The issue of malocclusion, or misalignment, can affect people of all ages. To have malocclusion means that teeth do not fit together as they should. This not only affects the smile, but the entire face. Functionally, malocclusion can make speaking and eating more difficult.
Orthodontics is the area of dentistry that corrects misaligned teeth. Our orthodontist works with nearly as many adults as teens, as the view of orthodontic treatment has changed significantly in the past decade. Today, about 30 percent of orthodontic patients are adults. One reason for the surge in orthodontic treatment among adults is that we are realizing more than ever the benefit of healthy, straight teeth in the smile. Another factor is that adults and teens alike are more interested in undergoing treatment thanks to innovations in orthodontic treatment.
Braces are no longer what they used to be. Four Seasons Dental Spa patients find that modern day orthodontics make treatment far more comfortable and discreet.
Orthodontic treatment is tailored to your needs and wants, and can correct:
- Overjet, which creates a protruded appearance.
- Overbite, when the upper jaw extends down beyond the lower jaw so that lower teeth are not seen when you bite down.
- Underbite, the opposite of the overbite, features a lower jaw extension beyond the upper jaw. An underbite accentuates the chin, making it very prominent.
- Overcrowding is a problem commonly seen by orthodontists. Teeth become overcrowded when the amount and/or size of teeth are greater than the size of the jaw. Overcrowding can cause discomfort, as well as oral health issues.
- Aesthetic problems may be slight or severe. The smile can be affected by a single crooked tooth, or by poor face shape associated with the jaw. Orthodontic treatment for aesthetic purposes brings the face into a more harmonious state using proven effective techniques.
InvisalignInvisalign orthodontic treatment is still sometimes confused with cosmetic orthodontics, that which improves only the look of the smile by repositioning visible teeth. Invisalign has been proven incredibly effective at correcting a number of bite issues in the most discreet manner.
Teens and adults alike find Invisalign appealing because there are no “braces.” Invisalign works by applying constant, gentle pressure to teeth via customized, clear, plastic aligner trays. These trays are removable, which means there are no restrictions on the diet, and no special requirements for hygiene. During meals and for brushing and flossing, Invisalign aligners are removed, and reinserted immediately after.
This innovative form of orthodontic treatment does have several benefits, but may not be right for every individual. Our experienced orthodontist considers all factors when recommending orthodontic treatment, and thoroughly explains the details and reasons during your comprehensive consultation.
Straightening crooked, crowded teeth have several benefits. Through orthodontic treatment, it is possible to:
- Improve TMJ dysfunction
- Make teeth easier to keep clean
- Improve digestive function
- Improve comfort and speech
- Improve your life
