Orthodontics is a focussed branch of dentistry that helps correct your misaligned teeth and jaw to restore and secure a straight smile. At Beautiful Dentistry in Tempe, AZ 85284, we help restore the self-confidence of patients of all ages who have teeth alignment issues through our orthodontic services. We use orthodontics to rectify spacing between teeth, fixing crowding, correct bite, and straighten crooked teeth and speech patterns. In addition, the benefits of straight teeth include healthier gums free of disease and decay.
What Is the Importance of Orthodontics?
If an individual's teeth and jaws are aligned correctly, they are less likely to suffer from dental problems in the long run. Orthodontics can be considered a preventive treatment to avoid more significant issues that impact the patient's dental health or facial appearance. Those getting orthodontic treatments have reduced instances of decay, plaque accumulation, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, among other painful disorders.
What Are the Benefits of Orthodontic Treatments?
- There are several benefits of orthodontics, but their extent varies from patient to patient.
- Enhances your self-esteem and confidence levels.
- Improves a patient's overall oral health.
- Resolves problems such as protruding jaw, a misaligned bite, speech impairment, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
- Monitors the growth of permanent teeth as they erupt.
- Helps patients of every age group.
- Treats facial deformities due to improper jaw alignment, overcrowding, and crooked teeth.
What Are the Types of Orthodontic Appliances?
Traditional metal braces are fabricated from high-grade stainless steel. They use a network of brackets and wires to straighten the teeth. The latest braces use smaller brackets for a more comfortable, aesthetically appealing solution. Metal braces are tough, effective, and versatile such that they can treat practically any orthodontic problem. They make an excellent solution for patients of all age groups.
Ceramic braces comprise brackets made from a transparent ceramic composite material, which allows them to blend in with teeth. This provides a discreet, less evident treatment option that has similar benefits as conventional metal braces. Clear braces can treat almost any orthodontic condition, but they deliver distinct cosmetic advantages.
Invisalign is an innovative treatment that relies on a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. These aligners are fitted directly onto the teeth and are completely transparent, making them almost impossible to notice when worn.
Additionally, Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients are free to take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Invisalign is one of the most inconspicuous and comfortable treatments available, making it a popular option for adult orthodontic treatment.
