When the concept of orthodontic braces became established it changed the lives of millions of people who had crooked and out of line teeth. In many cases, when a person begins to grow into adolescence the teeth don’t always line up with the way the jaw is growing, and the result is teeth that are crooked.
Another scenario is that there are too many teeth for the jawline to accommodate, so they come in crowded and misaligned, some even growing seemingly out of the gums, above other teeth.
The modern science of orthodontics
The modern science of orthodontics, or the application of orthodontic braces was perfected malocclusions, cross bites, overbites, crooked teeth and other flaws of the jaw and teeth coming in improperly.
Modern orthodontics came about in the early 1900s with the first school for the training of orthodontists being established in the 1930s. Modern orthodontics involves the movement of teeth in the jaw to new positions, accomplished when pressure is placed upon the tooth so that it moves to a new position in the jaw.
This process is accomplished with a system of orthodontic braces that are adjusted as each tooth moves. The makeup of the device consists of caps around each tooth with a wire connection around the caps that are adjusted in such a way as to place the appropriate pressures so that the teeth move to pre-ordained positions in the mouth.
The process of tightening and re-tightening the wire band over time, is what causes the teeth to move. Another, more recent method of causing the teeth to move is accomplished by a single transparent plastic band that is placed behind and over the teeth in progressive shapes that also will move the teeth.
The end result of this process will change the appearance of an individual from having a very misshapen and unsightly mouth to a person with a beautiful, and attractive smile and countenance.
