Orthodontics is often the ideal solution

When your teeth are overcrowded or crooked, or if you're generally unhappy with the appearance of your smile, orthodontics is often the ideal solution. Orthodontics can improve your smile and self-esteem while improving your oral health. While the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children be evaluated by age seven to detect potential orthodontic issues, patients of all ages may benefit from orthodontics.

Common reasons for orthodontics include:

  • Fix spacing issues caused by excessive gaps or overcrowded teeth
  • Properly align your bite by eliminating overbites, underbites, and other alignment issues
  • Create room for erupting teeth
  • Promote healthy jaw growth and enhance the appearance of your smile

When these issues aren’t properly addressed, patients can experience various health and self-esteem issues. You may develop speech problems or eating difficulties. Being self-conscious about the appearance of your smile can cause many emotional and social disorders. Fortunately, orthodontics can reduce these feelings and give you a smile you’ll be proud to share.

Although people typically associate orthodontics with braces, many options for patients don’t involve a full set of traditional metal braces. The orthodontists at The Dental Specialists fully evaluate your mouth and oral health history to help you determine the right treatment plan. Unlike risky online treatments, our doctors are with you throughout the process. During your initial consultation, we’ll explain all your treatment options and the estimated time and approximate cost.
