The Importance of Beautiful, Straight Teeth

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance.

Beautiful, straight teeth blend in to your face and are associated with numerous positive qualities. Nowadays, thanks to state-of-the-art orthodontic techniques, esthetically pleasing teeth are available to everybody.

Orthodontics for Adults

Thanks to modern technology however, orthodontic treatment is a viable option for almost any adult, with a much wider range of discreet options. The fact that one in five orthodontic patients are adults demonstrates that there are plenty of suitable treatment options which can fit comfortably with your lifestyle.

Invisible Orthodontics

In essence invisible orthodontics is a system of clear, sometimes removable braces that are very hard to see. They’re often a favored option of many adults and teenagers alike who really don’t like the idea of wearing clearly visible (and often unsightly) metal braces for months on end. Depending on individual cases this style of braces can often give a patient a much shorter treatment time.

Orthodontics for Kids

There are significant advantages to wearing braces during childhood. A growing child’s teeth and jaws are more easily shaped, as opposed to adults who have to bear a lot more pain, given their developed neuromuscular structure. Of course, the biggest benefit of undergoing orthodontic procedures in childhood is having a beautiful and healthy smile in adulthood.
