Some Of The Benefits Of Orthodontics

By admin

A nice smile is important to many people and one of the benefits of orthodontics is to help create that smile for people who need a little extra care and attention. Another is properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, and a third is certain procedures can help relieve painful conditions in the jaw caused by misaligned teeth.

For many people, a wide open smile showing their pearly white teeth all aligned and clean is important, but some people are born with teeth that do not align properly and they might not be as happy with their smile. Fortunately, there are dentists who are specially trained in the treatment and study of these issues that they can see to help them remedy this situation.

Dentists who specialize in orthodontics can develop a program to help realign and straighten teeth. A common method is using braces that gently move the teeth back to where they should be by applying pressure to the bracket and teeth. They can correct under bites, over bites, and several other common conditions.

There are dental health issues, like periodontal disease and gingivitis, are also addressed when you get your teeth straightened. Poorly aligned teeth are very hard to clean and bits of food can become stuck in the gaps between the teeth. This can make it difficult to properly floss and brush to remove these bits of food, and as a result, tooth decay and bad breath can develop.

When teeth are put back into their natural position, many of these gaps are eliminated, and it will be easier to remove the stuck food particles by flossing and brushing. Your smile will look cleaner and whiter and your breath will smell fresher.

Sometimes, work on the jaw is necessary to relieve pain and improve facial appearances. A condition called malocclusion exists when the upper and lower portions of the jaw do not match up properly. Some level of malocclusion is common and does not require any special attention, but there are times when it can be severe enough that the face appears abnormal and/or pain results when biting or chewing.

Depending on the severity of the condition of malocclusion, there are several options available to help correct this condition, and eliminate the pressure on the teeth, muscles and jaws. This can help reduce the pain associated with temporomandibular joint disorders caused by bad bite patterns. Treatments can range from methods to relax the muscles, taking certain medications, and using mouth guards. In more severe cases, they might consider more aggressive treatment, but in any case, it is very important to consult with your dentist before you decide on a course of action.

The benefits of orthodontics are readily apparent when one is trying to improve their smile, or are concerned about taking good care of their teeth so they last a long time, or if they have teeth that are misaligned and causing problems with their jaws or facial appearance.
