Orthodontics Q & A

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten misaligned teeth. Not only does it improve the cosmetics of your smile, but also correctly aligned teeth prevent a number of oral health problems including excessive wear-and-tear and jaw pain. They’re also easier to clean, which helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

What issues can orthodontic treatment correct?

There are several kinds of deviant bite types that can be treated with Individual Orthodontic technology, including:

  • Crowded Teeth - When the width of your teeth is greater than the surrounding gum and bone, the teeth can become crowded and misaligned and thus lead to gum damage and breathing difficulties.
  • Widely Spaced Teeth - When the width of your teeth is less than the gum tissue and gaps open up between your teeth.
  • Underbite - When your lower jaw protrudes.
  • Overbite - When your upper jaw protrudes.
  • Cross Bite - When the upper jaw closes inside the lower jaw. This can result in teeth grinding that will whittle away valuable enamel.
  • Open Bite - A misalignment of the teeth where your upper and lower rows of teeth don’t touch normally.

What is the Individual Patient Orthodontics method?

While traditional orthodontics treats every tooth as if it is the same, Individual Patient Orthodontics custom-tailored technology fits uniquely crafted brackets to the individual shape of each tooth. By identifying the specific amount of shifting needed for each gap and applying torque appropriately, Dr. Dhayni can finish cases in 40% less time. This is made possible with IP archwire technology that isolates individual tooth movement without requiring routine trips to the office for wire replacements. This means less time at the office, less time in the chair, and less time waiting for your ideal smile.

What if I have previous periodontal conditions?

Not only can you undergo orthodontic intervention, but also it is highly recommended. IP technologies are utilized to treat patients with periodontal bone loss, joint pain, implants, and other dental needs. Using the IP system, Dr. Dhayni has simultaneously improved the periodontal health and bite alignment of many patients throughout San Diego.
