posted on February 14th, 2014

When it comes to beauty, your smile is the best accessory to have. It instantly brightens up your face and makes you look attractive. A straight, attractive smile is considered to be an asset to your personal and professional life, but few of us are born with perfect set of teeth. There are many types of teeth misalignment; “Buck teeth” or “Overbite” is one of the types of teeth misalignment which is common among both kids and adults. Modern dental science offers ways by which Buck teeth can be corrected. So, let’s take a look at some dental procedures that can be used to fix buck teeth, brought to you by Ridgetop Dental International, the leading centre for cosmetic dentistry and dental implants Bangalore.

What do buck teeth look like?

Buck teeth are a form of dental misalignment where, for one reason or another, the two or more front teeth protrude to the extent where they rest on the lip. It’s common in both adults and children and the severity differs from person to person.

Treatment options:

1.Braces: Braces involve a combination of bands, wires and brackets. The brackets are attached to the teeth and then the wires are passed through these brackets and held in place with specially designed bands. With this sort of treatment buckteeth can be straightened as the braces are tightened over time, say the experts at Koramangala Dental clinic serving Jayanagar and surrounding areas. The tightening actually works to move the protruding teeth into the correct position above the lower jaw line.

2. Invisalign: For adults with buck teeth, wearing braces can sometimes be difficult due to professional and personal reasons. For such people, Invisalign offers a ray of hope. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic removable orthodontic trays called aligners which can be used to correct minor or mild overjet if the wearer is compliant to the orthodontic treatment plan. The aligners apply less force and less pain than fixed orthodontic appliances. As the aligners can be removed, tooth brushing and oral hygiene maintenance is much easier than when wearing traditional braces.

3.Surgery:In severe cases of overbite or when the overbite is skeletal in nature, surgery is the best option and gives fast results. The maxillo-facial surgeon may take the maxilla and push it behind or take the mandible and push it ahead. The surgery sometimes needs to be supplemented by orthodontic treatment.

Buck teeth are a common problem, which if treated early gives better result. However, it’s not too late to mend, so, if you are an adult suffering from buck teeth consult your Orthodontist today or simply visit-http://www.ridgetopdental.in/ to find the best orthodontist.
