Orthodontic dentistry refers to the diagnosis and treatment of misaligned teeth or jaw. By using retainers and Invisalign® trays, we can shift your teeth and jaw position and give you the perfect smile you desire. Look no further and get the orthodontic treatment you need at Southern Smiles!
Why Is Orthodontic Dentistry So Important?
As you age, your permanent teeth start shifting and don’t always end up in the correct position. Not only do crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw hinder your appearance, but they also create nooks for bacteria to hide which can trigger other oral problems like decay or gum disease. Other issues resulting from misalignment include:
- TMJ disorder
- Worn-down enamel
- Chewing and speech difficulties
- Weak teeth
Which Conditions Can Orthodontic Dentistry Fix?
With orthodontic treatment, you can tackle issues related to your bite and misaligned teeth, such as:
- An underbite, overbite, or crossbite
- Teeth gaps
When to Start Seeing an Orthodontist
You should start seeing an orthodontist as soon as your primary teeth start falling out, as this is the age when bite and misalignment issues arise. Even though receiving orthodontic treatment as a child or teenager provides faster and more effective results, patients of any age can see an orthodontist to fix the position of their smile.
