Orthodontics; It is the specialty of the dentistry branch that diagnoses and controls the compatibility relations of mismatched and crooked teeth, tries to prevent this situation and treats it. Orthodontic treatment not only has aesthetic concerns, but also aims to prevent gum diseases that may be encountered in the future, to prevent problems in the jaw joint, to provide chewing functionality and to eliminate this problem of individuals with speech disorders. With orthodontic treatment, you can have a healthier mouth, a more impressive appearance and teeth that will stay in your mouth longer.

According to the existing orthodontic problem in the mouth, treatment methods can be determined with removable appliances, functional appliances and fixed appliances. Simple orthodontic problems that are not in advanced stages can be solved with rubber removable appliances that the patient can use by putting on and taking off. 

Why should we have orthodontic treatment?

Most of the individuals primarily apply to the orthodontist with aesthetic concerns due to the crowding of the teeth. However, tooth crowding causes many problems besides aesthetics. Closure disorders, which we call malocclusion, are not only aesthetic problems, but also cause chewing and speech disorders.

Since it is more difficult to maintain oral hygiene with crooked teeth, caries occurs more easily. Likewise, plaque accumulation increases at the interfaces and gum diseases occur with gingival recession. Due to the crowding in the teeth, the lower and upper teeth cannot come to their normal closure, the forces cannot be transmitted to the jaw bones and thus the joint normally. This causes joint problems (clicking sound when opening and closing the mouth). It has been observed that trauma (such as falling, hitting a ball) affects the front teeth more and can often lead to losses in the front teeth, especially in children or individuals with a forward upper jaw or a higher tooth than they should be. Especially in individuals with more gaps between their lower and upper front teeth, the pronunciation of some sounds becomes difficult, which can lead to speech disorders.

As a result of the incompatibility between the jaws and teeth, sometimes the teeth can not find a place and remain embedded. Impacted teeth may dissolve the roots of adjacent teeth, or cysts may form around impacted teeth and lead to pathological results. A beautiful smile and beautiful teeth will not only increase one's self-confidence, but also create positive effects in their social life. The importance of a beautiful smile and aesthetics is inevitable in the individual's place in society
