The majority of people wish to have a gorgeous, perfect smile. They pursue orthodontic procedures to achieve this aim. If you are self-conscious about your smile, orthodontic treatments may help to enhance how it appears and how you feel about it. We can provide you with a comfortable orthodontic experience at Smile Plus Dentistry, and our practice is dedicated to providing you with superior care.

Importance of Orthodontics

Crooked teeth can have an impact on one's oral health as well as one's self-esteem. Misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean and, in the long term, may contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. Crooked or misaligned teeth might interfere with normal meal chewing, resulting in indigestion problems. Such teeth can also cause excessive wear and tear on the teeth, jaw muscles, and other structures, resulting in fractured teeth, severe headaches, jaw strain, and temporomandibular joint disease. Misaligned teeth might also cause issues with one's speech.

Aligning one's teeth and jaws with orthodontic treatments can prevent all of these concerns as well as other oral problems in the long run. Furthermore, orthodontic and corrective treatments aid in the prevention of more serious disorders that may influence one's dental health and facial appearance. 

Types of Orthodontic Treatments

Metal braces are now smaller and lighter than in the past. We could also provide some choices to personalize or make them more appealing, such as colorful elastic ties.

Clear braces include brackets that match the color of the teeth, making them less visible. This is because these brackets are composed of ceramic or composite materials rather than metal. 

Clear aligners are a series of removable clear plastic trays that are worn in a specified sequence to gradually straighten teeth. They were previously only advised for adult patients, but today they have unique properties that make them appropriate for teens who are concerned about their aesthetic look. The most major benefit is that they are nearly unnoticeable.

Advantages of Orthodontic Treatments

  • Orthodontic treatments are beneficial to patients of all ages.
  • Orthodontic treatments correct facial disfigurements caused by incorrect jaw alignment, crooked teeth, or tooth overcrowding.
