The practice of orthodontics primarily deals with diagnosing, preventing and treating facial and dental irregularities. Children and adult orthodontics treat malocclusions, the technical term for an irregular or uneven bite.
Orthodontic treatment usually consists of straightening teeth using a variety of different appliances to correct an underbite or overbite. Achieving facial balance is optimal for your appearance and your health as you’ll be able to chew more effectively and speak more clearly. While our team does not provide our patients with traditional appliances such as metal braces, we do offer our patients the newer classes of clear braces, such as Invisalign.
Reasons for Orthodontic Treatment Vary
Misaligned or crooked teeth can occur for a number of reasons. You can inherit the condition or create it due to poor oral habits, an accident or illness. Some of the inherited traits that may lead to the need for orthodontic treatment include:
- Small teeth
- Uneven bite
- Losing teeth early, leaving extra room for the other teeth to shift
- Larger teeth and smaller arches
You or your children may acquire an uneven bite through any number of causes, such as:
- Finger or thumb sucking
- Using a pacifier as permanent teeth come in
- Tooth loss from an accident or due to untreated decay
- Disease such as enlarged tonsils or adenoids
Symptoms Targeted by Orthodontic Treatment
Our team of Brooklyn family dentists provides a thorough examination before recommending orthodontic treatment. And while you may decide on your own that you want to explore adult orthodontics, you may not even realize that teeth straightening can alleviate other pressing symptoms, such as:
- Jaw pain
- Trouble chewing properly
- Facial muscle pain
- Grinding your teeth
- Speech problems
- Mouth breathing
- Cheek biting
Early intervention is ideal because correcting these problems leads to reduced dental issues as your child grow. Their teeth have a better chance of developing properly, their arches grow appropriately, and they may not need teeth pulled in the future. But even adult orthodontic treatment leads to a host of benefits, such as:
- Improved self-esteem and confidence
- Clearer speech
- Easier breathing as airways are less constricted
- Better overall health due to an increase in nasal breathing
- Fewer headaches
- Eliminating many earaches
