You may start your journey with an annual exam. The general dentist may refer you to an orthodontist to deal with irregularities in your teeth. Sometimes, this means getting braces or other tooth alignment aids. Other treatments include follow up visits to monitor the development of your teeth. Most orthodontic patients are children, teens, or young adults.
When you visit the orthodontist, they will do their best to improve the condition of your teeth. This could mean adjusting the teeth and jaws when they do not align appropriately. However, there are many options available under orthodontic care. It’s important to follow the instructions provided carefully to get the best outcome at the end of your treatment.
First, the orthodontist will schedule a visual exam and evaluate your smile. Afterward, they will update your chart with their diagnostic analysis. Further treatment could include bite impressions, imaging of the jaw joints, and panoramic x-rays. The orthodontist will review the imaging and determine the best route to realigning your teeth. Finally, you will work with your dentist to determine the best course of action to suit your lifestyle and goals.
Diagnostic records produced by your orthodontist help our entire team deliver effective treatment. For example, you may need an oral surgeon’s help to correct a portion of your alignment issues. If you have an overcrowded mouth, the orthodontist or general dentist must extract one or more teeth to make room for realignment procedures. Both fixed and temporary appliances are effective in improving jaw arch and alignment issues.

- Dental malocclusion
