Orthodontic tooth movement stalls in the presence of gum disease due to poor oral hygiene.
TONGUE RESTING AND SWALLOWiNG
It is very important to refrain from nail-biting, lip biting, thumb sucking, and tongue thrusting. These parafunctional oral habits are known to create bad bite and interfere with orthodontic treatment.
DURATION OF TREATMENT
Generally, braces have to be worn approximately for 24 months or longer. Excellent oral hygiene, avoidance of deleterious oral habits, and patient compliance make treatment seamless and shorter in duration.
RISKS AND LIMITATIONS OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
While recognizing the benefits of a beautiful healthy smile, you should also be aware that, as with all healing arts, orthodontic treatment has limitations and potential risks. Please click here to review the American Association of Orthodontists' informed consent prior to orthodontic treatment.
\When braces are taken off, a pair of removable retainers (i.e., upper and lower) are required. Retainers are worn full-time for 6 months and part-time thereafter for an indefinite time. Be aware that teeth will shift as a result of tissue changes secondary to periodontal disease, TMJ dysfunction, parafunctional oral habits, and aging.
