What Problems Can Be Fixed With Dental Orthodontics?
Orthodontics are a common treatment for patients experiencing cosmetic issues with their teeth. However, most people don’t realize how much more beneficial these treatments can be. Dental orthodontics can do more than just straighten some crooked teeth. In fact, crooked teeth and a misaligned jaw can lead to many serious issues in the long run that may not be so obvious. Orthodontics are a cost effective way to solve dental issues for now and in the future as well as improving the appearance of the smile overall.
The different issues orthodontics can effective treat include:
- Fixing crowded teeth
- Preventing against grinding and clenching of the teeth
- Realigning the jaw
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Straightening crooked teeth
In the past the only dental orthodontic device used to solve these problems were braces, and it’s understandable why people may shy away from this treatment regardless of their age. But modern technology has allowed for more options to come into light and treatments such as ClearCorrect are now available. ClearCorrect are clear aligners that can provide a similar treatment as braces but are invisible and much more discreet.
How Do I Know If I Need Orthodontics?
Knowing whether or not you need orthodontics can be difficult to decide without a professional point of view. A dentist can use your X-ray and examination results to decide if orthodontic treatment is the proper solution to your dental problems.
