Braces are used to align and straighten teeth while improving bite alignment, which are among many treatments offered by orthodontists for patients of all ages. Braces may be combined with other orthodontic appliances to correct malocclusions such as overbites, underbites, cross bites or crookedness of teeth.
Fixed braces are the most widely-used type, consisting of metal brackets with wires attached. These wires exert constant pressure against teeth in order to facilitate alignment. The amount of pressure exerted depends on both severity of problem and age of patient; generally speaking, younger individuals require greater pressure in order to move their teeth than their elders.
Clear aligners offer another effective treatment option for crookedness in teeth. Resembling mouthguards, these clear trays apply mild, steady pressure on each of your teeth until they shift into their proper positions. You can easily take out the aligners for eating and brushing without interference with daily life; plus they’re virtually undetectable – an appealing feature of adult dental healthcare!

Mouth guards are intended to safeguard a person’s teeth and mouth during specific activities, typically sports. Available in various forms and with specific functions in mind, each serves its own specific function and fits differently within the mouth. Athletes often utilize mouth guards for injury protection against contact with other players or equipment as well as to reduce transmitted forces caused by impacts.
There are three main categories of mouthguards: stock, boil and bite and custom-made. Stock mouthguards come preformed in various sizes and may not always provide optimal comfort and fit in terms of size or fit. Boil and bite mouthguards use thermo-plastic material heated by heat to form a custom fit to each user’s mouth – these options tend to cost more than stock and bite options but may prove more effective overall. Finally, custom made options provide customized solutions which may fit more snugly.
Custom mouthguards made by a dentist tend to be the most comfortable and effective. Constructed using an impression of the user’s teeth, these guards may be made for either upper jaw (maxillary splints) or both jaws, often being one-of-a-kind designs.
Grinding teeth (bruxism) is a common problem among children, leading to damage and TMD (temporomandibular disorders). Orthodontists frequently recommend mouthguards as a solution, particularly for kids participating in sports that increase injury risks; mouthguards act as cushions between teeth that spread impacted forces throughout the mouth to significantly decrease injury risks while alleviating pain caused by clenching and grinding.
Mouth splints are occlusal appliances used to protect teeth from the effects of clenching and grinding, as well as to relieve strain on muscles and jaw joints known as the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). There are different kinds of mouth splints, such as soft and hard occlusal stabilization bite splints. Both provide extra protection from excessive abrasion on occipital surfaces of teeth while also being helpful against frequent or severe clenchers/grinders.
A splint can be made of various materials, such as acrylic, porcelain and composite resin. Custom-fitted by your oral health professional for best results; over-the-counter options also exist but these should only be used short term.
No matter whether the purpose is to reduce clenching or treat bruxism, its purpose should always be to alleviate symptoms such as sore jaw, headache and tooth wear. Splints for these purposes should ideally be worn overnight while sleeping – though they may also be worn while engaging in activities which might trigger clenching/grinding, such as reading/writing.
The splint features an occlusal platform shaped in a horseshoe for optimal use against functional occlusion, providing muscle-dominant functionally generated occlusion that balances teeth, bite and body in harmony.
As well as creating a more comfortable occlusal environment, the splint also aids periodontal ligament proprioception by dissipating forces on individual teeth in the arch and relieving any overloading on certain ones. Furthermore, the splint provides the guidance necessary for proper closing and excursive mandibular movements by making sure posterior teeth do not engage in closing activities or parafunctional activities.
