Do you want to have a flawless beautiful smile? Orthodontic treatment can treat various conditions such as misaligned, crooked, or misshapen teeth, close gaps, and correct bite problems. It is a common mistaken belief that orthodontic treatments are only for teenagers. Thanks to the recent advances in dental technology, adults can also opt for orthodontic treatments. Besides enhancing your smile cosmetically, orthodontic treatments also help correct crooked or misaligned teeth that may make it difficult to perform oral functions, increasing your risk of other dental issues.
Why Choose Orthodontic Treatments?
Some patients decide on orthodontic treatment for cosmetic reasons to enhance their smile appearance. But having correctly aligned and straight teeth can be critical for health reasons as well.
- Overcrowded or unevenly spaced teeth can be more challenging to clean. This can trap food debris and allow cavities to develop between teeth, increasing the risk of tooth decay and other dental health problems.
- Overbites or protruding teeth are more susceptible to injuries. Addressing a bite problem can lower the risk of severe dental injuries during sports and other activities.
- Gaps between teeth can blemish your smile appearance.
Common Orthodontic Treatments
Fixed braces are standard orthodontic treatments available for straightening teeth. They are affordable and effective and allow you to achieve satisfactory results for a balanced, straight, and perfect smile. Fixed braces can be used to correct teeth crowding, misaligned bites, restricted breathing, and uneven teeth placement. They can be combined with additional orthodontic appliances for a complete alignment.
Preventative orthodontics can be considered for young children. Childhood is a period when the teeth are still developing. Orthodontic appliances can correct and improve common dental developmental issues in children. Dr. Truc Le will assess the jawbone growth and identify underlying concerns such as lack of space for tooth growth, large adenoids, thumb sucking, and nasal septum deviation. Early diagnosis and treatments can go a long way to avoiding lengthy and more costly procedures in the future.
Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment for teeth straightening. It is perfectly suitable for children as well as adults. Invisalign braces consist of a series of virtually invisible aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. These transparent aligners will give you a gentler and more comfortable experience as compared to metal braces. You can take off the aligners during mealtime and for cleaning purposes. With Invisalign braces, you can get your teeth straightened with less physical and emotional impact. The treatment duration will also be considerably reduced.
