Orthodontics not only offers the promise of an attractive smile but so much more! It will enhance your quality of life and your health. Orthodontics is now for the entire family and works for people of all ages. A beautiful smile allows children and teens to be more self-confident. Technology and experience have allowed Dr. Black to use the most discreet braces and clear aligners to treat a wide range of patients that, in the past, would’ve required extraction, head-gear, and surgery. Not only do we treat children, but we have more adults than ever seeking orthodontic treatment.
Your self-esteem increases as your teeth, jaws, and lips become properly aligned. Proper alignment also enables you to achieve an improved bite (aka occlusion) and a more proportional facial structure. In post-treatment photographs, we’ve often noticed that patients sit up straighter, are more eager to smile, and project confidence in their overall appearance!
After treatment, patients are able to chew their food more easily. Chewing is the first step in digestion. If your teeth are crooked then you can’t chew your food properly, which often leads to recurrent indigestion.
Some individuals may seek treatment to alleviate or prevent health problems. Crooked teeth are hard to clean and you may have more cavities and gum problems without proper treatment. These problems become progressively worse with time as the teeth become more rotated and crowded.
Orthodontics can prevent problems associated with a malocclusion, or “bad bite.” A bad bite can contribute to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) discomfort, facial pain, temporal headaches, speech impairments, tooth loss, chipped teeth, and other dental injuries.
Patients learn tips for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. During orthodontic treatment, Dr. Black and his team will give patients all the tools and techniques required to keep their braces and clinical appliances clean. They will also teach patients about maintaining good oral hygiene so that results will last a lifetime.
