Orthodontic treatment is more than cosmetic. While it can help give you a straighter and more attractive smile, orthodontic treatment can also help improve your oral health and function. Misaligned and crooked teeth can be difficult to care for and place added strain on jaw joints. By guiding your teeth and jaws into proper alignment, orthodontic treatment can improve speech impairments, reduce cavities and periodontal disease, and minimize the risk of developing conditions like teeth grinding or TMJ, commonly referred to as lockjaw.
Orthodontic treatment has come a long way in recent years, and patients now have a plethora of options to choose from. Traditional metal or ceramic braces, self-ligating braces, and Invisalign® clear aligners are among the treatment methods available.
More important than the type is the professional you trust with your treatment. Orthodontic treatment should only be performed by an orthodontist certified by the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO). These specialists have the additional medical training necessary to ensure your treatment is completed safely and effectively for a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
