What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontists specialize in straightening patients’ teeth. They can focus on helping you improve your bite as well as your overall oral health. Orthodontists can also treat problems related to the growth of the facial and jaw structures. The following are some conditions that orthodontists may address:
- Excessive wear and tear of your teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Gaps or spaces in your teeth
- Speech impediments as well as eating difficulties that result from defects with teeth, the jaw, and other facial structures
Benefits of Orthodontics
Many think orthodontists only specialize in providing care designed to help their patients have a beautiful smile. The reality is that their services are also intended to protect the health of your gums and your teeth. When teeth are misaligned or crooked, they create areas that allow bacteria and food particles to accumulate. Gaps between the teeth reduce your protection against harmful bacteria and plaque. In addition, orthodontic care improves your ability to speak clearly and to properly chew your food.
What Kinds of Braces Are Available?
In most cases, it is best for children to have traditional metal braces. They are a key part of pediatric dental care. These braces are designed from stainless steel and adhere to the front of a child’s teeth.
Additionally, we provide the following:
- Gold Braces
- Ceramic Braces (Clear Braces)
- Invisalign® Braces
Who Can Benefit from Orthodontic Treatment?
Anyone who has gaps in their teeth, crowding teeth, or similar issues is likely to be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. The following are just a couple reasons why children, teenagers, and adults choose to receive orthodontic treatment from Orthodontic Specialists of Florida:
- When your teeth are crooked, it is difficult to chew or eat.
- Orthodontic treatment improves oral hygiene, thereby fighting tooth decay.
- When teeth are straightened with braces, the result is a long-term improved smile and increased self-confidence.
