Although not exactly a complication, relapse or movement of the teeth to their previous position is a common consequence after removing orthodontic appliances. If patients don't wear their retainers regularly, teeth can easily relapse, especially immediately after they are removed. It may appear that the teeth that were straight have now been moved to a crooked position. This is because the crowding extends across the entire jaw or a section of several teeth.
The initial move will mean that overcrowding may worsen in a particular area. You may suddenly have an overbite or an underbite where there wasn't before. The upper jaw and lower jaw will move in sync with the treatment plan and it's not something to worry about. This is because the first stage allows the jaws to align and move in relation to the treatment.
At that point, your teeth will be straight, but you should wait until the expert has accepted that the teeth can no longer be positioned. You will ask after the day when your braces will be removed. But be patient, your orthopedic doctor knows best. Root resorption during treatment is normal.
This sounds scary, but the resorption is so small that it's not a problem. The treatment plan will have taken that into account. If you have treatment that lasts 3 years or more, your orthodontist will need to consider that. Rarely, the tooth may feel long-term effects, but these are rare and the orthodontist will know that they should be aware of the possibility of them occurring.
Your teeth will move and your gums will absorb the movement. However, the teeth will not be damaged or weakened. In order to keep your teeth strong, in any case, it is necessary to carry out good oral hygiene. Especially around teeth that have brackets and devices attached to them.
Poor hygiene will weaken enamel and leave teeth subject to gum disease. This is due to the sugars and harmful substances left behind by food particles. Oral health and the absence of gum disease are the key to strong teeth, not orthodontics. At Tisseront Orthodontics we have all the knowledge about the use of new orthodontic appliances.
You'll notice frequent improvements and worsening during treatment. It's natural for teeth to want to go back to where they were. Even if you wore braces for three years, your teeth have a long memory. Tooth movement may occur soon after wearing braces, or it may take many years to occur.
However, it is important to remember that orthodontic treatment takes place in stages. Just as it took a while for the teeth to move to the wrong position, it will also take time to move them to the correct positions. Their teeth have been stabilized in the wrong position and they feel comfortable there. It will take time, patience, and a proper technique to move them without damaging the teeth, roots and gums.
Teeth can return to their place if you wear the retainer continuously for 24 hours and take them out only to eat, drink and brush your teeth. Be sure to contact an orthodontist to get a better idea of how long it will take for them to have and maintain straight teeth after braces. McDonald has decades of experience in straightening teeth and has been a certified Invisalign provider for years since the company began in the early 2000s. When you visit your general dentist or an orthodontist, ask yourself these questions to determine if they have enough experience to provide you with the straight teeth you want, as well as a balanced bite for better oral health and comfortable function.
What most people don't realize is that straightening your teeth has always been the easiest part of orthodontic treatment. Although your teeth may be crooked or spaced apart at the start of treatment, they have generally been moved to a position where they are stable and functional. In addition, most people don't realize that moving their teeth to the wrong place can lead to tooth loss, as well as major gum recession and disease problems. Be sure to visit your dentist every six months to have your teeth and retainers checked professionally.
People who use braces to correct a bad bite or a crooked smile may notice that their teeth are not aligned, and while most people suffer from this before orthodontic treatment begins, some have it even after treatment. The first stage is when orthodontic treatment resolves the crowding or closes the spaces between the teeth. Therefore, if the teeth have moved significantly and the retainers do not fit properly, patients should schedule an appointment with their orthodontist. When patients don't wear their retainers after removing their orthodontic appliances, they may experience an orthodontic relapse and see their teeth return to the wrong position.
Even if these treatments don't straighten your teeth, they can complement your dental health situation and could be part of the solution you need. You should call your orthodontist for an appointment if you notice that your retainers don't fit well or if you can see a visible change in your teeth. The only way to ensure that your teeth don't move is to keep them in place with retainers, fixed or removable, and don't forget to focus on keeping your gums and body healthy. Your orthodontist can remove a tooth if this obstructs the movement of other teeth, making the treatment plan difficult.
