Smile Check – Knowing When to See an Orthodontist

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

Chewing, speaking, and biting correctly rely on the ability of your teeth, jaws, and facial muscles to align properly. If they don’t, you need to visit an orthodontist. After graduating from dental school, orthodontists continue their training and education in orthodontics until they complete their residency and are accepted by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). To solve your alignment problems, they use a variety of techniques and appliances such as affordable braces or plastic aligners.

You should seek an orthodontist’s help in the following situations:

  • If You Want to Know Your Options

Experienced orthodontists take all of a patient’s unique needs and preferences into consideration when planning treatment. With access to a full range of techniques and orthodontic appliances, including affordable braces, orthodontists know exactly which tools to use and how well they work in different situations.

  • If You Need Special Treatment

You trust your heart health to a cardiologist, and you should trust your misaligned teeth or jaw to an orthodontist. Like specialists in any field, orthodontists have the in-depth knowledge and experience that can help you get the best possible results with affordable braces or other therapies.

  • If Your Teeth or Bite Aren’t Properly Aligned

When your teeth are misaligned, it can affect the way other parts of your mouth function. Just like a brace keeps a knee or ankle stable and promotes healing after an injury, affordable braces for kids and adults shape long-term oral health and comfort while they create beautiful smiles.

With a correctly aligned bite, you have the ability to bite down, chew, and speak properly. A healthy bite is one of an orthodontist’s top goals for every patient. It is achieved by correcting the position of every element of your mouth, including your teeth, upper and lower jaws, and facial muscles.

Orthodontists envision crooked teeth as an opportunity to correct a health problem at its root. Using their experience and expertise, they carefully formulate a solution that will meet every aesthetic and medical need. A healthy mouth improves your general health, so don’t procrastinate. If it’s time to see an orthodontist, make an appointment today.
