Have you noticed any irregularities with your jaw or teeth? Are you or someone else in your family unhappy with your smile because of uneven or crowded teeth, leaving you wishing for straighter teeth? You do not have to live with a smile that leaves you unhappy and does not reflect how you truly feel! Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry dedicated to diagnosing, preventing, and treating conditions or concerns related to irregularities with teeth and the jaw. Many concerns that negatively impact facial irregularities can be treated, and a consultation with our team at Implant and Comprehensive Dentistry at one of our Florida offices can help you start your journey to a smile you are proud to show off!
What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is care focused on correcting improperly positioned teeth and jaws. This specialized branch of dentistry can treat existing concerns as well as provide preventive treatment for conditions as or before they develop.
Although it is commonly associated with straightening teeth, orthodontics is also largely associated with misaligned jaws. Common indicators of a need for orthodontic care include:
- Crowding of the teeth
- Misplaced midline
- Open bite
- Spacing issues between teeth
A consultation with our team in Winter Haven or Champions Gate near Celebration can help understand and explore how orthodontics could improve your overall oral health.
How Could I Benefit from Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is focused on treating malocclusions, which are misalignments related to the positioning of teeth when the jaw is closed. It is important to treat any area of your health that you are concerned about, but it is imperative to treat malocclusions because, if unaddressed, they can potentially develop into other conditions affecting larger areas of your health, such as:
- Back, neck, or shoulder pain
- TMJ syndrome
Orthodontics is a wide-ranging but specialized branch of care, and our team in Florida can help ensure you are getting the treatment you need. There are a variety of fixed and removable hardware options available to not only straighten your teeth but affect jaw positioning.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Orthodontics care can benefit anyone concerned about a possible misalignment of the teeth and jaw. While it is a popular area of treatment for straightening teeth of teenagers with braces, adults are also strong candidates for the benefits of orthodontic care!
A consultation with our team at either of our Florida offices can help identify your areas of concern and develop a treatment plan right for you. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment as well as remember that results will vary for each person and procedure.
