In this video, Dr. Mahesh Verma, Padma Shri Awardee, President of Indian Academy of Restorative Dentistry (IARD) and Vice President of Dental Council of India, talks about gum disease. He tells us that crooked teeth are very hard to clean and before starting the treatment, the dentist has to check whether there is no presence of gum diseases or other infections around the teeth. Dr. Mahesh will explain the procedure how to correct the crooked teeth. Also, during treatment, oral hygiene has to be maintained. Braces for crooked teeth are fixed in adolescents especially when all the permanent teeth have come. Sometimes an orthodontist might take a young child into preventive measure where he can predict the child having irregular teeth.
