Teeth Straightening and treatment for a displaced tooth

To straighten teeth or treat displaced teeth you need an Orthodontist. So, what is the difference between a Dentist and an Orthodontist.
Dentistry is concerned with the prevention and treatment of oral diseases, including that of the teeth, supporting structures and soft tissues of the mouth. A dentist is a General Practitioner.


An Orthodontist is a Specialist Dentist dealing with the prevention and correction of irregularities to the teeth. It is a very specialised branch of dentistry. 

Teeth Straightening:

Braces and surgery are the common methods of correction. Provided that the teeth and gums are strong and healthy, braces are a great option for all ages. For children, they are best, as their bodies are still growing and adaptable.
  1. Metal Braces:  these are preferred for complex alignment issues and use wire, bands and brackets. In extreme cases, head gear may be necessary.
  2. Ceramic Braces: these work the same as metal ones but are made of ceramic. They are either clear or tooth coloured,but tend to stain or break easily.
  3. Invisible Braces: these are made out of clear plastic and are specific to each person’s mouth. They are like sports mouth guards and are fitted over each tooth and have to be replaced twice monthly.
  4. Lingual Braces: the side of the teeth facing the tongue is the Lingual surface and these braces are similar to metal braces but attach to the back of the teeth. They are very expensive.

Surgery to reposition the teeth and gums is another option. However, one may still have to wear braces. If the teeth are affecting the ability to speak or chew, another type of surgery called Orthognathic surgery to realign the jaw may be recommended.

Displaced Teeth or Dental Avulsion:

This is the complete displacement of teeth from the jaw bones, often due to trauma. This is considered an emergency treatment. Immediate replantation is the best option. 

When this is not possible, replacement with artificial teeth or prosthetic, may be necessary and depends upon each case.

Management of tooth avulsion

Complete displacement of a tooth from its socket in the alveolar bone due to trauma or related issues is known as tooth avulsion. Tooth avulsion is considered to be a dental emergency and requires prompt treatment. Certain sports would lead to dental injuries such as rugby, basketball, and similar activities. Custom-made mouth protectors can be used as best protection or preventing the tooth from injuries or damages.  


Treatment 

Generally, the dentist will clean the socket, wash the teeth, and replant them into their sockets. They would use a saline solution to clean the avulsed permanent tooth. However, the doctor will make sure there is no damage occurring on the surface of the root, which might have living periodontal fiber and cells. Once the cleaning is performed, the doctor would attempt to replant the tooth in its original socket and laser splint after several weeks.  

If timely treatment or replacement is not performed for the avulsed teeth, then it might result in a less favorable diagnosis for the tooth. If the mouth is injured or sore, then cleansing the wound may be necessary along with stitches. These stitches would require local anesthesia and a tetanus immunization if the mouth is contaminated with soil. Avulsed primary teeth should not be replanted to avoid damage or permanent dental issues. At times an immediate replant will not be recommended if there are any infections. Medications would be provided to treat the infections initially, and then the treatment would be given. The dentist will remove the dental pulps of the replanted teeth after 10 days of the procedure. A root canal treatment will be performed after this.  

For a treatment to be long term, the doctor would recommend simple measures such as good oral hygiene, a soft and cold diet, and stay away from smoking. All these can provide a favorable condition for periodontal ligaments regeneration.
