LIMITATIONS OF BRACES
Although braces are generally effective in correcting a wide range of malocclusions, they are subject to many limitations and disadvantages. Conventional orthodontic treatment is associated with:
UNATTRACTIVE APPEARANCE: Braces call attention to the patient’s condition and treatment. In addition, braces trap food, which can further compromise appearance. Braces can also result in permanent discoloration of teeth. Many adults associate braces with adolescence.
ORAL DISCOMFORT: Braces are sharp and bulky and can abrade and irritate the interior surfaces of the mouth. The tightening or adjustment of braces results in root and gum soreness and discomfort, especially in the few days immediately following an orthodontic visit.
POOR ORAL HYGIENE: Braces compromise oral hygiene by making it more difficult to brush and floss. These problems can result in tooth decay and periodontal damage. Additionally, the bonding of brackets to teeth can cause permanent markings on the teeth.
INABILITY TO PROJECT TREATMENT: Historically, dental professionals have not had means to model the movement of teeth over a course of treatment. Accordingly, they must rely on intuition and judgment to plan and project treatment. As a result, they cannot be precise about the direction or distance of expected tooth movement between patient visits. This lack of predictability may result in unwanted tooth movements and can limit the their ability to estimate the duration of treatment.
DEMANDS ON DENTAL PROFESSIONAL: The manipulation of wires and brackets requires sustained manual dexterity and visual acuity, and may place other physical burdens on the dental professionals.
ROOT RESORPTION: The sustained high levels of force associated with conventional treatment can result in root resorption, which is a shortening of tooth roots. This shortening can have substantial adverse periodontal consequences for the patient.
