Why Is Orthodontic Treatment So Important?

You own the most powerful tool in the world, which is your smile. Perfectly aligned teeth can add charm to your smile. Crooked teeth can interfere with proper chewing, which may cause digestive problems. It can also cause excessive wear and tear on the teeth, gums, and jaw muscles. If your teeth are misaligned, they can affect the way you articulate sound, causing problems with speech.

Your smile and confidence don’t need to suffer because of crooked and misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. The aim of orthodontic treatment is not only to visually and aesthetically improve a patient’s smile but to improve their oral hygiene and to improve their bite.

Orthodontics at Ashton Avenue Dental

Revolutionary treatments like clear braces, metal braces, and Invisalign are used at our Ashton Avenue Dental clinic to strengthen your teeth. In your initial consultation, our dentist will conduct a clinical exam of the soft and hard tissues in the mouth. It generally includes taking impressions of your teeth, taking photographs, and X-rays of the mouth and head. An appropriate treatment plan is prepared based on the analysis of the gathered information.

If braces are the dental treatment that suits your requirements the best, our dentist will prescribe a device-specific to your needs. The braces may consist of bands, wires, and other fixed or removable corrective appliances. The choice of this device varies from individual to individual as there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to orthodontics. Clear aligners could also be a treatment of choice if that suits your requirements.

We, at Ashton Avenue Dental Practice, pride ourselves in providing excellent dental care in Claremont, in a warm and family-oriented environment.

When Is The Best Time To Begin Orthodontics?

The initial orthodontic screening should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. This age may seem quite young, but at this stage, it is easy to identify potential teeth or jaw problems long before they actually occur and possibly prevent some more severe problems from developing.

The good news is that orthodontic treatment can be done at any age as excellent oral health that comes from well-aligned teeth and a confidence-boosting smile are important to everyone. Initiating treatment on time helps to prevent later issues and ensures the best result in the least duration of treatment and expense.

What Are The Advantages Of Early Treatment?

Timing is everything! Early orthodontic intervention provides tons of insight into the alignment of jaws and gives orthodontists the opportunity to evaluate dental development.

Some of the most visible results of interceptive treatment include:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Creating facial symmetry through influencing jaw growth
  • Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal
  • Reducing treatment time with braces

Are You A Candidate For Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics is a dental treatment for all people. No matter how old you are, orthodontic treatment is regarded as the most effective way to improve your dental health, appearance, and especially general health. The most common misunderstanding is that orthodontic treatment is only for children while the fact is that this dental treatment also works on adults effectively. Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; orthodontic treatment also improves bad bites also known as Malocclusions. They occur because of a tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile.

Why Should Malocclusions Be Treated?

The malocclusion occurs when the teeth and jaws are misaligned. According to studies, untreated malocclusions can result in a variety of problems. Malocclusion has a vast impact on an individual’s social interactions and self-esteem. Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease.

Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Cross-bites can result in unfavourable growth and uneven tooth wear. Open-bites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smile—it ensures a healthier you.
