Generally, the gingivae (gums) swell during orthodontic treatment because of insufficient cleaning. There maybe a medical reason why they are swelling too so it is always a good idea to seek professional opinion and advice from your Orthodontic practitioner.
A dentist assesses, diagnoses and treats diseases and conditions in the mouth. They may also monitor the soft tissues of the face, checking for any abnormalities.
An orthodontist is initially trained as a dentist but has then gone onto specialise in orthodontics. This is a further qualification carried out over 3 years. An orthodontist, like those at Oldham Orthodontics, treat irregularities in relation to your teeth and jaw. The frequency of your appointments with your dentist or your orthodontist depends what you are attending for.
Congratulations you have now finished the active stage of your orthodontic treatment!
You will now be requested to wear retainers to maintain the current position of your teeth. A variety of retainers are used within orthodontic practice, however at Oldham Orthodontics we generally use fixed retainers, vacuum formed retainers (Essix retainers) or Hawley retainers.
