Dr. Suhrab Singh explains orthodontic treatment options for “Poor Bite” dental conditions

Dr Suhrab Singh

Poor bite or bad bite is a common dental problem which can be resolved through better and advanced orthodontic treatments.  This condition is known as malocclusion as the upper and the lower teeth are not aligned when the mouth is closed. Untreated malocclusion can lead to a host of dental problems such as gum disease, decay of teeth, issues in chewing food, speech issues, damage to the tooth enamel, and more.

Dr. Suhrab Singh, founder of the Neo Dental Care in Noida explains how orthodontic treatment can help to resolve the bad or poor bite dental issues. He is considered as one of the best dentists in Noida offering result-oriented and cost-efficient orthodontic treatment in Noida.

Dr. Suhrab Singh states, ‘Carefully planned orthodontic treatment is very effective in treating bad or poor bite conditions. Moreover, with advanced treatment options available, the patients are very much at ease during the treatment period. My patients are extremely satisfied with the outcomes of their orthodontic treatment and feel very confident too.’

In response to what are malocclusion and its reasons, he states that there are various reasons for its occurrence. Some of the reasons of malocclusion are thumb sucking habit, gap left by a fallen/missing tooth encouraging the other teeth to move, inherited misaligned set of teeth, larger teeth as compared to the size of the jaw.

Also, there are three of malocclusion which are based on the bite and depending upon the misalignment of the upper or the lower jaw.  The most common type of malocclusion is referred to as Class 1malocclusion, which is identified by a normal bite but a slight overlap of the upper teeth on the lower teeth.  The Class 2 malocculsion refers to an overbite condition in which the upper teeth and jaw overlap the lower teeth and jaw to a great extent while the Class 3 malocclusion, the lower jaw and teeth are more forward than the upper jaw and teeth and overlap them as well.

The orthodontic treatment begins with clinical evaluation of the teeth accompanied by x-rays and creates models of the patient’s dental structure. Following this, a comprehensive plan will be chalked out for the patient. The treatment plan can include wearing of braces which apply steady pressure to the teeth and move them in the required direction and position.

Once the braces are installed, they will be adjusted regularly for which the patient needs to visit the dentist at scheduled intervals. Once the desired position of the teeth is achieved, the braces are removed and the patient has to wear retainers in order to maintain the teeth in the new position.

Dr. Suhrab Singh elaborates on braces as dental tools which help in aligning teeth which could be crooked, misaligned or crowded. Along with braces, the dentist may use bands, wires and fixed or removable tools as per requirement. The orthodontic treatment is customized and hence it differs from person to person.

He proceeds to suggest when patients should seek the orthodontic treatments. It is possible to start dental treatments in children above 5 years or more or during their teens and also once they turn into adults. As mentioned earlier, no two treatments are alike, the orthodontic doctor will suggest the most suitable age for the same.

It is also possible that treatment is done in a single stage or in two stages, though two stage treatments are slightly expensive. Ideally, the dental treatment for malocclusion should be completed by the time the patients reach their teens.

In case of delayed orthodontic treatment especially in adults, the treatment can take longer as the jaw bones and teeth have reached their full growth. Also, habits such as clenching, grinding of teeth, tongue thrust, smoking do affect the treatment.

People with poor or bad bite dental conditions suffer from low self-esteem and are hesitant within their circles and society. Hence, Dr. Suhrab Singh suggests that early treatment of poor or bad bite dental conditions is essential. But the challenge is to choose a highly experienced dentist who is an expert in orthodontist treatments and ensure the patients feel good and confident after their poor bite issue is resolved.
