What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a dentistry field focused on giving people straighter teeth. Teeth that are misaligned are diagnosed, treated, and maintained for smiles with more than just visual benefits. Uneven bites may put extra strain on the jaw that result in regular pain or TMJ/TMD. Overcrowded teeth could also make daily brushing and flossing difficult, which overtime results in more dental fillings or gum disease.

Orthodontics uses a combination of metal braces, clear aligners, retainers, and other tools to move teeth to their proper positions. Gentle pressure is applied to gradually shift teeth over an extended period of time. Orthodontic treatments are safe and generally pain-free ways to get a smile with a lifetime of oral benefits.

Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

Your dentist will typically let you know if orthodontic treatment is necessary during your regular cleaning or checkup. Through a visual examination and digital x-rays, they’ll be able to suggest the best solution for you. There are also several signs you can look out for on your own if you suspect you might need treatment:

  • Visibly crooked or crowded teeth
  • Misalignment of teeth when closing your mouth
  • Difficulty flossing between crowded or crooked teeth
  • The position of the teeth next to the tongue make speaking difficult
  • Frequent tongue biting or cutting against the teeth

Types Of Orthodontic Treatments

Orthodontic treatments are safe and recommended for all ages. Many people are given braces or aligners as teenagers since their teeth and jaws are still developing, but nearly a quarter of all orthodontic treatments are given to adults. At Bayshore Family Dental, Invisalign® Clear Aligners are our orthodontic treatment of choice.
