Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a dental specialty that diagnoses and treats misalignments of the teeth and jaw. It uses custom oral appliances, like metal braces or clear plastic aligners, to gradually move your teeth into the proper position.

Orthodontics makes your smile appear more balanced and symmetrical. It also improves your oral hygiene. When your teeth and jaw are properly aligned, they’re much easier to clean and care for.

What types of issues does orthodontics treat?

Ontario Chino Dental Center uses orthodontics to treat various alignment issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Misaligned or malpositioned jaw
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

You might also benefit from orthodontic treatment if you have noticeable spaces between your teeth. 

What are the types of orthodontics?

Ontario Chino Dental Center, offers several types of orthodontic treatment, including:

FastBraces®

FastBraces are similar to traditional metal braces, but they have a unique design that speeds up the treatment process. First, your provider bonds a series of triangular brackets to your teeth. Each bracket connects to a thin wire that extends to the roots. 

The brackets and wires place mild pressure on both the crowns and roots of your teeth. Over time, that pressure changes their position, improving their alignment. Most people complete FastBraces treatment within 6-12* months.

Six Month Smiles®

Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, custom-crafted oral aligners. The aligners snap snugly over your teeth and place mild pressure on them. 

Clear oral aligners are unique in that you remove them when eating or brushing and flossing. To speed up the treatment process, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

The length of time that orthodontic treatment takes depends on the system used and your adherence to the treatment plan. Most people achieve their desired results in 6-12* months, but it may take up to 18.

What type of orthodontics will benefit me?

Before recommending a particular orthodontic treatment system, your Ontario Chino Dental Center provider conducts an oral exam and asks about your goals. Afterward, they take oral X-rays to assess the alignment of your teeth and jaw.

Once your provider gathers the necessary information, they design a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
