Orthodontics is a procedure wherein teeth are straightened for various reasons including the improvement of the stability, function and health of patient´s teeth.
Without this procedure, many individuals would be at a higher risk to have gum disease, tooth decay and even tooth loss because of the incorrect way teeth are positioned in their mouth.
With an orthodontic treatment, there is so much more than just a beautiful smile. It can correct crooked or crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joint.
The patient will not only have a beautiful smile with teeth he or she can be proud to show, but will be correcting the position of teeth and thus safeguarding the overall health of the whole mouth.
It has been shown that those who have undergone an orthodontic treatment will smile with more ease without being ashamed of their teeth and without using their hands to cover their mouth.
A smile is your presentation card and everyone wants to show their best assets. By improving the alignment of your teeth you will get that extra boost of self-esteem in social and business situations.
Orthodontics is no longer only for teenagers, and many adults are now researching new types of braces to improve their smile.
Although both teenagers and adults can benefit from this treatment, it is recommended for parents to be aware of their children´s dentition process.
Around the age of 7, a child starts to get adult molars in place and the position of these primary teeth can give the dentist a good perspective of how teeth will develop and if there might be a need for braces or not.
