Reasons to Correct Orthodontic Problems
Many people choose to have orthodontic treatment to correct a problem with the alignment of the teeth, spacing, or bite problems. Crooked teeth and other bite problems can make you feel embarrassed and self-conscious. Orthodontics can transform your smile and boost your confidence. Although orthodontics is considered cosmetic, there are oral health benefits to fixing problems with the bite and alignment of the teeth.
Correcting orthodontic problems can help with:
- Food particles and bacteria getting stuck between the teeth
- Easier and more thorough teeth cleaning
- Eating and chewing easier
- Speech problems caused by extreme malocclusions
When the teeth are crooked or incorrectly spaced, food can get caught and it is more difficult to properly clean and floss the teeth. Over time, this can result in bacteria breeding between the teeth, which can result in tooth decay. Orthodontics improves the position of the teeth for easier brushing and flossing. This can improve your overall dental health.
Correcting Bite Problems
Orthodontics focuses on correcting problems with the bite, as well as the proper development of the jawbone and facial bones. At Pelican Dental Care, we offer orthodontics in Vero Beach to treat malocclusions, which are also known as bad bites. We provide orthodontic treatment to correct a variety of bite problems.
We can help with orthodontic problems, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth that don’t line up properly
- Open bite and cross bite
The specific treatment and length of time required for correcting orthodontic problems can vary widely. Treatment time for orthodontics depends on what needs to be corrected and work that is needed to move the teeth into proper position.
