What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the area of dentistry which has to do with the movement of teeth and development of the jaws to ensure that the teeth and jaws are properly aligned and that any irregularities are addressed. This helps achieve better aesthetics, form, and function to the face, jaws, and teeth.

There are several options available to our patients, depending on their unique needs, and we can help you determine which among them would be the best choice for you.

Using braces, we can address several issues, including:

  • Crowded or overlapping teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Crossbites

The alignment of your teeth has a profound effect on the fit of your jaws, TMJ problems, appearance, etc. With early diagnosis of developing issues such as cross bites, open bites and deep impinging overbites we can intercede and often prevent more involved treatment later.

Patients frequently assume that orthodontics serve a purely aesthetic purpose. However, a misaligned or poorly balanced bite can cause a number of problems to your overall oral health and beyond. By ensuring that you have a healthy bite, you are reducing your risk for gum disease and tooth decay. You can also decrease the likelihood of jaw and head pain that can often appear as a result of misalignment.
