Conventional Braces & Orthodontic Treatments in San Diego

People have unique teeth alignment and bites. The misalignment of teeth is referred to as malocclusion. This is often characterized by under bites, overbites, cross bites, open bites and crooked teeth. Some even have flaws in the teeth themselves or in the jaws. These concerns are studied and treated through orthodontics. Dr. Reza Kasiri, DDS clinics in San Diego offer orthodontics to treat these flaws for better bite and function.

Dental braces, also known as orthodontic braces, are used to correct these flaws. Braces consist of a set of bonded brackets, archwires and elastic bands that move teeth into place to achieve a proper bite for better function. Teeth that are crowded together or that have spaces between them are slowly pushed and pulled into place. The brackets used are bonded to the front surface of each tooth to hold the wires that are then attached to the brackets with elastic bands. Slight tension on the wire is transferred to the bracket then to the elastic band, controlling the pressure exerted on each tooth.

Braces move the teeth through the use of force applied by the archwire. The archwire pushes the tooth in a specific direction. As a result, stress is produced on the periodontal ligament, modifying the periodontal blood supply that eventually leads to bone remodeling. Once the braces have been placed on your teeth, the teeth will shift with the gentle, constant pressure applied.

Nowadays, orthodontics in San Diego is faster, more comfortable and more fashionable than it used to be. Braces are provided for and worn by children, teens and even adults. There are also different types of braces that are better looking, less painful and more functional than traditional ones. Braces use different materials like stainless steel and come in different concepts like the new A-braces. The usual treatment time can be as little as 6 months up to 6 years, depending on how severe the case of malocclusion is.

After the treatment, dental retainers are also provided to prevent the teeth from moving back to their former positions. This is recommended by the orthodontist depending on the needs of the patient.
