Mention orthodontics to most people and, if the word was to inspire any kind of reaction at all, it might be to conjure up an image of a child wearing braces. But orthodontics expertly carried out, is about a great deal more than this. Here at our dental clinic in Tijuana, we use modern realignment techniques which can literally transform the lives of both adult and child patients. Our Tijuana dentist employ all the latest treatments to give our patients the smile that they are waiting for.
Braces in Tijuana can make a huge difference to the confidence and well-being of patients of all ages. As well as delivering exceptional cosmetic dentistry results, our practice is dedicated to solving long-standing, often painful conditions caused by misaligned teeth. These might include jaw problems, discomfort when eating and even headaches, neck ache and shoulder tension.
Traditional fixed braces remain the type of treatment most commonly fitted by orthodontists in the EEUU. They reliably deliver a high degree of control over the final positioning of the teeth. The treatment with conventional braces begins with careful measurement here at our boutique orthodontic practice in Tijuana, Mexico. At a return appointment, your braces will be bonded to the surface of your teeth. The braces remain in place throughout the treatment and guide the movement of the teeth, gently but firmly, into their optimal position.
Impactions can be caused by improper positioning of the developing tooth bud. This can cause the tooth to fail to erupt into the mouth. Impactions can also be caused by early loss of primary teeth or crowding of teeth. Wisdom teeth are the most commonly impacted teeth. Canines and premolars can also be impacted.
Usually, the impacted tooth is exposed over the course of a few months and brought into the correct position of the mouth. Correction of impacted teeth may involve a minor surgical procedure performed by an oral surgeon working closely with our practice. This will allow us to then guide eruption of the impacted tooth into proper position.
Crowding is the lack of space for all the teeth to fit normally within the jaws. The teeth may be twisted or displaced. Crowding occurs when there is disharmony in the tooth to jaw size relationship or when the teeth are larger than the available space. Crowding can be caused by the improper eruption of teeth and early or late loss of primary teeth. To discuss crowding and the spacing of teeth in the Tijuana area, please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment.
Extra space can be created by the expansion of the arches or extraction of teeth. Once space is created, braces will eliminate crowding and align the teeth. Correction of crowding can help prevent dental decay and periodontal disease by improving the ability to remove plaque from the teeth.
Crossbite can occur in the front and/or the sides of the mouth: One or more upper teeth bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can occur with a single tooth or multiple teeth. Early correction of crossbite is recommended.
If there is a single tooth crossbite, the tooth can be moved with braces into the correct position. In some cases, a retainer can be utilized. With multiple teeth in crossbite, the arch needs to be expanded with braces or other intra-oral appliances.
