Why Orthodontics?

May 21st, 2012

Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental and associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic – beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems which can result from genetic and environmental factors must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs x-rays, and dental impressions, which enable our practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary.

Orthodontic treatment is good for your health and your looks. When jaw discrepancies such as overbites and underbites are corrected, you’ll find it more comfortable to chew, talk, and even breathe!

Orthodontic treatment can resolve cosmetic, functional, and physiological issues such as:

  • Teeth crowding
  • Spaced, missing, or extra teeth
  • Retruded or protruded teeth or jaws
  • A deep overbite
  • An openbite
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing
  • Speech problems
  • Headaches, facial, or neck pain
  • Excessive wear of teeth
