The reason most people consider orthodontics is that they have crooked or misaligned teeth which do not fit together as they should.
Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that diagnoses any issues with misaligned teeth and attempts to correct them through repositioning those teeth in a gradual process.
Professionals who become involved with orthodontics are required to spend an additional two years of study beyond dental school. This prepares them to deal with all the issues which might come up when treating patients who have improperly aligned teeth.
Crooked teeth are generally harder to maintain and to keep clean. This means they are much more susceptible to tooth decay and to periodontal disease.
The fact that other oral problems can develop from misaligned teeth makes it even more important that you seek orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic treatments will gradually reposition teeth into a configuration that is more normal and natural for your mouth. When completed, these treatments will leave you with teeth that are much more functional, and which give you a better smile.
Regardless of your age, orthodontic treatment can be extremely beneficial for you. Successful orthodontic treatment will reposition your teeth so that you can chew and bite better, and so that you have a much more appealing smile.
This in turn will give a major boost to your self-confidence, and you’ll feel much better about yourself. Contact us
