There are different types of orthodontic appliances that your dentist may use depending on your issue. We'll go over the common orthodontic appliances and when they are used.
Probably the most common type of orthodontic treatment, braces can be used by patients with varying levels of complexities and at different ages.
If you suffer from a sleep disorder like sleep apnea, there are devices that can help you to sleep more soundly throughout the night. These sleep disorder devices can help alleviate issues like snoring by opening the airways. Typically, they are made of plastic or acrylic and worn over the teeth like most orthodontic appliances. These sleep disorder devices can help to keep the patient's airway open and also stabilize the jaw and tongue. They are often custom-fitted to suit the individual's needs and ensure they are comfortable to wear.
Some teeth have cusps that are either too low or too high. This is a dental issue that hinders proper jaw closure. The occlusal equilibration is a device that reshapes the biting surfaces of the teeth and stabilizes them.
Patients who have abnormal wear or pain in areas like the jaw or shoulders may be good candidates for occlusal equilibration. The orthodontist may also recommend this device is he/she notices that the lower and upper jaw doesn't match properly.
This device can be applied in a single appointment. However, in severe cases, it may require multiple dental visits. The goal is to stabilize the bite and eliminate symptoms like pain.
