Benefit of Orthodontic Care
When patients visit our office to inquire about orthodontic care, their number one concern is usually the appearance of their teeth. While patients do love the straight teeth they see following the completion of treatment, there are many other benefits that orthodontic care can offer for your oral health such as:
Eliminate Repeated Decay
Issues with spacing and crooked teeth can lead to an increase in dental decay due to food being trapped between the teeth. Some patients have teeth that are so close together that it is difficult to floss on a daily basis. Unfortunately, patients who experience this degree of overcrowding will suffer from repeated tooth decay.
Assist with TMD Symptoms
Patients who have bite issues may also suffer from jaw tenderness and temporomandibular joint disorder. Orthodontic care can improve the bite, eliminating the pressure in different areas of the jaw and relieving the persistent discomfort.
For patients who are interested in receiving orthodontic care, we offer Invisalign® treatment. Invisalign is a series of clear aligner trays that slowly transition teeth to the desired placement. Our adult patients love this method because it allows them to receive orthodontic care discreetly, as the trays are virtually invisible. This orthodontic option provides many benefits to patients that traditional metal braces do not offer, such as removable trays and no food restrictions.
