If you were born with perfectly aligned teeth, then you are one of the few people that may never have to walk through an orthodontic office. More than likely however, you’re here on this page because you are in need of orthodontic help. Those that have crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth may be suffering from more cosmetic problems rather than functionality nuisances. However, problems such as these can have long-lasting effects on your dental health.
Thanks to advancements in orthodontic technology, you no longer have to have teeth that are crooked or a bite that is misaligned.
Orthodontics is able to offer a host of treatment methods that are both comfortable and effective. These can include traditional metal braces, and even Invisalign. Traditional metal braces consists of wires and brackets that attach to each tooth applying pressure to move your jaws and teeth to ideal positions. On the other hand Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic aligners that also work to adjust your teeth over the course of the entire treatment.
In order to know whether or not you need orthodontic treatment, it is best that you see your general dentist first. Orthodontic treatment usually addresses problems that revolve around your bite and problems in relation to crooked teeth. The main goal of orthodontic treatment is to move your teeth and jaws in a way that align perfectly with one another. For example if you suffer from an unhealthy bite, then you may be experiencing a number of unpleasant symptoms that go far beyond what’s happening in your teeth.
Crooked teeth can also cause a host of other dental health problems. These can include problems with keeping your dental hygiene at its peak, thus making you a victim of an increased risk of tooth decay.
