Orthodontic Treatments that Transform Confidence, Comfort, and Health

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

If you have crooked or poorly spaced teeth, an improper bite, or other structural problems, orthodontic treatments could provide a solution that makes your teeth both look and function better. Early tooth loss, dental injuries, or congenital disorders can result in unsightly alignment issues and even painful, chronic conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder. Orthodontic treatment can resolve pain, and provide the stunning, perfectly aligned smile you deserve. Your family dentist may be able to perform minor orthodontic procedures, but for complex problems and braces, you’ll be referred to an orthodontic specialist.

Benefits of Braces

Correcting an underbite or crowded teeth with braces does far 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 oral hygiene more difficult and less effective, which can result in 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 ear or jaw pain. An orthodontist can help resolve or prevent these issues.

Types of Braces

Conventional braces are the most commonly used in corrective orthodontic treatments. 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 braces with 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.
