What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a dental specialty that straightens teeth. The goal of orthodontic treatment is to improve a patient’s overall oral health and their bite. At Orthodontic Specialists of Florida, we also treat problems with the growth of the jaw and facial structures. Examples of oral health conditions that may require orthodontic treatment include:
- Gaps and spacing between the teeth
- A problem with the teeth, jaw, and other facial structures that hinder a patient’s ability to eat and speak properly
- Correcting properly teeth that are crooked or misaligned
- Patients with teeth that display an excessive amount of wear
Benefits of Orthodontics
When people think about orthodontics, they often associate this specialty with braces; however, orthodontics plays a larger role in overall oral health. The goal of orthodontics is to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked or misaligned teeth can create an environment where food particles and bacteria can reside. When a person has gaps between their teeth, the gums are more susceptible to harmful plaque and bacteria. Orthodontics can also help a person improve their speech and ability to chew.
What Kinds of Braces are Available?
Traditional metal braces are an important part of pediatric dental care and are the most popular option for children. Metal braces, typically made from stainless steel, are attached to the front of the teeth.
We also offer the following types of braces:
- Ceramic Braces (clear braces)
- Gold Braces
Patients with gaps in their teeth, crooked teeth, teeth overcrowding or similar issues may be ideal candidates for orthodontic treatment. Here are some of the reasons adults and children should visit Orthodontic Specialists of Florida for orthodontic treatment:
- Orthodontic treatment can help you improve your oral hygiene by not allowing tooth decay to form in overcrowded teeth.
- Straightening teeth can help a person gain a beautiful smile and improve their confidence.
- Patients with crooked teeth have issues with eating and chewing; braces will correct both.
