Orthodontics – Advanced, Comprehensive Treatment for Teens and Adults
When you think of orthodontics, you might envision a teenager with a mouthful of metal. The latest advances in orthodontics have made that image a thing of the past. Braces come in a variety of materials and are used increasingly by adults to correct problems with spacing and to address temporomandibular disorders (TMD).
We are pleased to offer this highly specialized dental service at our clinic. We use some of the most advanced orthodontic approaches to treat our patients. We pay attention not only to the alignment of the teeth but also to the health of the muscles, ligaments and bony structures to maintain long term stability and health in the entire dento-facial apparatus.
Orthodontics and Teeth Alignment
Orthodontic treatment is used to correct problems of excessive space between teeth and crooked or crowded teeth. This therapy is also used to correct overbites, underbites and crossbites. The therapy usually involves the use of braces to create spaces or reshape the teeth and jaws.
Orthodontics and TMD
The science of orthodontics is increasingly being used by adults to treat TMD which causes pain to millions of people everyday. TMD is often associated with headaches, muscle spasms, dizziness and ringing in the ears.
In order to properly treat TMD, it is imperative that it is assessed in a clear and comprehensive manner in order to rule out any degenerative joint diseases. Our thorough orthodontic evaluations include an examination of the joints in order to help patients achieve both healthy joints and beautiful smiles.
Orthodontics and Aesthetics
Many adults are also discovering the difference that improved alignment can make to the appearance of their smiles. The use of braces to improve the look of a smile is gaining in popularity. With newer materials, braces are less visible than ever before!
