How to Know If You Should See an Orthodontist

Sometimes, it’s easy to know whether or not you need to visit an orthodontist. Other times, it’s not so simple. An orthodontist will help you correct irregularities in your teeth or jaw.  If you’ve never visited an orthodontist, an initial consultation is crucial to plan your treatment.  

Young children should also visit an orthodontist sooner rather than later, while the child’s mouth is still growing and developing. An orthodontist can help catch any concern developments early to make sure your child is on the right path to a straight and healthy smile. 

No matter where you are on life’s journey, some signs you should visit your local orthodontist include:

Overbite or Underbite

Overbites and underbites are characterized by the jaws resting at odd angles. For example, when you have an overbite, your upper front teeth overlap your lower front teeth. Bite misalignments can lead to premature tooth wear and potential jaw pain.

Open bite or Crossbite

An open bite malocclusion can make it difficult to eat food since the top and bottom teeth do not touch. Crossbites, on the other hand, cause teeth to wear unevenly due to the top and bottom teeth being out of sync with each side of the mouth.

Crooked and Crowded Teeth

Misaligned teeth can lead to bad breath, tooth decay, chronic headaches, and gum disease. Plus, when your smile doesn’t align naturally, it can affect your appearance.

Jaw Misalignment

An improperly aligned jaw can lead to chronic jaw pain and Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ). TMJ leads to excessive jaw pain, making it difficult to chew and can even cause potential lockjaw.

Large Dental Gaps

Closing gaps between teeth can help prevent gum tissue inflammation, bad breath, infection, and plaque development.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment & Appliances

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help correct your bite and enhance your teeth. We can identify the best plan for your specific needs to address small misalignments or fix severe dental cases.

When it comes to orthodontics, the sooner you come in for a visit, the better. Please schedule a consultation as quickly as possible to help correct dental issues before they lead to chronic pain or expensive consequences.

Early Treatment

Early orthodontic treatment is crucial to make sure your child’s teeth properly grow and develop. Early treatment can help detect trouble spots and allows orthodontists to intervene before small concerns become severe issues. Schedule your initial evaluation today!

Retainers

Retainers are essential to encourage your teeth to stay in the correct position following orthodontic treatment. If you need a new retainer or feel something is off, come in for an evaluation to make sure your retainer is helping you rather than hurting you.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic treatment differs depending on each patient’s unique bite, teeth, and jaw alignment. Most orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, and plastic and gently shift teeth into the correct position and obtain a healthy bite.

It all starts with a consultation. Our orthodontic professionals thoroughly examine your mouth and plan unique treatment plans for you. Plus, we will oversee your treatment each step of the way and help make sure you leave our offices with a future as bright as your smile.
