With traditional orthodontics
The dream of healthy teeth and a perfect smile is becoming a reality to more and more people every day. The number of adults and children taking advantage of orthodontic treatment to improve their dental health and give their self-esteem a boost continues to rise.
Ideally, your top teeth should extend slightly over your bottom teeth and molars should fit together perfectly. Unfortunately, because of an accident, thumbsucking, early loss of teeth, or heredity, this is not the case for many people. Teeth can be crooked, crowded, or twisted, and poor alignment of the top or bottom teeth can result in an overbite, underbite, or cross bite.
Traditional braces are the most commonly accepted treatment for malocclusion (bad bite). Improved appearance is just one reason to correct it – and it’s an important reason as good self-esteem is crucial. Good oral health is also crucial. Straight teeth are easier to clean, so orthodontics makes a great contribution to your optimal oral and overall health.
The search for a perfect smile is not new. The modern science of orthodontics began in the early 1900s and over the following 100+ years, braces made of gold, silver, wood, and ivory have evolved into today’s modern treatments which use state-of-the-art technology to give children and adults a healthy beautiful smile!
