Upper and lower arch occlusal relationship abnormalities, jaw size, and position abnormalities, facial deformity, etc., are referred to as malocclusion. Severe maxillary teeth are not easy to clean, easy to smash, and introverted deep occlusal occlusions can easily cause damage to the temporomandibular joint.
Some patients are unable to even chew, which seriously affects their overall health. Some buried teeth also require orthodontic treatment to aid in pulling out and aligning them to normal positions.

Why wear retainers after orthodontic treatment?
After orthodontic treatment, it is generally necessary to wear a retainer to keep the teeth up to a new position and to return to their original position. Since the reconstruction of bones and adjacent tissues takes some time, the occlusion balance has not been established.
Orthodontic treatment that exceeds the normal limits of the jaws will result in unstable outcomes. Therefore, in order to avoid recurrence, it is generally necessary to maintain a period of time.
Why is the orthodontic cost so expensive?
Orthodontic treatment is long and the average time is 2-3 years. Orthodontic doctors analyze the etiology of patients, design treatment procedures, and deal with a series of problems in the process of orthodontics, which are extremely complicated, so the cost is naturally expensive.

The ceramic bracket is transparent, but metal archwire is still used, but it is not as conspicuous as ordinary metal, and the aesthetic effect is slightly better. The use of self-locking troughs is good for tooth brushing and is relatively easy to clean. The effect of stealth correction on aesthetics is small.
It is similar to a transparent retainer. Each visit is a pair of patients. It is necessary for patients with social requirements and those who do not want to touch troughs in the mouth. Invisible correction is the best choice. However, the same cost is much more expensive than ordinary troughs.
Why do other doctors stop seeing after orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontics is the long-term treatment process in which doctors and patients cooperate with each other. In this process, parents’ attention and cooperation are also very important.
A doctor’s idea, a treatment plan, which is why the orthodontics began, the doctor will give the patient a face-to-face photo, mouth photo, take a model, shoot a film to collect a series of materials. The middle of the other doctors will not be able to get used to it. This is not only a healing process but also a responsibility issue.
