There are several reasons why having a straight smile is advantageous. Besides creating a beautiful smile with straight teeth, there are oral health reasons as well. Misaligned teeth cause a host of dental issues that can wreck your oral health. Orthodontics can eliminate these problems while giving you a beautiful smile.
At Parklane Family Dentistry, we offer a couple of options for orthodontic treatment to help you attain that smile. Not everyone with misaligned teeth needs to have their teeth straightened with metal wires and brackets. Dentistry has evolved to the point that, in many cases, teeth can be straightened using less invasive methods.
To be sure, there are instances where the best method for bringing the teeth into alignment will still be resorting to the traditional method. Severe misalignment involving rear teeth is one such scenario. However, mild cases of misalignment may not call for such drastic measures and can often be remedied with newer orthodontic methods. At Parklane Family Dentistry we offer:
Causes and Cures for Misalignment
Permanent teeth can be out of alignment for a variety of reasons. Physical issues such as tooth size and bone growth can be a factor. Sometimes the jaw bone is not large enough to hold all the teeth so crowding occurs. Other people may end up with smaller teeth in a larger jaw. This creates small gaps between teeth. Both scenarios create food traps and make it difficult to adequately keep all the teeth clean.
Thumb sucking or drinking from a bottle for prolonged periods can actually cause the growing bone to become misshapen. This can lead to teeth being out of alignment. Missing teeth will also cause teeth to move out of alignment. Fortunately, there are dental care services to correct these issues and bring teeth back into alignment.
