What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialized field of dental care with a focus on straightening crooked or misaligned teeth. The goal of orthodontics is to support patients’ overall dental health while also improving the way their teeth fit together. Orthodontists also work closely with patients to address any issues with the development of the face and jaw. Some common problems that can make orthodontic care necessary include:
- Wear and tear on teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Excessive spacing between teeth
- Problems talking or chewing caused by issues with the jaw, teeth or other craniofacial structures
Benefits of Orthodontics
The specialized treatment provided by orthodontics is typically associated with a bright, healthy smile. However, the true purpose of these services is to ensure the good health of your gums and teeth. Crooked or poorly aligned teeth provide an ideal location for food residue and germs to collect. When teeth are too widely spaced, your gums lack the necessary protection from plaque and bacteria. Furthermore, orthodontic care can enhance your ability to perform everyday functions such as speaking clearly and chewing thoroughly.
What Kinds of Braces Are Available?
Traditional metal or silver braces are the most preferred orthodontic solution for children and are the cornerstone of pediatric dental care. These are made from stainless steel and are affixed by brackets to the front of each tooth.
We also provide these other types of braces:
- Ceramic braces (clear braces)
- Gold braces
Who Can Benefit from Orthodontic Treatment?
If you have crowded or widely spaced teeth or a similar problem, orthodontic treatment may be right for you. Here are some of the most common reasons why adults and children choose to receive treatment from Orthodontic Specialists of Florida:
- Individuals with misaligned teeth often experience difficulty talking or chewing
- Treatment can help you achieve better oral hygiene, thereby lowering your risk of tooth decay
- Using braces to straighten teeth can give you a better smile in the long term as well as improvements in self-confidence
