At Absolute Dentistry, we know that misaligned teeth can often lead to more problems down the road, other than just embarrassing smiles. Misaligned teeth can cause receding gums, difficulty in maintaining basic dental care, and an increased risk of cavities (among a variety of other potential troubles). Thus, in cases of malocclusion, also known as a bad bite, straightening your teeth using orthodontic braces may be the best option for your dental health and wellness. And now more than ever, adults have a plethora of options before them when it comes to dental braces!
Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss when compared to teeth that are crowded, crooked or spaced improperly. When your teeth are cared for properly, you have healthier gums and a decreased risk of developing tooth decay!
Correcting how your teeth bite together improves chewing and speech. Properly aligned teeth are also less stressful on the supporting bone and jaw joints.
Most patients appreciate having straight teeth because they feel less self-conscious and more confident about their smile!
There are many different types of braces and the type of braces you choose is decided after consulting our dental team. Today, orthodontic treatment is different from the techniques used in early dentistry. Fortunately, metal bands have been replaced with brackets that are bonded with an adhesive right to the front of the teeth. They’re much more comfortable, smaller in size, and much less noticeable! At Absolute Dentistry, we use a variety of orthodontic systems such as:
