thanks for asking your query
crooked teeth needs an orthodontic treatment,its duration depends upon the degree of mal alignment
Your tooth and gum structure has to be examined with diagnostic equipment such as X-rays, scans or CEREC technology.
Once your dental form and teeth are mapped, the full extent of misalignment or malocclusion
can be identified. Treatment plans is then made
If braces are to be fitted, your mouth will be prepared and the braces will be fabricated according to specification.
Alternatively, if Lumineers or veneers can solve a minor tooth gap or crooked tooth, then your teeth will also be prepared and possibly shaped before the Lumineers or porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth.
In some cases, the tooth structure impacts the facial form, expressions and smile. Some people's confidence is affected by their crooked teeth causing them to avoid smiling or to feel self-conscious about their teeth. Treating misaligned teeth not only helps your dental health, but also builds self-esteem for better relationships and life opportunities, and improves the beauty of your face.
braces do not hurt at all when they are applied to the teeth, so there is no reason to be anxious about the placement appointment. There will be mild soreness or discomfort after the orthodontic wire is engaged into the newly placed brackets, which may last for a few days to a week. Most patients experience some discomfort the first 4 days to a week after their braces, expanders, and/or wires are placed and after a wire adjustment and/or an activation appointment. Your lips and cheeks may need one to two weeks to get used to the braces.Each person will gradually adapt to the discomfort associated with the orthodontic tooth movement. Over the counter pain relievers (Advil/Motrin
work well) normally taken for headaches
plus rigorous regiment of salt water rinses can be used to greatly ease the discomfort.
hope you will find this helpful.
