About Orthodontics

What is Orthodontics

Simply put, orthodontics is primarily concerned with studying improper bites and crooked teeth. In some people, bite problems result from tooth irregularities, while other patients struggle with jaw problems. In either case, you may suffer from low levels of confidence and worry about how you look when you smile, and you can experience functional issues as well. For both of these reasons, orthodontists work to correct improper bites, setting you up to keep your teeth for life.

Why see an Orthodontist?

There are a number of significant reasons why you could benefit from seeing an orthodontic specialist instead of a general dentist.

  • Most importantly, an orthodontist can reposition your teeth so that they function more effectively and don’t wear out! If well cared for, functional bites can last a lifetime.
  • You’ll know you’re in safe hands, as orthodontists must complete many challenging years of dental school and undertake an additional three years of university training in order to specialize in orthodontics.
  • If you are insecure about your smile and try to hide your teeth, an orthodontist is uniquely qualified to design a powerfully effective treatment plan that creates a neater, more attractive, healthier smile.
  • Orthodontics can even improve the way your voice sounds and make it easier to chew your food. You might even be able to enjoy foods that you previously found too difficult to eat.
