Orthodontic Treatments Restore Function and Create Symmetry

dca-blog_article-51_orthodontic-treatments-transform-confidence

Orthodontic treatments resolve crooked teeth, spacing issues, malocclusion and other abnormalities to provide both improved function and a more desirable appearance. If you have suffered an accidental tooth injury or tooth loss, or your misaligned bite is causing temporomandibular joint pain, modern orthodontic treatments can relieve pain, give you back your healthy smile, or create a new one you never dreamed you could have. Most general dentists can perform minor orthodontic corrections, but for more advanced problems, you will be referred to an orthodontist for evaluation.

More Benefits of Orthodontic Therapy

Using braces to correct crowded teeth or an underbite does much more than improve your self-confidence and make you proud of your smile. It also improves your general oral health. Poorly positioned teeth make routine dental care more difficult, which can cause tooth decay and periodontal disease. A malocclusion can interfere with your ability to eat and speak properly. It may also cause added wear on tooth enamel, headaches, and jaw or ear pain. Orthodontic treatments can potentially eliminate or prevent these problems.

Types of Orthodontic Treatments

Braces are the most common corrective devices used in orthodontic treatment. They may be fixed or removable and made from metal, plastic or ceramic. The brackets attached to each tooth’s surface exert pressure over a long period of time to gradually move the tooth into a more desirable position. Retainers are used to maintain the position once it has been achieved. Plastic aligner trays are an aesthetically pleasant alternative to conventional brackets. They are best suited for adults with minor spacing problems Aligners can be removed for eating and brushing, and they are virtually invisible when in use. Other less common orthodontic appliances include space maintainers for maintaining jaw position when a baby tooth is lost too early and palatal expanders, which help correct pediatric problems with the upper arch.
