What Are Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that covers the diagnosis and prevention of misaligned teeth, jaws and bite patterns. These issues are extremely common and can be corrected through the use of orthodontics.
These orthodontic treatments straighten your teeth so they look and function their best. Orthodontic dentistry improves the appearance of your face by ensuring that your jaw muscles operate properly. Braces and other common orthodontics use gentle pressure to gradually move your teeth into their optimal position. This process improves the function of your mouth by effectively re-aligning your jaw structure.
Causes of Orthodontic Issues
A number of factors may affect the size and position of your teeth and jaw. Problems like crooked teeth may ‘run in the family.’ You may have once had a habit that affected your teeth, such as thumb-sucking. A lost tooth may impact the positioning of those surrounding it, causing undesired movement. Whatever the cause may be, trust our team of orthodontic experts to straighten out your teeth.
Benefits of Orthodontics
Teeth that are crooked, crowded, or unevenly protruding will impact the way you look, and how your teeth fit together. Your bite pattern and resulting ability to clean your teeth may also be negatively affected. If this occurs, bacteria can gather in those hard-to-reach places and lead to more severe issues in the future. You can feel more confident with properly straight teeth, while also improving your ability to maintain healthy oral hygiene.
Who Can Receive Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatments are most commonly used for younger patients who have teeth that are developing incorrectly. Our methods have a faster effect on patients at this stage of life, as the position of their teeth is easier to correct.
This service is not just for teens, it is also available to adult patients. If you are an adult with any misalignment issues, we can effectively correct them for you. These treatments may take longer for patients of older ages, as their teeth are more solidified in place. No matter your age, North Centre Dental can help you attain your perfect smile.
