantages to treating problems related to habits of facial bone imbalances at an earlier time.
