Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. In addition to improving your health and appearance, it can also improve your self-esteem. You may benefit from orthodontic treatment if your teeth are crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned.
How Orthodontics Impacts Your Health
Crooked or misaligned teeth are harder to clean, which makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease. These conditions can cause more severe dental problems if left untreated.
Orthodontic treatment aligns your teeth and jaws, making it easier to clean your teeth, and improving your oral health. Proper alignment reduces the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues.
Orthodontics and Appearance
A healthy, straight smile can boost your self-image, self-confidence, and overall appearance. A straight smile is considered attractive and can make you look younger and more vibrant.
The length of your orthodontic treatment will depend on your individual needs. Factors that can affect the duration of your treatment include early orthodontic intervention, type of treatment, and compliance.
At Everbright Dental, we offer advanced solutions for your orthodontic treatment which include:
Traditional braces: These are the most common type of braces and are made of metal brackets and wires.
Ceramic braces: These braces are similar to traditional braces, but the brackets are made of clear or tooth-colored materials that blend with your teeth.
SureSmile®: This treatment uses 3D imaging technology to create customized braces for each patient.
Invisalign®: These are clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. They are removable and virtually invisible.
