Frequently Asked Questions About Braces

Is orthodontic treatment suitable for patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems or patients who are pregnant?

Patients with high diabetes, blood pressure and heart problems must inform their orthodontic specialist/dentist before commencing any dental surgery or orthodontic treatment.

Pregnant women can undergo orthodontic treatment safely but need to inform their dentist so that appropriate changes can be made to some of your dental care.

What causes crooked teeth?

There are various reasons for crooked teeth. They are namely genetics, premature loss of primary teeth and bad habits. 

Genetics: some people are simply born with smaller jaws. In such cases, the teeth compete for space when erupting. Hence, they will rotate, move and overlap with other teeth in order to fully erupt into the oral cavity. 

Early loss of primary teeth: The remaining teeth may shift in order to fill up the empty space left by the missing tooth. When the permanent tooth does replace the baby tooth, it may move from its normal position and erupt in a crooked manner.

What happens after the braces are removed/ after I complete my Invisalign treatment?

Post braces or Invisalign treatment is important to maintain your new teeth positions. Orthodontic retainers are essential in holding your newly aligned teeth in place.
