Orthodontics help people who have one or more issues with the alignment of their teeth. With the help of certain techniques and appliances, orthodontics can restore proper alignment of teeth and improve overall dental health.
What is the Problem With Poor Alignment?
If you have poor alignment, this issue is about more than the way your teeth look. Poor alignment can negatively impact the way you bite, chew and even speak. It can also negatively affect your own self confidence. If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, you may be less likely to smile order to pursue things in life that you want to. Finally, poor alignment often leads to poor dental hygiene, and can threaten your long-term dental health.
Do Orthodontics Give Permanent Results?
Orthodontics require a commitment on the part of the dental patient. But as long as you adhere to the directions for wearing and taking care of your orthodontics, you can anticipate permanent results from the orthodontic treatment. Whether are you are closing the gap in your front teeth, straightening crooked teeth or taking care of an overbite or an underbite, your orthodontics treatment will typically give you permanent results.
Will Orthodontics Be Noticeable?
