Malocclusion Treatments

A malocclusion refers to crooked or misaligned teeth. It is also a flaw in the relationship between the bottom and top dental arches. Some examples of malocclusions include crossbite, overbite, underbite, open bite, reverse bite, asymmetrical teeth, and impacted teeth. Three orthodontic techniques doctors use to treat malocclusions include:

Fixed Appliances

Fixed appliances are used in cases of malocclusion where precision is key. Appliances that are regularly used are braces, fixed space maintainers, or specially made fixed appliances. Although patients usually can eat normally with these appliances, Northeastern Braces advises patients to avoid some foods and drinks that may damage their appliance such as candy, gum, and soda.

Removable Appliances

Northeastern Braces use, in some treatments, removable appliances like retainers, lip or cheek bumpers, splints, clear aligners, such as Invisalign, palatal expanders, and headgear. Removable appliances can be taken out of the patient’s mouth at any time, unlike fixed appliances. However, they should only be taken out when cleaning, eating, flossing, or if the doctor recommends that they be removed for activities like sports or playing an instrument.

Orthognathic Surgery

Also referred to as “corrective jaw surgery,” orthognathic surgery is used to correct conditions of the face and jaw; problems that cannot be easily treated with braces. These conditions may be related to other issues like sleep apnea, malocclusions, jaw or teeth-growth problems, or issues in the structure or function of the jaw. This surgical process involves realigning the bones of the jaw and then keeping them held in place with plates or screws.

The team at Northeastern Braces are here to help you get the brightest, straightest, and healthiest teeth and mouth as part of your orthodontic treatment in Marlboro, NY.
