A Bit About Orthodontics
Patients of all ages can be candidates for orthodontic treatment as long as they have relatively healthy jawbone density and gum tissue. From young children to middle-aged adults, orthodontics can increase oral function, improve appearance, and assist with preventing disease.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits of having a straighter smile, there are benefits to one’s oral health. Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to floss and brush. Practicing thorough oral hygiene can prevent diseases like tooth decay and gum disease.
Moreover, properly positioned teeth improve one’s bite – the way that teeth make contact when the mouth is closed and during oral function. If teeth make improper contact, it can lead to tooth wear and TMJ disorder.
