Are you looking to straighten your teeth? Orthodontics is a field of dental specialty that involves correcting the alignment of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment may be recommended if you have:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- A bad bite, such as an overbite, underbite, crossbite or open bite
Orthodontics provides both cosmetic and health benefits. Properly aligned teeth not only look more attractive but are also easier to keep clean and healthy. Brushing and flossing are easier when your teeth are straight, which reduces your risk of developing cavities, gum disease or other dental problems.
Orthodontics can also be provided for patients of all ages. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their initial orthodontic screening at age 7, but many patients receive treatment in their teenage years, and an increasing number of adults are also seeking orthodontic treatment. The fact of the matter is that as long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you will be able to receive orthodontic treatment.
