Question:

Hi. My daughter is 10 years old, and her milk canine and incisor teeth have moved back. The doctor says the milk teeth should be removed first, and then, the teeth can be moved to their right position with orthodontics. What is your opinion? I will also send you the photos. And also, can I have the address of your clinic please? I appreciate your response.



Dr Answer:

Greetings.
The milk teeth are usually extracted for the orthodontic treatment, but please refer to an orthodontist first, or visit our clinic for a free of charge consultation.
The clinic’s address: The upper floor of the Gerad Clothing, Fatemi Square, Telephone: 88906560.

Greetings.
Yes, it is possible, but it should be done carefully by a dentist so that it doesn’t result in short and unpleasant teeth.

Question:

Hi. I started orthodontics two days ago. White spots would appear on my teeth whenever they are in contact with air. I want to know if this is temporary, or should I be concerned?



Dr Answer:

Don’t worry; this is temporary. It will be resolved over time with a good oral hygiene.

Question:

Hi. I showed you the photo of my teeth, and you said that the shortest way to fix my canine tooth is the Damon orthodontics. How much does it approximately cost, and how long will it take? Thanks.



Dr Answer:

Please visit the clinic for a free consultation, so I can see your teeth up close, and make a better assessment, because the cost varies depending on the jaw and teeth irregularities. The cost of treatment is paid in installments in my clinic.

Question:

Hi. I broke my upper jaw in an accident in 2003, and had an emergency jaw surgery, in which one of my front upper teeth was removed, and subsequently, my upper teeth became crooked. I want to know how is the surgery, and what should be done? Thanks.



Dr Answer:

Greetings.
You should first have fixed orthodontics done by an orthodontist, and then have jaw surgery done by a maxillofacial surgeon.

General dentists have not completed a three-year academic specialty program in orthodontics in a credible university and as a result they have not acquired the sufficient skill and knowledge to practice orthodontics. Therefore, orthodontic treatment done by non-specialists can have irreparable consequences for patients.

If oral hygiene is maintained regularly during the orthodontic treatment according to the orthodontist’s advice and given instructions, there won’t be any tooth decay. As patients may know, since the backside of the braces and rubber bands are suitable places for microbial growth, maintaining oral hygiene during orthodontics is of significant importance, so it is essential to clean the teeth with toothbrush and dental floss, as you were taught, after each meal.

Though, it is possible the teeth seem duller during fixed orthodontics. That’s because the orthodontic braces and wires on the teeth prevent the toothbrush being brushed on their surface. However, this will be resolved by polishing when treatment is completed.

Very little. The first few days of orthodontics and in appointments where new adjustments are made, the patients may experience some pain, but the pain disappears on its own. The pain from orthodontics is very insignificant compared to the pain from tooth extraction, root canal, etc. In case of any pain, the patient can also use mild painkillers the first few days.

Orthodontics can also be done in adulthood and at an older age. At an older age, orthodontics is mostly done to correct misaligned teeth and dental irregularities and to have a more beautiful smile. In fact, orthodontics is possible as long as gums are healthy and there are teeth. To be assured of the health of the gums, brush a soft toothbrush on them. If there was bleeding, the gums should be treated first and then proceed with orthodontics.

If the abnormalities of your teeth are not severe, invisible orthodontics can also be used, because invisible appliances are made from ceramic and don’t have the capability of metal appliances. By invisible orthodontics, we mean when tooth-colored braces and wires are used or when braces are applied at the back of the teeth, which is called “lingual orthodontics”.

If oral hygiene is maintained regularly during the orthodontic treatment according to the orthodontist’s advice and given instructions, there won’t be any tooth decay. As patients may know, since the backside of the braces and rubber bands are suitable places for microbial growth, maintaining oral hygiene during orthodontics is of significant importance, so it is essential to clean the teeth with toothbrush and dental floss, as you were taught, after each meal.

General dentists have not completed a three-year academic specialty program in orthodontics in a credible university and as a result they have not acquired the sufficient skill and knowledge to practice orthodontics. Therefore, orthodontic treatment done by non-specialists can have irreparable consequences for patients.

The type of abnormality, patient’s age, the kind of problem, etc. are all the issues involved in choosing an orthodontic approach. Therefore, no specific method can be used just because of the patient’s wish and insistence. Removable braces are usually used at earlier ages (12 to 14) and are mostly used to fix the jaw. Therefore, because the jaw won’t grow anymore after this age,, removable braces won’t have any significant effect. At an older age, fixed braces are used and surgery should be considered to fix the jaws.

One of the advertisements lately seen in social media and other places is straightening the teeth without orthodontics, referred to as one-day orthodontics, orthodontics with laser, fast orthodontics, etc. In these methods, in fact, there is no movement of the teeth and just the extruded and crooked parts are pared down along with the enamel. The recessed parts are filled with laminate and composite. As patients may already know, although these methods are cheaper and faster than orthodontics, they won’t have the durability and permanent effectiveness of orthodontics. In these methods, the teeth will decay in the pared areas and after a while the composites will change color and need further repair. Therefore, it is advised to be patient and with the increased awareness and understanding of the importance of healthy teeth, don’t make a mistake in choosing the wrong options with irreparable consequences
