Limited Tooth Movement

Limited Tooth Movement

One widely used orthodontic technique these days is limited tooth movement. Limited tooth movement allows an orthodontist to change the position of a tooth or teeth that are in the wrong place, and this process occurs without putting braces on all of the teeth.

Dental appliances are placed on the targeted teeth. Slings and retainers are usually used for this purpose. Temporary anchoring devices like mini implants and mini screws are also sometimes used to get a few crooked teeth into the right position in the mouth. While limited tooth movement is not an option for everyone with a crooked tooth or teeth, it remains a good treatment choice for many individuals having cosmetic procedures or restorative treatments on their teeth.
