Orthodontic Treatment is where the dentist treat inappropriately positioned jaw and teeth. Teeth that are not aligned properly have a high risk of being lost early as they are prone to decay and it is difficult to clean them. Orthodontic instruments are used to apply the pressure on jaws. The methodology is prescribed to patient depending on the severity of the problem by a dentist.
Currently, there are a lot of instruments, that are both fixed and removable that are used to move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. Primarily there are three instruments used in this treatment which are Active, Passive and Functional.
