What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a dental specialty dedicated to correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. An orthodontist may use one or several different approaches to making these corrections.
Contrary to what many people believe, orthodontics isn’t just about improving how you look, although your smile can have a huge impact on your self-confidence and how others perceive you. Jaw misalignment can be a cause of chronic pain, and badly aligned teeth can be more difficult to clean, increasing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
What Options are Available?
Orthodontic treatment typically involves the use of appliances, such as spacers, braces, or headgear. Depending on your needs, or the needs of your child, multiple appliances may be used over the course of treatment.
How do I get started with Orthodontic Treatment?
Treatment begins with an in-depth orthodontic consultation. The orthodontist will review your dental history and perform an examination. From there, the orthodontist will recommend a course of treatment suited to you and your needs. In some cases, you may have several treatment options. At Gentle Dental, we provide you with detailed information about all of your alternatives so you can select the best option for you or your child. And, at Gentle Dental, orthodontic consultations are always offered at no charge.
