What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. The primary goal of orthodontic care is to create a harmonious balance between the teeth and facial structures, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing and functional smile. Using various orthodontic appliances, including braces and aligners, our dentists work to shift and align teeth into their optimal positions gradually.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO)

Recommends that all children should have an evaluation with an orthodontist by the age of 7 regardless of how many teeth have erupted. This is because our dentists can predict any structural changes that may occur as your child gets older. Addressing such structural changes with braces can save your child's smile and also prevent any additional dental issues down the road.

What are the Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment offers a myriad of benefits that extend beyond the aesthetic enhancement of a straighter smile. Here are some key advantages:

  1. Improved Oral Health: Orthodontic treatment helps align teeth and jaws, reducing the risk of oral health issues such as gum disease, cavities, and uneven wear on tooth surfaces. A properly aligned bite is crucial for maintaining oral health in the long run.
  2. Enhanced Aesthetics: One of the most visible benefits is the improvement in the appearance of your smile. Straight teeth boost confidence and contribute to a positive self-image, positively impacting social and professional interactions.
  3. Better Functionality: Correcting misalignments and bite issues enhances the overall functionality of the teeth and jaws. This can lead to improved speech, easier chewing, and reduced strain on jaw joints, preventing discomfort and potential long-term issues.
  4. Prevention of Dental Trauma: Protruding or misaligned teeth are more susceptible to damage during accidents or contact sports. Orthodontic treatment helps position teeth properly, reducing the risk of dental trauma.
  5. Easier Oral Hygiene: Straight teeth are easier to clean, making oral hygiene practices more effective. Properly aligned teeth are less prone to plaque buildup, reducing the likelihood of cavities and gum disease.
  6. Confidence Boost: A straight and beautiful smile can significantly boost self-esteem and confidence. Feeling good about one’s smile can positively impact various aspects of life, from personal relationships to professional opportunities.
