Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth alignment. Teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean and may cause extra stress on the chewing muscles. Also, teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can detract from one’s appearance. There are many benefits from having orthodontic treatment; this can include better oral health, due to cleaning and flossing being much easier; less pain during chewing; and having a more pleasing appearance is also a wonderful gain from having orthodontic treatment.
At 32 Gems Dental we offer Invisalign and Sure Smile Orthodontic treatment, so if you have crowded, crooked or spaced teeth or are just not happy with the appearance then one of these options could be perfect for you.
How do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?
Only your dentist or orthodontist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a dental exam, digital images, an OPG, and photographs, your dentist can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that is just right for you. We offer great alternatives to traditional braces for adults, serial aligners are used to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires and brackets. Aligners are virtually invisible and are removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
