What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a dental specialty that treats dental abnormalities and is most commonly used to straighten or realign teeth.  Orthodontists must complete 2 to 3 years of additional education after completing their dental degree.  Although as far back as ancient Egypt people tried different methods of teeth straightening, it did not become a recognized dental specialty until a little over 100 years ago.

Why is Orthodontics Important?

There are many benefits to receiving proper orthodontic care, including:
  • There are many benefits to receiving proper orthodontic care, including:Improved Confidence: Misaligned teeth can make children and adults self-conscious about their smile. A beautiful and healthy smile does wonders for a person’s self-confidence and daily interactions.
  • Jaw Health: Misaligned teeth can have a negative impact on your jaw’s health and functionality. If left untreated, some people develop TMJ and experience jaw pain.
  • Injury Preventions: Some irregularities, such has an overbite, lead to an increased risk of injury. Children tend to be very active, and protruding teeth are more easily damaged.
  • Digestive Health: Irregularities in a person’s bite often leads to food not being chewed appropriately. Over time this can cause problems with the gastrointestinal tract and could result in not enough nutrients getting absorbed into the body.
  • Easier to Clean: Some irregularities make brushing and flossing more difficult, leading to an increase in tooth decay.
  • Lower Dental Costs: Correcting dental issues will improve a person’s dental health throughout his life.
