Everyone knows regular visits to the dentist and at-home maintenance are an important part of oral health, but how much thought have you given to orthodontics?
Orthodontics specialise in correctly aligning teeth, bites and jaws so that they are in an optimal position. This can include treating crowded teeth, overbites and underbites, and other irregularities. Typically, many of these problems can be solved with braces, whether they are traditional metal, invisible ceramic or aligners.
While every smile is unique and beautiful in its own way, some irregularities with teeth, bites and jaws can negatively affect your overall oral hygiene. For instance, overcrowding can increase the likelihood of gum disease and make it harder for you to brush every tooth properly as they crowd on top and around each other. Issues with jaw alignment can lead to regularly biting your tongue, cheeks or lips. Seeking orthodontic treatment can make these problems a thing of the past.
You can talk to your dentist about your concerns and whether orthodontics might be a way to help improve your overall oral health and get you on your way to your ideal smile.
