The etymology of the term orthodontics is a combination of Ortho (smooth) and Odons (tooth) in Greek. It is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the proper placement of teeth on the dental bones and the diagnosis and treatment of facial irregularities.
WHY DO ORTHODONTIC PROBLEMS OCCUR AND HOW THEY ARE TREATED?
Prolonged use of baby bottles, pacifiers, finger sucking, and nail biting can result in disorders in the developing skeletal system. Furthermore, early or late milk tooth losses can cause dental misalignment.
Decisions on the relevant treatment modality for deformities such as overbite or underbite are made by the orthodontist considering the patient’s age. Patient satisfaction is guaranteed with high rates of success if patient is an adolescent and today’s orthodontic techniques are implemented. Treatment method and steps for adult patients are implemented in cooperation with the orthodontist and surgeon.
In addition, individuals with this jaw disorder cannot close their mouths completely and experience biting, chewing and respiratory problems.
