Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosing and treating malocclusions or improper bites, which may result from tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
Customized orthodontics for you
When most people think of orthodontics, they imagine a child wearing metal braces. But while traditional metal braces are still widely used, there are many more options available today than ever before. Your dentist can provide the details of all your options and help you decide which orthodontic treatment is right for you.
Before getting any type of orthodontic treatment, it is important to consult a dentist first. Depending on your age, current dental health, and other factors, the dentist may recommend a different course of treatment. In some cases, orthodontics may not be needed at all. During your consultation, your dentist will discuss all of your treatment options with you so that you can make an informed decision about your care.
How does orthodontics work?
Braces and aligners work by gently shifting your teeth into place over time, making your smile straight and beautiful. Many patients see a straighter smile in just a few months! Our orthodontists use new and advanced technology to create a custom treatment plan just for you. In addition to traditional braces, we offer options like Invisalign® clear aligners made of clear plastic that no one will even notice you’re wearing. That way, you can straighten your smile without interfering with your day-to-day activities.
What are the benefits of orthodontics?
Straight teeth are much easier to clean than crowded or crooked teeth, and this helps prevent cavities and other oral health issues from developing in the future. Orthodontics can also help the mouth work more appropriately, which can improve the patient’s overall well-being. Patients may also notice their teeth have a more attractive appearance after orthodontic treatment is complete.
Thanks to the advancements in orthodontics over the last few years, patients hardly feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment phase. The movement of the teeth into their orthodontically right positions can be controlled precisely by the dentist, thus reducing discomfort. Also, the time duration taken to complete the treatment can be reduced significantly.
